SOUNESS SACKED!

SOUNESS SACKED!

Ex-Newcastle defender Glenn Roeder and Alan Shearer will take over the team for the coming games. Obviously Shepherd is not in any position to raise the cash to "pay off" a current club manager.

Roeder joined Newcastle in 1983 from Queens Park Rangers, became club skipper, before leaving for Watford in 1989.

Obviously Freddy Shepherd is looking to Shearer as the next Newcastle manager, but the FA claim he and Roeder don't have the paperwork to take over the job full-time. They can only work in the hotseat for 12 weeks.

No David O'Leary on the poll list? He was one of the favourites last time around. Would you welcome him?

If Alan Shearer is given the chance, he will make a worse mess of your once-proud club than Souness ever did. Perhaps Ruud Gullit was right after all - no one player should have so much power.

No one in their right mind would want to employ David O'Leary, he's only capable of managing a part time sham like villa.

too soon for shearer and make no mistake we are in a desperate state to think of someone with no experience such as big alan. we need to appoint a proven man who has done his apprentiship from lower levals up to the top leval,who can rebuild and motivate.please put a 10 million bid in for o-neil

Cpt. Mannering, are you sure you are the Cpt and not Pike? Stupid boy! As for managers, Newcastle and Pompey are fast becoming like Villa, sack a manager every other year to keep the fans happy and keep the flack out of the boardroom. Works every time. With the money spent Souness should have done better, but then isn't half the money spent currently on the treatment table? I'd not fancy your chances of getting Martin O'Neil, not with his personal circumstances. Shepherd needs to pull a rabbit out of the hat though, otherwise the heady days of Keegan will remain a distant memory!
