It´s been a tough season so far for Newcastle fans and that´s coming off the debacle that was the second half of last season after Alan Pardew left the club rather suddenly, a move that took Managing Director Lee Charnley completely by surprise.
Steve McClaren and his coaching staff are showing that Newcastle can play very well at times and even the defense has looked solid at times – which came as a complete shock to some Newcastle fans.
Our good displays however, have only been against the top teams like Manchester United, Arsenal, and Chelsea last Saturday – when we drew 2-2 but should have won that game after being 2-0 up with only 12 minutes to play.
Alan Shearer – maybe we can now move forward and win
So we still haven´t won a game this season and it´s now 18 league games with just one win and that win was on the last day of last season when we won 2-0 against West Ham at St. James’ Park.
Legend Alan Shearer has been as frustrated as any of our fans at the inconsistent form of Newcastle so far this season, but the 45 year-old is hoping after the great performance against Chelsea the team can move forward and maybe even get a win soon.
This is what Alan Shearer told Sky Sports News HQ at the Sir Bobby Robson Celebrity Golf Day:
“It’s been a hard thing to take as probably their two best performances this season have been against Manchester United and Chelsea.”
“Their worst performances were against Watford and Sheffield Wednesday which it doesn’t take a genius to work out.”
“So I am hoping that after that game last weekend, which the players can take confidence from, they can move forward and win a game now.”
Newcastle got their first win in the eighth game of last season and coming up is the eighth game of this season.
So that means we will get our first league win at the Etihad on Saturday.
