This desperate move may be the key to avoid relegation.

Newcastle United are currently third from the bottom with two points behind Blackburn, the first team above the line. Shearer appointment was also forced by the health problems of the former manager Joe Kinnear who suffered a hearth surgery.

Shearer, who has no past experience, was preferred by the stuff and supporters to more experienced managers. The former England star played under black and white between 1996 and 2006 in which managed to score 148 goals.

The 38 year old manager is like a god at St James’ Park and that could be decisive for the relegation battle. Every time when a new manager comes, the atmosphere between the player is changing, they try to do their best to impress the new coach. With Shearer will be even better because he is a very respected and influential man.

The next game will be a difficult one as they will have to face Chelsea in Premier League.
