Shearer Linked With Owls Post

Shearer Linked With Owls Post

Newcastle United and England legend Alan Shearer has been linked with the vacant manager's position at Wednesday in today's tabloids.

Shearer, who has little experience in management having taken charge of hometown team Newcastle at the end of last season, has been linked with the position in The Sun today.

And Sheffield United man Gary Speed has also been linked with a move across the city as Shearer's assistant.

Shearer failed to save Newcastle from the drop last season, but he's been linked with a move to the Owls before, when Geoff Sheard was showing interest in investing in the club.

It would be a gamble for Owls chairman Lee Strafford to appoint the former England international, but it could easily bolster the attendances at S6, and prove a big draw for potential investors.

What have we got to lose? We're going down at this rate anyway, and with his reputation as a player as the article states, maybe it'd be some much needed drawing power for investors? Right now i dont think we're the most appealing club to invest in. I say get him in if he's interested, for the sole purpose of utilising his name, and if he turns out half decent in the process then everyone's happy.

Great, get him in asap, might be able to work with our strikers and show them how to score! If he can get 25 goals a season out of Clarke then he should be knighted, mind you in league 1 Clarke might score 25 goals a season, can't wait for next season already!!

Weren't these two supposed to be the management team at the lane a few weeks back, pray this doesn't happen. Shearer made no difference at newcastle (albeit only a few games) we need someone experienced who will show us how to battle for the points we have got to get

The last thing we need is some old fart like Steve Coppell or George Burley. i think we should take a chance on a Shearer or a Ferguson.
