We're In Trouble...

After a 2-0 loss to Chelsea yesterday in Alan Shearer's managerial debut, Newcastle stand 18th in the table, with Sunderland (17th place team) 3 points ahead of us. If the lads don't "step it up", then we'll surely be relegated. I just don't understand. We have a quick, pacey striker in Obafemi Martins, and we have a deadly finisher in Michael Owen. We have a decent keeper in Steve Harper, and our back line is lead by Fabricio Coloccini, who I admit is a fantastic player. Despite his rare bad moments, Coloccini has done a good job of keeping our back line straight. Jonas Gutierrez has also done a good job, despite the fact that he was ALL over the field looking clueless in yesterday's game. Alan Shearer insists that Newcastle will stay up, but he only has 7 games left to keep the Toon Army happy. I hate to say this, but I think it's just a little too late for Newcastle. I'm sure Shearer will lead Newcastle to a couple wins under his reign, but we've let too many games slip out of our grasp.
