Bloody typical eh?
Newcastle looking like they haven’t got a cat in hell’s chance of staying up this season, I finally feel optimistic about us getting a fairly comfortable result and they go and put Shearer in charge!
Of course, I realise miracles don’t usually happen overnight but we all know how things can go in the honeymoon period and that’s without having their Messiah running the show. And whilst I know coaching badges and an iconic status by no means qualify any ex-player to manage a club, nevermind rescue them from Championship football, it’d be just our bloody luck for him to have a dream start at our expense. Would it be worth it though just to have a giggle at them fooling themselves into believing they have yet another saviour at the helm? Almost.
And as for the Geordies themselves, they really must think all their birthdays have come at once because not only have they finally got their idol managing them (until the end of the season at least), they’ve even got rid of Dennis Wise into the bargain.
