Newcastle legend Alan Shearer was born and bred in Newcastle and he’s just like the rest of us – he’s a fan of his famous hometown club Newcastle United.
With one hour to go in last night’s transfer window following our 1-1 home draw against Burnley, he tweeted out his praise for the Newcastle fans – who of course love the club and love Rafa Benitez.
Here’s an old quote from Kevin Keegan that was shown in a new flag unfurled last night:
The ownership again has failed to spend any real money in this transfer window and left things perilously late to bring in two of our three loan signings.
Newcastle have a decent chance to survive now – but Mike Ashley has to sell the club soon.
That’s the real hope of our fans at the moment.
Survive in the Premier League and get new owners in before summer – in that order.
Alan Shearer – thinly veiled criticism of Mike Ashley
Here’s what Alan tweeted last night and you can feel his frustration with those running Newcastle.
So over 11 seasons @NUFC net spend has been £4.5m a season. Throw in the TV money and ever present gate money….?
One hour left to spend some and give them a chance! Well done to the fans tonight for showing their love for the club. Shame others don’t share it. #NUFC
