Shearer Worried About Newcastle This Season

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

Picky, picky.

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.

    we back in the hunt for Leicester clash,hopefully unscratched…oop! oop!
    Pards,can u still hang on ?

    Dream Coaches :

    Jurgen klopp : Did great job to return BvB to one time great and fame .I like his player management and personality.Unlikely to come here but u never know.His current club are struggling in the bundesliga but I don’t see they will fire him lightly. He is like sir Alex to them.but again not impossible as every mgr wants to manage in UK.
    Chris Galtier: I stated many times,did great job at st.Etienne since he took over 4yrs ago.Managed to finish b/n 3rd and 7th in those 4yrs,With unknown young players.Able to produce the likes of PEA,payet,Zuma,Matuidi, etc etc..
    perfect for long term stability of our club.
    Rudi Garcia: flying with Roma currently. But if he don’t win the league title this year,he may be forced to change his coaching career by himself. Again,everyone wants to manage in England,so he may accept if we offer him the chance,u never know..
    Ralf Ralgnick: Former Hoffenhiem and schalke coach.Did great job while at Hoff’m, almost won the bundrsliga title back in 2010 or 2011,b4 his dream snatched by Bayern I think.Calm and good tactician.
    Applied the mgrs vacancy at Everton when Moyes left for mu,but became second best after Martinez.
    He currently is DOF in some club in Austria but good option to consider than pulis or Bruce..
    Sven G.Erickson: I don’t know his coaching career much but did well in Italy and England national team.Better than McLaren,pulis,Bruce,and Di Mateo
    IMO.managed short time in BPL .I don’t remember why he left MC but still experienced.

    other options: Remi Garde,Thomas Tuchell,Eric Garrets,Unai Emery…

    Of all,Galtier is the favorite if pard leaves because we are working mostly with french players and our scouting mission is still France vastly. I am sure Big Mike will consider that…

    Get a grip, this is Newcastle United and there’s no way in this world that we should even consider your suggestions.

    Managers like Klopp et al are ten a penny, mediocre, no imagination, boring, not good enough for the Club.

    We need a big name who’s visionary, bright, lucid, determined to win things.

    Ashley shares that vision and IF Pardew’s shipped out, he’ll move quick to get his man installed within days. Be ready, be ready to welcome one of the best………. Joe Kinnear or even Beardo at a pinch.

    Whoooeeeeeeh, happy days.

    Shearer,true Newcastle legend,all time my best striker in England…
    “things should change quickly, very quickly,otherwise going to be a long hard season for us..”

    “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.”

    “The quicker we can get out of it the better.”

    I agree with all of that, but u don’t have to be too negative Alan? Tomorrow is another new day!!

    @lesh: Better yet: Shola makes shock return as player/manager.

    Im looking foward to January when we rectify our latest disgraceful gambles.

    Ben Arfa
    No replacements
    Riviere as a replacement for Remy, De Jong and Shola. I don’t see Perez or this other lad, lol I don’t even remember his name as 1st team Prem quality.

    Hopefully fixing these issues is not at the expense of Tiote.

    I don’t buy into this relegation talk, not after seven games, but Alans bang on about one thing, it has been poor. The players/coaching staff have to take the blame. But Ashley also for his hungry nature and gambles.

    All I want is for the club to cut out these gambles and set us up properly at the start of a season to give us the best possible chance. Correct the gaping holes with capable cover.

    Spend what we have. There hard work like.

    Thump – Shola makes shock return as player/manager?

    You know someone in the know?

    Now that sounds like a good appointment and would tick a number of political boxes.

    And, what would the press make of the fans if they objected to Shola, whether before or in his period of appointment?

    Now if Ashley or Bullshit Bishop really want to spike any malcontent, appointing Shola’s the way to do it!

    Guardiola, Rijkard, Inzaghi, even Mourinho became successful managers because they learned from the best and has worked with the best. The best way to get new manager is to see their previous employment and who were their bosses.
    Next great manager could be Zidane.
    I think Edwin Van der Sar could be a good manager, he was under Fergie, Van Gaal, Rijkard.
    Paolo Maldini, Zanetti, Ambrossini, Nesta, Walter Samuel, Pavel Nedved, etc.

    another successful manager is Antonio Conte, he was working under Lippi when he was a player, worked under great manager.

    At the start of the season I thought Pardew would last until after the Liverpool game.

    A hiding at home to Liverpool after poor efforts against Leicester and Spurs would surely seal Pardew’s fate.

    Shearer should pipe up and criticise Pardew and The Fat Man, he has the perfect soap box to do so.

    Ed, man,
    You lost my little challenge! Ok, here it is again:
    Your challenge is to not write the word ‘Cabaye’ for a month… here we go!
    Best of luck.

    Bullshit Bishop’s ploy uncovered:

    If recent attempts at curbing fan and media scrutiny are the best he can do, then if I were Ashley, I’d be having him escorted from the premises along with Pardew.

    The apology for a spinner’d be better advised to do something that’d help Ashley – listen to the critics, consider their views, present them to Ashley with suggestions as to how he might modify his priorities and thus improve his image.

    But, that’s not the way mercenaries such as him work – they’re just as bad as many of their clients, willing to take their money without any hesitation or thought that it may be their clients that need to change their ways.

    They can be compared with the delightful Josef Goebells who did such an admirable job for a certain Herr Hitler!
