Which Newcastle Manager Is In Premier League Top 20 Worst?

10 years ago

So who do you think it is? Which Newcastle manager makes it into the twenty worst Premier League managers?

Well statistically I’m afraid it is United legend, Alan Shearer.

Purely on number of points per match, Shearer creeps into the ‘top’ twenty as seen here, the criteria being that they had all had to have managed for at least six matches.

Obviously he came in at a shocking time, when as we well know we had a potentially very good team on paper but possibly the highest paid and least motivated group of players ever assembled, with some exceptions.

Maybe Shearer’s job was impossible from day one but it is there in the record books until he (if ever) has a proper go at management.

Nice to see though that yet again the mackems have trumped us by dominating the top ten with three of their illustrious past managers.

Thank you Mick McCarthy, Kevin Ball and Howard Wilkinson – your great work will never be forgotten around these parts!
