SBR calls for Shearer appointment

SBR calls for Shearer appointment

Ahead of tomorrow's charity match for the Sir Bobby Robson Foundation, it's patron and our former manager has called for Alan Shearer to be reinstated as manager immediately. In the wake of the humiliating 6-1 drubbing in the East End by Leyton Orient, Sir Bobby said:

'It`s great that Alan can play but I`d have preferred to have him involved at Newcastle United because I believe we need a strong manager for the next five years.

But Newcastle`s loss at the moment is my gain and I`m thrilled he is with the England Legends team. I tried to sign Alan for Barcelona, but he came back home to Newcastle instead.

Thankfully, I was able to be his manager later on at St James` Park and he was a model professional, as well as a great captain and centre-forward. Next, I expect him to be a great manager, and I hope it`s with our club, Newcastle.'
