'If It's Football, It's Vital'

Shearer speaks at last!

Finally, following the Ashley Sunday Times' revalations and four days of talks, Alan Shearer has released a statement regarding his future. Our all-time leading goalscorer and now ex-gaffer denied the 3m salary rumours and other kitty demands saying:

'I met Mike Ashley and Derek Llambias last week and we discussed at length the future of Newcastle United and my desire to be the manager moving forward.

I made no demands but there were obvious conditions. We simply proposed an honest evaluation of what was needed to get the club back into the Premiership whilst building solid foundations for the future.

I fully understand Mike Ashley's decision to sell the club as he feels it's now in the best interest of the club and the fans. I hope to know more by the end of the week.'

could never understand why he was so adament that he wasn't going to be your boss come the new season? Hopefully the situation will be sorted quickly so that plans can be made for the summer, then again with that pratt Ashley wanting a sale as well, things might be up in the air for some time to come mighten they? Shame the fans don't attempt to set up a vehicle to buy the club themselves... big big work for whoever fronted it but not impossible!
