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

Shearer speaks

In an interview with the Ronnie Gill our former number nine has had a nice natter with Alan Oliver, talking amongst other things about England`s Michael Owen and Glenn Roeder. He revealed that he still hasn`t texted any of the coaching staff (Craig Bellamy take note) since leaving which seems strange. Anyway here`s what the legend had to say:

"United have had a very good Easter with four points out of six in the Premiership, and hopefully they can finish the season on a high. It has been so frustrating for Glenn Roeder this season because of all the injuries United have had. And it is more frustrating for him that just when the season is about to come to an end, it looks like they are going to get Michael Owen and Shola Ameobi back from their injuries. And if they do come back it will help Newcastle pick up a few more points between now and the end of the season.

Obviously Newcastle have missed Michael while he has been injured, but then every team in the world would have missed him. Newcastle have missed his quality as a goalscorer and also his ability as a goal poacher. He is the type of striker who turns draws into three points and who can help you nick a draw in matches when you look as though you are going to get beaten. I am the first to wish United luck every week. Glenn Roeder is a friend of mine and I want him to do well at St James' Park and, fingers crossed, he will keep things going.'

Number 9 Legend - doesn't make for a great manager though.

have to agree, if Owen had been fit, we'd have picked up far more wins.

would rather he didn't manage us, in many ways because I would hate to see his status tarnished and I can't think of many top managers who were players, not TOP ones.
