Post Fulham: Shearer

Post Fulham: Shearer

With Boro and Hull drawing, leaving NUFC in the bottom three, it was pretty much a worst case scenario day for Alan Shearer. Seeing our most consistent defender sent off following his failure to deal with a routine 50 yard punt from Fulham was just symptomatic of the season so far. Speaking post match, Alan Shearer said:

'It is going to the last fixture of the season and we have to get a better result than Hull. But I'm sure there will be one or two twists and turns on the final day. We are bitterly disappointed at the disallowed goal. I have seen it and I can't see anything that's wrong with it.

Probably what has happened is the goal on Monday night from Steven Taylor has been highlighted that much this week that one or two people have thought, 'We might try to clamp down on that this weekend'.

You are allowed to put someone in front of the goalkeeper - I am not aware that you are meant to get out of the way of him.I thought their player was blocking him more than Kevin Nolan was, so I am disappointed with that. I thought he (Howard Webb) got the big decision wrong today. When he looks at it, he might think that as well.

After the sending off we gave it a right good go. My emotions were up and down and I was not enjoying it for the last half hour. We threw everything at them.'

I'll tell you who made the wrong decision that was Shrearer thinking he could come in and save your miserable hides. Clearly a very wrong decision and by this time next week he will be gone.
