Alan Shearer has come out today and said he thinks his home town club will survive in the Premier league for this season.
Alan Shearer – sees goals in current Newcastle side
It’s really sobering when the good news may be that the club avoids relegation for the season, and it’s high time we started to build the club up again so we can have a good shot at securing a European place again.
Shearer was speaking today to The Sun, and he said:
“I look at those clubs staring at the drop and I can’t see goals in a lot of them.”
“But I can see goals in this Newcastle team and that’s why I believe it is too good to go down – and won’t.”
Shearer says lessons must be learned from this season, which is one of the worst ever for the club, and it’s clear that our image had taken a complete hammering this season, with all the bad things that have happened, since last September.
“Then we will need to really start again because, to be quite frank, people have been laughing at this club this season.”
“There have been a load of mistakes both on and off the pitch and everyone has to learn from them.”
We’d love to see Shearer try to help out at the club by maybe doin g acouple of days a week coaching at the club, but Alan may have been completely turned off by the antics of Mike Ashley, who has hardly covered himself in glory these last 5 months, and has taken the club to it’s lowest ebb for many a year.
Alan seems confident that Newcastle can get another 12 points which he thinks will be good enough to ensure their Premier League survival for this season.
“The pressure will be on Newcastle more than any of the others because of big club syndrome.”
“The club are going to need at least three wins and three draws.”
Newcastle are currently 13th in the league on 27 points, four points ahead of Blackburn Rovers, who are 3rd bottom.
And with injured players on the way back we should be able to do a lot better than of late.
But to stay up, we will need to do a lot better than of late.
Howay The Lads!!
