Does Shearer Want To Keep Lovenkrands At Newcastle?

We had thought that Shearer, before he took his enforced hiatus to nowhere land four weeks ago, had wanted to keep Perter Lovenkrands at Newcastle.


Peter Lovenkrands – we hope he stays on Tyneside

But today the Newcastle Journal is reporting that Peter is not one of those on the list that Alan wanted to keep at the club, and if that’s true that would be a surprise.

Peter showed he can score goals and also is a good footballer with that little bit of class that makes all the difference in a player.

But we would at least have expected Newcastle to have been in contact with the player to let him know whether they wanted him or not, and whether they were going to draw up a new contract for him.

But like Coloccini’s agent told us yesterday, there has apparently been no contact from Mike Ashley or Derek Llambias with any of the players over the last 4 weeks or so.

So we’re not surprised if Peter starts to look around, and he talked yesterday of the possibility of signing for Sunderland which is just 9 miles from Newcastle, and is reachable by the metro.

Peter said:

“Sunderland is certainly an interesting club. The city is near Newcastle, where we have settled fine, and it would be attractive to stay in northern England

” I would not mind to continue to play in England and particularly in the Premier League.”

It’s interesting he says he wants to play in the Premier League.

And of course there is nothing to say Sunderland would be interested in signing Peter, but we think he would be decent signing for any lower half Premier League club, but we’d really like to see him stay on Tyneside.

But until the latest Newcastle soap opera comes to an end, who’s to know?

    When Roeder was manager, there was only a certain period he was allowed to operate without dispensation because he had to get his UEFA pro license. How many weeks was that, and does anyone at the club have that license at this time? If not then a new manager should be forced through very soon, was that not 6 weeks or so that was the limit? And does it only apply to Premier League teams?

    Alan Shearer is 100% our next manager. I asked him last night in our marque at gosforth races. He was an hour late arriving due to being in a meeting with the club. He then spent an hour on his phone. so after all that and a few pints i walked up to him and asked him outright, he said “yes” but just awaiting the completion of due dillegence. Thats all he could say.

    Hobs – you only need a UEFA Pro-Licence to manage in the top Euroepan leagues. Shearer as far as I’m aware has the A Licence, and the Pro Licence takes 180 hours over a year. UEFA wants managers to have a years experience after the course, but it’s not a requirement. So Shearer could take the job and do the licence this season without any problems.

    I think it’s 12 weeks though it can maybe be extended like they did for Southgate. But it only applies to the Premier League.

    Stupid rule anyway, Ferguson and others don’t have it, they have just been managers for so long they are exempt. If you are good enough, you should just be able to do the job.
