Shearer : New Newcastle manager

It is reported that Newcastle United are set to unveil their longest serving captain and lover, Alan Shearer as their new manager.

The former English striker is expected to take charge for the remaining 8 games with the Magpies.There hasn't been an official word from St.James' Park on their website but it is expected to be made today.

The decision comes in the wake of Newcastle's Joe Kinnear heart surgery as he is recuperating and Newcastle's board don't want to take chances with his health.

Shearer is the fourth manager this season for Mike Ashley owned club.

UPDATE : Shearer's role as the new manager has been confirmed by Newcastle United.The club will hold a news conference tomorrow to formally unveil the new manager.

This also coincides with the sacking of Dennis Wise,executive director with the board.His role was to look on the transfers and scouting aspect of the game.However,this didn't go down well with the then boss Kevin Keagan who handed over his resignation.

Shearer had then also disapproved of the clubs structure.Wise's exit was confirmed less than an hour before Shearer's managerial status with the club was confirmed.

Ian Dowie : Shearer's assistant

Alan Shearer's position isn't confirmed but it seems he already looks to have his coaching staff prepared.Ian Dowie is his chosen assistant as has been reported.

Ian Dowie unlike Shearer has managerial experience with Oldham,Crystal Palace,Charlton Athletic,Coventry City and Queens Park Rangers.

Ian Dowie and Shearer had played together at Southhampton.

Would this get the Tyneside out of the bottom three and his love affair be able to save them from sinking into Championship? What do you think?
