General Lee signals Shearer's last stand

After nearly two months of lies, lies and more lies from the inept management structure at SJP, it seems as if Alan Shearer is closer than ever to returning to the BBC and kissing goodbye to his Newcastle dream. As Coaches Chris and Colin offer absolutely nothing in the way of dominant leadership, Shearer's big pal Rob Lee has no doubt let slip the fact that the next two weeks will determine whether Shearer takes charge at all during 2009/10. Lee said:

'I speak to Alan every day and he`s frustrated to say the least. He`s coming to the end of his tether now. He`s waited for ages and been told that things were due to happen, but nothing has and he`s very frustrated.

He organised all the pre-season games at the end of last season but he also had targets in mind that he wanted to bring in to the club. Now it looks like he will miss out on them.

I`m amazed he hasn`t already told Newcastle that he doesn`t want the job any more, but there will come a point where he says, 'You`re too late`.

He still wants the job desperately but you can`t expect someone like that to wait forever. He`s not daft and they`ve had ample time to sort something out.

Only half the stadium has been sold as season tickets and for a club the size of Newcastle that is bad. They`re in danger of being in the same situation as Leeds, who are stuck in League One and can`t get out.

It could take a long time to sort themselves out, but nothing can happen unless the club is sold. Some of the players don`t want to play in that division, but they`re being paid 50,000 a week and you can`t sustain that.

It is a horrendous situation and the longer it goes on the worse it will get for Newcastle. If things don`t change in the next three weeks they could have a very bad season.'
