Newcastle United fan Lynsey Hipgrave worried about which direction her club will head in

2 years ago

Alan Shearer is of course the number one black and white advocate in the media.

When you are the best striker ever seen in the Premier League and now the number one pundit on Match of The Day, as well as any number of other media roles/opportunities, Big Al always has our backs.

However, there are a growing number of others now in the media, who provide a supporting role to main man Alan Shearer.

High up on that list is Lynsey Hipgrave, who is a rising star of TV presenting.

She often wears her black and white heart on her sleeve.

Speaking on BT Sport, Lynsey Hipgrave has voiced the hopes and fears that ever other Newcastle fan is feeling at the minute…

“The club has so much potential, it has an immense fanbase and a world class manager.

“I just hope they (Mike Ashley and his minions) are not stupid enough to lose him (Rafa Benitez)…

“It (hopes for Newcastle to now make progress) all depends on whether Rafa signs a new contract and is given a reasonable amount of money to improve this squad.

“We need more quality, more depth…he needs to be backed and left to get on with the brilliant job he’s been doing.

“It is almost impossible to compete with the ‘big six’ now.

“But it would be nice to keep out of the relegation picture and at least be competing for a Europa League place.”
