Alan Shearer ‘Newcastle First Eleven Will Be Match For Anyone’

8 years ago

Buoyed by great results against Liverpool, Chelsea and Tottenham, are Newcastle over achieving or is that a level they can maintain.

Newcastle legend Alan Shearer believes that a spine of Krul, Coloccini Cabaye and Remy is potentially as good as anything else around in the Premier League.

Two great results, a month ago everybody kept telling me we’ll find out all about them when they play Liverpool, they play Sunderland, they play Chelsea and they play Spurs.

“Other than Sunderland, and I say other than(!), that was probably the biggest one, but three great results against the big boys.

“I think that is what Newcastle will do this season, they will have some great results and they’ll have some poor results.  You’ll look at them and say how have they gone and got beat…how have they gone there and got a result?

“If you put their first eleven out then they will be a match for anybody because that spine down the middle of Krul, Coloccini when he’s fit, Cabaye and Remy – who has started the season in fantastic form, there is not many better than that you know.”

The two home matches coming up against Norwich and West Brom will give us a better idea of what Newcastle can do this season and hopefully we we won’t be switiching from ‘how have they gone there and got a result‘ to ‘how have they gone and got beat’.
