In Alan Shearer´s column in The Sun today he blasts the Newcastle United club and especially takes a shot at Chief Scout Graham Carr, who is in charge of all the transfers at Newcastle, which he seems to have assumed control of over in the last couple of years, maybe because of the vacuum of leadership at the club.
But Newcastle have been one of the most mismanaged clubs this season in all of the Football League, never mind just the Premier League, and it´s just frightening when you look at the ineptitude and complete incompetence of those running the club.
We have done it all to ourselves and that´s even after spending over £80M on new players since last summer – it´s all very scary.
Those at the top have shamed our club and yes, it´s really that bad.
Alan Shearer – takes a blast at Newcastle
This is what Alan has said in The Sun today:
“They have spent £80M on players this season and, at the moment, Jonjo Shelvey looks like the only good investment.”
“The person who never seems to get a mention in this whole mess is Chief Scout Graham Carr.”
“He holds a lot of power in terms of recruiting and selling players — and has quite frankly made a pig’s ear of it.”
“The most shameful slur anyone can possibly aim at a professional player is that they simply don’t care about their club.”
“But today that can be aimed at 90% of Newcastle’s players.” “Their pathetic performance against Bournemouth proved it once and for all.”
“Was I surprised by it? I shouldn’t have been after the dross that has been served up by the team this season.”
“But still I expected so much more in a must-win game.” “Steve was very lucky to get this job after overseeing Derby’s implosion last season.”
“For some time now he has looked powerless to stop a slide into the Championship. Because that is where I am convinced my club is heading now.”
It´s probably good that someone with the stature of Alan Shearer takes a shot full on against the club – and how they are run – because they deserve it.
Now on a lighter note – when are we going to announce that McClaren has been fired and Jose Mourinho has signed a five year deal at the club?
