Alan Shearer has described the Newcastle players as an embarrassment and doubts if the next four games will yield a single point.

The United legend thinks that relegation is now a real possibility, the weekend’s results meaning Newcastle are only five points above the drop but three of the teams below have a game in hand.

Writing in his column in The Sun, Shearer says that John Carver has maybe been getting too much stick and it is the players who should take responsibility.

“Have no doubts about it, Newcastle are now in real danger of going down.

“I didn’t think so until Saturday but after that performance…I can’t actually say with any certainty that we will get another point this season.”


“John Carver himself has been getting some stick but he loves the club and I know he is hurting.

“Why don’t the Newcastle players start taking some responsibility? Because right now they are an embarrassment.”

These latest comments follow the equally damning ones he said on Match of The Day on Saturday night which you can read HERE.
