Alan Shearer – looking to manage elsewhere

Alan is apparently looking aorund for an opportunity to manage some club, and seems to have given up on becoming the Newcastle manager, at least in the short term.

And he’s not interested in the open manager position at nearby Middlesbrough.

A source close to Shearer said today:

“Alan has not shown any interest in the Middlesbrough job, but he is starting to look around and he will keep his options open.”

“He wanted the Newcastle job and he has waited a long time, but it hasn’t been offered to him and now he will wish Chris Hughton all the best and move on to other things.”

“The news that Chris Hughton is set to be offered the job permanently has just confirmed what he already suspected. He doesn’t think there is any chance of a takeover going through now.”

Alan had hopped thsat Barry Moat could have bought the club but it looks like Barry just doesn’t have the money, and the full time appointment of Hughton will signal the end of Moat’s bid to buy the club.

However, sources close to the deal says that talks are ongoing with Ashley in order to try and reach some workable compromise, but we cannot believe these will lead to anything at this late stage.

The Newcastle great will get the chance to gain some managerial experience elsewhere before, presumably, he finally takes over at Newcastle.

And that may be as soon as Mikle Ashley sells the club – whenever that may be.

Moat is expecting to hear whether his bid has been accepted by the end of the week, but we’ll not hold our breath on that one.

It is the obvious next step for Alan is to manage another club, since he seems to have set his heart on management.

Even though he was unsuccessful in saving Newcastle he obviously loved the challenge of management – and for the good of  Newcastle – we have to hope he ia a future great manager in the making.

    “We want Alan as manager, 110%”

    Please remind us who said that? Was it PR much like the Keegan-realted assurances?

    Another time then Alan.

    As if Boro would have taken a chance on another in-experienced manager!! Shearers record at Newcastle last season repeated over the other 30 games would have meant an even lower points total than that actually achieved. Think Steve Gibson is a better chairman than to overlook that fact

    People keep on about the Moat bid & hearing summit later this week but no one is mentioning the supposed bid from the Starr Foundation fronted by Sheard, so what’s happened to their ‘Supper Expecting’ their bid will go through soon approach???

    I think the whole thing is bogus, Moat, Sheard, Americans, S. African, Indians, Saudi’s, Brits or anyone else who’s supposedly put a bid in for us, I think Ashley has been living in cloud cuckoo land for these past 2 years!!!

    Many people have said that Alan Shearer should get experience of management with a club in the lower divisions. I have found the ideal club for him. It is called Newcastle United!

    We should just hope anyone buy us from hands of Mike. This guy is joke
