Newcastle Fans Hope Shearer Gets Go Ahead Tomorrow

Not much additional news on the Alan Shearer meeting in London tomorrow.


Alan Shearer – big meeting tomorrow – will he get the go ahead?

That could be a crucial meeting with Alan due to meet with the Newcastle hierarchy – Mike Ashley ands Derek Llambias,  to be brought up to date on the Newcastle sale.

Also we are being told the two consortia in the lead for the club, and we have no idea who they may be, both want to appoint Alan immediately to the get the Newcastle ship moving again.

We are no longer referring to the Newcastle mansion anymore, because it must have been burned to the ground by now.  We’ve lost 32 rooms to the fire. 😀

The current captain of the ship, the woeful Mike Ashley has had the ship flailing in the ocean since we were relegated 32 days, and it has had no direction and certainly no leadership.

That could all change tomorrow, but if things continue as they’ve been since we were relegated, we’ll hear nothing at all, and will in all likelihood need to wait until next week for some big news.

Having said that, let’s hope we are wrong (again) and that we hear something tomorrow, maybe just a press release about what’s going on.

Once the new owners are unveiled and Alan is brought in as manager, we hope to have a press conference, and even a radio talk-in, so the Newcastle fans can hear what the road ahead looks like for the club.

That’s the right thing to do for many reasons, as the new owner tries to get a good bonding with their customers, the Newcastle supporters, easily the best in the land.

Who else would turn up in such numbers in the last few games of the season, and then after being relegated cheer Alan Shearer – it could only happen at Newcastle, which is a very special place for football.

And players know that, so we still think Newcastle will still be able to attract some good players this summer.

But one thing Alan will insist on, and is one big reason we were relegated last season – they must be coming to Newcastle because they want to be here, and they must have the right temperament and character, and fight for the club in every single game.

That didn’t happen last season, and we have all witnessed the consequences of that gutless play.

Comments welcome.

    We will all be on tenterhooks tomorrow especially as we have only the shed left to set fire to. Gossip says Stoke want Owen and Smith, and Hull want Owen and Nolan. Are these clubs really that determined to get relegated? The meeting in London must mean something serious but to be honest why cannot Ashley and Llambias come to Newcastle – that is where the club is after all?

    Can you test your patience more? These guys have made fool of us all from last one year. I can not just wait this to be over.

    Does anybody know where the London meeting will take place? And at what time? Is it a milestone meeting or is Alan just being summoned to be told another load of old flannel? Hopefully the positive outcome will be an evening press conference to announce the new owners with Alan as manager. Any chance the mackems will try and recruit Owen?

    My guess is that Ashley and Llambias’ll be meeting with Seymour Pierce to:
    a) discuss the latest position then

    b) meet with Shearer

    c) who I trust will then be introduced to the preferred bidder and then

    d) hopefully appoint him to get the ship onto an even keel.

    Fingers crossed for a good news day.

    Could be worse though, the rumour mill says that if the rival to LeTissier’s consortium buys Southampton, the club may end up being managed by Peter Reid…. bless ’em!

    Hopefully something good will come out of the meeting. But can’t see any official news coming out for a week or so. After the start of July we will probably see more of what is going on, if anything! At least come end of the month we will not have Owen, Viduka, Geremi and Cacapa! I suppose we will have to wait and see!

    Lesh is probably right. Seymour Pierce are located at 20 Old Bailey in the city of London.

    What is necessary at the moment is what has been continously asked of us for the past two years… patience (something we are all fast running out of!).

    Hopefully it’s just one more day before we have a fresh start and start ripping this squad apart and rebuilding from square one.

    Keep the faith lads! Shearer’s going to take over soon and start getting us back where we belong!

    Trust me Shearer wont waste his time going to london to be told no go – something is happening.

    If its what we want to hear – that is the 100 million pound question.

    Will we hear anything tomorrow via press release. I do hope so – I really do as we are in the last week before the boys get back to training.

    COME ON!!!!

    we won’t hear anything tomorrow.

    Shearer will be told what’s going on, and we might here something early next week at the best. I’ve got a feeling shearer will be appointed but it could be good or bad news with regards to the sale.

    Not sure we’ll here anything tomorrow, but you never know. At least the various consortia will have seen the details of Shearer’s salary, support staff and transfer requirements to peruse in advance, so if they agree hopefully its a done deal, he agrees tomorrow and we can be informed pronto. If only it could be that simple…

    Well, we all now know that Club Secretary, Lee Charnley was in London on Tuesday – so two and two together is at least now making four, for a change. I’m confident we’ll hear something by Monday at the latest.

    “Easily the best in the land” ?
    Quite a statement concerning a group who are more or less responsible for getting rid of the last god knows how many managers and out of favor players.
    Ed. self praise is no recomendation, all clubs make the same claim and believe it, as far as late season support, could it be they had allready paid for their seats?
    As for Shearer, a? could be succesfull but one win out of the last eight is not much of a reference.
    He is however the designated messiah and I suppose we will have to go with the flow.
    Instead of making the claim” the best supporters”, how about the most expectant !

    I would be very suprised if there was any kind of phenomenal news tomorrow. I’m expecting a last-minute announcement on Tuesday afternoon.
    Don’t get your hopes up lads. You’ll just be depressed when nothing happens.
