Alan Shearer now thinks that Newcastle can definitely be relegated this season, and that would be for the second time in a short six years, and this time it will not be as easy to get back at out first attempt, because many players would want to leave the club and we cannot see good players wanting to join a Championship side – and we also cannot see Mike Ashley wanting to take a shower on his Newcastle United investment by selling the club when they are in the second division.
We cannot see good players wanting to join Newcastle this summer even if survive in the Premier League, and we cannot see some of our better players wanting to stay – they will want to join a proper football club after the trials and tribulations on Tyneside.
Alan Shearer – Newcastle can go down
Alan Shearer has shifted his position from last week when he didn’t think Newcastle would go down but the lame performance in that second half on Saturday once we went behind, shows clearly it will be difficult to take many points – if any – out of the last four games of the season, after getting only two wins and three draws from 15 league games this year.
This is what Alan has said in The Sun:
“Have no doubts about it – Newcastle are now in real danger of going down.” “I didn’t think so until Saturday but after that performance I can’t actually say with any certainty that we will get another point this season.”
“Why don’t the Newcastle players start taking some responsibility? Because right now they are an embarrassment” “Carver himself has been getting some stick. But he loves the club and I know he is hurting.”
One of the reasons we really like Alan is not only because he was a magnificent player for the club, but he’s straight and says what he means, and it takes somebody of Alan’s status in the game to shame our players.
We hope some of those players at Newcastle take Alan’s words to heart, and start fighting for the team – starting on Saturday.
But we have lost all confidence in John Carver, who is a study in contradictions and he is so out of his depth – that he now wants protection from the abuse (let’s call it severe criticism) coming from the Newcastle fans.
Did he think the fans would be happy with seven defeats in a row and 9 points from the last 45 points we have played for?
And we thought he was tough – because that’s what he keeps telling us.
He’s just completely out of his depth and probably has already lost some of his players with the daft things he comes out with in his interviews.
We’d like to see an experienced manager come in for the last four games before it’s too late – but it may be too late already.
It probably will not happen as guys like Lee Charnley seem to be hiding out and letting the head coach take all the criticism – even though most of the problems have come from the actions they took in January, as well as some actions they didn’t take in January.
It’s the perfect storm building for Newcastle, and having John Carver in sole charge for the last four games of the season, makes it that much more likely we could take the drop.
