UF Quick Throw: Alan Shearer Handed the Reins

Despite having no previous managerial experience, Alan Shearer has been named Newcastle's fourth manager of the season. This is going to end well.

You watch, he'll do wonders. He has black and white blood that one. They were grooming him anyway.

chelsea turned over at st james park on the weekend?

Given the situation, they had nothing to lose. And I suspect he'll have a relatively huge effect over the last 8, which means Rovers are no longer a sure bet to survive - I still like our chances, but I suspect the barcodes aren't one of the three going down...
And, yep, I'm seriously reconsidering how I'll pick the game with Spartak...

it's a win-win for shearer

if they go down - he can just say he didn't have enough time, resources, they were already in the relegation zone, etc. no one really expected them to survive

if they stay up - he is god. (again)

Hmmm, How about a spirited 2-2 draw?

Shit, BD, if we're wishing for a spirited draw let's make it 4-4, shall we?

New Manager Effect keeps getting challenged with more and more ridiculous situations... Clearly, we can mark Nuke for a win or two on the trot
