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.
