Newcastle United website/fanzine www.TalkOfTheTyne.net has given Graeme Souness a reality check after he said the fans won't call for his head ever again.
Toon skipper Alan Shearer has at last convinced many he has what it takes to take over at Newcastle. It goes against the grain to throw a novice into management in the top flight these days, and that was always the worry when Fat Fred spoke of 'the next manager will be a Geordie'. But it has been Shearer ... NOT Souness ... that has turned the club around.
Don't forget it was Shearer that had talks with Michael Owen and convinced him to join the club, AFTER Souness had failed to cut the mustard with the Real Madrid player. It was Shearer who spoke to Nobby Solano.
Souness went missing after the Wigan disaster, failed to talk to the press, and Shearer took over and held a meeting with the players behind closed doors and told them to start playing like men ... not faggots. And, as if you didn't know already, it was Shearer who took the game to Arsenal on Saturday and knocked seven bells out of him.
The GOALden Boy also says he is sick of hearing injury problems being used as an excuse for the troubles at St James' Park. Shearer: 'We have still got a few first-team players out, but we can't keep talking about that. People are fed up of us talking about the injuries that we've got. The injury argument is not going to work anymore.'
We should be celebrating the win over the Gunners, as I'm sure we all are, but Alan Shearer has won me (and others) over with this perfect attitude this last week. Nothing Souness has done in the last 15 months has convinced me he is a good manager. Everything Shearer has done in the last week has convinced me he WILL be the man to lead us to glory!
