Thing about Shearer is that regardless of whether he has what it takes (completely unknown quantity in that regard) at least he appreciates the scale of the problems at the club and seems determined to put that right (should terms etc. be agreed).

john carver, saviour of newcastle...

 

fucking jesus wept. (please note "jackies the lad" this isn't a dig at you)

 

I thought shearer was going to involve rob lee, and bob dowie as well.

 

People in and around the club when SBR was in charge put a lot of the success down to Carver actually.

 

 

And he can't be any fucking worse than Hughton / Calderwood.

Agreed, we also know he wouldn't be here just for as much money as he could pocket before fucking off not giving a shit about the mess he'd left

Alan Shearer's NUFC talks break up with no agreement

 

May 27 2009 By Mark Douglas, ncjMedia

 

TALKS aimed at thrashing out a permanent deal for Alan Shearer to become NUFC manager broke up this afternoon with no agreement in place.

 

Shearer left the training ground at about 4pm after arriving at around 8am.

 

The eight-hour negotiations followed yesterday's marathon discussions, after which owner Mike Ashley apologised to fans.

 

Shearer spent about seven hours in talks at United’s Darsley Park training complex yesterday discussing his and the club’s future.

 

But owner Ashley left in the evening before issuing his apology.

 

The former captain's eight-game contract as interim boss expired on Monday, the day after the club was relegated to the Championship after 16 seasons in the Premier League.

 

It now remains to be seen whether a third day of talks scheduled for tomorrow will bring the news that most Newcastle fans - and Mike Ashley - want to hear

Maybe being a bit too optomistic but this failure to reach an agreement today may have something to do with the takeover talks happening at the same time....

bit of scare mongering by the press there

 

I wouldn't have expected an holistic agreement to be settled until the end of the week at the earliest. There'll be a lot to talk about and a lot of egos to balance.

Right, will keep telling myself that ^^

 

It's all part of the 5 Year plan, It's all part of the 5 Year plan, It's all part of the 5 year plan...

 

I'm not sure that is what Jimbo implied mate!

 

I know, I know, but it seemed to fit in at the time :lol:

Alan Shearer may agree four-year contract with Newcastle at weekend

 

Another day of talks at Newcastle United's training ground concluded without Alan Shearer signing a four-year contract as the club's manager, but there is quiet optimism that a deal will be concluded by the end of the week. Shearer will not sign a contract until his lawyers have pored over the nuances of every piece of small print and there is consequently nothing un­usual in his taking days rather than hours to reach agreement with Mike ­Ashley, Newcastle's owner.

 

Ashley spent six hours yesterday in negotiations with Shearer on Tyneside but the multimillionaire retailer played no part in today's deliberations. Instead Shearer – who arrived at the club's weekday Benton base at 8.30am and did not leave until after 4pm – was locked in discussions with Derek Llambias, Newcastle's managing director, and Iain Dowie, the assistant manager.

 

It is understood much hard bargaining went on and, although a relaxed-looking Shearer smiled and signed autographs as he headed home, a source close to the talks revealed that they may not be concluded too quickly. "Talks are ongoing but there could still be a way to go before an agreement is signed," said the source. "Alan is desperate to help Newcastle and take on the job because of his love of the club."

 

Even so it is understood Shearer wants Ashley to invest a further sum of around £30m in Newcastle, with £15m-£20m of it being invested on buying new players. "The state of the squad is part of the negotiations," said the source. "It desperately needs reshaping and freshening. The Championship is about pace and power and the squad doesn't have a lot of that." The mooted appointments of John Carver and Rob Lee to Newcastle's coaching staff were also thought to be on the agenda.

 

Meanwhile Keith Harris, the investment banker hired to try to sell Newcastle last autumn, before the club was taken off the market in late December, dismissed reports that he had spent Tuesday on Tyneside talking to a consortium keen to take over from Ashley. "Categorically untrue," said Harris, explaining he had been in Newcastle on non-football business. The chairman of Seymour Pierce makes regular trips to the region in relation to an involvement he has with Halfords.
