Alan Shearer is considered a Newcastle United legend and has his own statue outside St James’s Park. Alan Shearer says the £305m takeover of Newcastle United, backed by Saudi Arabia, is a “special day” for the club’s long-suffering fans. In the latest football news, it has been reported that Newcastion United’s takeover is confirmed. In addition to finishing fifth in 2011–12, the Magpies struggled to challenge near the top of the Premier League in 2004.
NS Pickup ends Mike Ashley’s 14-year spell as Newcastle owner, during which he was demoted twice. “What we did was it lasted and lived for 14 years,” Shearer said. “We had no real ambitions, we survived, cup competitions didn’t exist and this city and this football club and our fans deserve better.”
“The fans are loyal, they love their football club and their life is Newcastle United. It all depends on whether Newcastle wins on Saturday or not. I work hard all week to spend money on the club, so I understand why there is so much joy in the city today and I feel exactly the same way.”
“Our fans also need to know that it matters, because they are not 14 years old, so today is a special day for them.” Shearer, who scored 206 goals in 10 years at St James’s Park as a player, helped the club achieve more in the top four. He qualified for the Champions League three times between 1996 and 2003.
However, these teams have had more than a splash of quality stars, unlike in recent years, when a perceived lack of investment in gaming staff has resulted in mediocre performances and fan protests.
Shearer told BBC Radio 5 Live: “The dream is that we want some hope. Fans want their football club to try to be the best and they really understand their enthusiasm for it. Newcastle fans haven’t counted for 14 years. Their money has not been invested and they have not been consulted. It’s not nice to have a football club that has so much passionate support, but doesn’t have that level of mentorship. Now we have owners who will invest and I think it is very important for fans to see.”
