Shearer's Newcastle Sinking In Perfect Storm
So another Newscastle Messiah is already up to his chin in toxic water after discovering that he can't walk on the Tyne after all. What a shame, it couldn't happen to a nicer, more self effacing guy than Alan Shearer! At least King Kev had a certain twatish charm about him. It was always obvious that the guy was a berk but at least he seemed to understand that himself. Shearer is a different kettle of fish entirely - he seems an arrogant son of a Bull Shark who looks after Number 9 at every turn.
Today summed it all up perfectly. Going to Liverpool, with zero prospect of winning anyway, King Al decided to leave Owen out of the team. Never mind sentimentality, Shearer was intent on showing that he was the big hard man who could make the big hard decisions. It's not aboot being nice, it's aboot being right. I haven't heard or read any interviews but I bet that's the jist of it. That and the usual, Michael is a professional and he understands and respects my decisions. Bollocks! I'll tell you what, that decision may just have sealed Newscastle's fate, not because of what happened at Anfield today but because Owen will not now care what happens to the Barcodes. He is off in the summer now, no question, and if Newscastle are to stay up, they need Owen scoring.
Meanwhile, Barton shoved another Big Alan decision squarely up his rectum when he got his marching orders. I well remember Shearer laying into Barton on MOTD, describing the guy as an insult to the game, so what is he doing picking the thug? Talk about hypocrisy! Well Barton duely delivered Shearer his just deserts and will now, presumably, be suspended from at least one of those "must win" home games! Brilliant!
Newscastle may yet stay up but only because Hull are so hopeless. My fingers are crossed, however, that a trawler out of the fishing port will land a major catch in its nets at the end of the season - dragging a washed out Shearer and and a washed up Dowie out of the North Sea after the Perfect Newscastle Storm!
And to think, West Ham were supposed to be the club in crisis!
