Legend sums up relegation plight
With the rot having set in big style since he retired, Alan Shearer looked a perturbed man on Match of the Day last night when asked to comment on the Blackburn smashing yesterday. Shearer said:
"It's very frustrating to see the goals they conceded, to see the players fighting amongst themselves. It's not looking good,' They are out of the cup, the manager gets sent off in midweek, Nicky Butt gets sent off, they concede three goals, players want to leave.
It's not a nice situation. I'm worried and I really don't think I'm the only one. I think there are 52,000 people worried as well at the current situation."
