It seems that the press disagree to what Alan Shearer has saying about Newcastle United is too good to go down and accused him of tempting the fate, what fate???

Times online has giving example from as long as fifteen years ago while Nottingham Forest were also been said as a team which is too good to go down. The fact that Brian Clough’s final season is ending in relegation for Forest doesn’t have any relation in whatsoever with Newcastle United now.

They said Newcastle can be described as having a freefall, without a single league win since mid-December, collecting only three points from a possible 30 and only above Reading in the form table. My question is: So What?!

“Everything boils down to results and, at this moment in time, Newcastle aren’t getting them,” Shearer said. “But I don’t think they’ll have any chance of going down. If you go through the squad they should not be in the position they’re in.”

Shearer admits the United team confidence is at a low ebb but he still feel Newcastle is a much better team than those around us at the bottom. We still have games against any teams who are in lower position and what the hell on earth we can not have something out from them.

This Saturday we will have home match to Blackburn Rovers and for those who still believe in the opportunity, that game is the one that we should have win about.

Shearer said: “It’s very winnable and things will change once they get that first win. Confidence is a huge thing in football and it can make you a much better player and give you an extra 30 or 40 per cent, which is what Newcastle need.”

Keegan targeted four wins from the remaining 11 games, and no matter what happened to this team, even we have to go down I don’t give a sh*t to what the papers prediction or considered about how we need 19 games previously to get four wins.
