Shearer ‘Newcastle Need Another Striker To Make Sure They Don’t Get Into Trouble’

8 years ago

As Newcastle United’s greatest ever goalscorer, Alan Shearer knows a thing or two about what is needed up front.

Looking at Newcastle’s current predicament it doesn’t need the Geordie legend to point out to us what is needed but he has added his voice to the rest of the fans praying for another striker to avoid possible disaster.

This is what Alan Shearer has had to say on the subject of transfers, or rather the lack of them;

“They have signed Loic Remy but I would think they need another striker to make sure they don’t get into trouble like they did last year.

No manager is ever satisfied and they would all like an extra four or five signings but I believe one more forward could make the difference.”

Last season, especially after Demba Ba left, has made clear that there aren’t enough goals in Newcastle’s squad.

Pre-season has simply confirmed that major problem.

Unfortunately, when Alan talks about managers wanting four or five signings then that is precisely what nearly every club has done who will are likely to be in and around Newcastle.
