Alan Shearer is simply a Newcastle fan just like the rest of us – and the only thing that sets him part from other Newcastle fans, is that he also happens to be a Newcastle legend. and one of the best strikers Newcastle and England have ever produced.
Alan Shearer – worried about Newcastle
Alan has talked to the Chronicle and he is worried about Newcastle’s form, and certainly this year in the Premier League it has been painful, very painful.
And Alan Shearer believes Newcastle are in danger of relegation this season without ever using that word, and the 44 year-old had this to say to the Chronicle:
“I’m exactly the same as the fans at the minute – I’m one of them.” “I pay for my ticket and I’m the same. I am entitled to my opinion. It hasn’t been pleasant watching to be honest. It’s been poor.”
“It has been poor since January this year. The quicker we can get out of it the better.” “I don’t hold too much hope for us this season. I think it could be a long hard season for us.
“You can make whatever excuses you want – injuries, too many games or confidence.” “Put all of that to one side, the simple fact of the matter is we just have not been good enough.”
“It’s simple. That’s the harsh reality of it. Things have to improve and they have to improve pretty quickly or we could find ourselves in a hole.”
Newcastle seem to be short of big players in the squad after losing Yohan Cabaye, Mathieu Debuchy and Loic Remy this year, and the players we brought in over the summer are finding it (very) tough going in the Premier League.
Here’s our record since the beginning of the year, when we simply haven’t been good enough, and we’ve only won five games and got 20 points in 26 league games.
Season Played Won Lost Drawn 2013-2014 19 5 13 1 2014-2015 7 0 3 4 Totals 26 5 16 5
So unless things change quickly, very quickly, it’s going to be a long hard season for Newcastle fans.
And it will be the third one in a row, although we did start last season very well, but dropped off dramatically in the second half of the season.
And that terrible form has continued so far this season.
It doesn’t look too good at the moment.
