Alan Shearer has come out today and said he would still be interested in the Newcastle manager position.
Alan Shearer – interested in job
This is what Alan Shearer said when told of the news this afternoon:
“It’s not good, not good news,” “Despite what happened at Newcastle I loved it and if something was to arise again I would seriously look at it,”
That’s obviously a message to Mike Ashley that he would forget what happened last summer, if he was offered the Newcastle job again, but Ashley has already put himself in a corner by saying he wants an experienced manager in the job, which is the reason he sacked Chris Hughton.
Chris had 18 years of coaching experience before he became manager for the first time at Newcastle, and it showed, but Alan has 7 weeks experience, although he certainly was a good man-manager and could possibly do a long term job at the club.
But that would be the case only if he brought in an experienced manager to assist him, and he would not be the 100% choice of Newcastle fans.
It’s completely obvious that the one job Alan Shearer wants – sometime – is to become manager of Newcastle United, his home town club.
But we doubt very much it will be Alan Shearer, but the rage of Newcastle fans today at the unfair sacking of Chris Hughton, could have Mike Ashley reassess what he’s done.
Mike Ashley has made another colossal blunder.
We hardly think Ashley expected such another uprising against him from the Newcastle fans, which is similar to when he sacked Kevin Keegan in September of 2008.
Mike just doesn’t seem to get it – and he keeps proving that – with his terrible decision making.
We wonder if he can really continue too much longer on Tyneside, after he seemed to do most things right these last 18 months – and Newcastle got a bit of stability and success under Chris Hughton.
But that was Chris Hughton who brought back that stability and team spirit to the Newcastle club.
But screw that – he’s just sacked Chris Hughton, but we have to think he was just waiting for the chance – which is why he wouldn’t give Chris a new contract – it’s looking like that’s what really happened.
We really think now that Chris would have been gone after the Wigan game – if Fab Coloccini hadn’t headed that equalizer in injury time.
And this will be a huge body blow for the players at Newcastle, including the top youngsters Chris was bringing through so well by his excellent coaching, because they will all be as devastated as the Newcastle fans are right now.
Why does Ashley seem to always come across as an enemy of this club?
Wonder if there’s any rich guy who would like to buy the club off Mike – sooner rather than later.
