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

Wednesday duo linked with Newcastle United

Alan Shearer has identified Sheffield Wednesday duo Mark Beevers, and Tommy Spurr as potential replacements for outward-bound Sebastien Bassong, and Jose Enrique, according to an unnamed source at St James' Park.

Shearer has, according to the source, been compiling a list of targets and viewing DVDs of the players in action for much of the last month.

In addition, Big Al also wants to sign Tottenham Hotspurs right-back Chris Gunter, and Leeds United striker Jermaine Beckford.

The 38-year-old potential-boss has also outlined a fall-back plan if he fails to land his initial targets with former Magpie Andy Griffin, and Damian Delaney of QPR lined-up.

Several loan deals are also said to be looming, with Everton midfielder Jack Rodwell, Manchester United defender James Chester, and Chelsea youth Franco di Santo linked.

Shearer expects an announcement specifying whether he has a shot at the United manager's post or otherwise by this time next week.

Any news pertaining to Chris Hughton taking charge of pre-season will also be released by that time - if Alan Shearer is not appointed.

Just exactly how has "it emerged"?

Some people want the public to know. It is a curse for the club execs, and a blessing for journalists and the fans.

Would be a brilliant signing locking down the lefthandside of the defence for the next decade. Make it happen.

You couldnt get any more deluded if you tried. Why the f00k would they want to lower their standard of football. Will somebody shake Shearer because he's obviously having a dream.
Skeggy Owl
Don't mess with Skeggy, he's got a terrible temper!

Anger is a negative emotion, Keggy. If they sign, be angry at them. There's no reason to ride on Shearer or the Toon fans. There's no statute to limitation on bidding for players.

Damn....pls sell the club..dont let the fans waiting day by day...there are lots of preparation to be done before pre-season friendlies....god damn..appoint AS...so he can do his job...he is now willing to search his transfer targets without knowing if he can get the job or not..this is what i called PASSION..for this once-great club..
