Shearer: Toon won't going down

Newcastle legend Alan Shearer believes his beloved club are too good to go down.

And once safe, the Magpies' all time leading scorer insists they must learn from the mistakes of this season and make sure a season like this is never repeated.

He told The Sun: "I look at those clubs staring at the drop and I can’t see goals in a lot of them.

"But I can see goals in this Newcastle team and that’s why I believe it is too good to go down — and won’t.

"Then we will need to really start again because, to be quite frank, people have been laughing at this club this season.

"There have been a load of mistakes both on and off the pitch and everyone has to learn from them.

"The failure to communicate properly with the fans has been one of the biggest. It’s been a good move that Mike Ashley and the chairman have actually come out and said something recently."

Looking at the Premier League table right now, the Magpies stand just four points above the drop zone with one of the toughest fixtures of all those fearing relegation.

They have four of the top six at home and the other two in Liverpool and Aston Villa away.

Shearer added: "Yes — but we also have Portsmouth, Middlesbrough and Fulham at home and Stoke, Hull, Bolton and Tottenham away. It’s those games that will decide it for me.

"And I say again, there are already goals there and we have Mark Viduka and Obafemi Martins back from injury now.

"And Michael Owen could be only a couple of weeks away and that will be the difference.

"We have always conceded goals, Newcastle have done for years.

"But we can score them and that’s more than can be said for a lot of teams down there.

"Anyway, who knows what we might do against the others? After all, we did get a point at Old Trafford at the start of the season.

"The club are going to need at least three wins and three draws.

"We will stay up, I’m sure of it. But once we do, plans must be made to ensure a season like this is never repeated."
