Alan Shearer Return To Newcastle – He’ll Not Get The Chance

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.

Comments welcome.

    You know what, I can see it being Shearer.

    MA must think that Shearer will be who the fans want blah blah blah…

    I reckon Shearer…

    Who else is there?

    I’ll still dream for Rijkaard, Koeman or Jol but failing any of them, which it wont be, i’d sooner have Shearer than most others being spoken of.

    What another bloody crap situation we’re in thanks to Fatty.

    It can’t be Shearer

    “Regrettably the board now feels that an individual with more managerial experience is needed to take the club forward.”

    Unless of course the board are liars.

    It was disaster first time, so he might want second chance to prove us all wrong.
    But is he more experienced than Hoots?
    It can all end in tears, again.
    It can all end in tears again, anyway.
    No way out of this vicious circle!
    Damn you FMA & DL!

    Shearer is not experienced enough he needs to go and learn his trade somewhere else before he comes here again.. Hughton should not have been sacked he was a brilliant manager and I hope ashley chokes on his tea tonight the fat prick

    If Ashley sacked Hughton because of his lack of experience so why Shearer ? It’s not make sense at all.

    thump – william hill and sky are still taking bets on pardew.
    Just said on Skysports news we’ve been through 13 managers in 13 years. We’ll never find consistancy with that record, when will our board learn from the likes of Arsenal and Man Utd and that we need some sort of stability.

    If it came down to Shearer or Pardew who would you choose? The jury is still out on Shearer as manager, and Pardew’s record makes Souness look like Bobby Robson. The more names I hear, the more depressed I am becoming with this whole affair. Lets face it, there will probs be nothing until the transfer window has closed, then it’s welcome back JFK… I’m going to get very drunk tonight and possibly beat somebody or something up.

    We are well and truely F***ED. I’m sorry but Chris was doing well in a difficult position. Won’t forget the Aston Villa, 5under1and, Everton and Arsenal games such highs. If Pardew is the next manager it’s a death sentence to the club. So long Coloccini, Enrique, Barton, Nolan, Ben Arfa, Carroll, Tiote, Jonas

    Joined Nolan mate. Utter joke.

    @Black n WhiteSi: My brother told me about it, dunno who it is who has stopped like.

    This is an absolute farce and I honestly can’t describe how pissed off I am with this. We’re in 11th ffs, yes we aren’t far from the bottom on points but that’s football! He can’t help how the league has turned out and everybody is going after the other, it’s always been the smaller teams that bother us (12 point loss anybody?) and we over perform when we’re doing well.

    Bugger this, I’m getting a few drinks in 🙁

    If it`s Pardew that`s me finished with them, after decades doling out money on tickets, sponsorship and merchandise they`ve had their last. I mean bloody hell surely Ashley must have known that Hoots was another bad result away from the sack, yet doesn`t appear to have a successor lined up. Beardsley and Stone are the only buggas left, what a total cock up!!

    @CT: I think you’re wrong – this has been on the cards for a long time – more or less since O’Neil was sacked. All the insiders were saying Hoots was on the cards for a sacking and he’s been one result away for a long time. Think about how the fat b*sta*d took over the …club, he did it all wrong and didn’t look over the books – he just bought the majority shares and went on to buy the club.

    Phase 1: Peter Beardsley appointed reserve coach.
    Phase 2: Steve Stone brought in as first team coach – immediately steps up as unofficial assistant manager.
    Phase 3: Hughton sacked.
    Phase 4: Beardsley and Stone appointed interim manager and assistant (respectively).

    I know it sounds like a conspiracy theory but I can’t believe this is all just coincidence with the fat c**ts history.

    Ha ha ha ha ha ha haha… laughing stock. I knew he wanted to sack Hoots but I wrote yesterday it would not be for a few more weeks. Hoots does not merit the sack. The fat man gave him no support and no cash and expected us to be top six. Joke club which I now support. We will be relegated again because of this fat twat and we deserve it. Who is lined up? Allegedly Alan Pardew. Ha ha ha ha ha ha. Are we supposed to get behind him. For once in your life Ed Harrison get out of the crevice between the owner’s buttocks and call it as it is. This man is intent on devastating this club. We need a campaign to get him out. You should be leading it instead of blowing sunshine up his nether parts. If that means boycotting the club then so be it. Ed, so Hoots is going nowhere is he? And we are going in the right direction are we? You’ll call it right one of these days on the laws of probability. And another thing, the fat man has not got it mostly right these last 18 months. He has got it terribly wrong. Pull your head out of his hole.

    Real Sorry to see CH go but truth be told he did his best but he’s still not ready to be a PL manager especially for a club like NUFC, the fans want trophies and CH was not the man that was going to bring them. As for replacements to be honest i would like to see the likes of Frank Rikjaard or a more international coach coming in. fact be noted all the top four teams have international managers their’s not many good english managers aside from Harry Rednapp/Steve Bruce(irish)…..point proven i think.

    I’ve being an avid Toon fan since I was 5, Mr Hughton was the first manager to fill me with belief, sanguinity since SBR, the exhilarating frisson of blood coarsing through my veins when thumping both Villa and the enemy, that hadn’t being felt for all to long! The Fat Controller seems to want to steamroll every last grain of hope I have for our beloved club from us. Chris will be fondly remembered and held in high regards. As for the next manager, I actually don’t care anymore, it’s a travesty.

    He won't reassess anything. He had us furious over Wise, Keenan, Shearer, etc – and he just doesn't care. Chris really rallied the troops last season, got them playing for one another, and now we're going 2 steps back. Unbelievable!

    HUGHTON FAIR WELL YOU’LL BE MISSED.. you weren’t given a proper chance .. but you did get us back into the premiership the first time of asking and made it look easy ..
    to follow on I hope its Martin Jol .. my favourite for the position but can’t go wrong with Martin o’Niell .. but Pardew .. give it a break .. can Ashley be that thick ?? If he’s doing things right this time he’s had somebody lined up for a while and he’s now gonna back him in Jan .. lets hope so..

    Lads, i don’t get it lets see what Ashley does, all this doom and gloom is just getting us all worked up and yes i know what his track record is like since he bought the club but lets hope he has learned from his mistakes in the past. Again CH was a good Championship manager and at times since august looked like making in the PL but it was’nt to be. He Ashley caught it early (i hope), because truth be told we should be 4/5 at this stage of the season (Wolves/Blackpool/Wigan). If he brings in a hapless manager then we can crucify him but at this stage lets just all think about getting 3pts from the pools. HWTL

    How long will it take some people to realise that you judge people on what they do, and not what they say.

    As far as I can see the Fat Git has done nothing positive since he bought the club. He was after a quick buck that fell through, and he has savaged the club ever since. For F–ks sake, WAKE UP.
