Alan Shearer has broken his silence following the devastating news yesterday that our Saudi-backed takeover is off.
Our record goal scorer was on BBC Radio 5 Live to speak about the heartache that our fanbase is feeling right now, and how he “prays” that new owners come in soon.
Here is what Shearer said today:
“Big news but not good news if you are a Newcastle fan.
“There’s a lot of anger, understandably so, and a massive amount of disappointment.
“They want their club to compete, they want their club to move forward, that’s why yesterday was such a disappointing day.
“We can only hope and pray that new owners come in at some stage and take the club back to where it belongs because that’s what the fans of Newcastle deserve.”
Every Toon fan echoes these words by Shearer and more, as the entire forecast of our club has changed dramatically over the past 24 hours.
We still cling onto the small possibility that Staveley will come and try to save us for a third time, and a statement from Lee Charnley today certainly didn’t rule out the Saudi deal altogether.
We live in hope.
