Vote: Is Alan Shearer the right man to lead Newcastle in the Championship next season?

The Magpies would be bottom if their Messiah was there all season

A chart showing the records of all four Newcastle managers this season

The charming table above displays the records of all four Newcastle bosses this season and reveals where the club would have finished over 38 games based on each manager’s points average during their spell in charge.

It makes grim reading for Alan Shearer, whose record is only better than caretaker Chris Hughton’s because he was in charge for one less game. The statistics also suggest that Newcastle were well on their way to safety before Joe Kinnear had to step aside.

So is Shearer the right man to guide the club through a summer of wheeling and dealing – where Iain Dowie is likely to be influential in deciding who arrives having managed in the division with three clubs – or should someone else be given the chance? Let us know with a vote and comment below:

    Alan Shearer is too sexy for the Championship.

    Nah! not really, rather have a Gus Hiddink or a Martin Jol.
    That being near impossible, would settle for someone like the present Hammers coach Steve Clark.
    However it`s obviously going to be “She-rah”
    thank goodness he had the smarts to hire Carver back.
