Alan Shearer was inducted into Newcastle’s new Hall of Fame tbis week along with two other legendary strikers – Jackie Milburn and Hughie Gallagher – and Peter Beardsley and Bobby Robson – were also inducted – and the former Newcastle number 9 has said today that he never thought Newcastle were ever really in any relegation trouble.
Alan Shearer – no worries about relegation
The Bleacher report has recently looked at all the remaining league games and have forecast who will be relegated, and they have Newcastle getting 11 points from their last eight league games and finishing in 11th place on 44 points – and that would be good – but it would be better to break into the top half.
The defeat at Wigan has put a bit of a dent in that possibility however.
The report has Reading, QPR and Aston Villa bring relegated – but we hope Villa can stay up – and we think they will.
This is what Alana has said i the local papers today:
“I don’t think we were ever in danger particularly with the signings we’ve got.” “We’ll be all right, we’ll be fine.” “I have no worries over that at all.”
“Newcastle have spent in January, but hopefully they’ll spend again in the summer.” “When you look at the season they had last time, nobody ever really expected them to replicate it again.”
“Probably in the league, though, we expected to be in a better position than we are. That’ll all be forgotten if they go on and do well in the Europa League.”
It was simply a brilliant move by owner Mike Ashley to bring in those five French players in January, and it just shows what a great job Graham Carr and his team are doing, that they already had them lined up – and two months ago Newcastle showed we now have a smooth operation when it comes to bringing players into the club.
We need a few successive wins to be safe in the league, but somehow we think we’ll get more than 8 points form our remaining eight games which are as follows:
March Sat 30 15:00 A Manchester City April Sun 07 15:00 H Fulham Sun 14 12:00 H Sunderland Sat 20 15:00 A West Brom Sat 27 17:30 H Liverpool May Sat 04 15:00 A West Ham Sun 12 15:00 A QPR Sun 19 16:00 H Arsenal
How many points do you think we’ll get from those last 8 games bearing in m ind we have the two Benfica ties on April 4th and April 11th?
Please sign this petition to get the FA to do their job, following their disappointing decision to do nothing about McManaman’s tackle on Massadio Haidara on Sunday. We have around 22000 signatures in one day – and are nearly half way to the target of 5,000.
