Eddie Howe’s Future Secure – Alan Shearer Supports Newcastle Boss After Cup Disappointment

Despite Newcastle’s FA Cup exit and their dwindling chances in other competitions, Alan Shearer stands firmly behind manager Eddie Howe, suggesting that Howe still has significant credit from his past achievements.

Disappointing Defeat

Newcastle’s hopes of silverware were dashed by Manchester City, with two deflected goals from Bernardo Silva sealing their fate in the FA Cup.

The loss adds to the disappointment of a season where Newcastle finds themselves out of all cup competitions and struggling in the league.

Mitigating Circumstances

Shearer acknowledges the challenges Newcastle has faced this season, particularly highlighting injuries to key players like Nick Pope and Joelinton as significant setbacks.

Despite these obstacles, Shearer maintains faith in Howe’s abilities and believes he will continue as Newcastle’s manager next season.

Need for Reinforcements

Looking ahead, Shearer emphasizes the importance of backing Howe in the upcoming transfer window, suggesting that fresh players are needed to rejuvenate the squad.

He points out that several players have failed to replicate their form from the previous season, indicating a need for new signings.

Echoes of Support

Shay Given, Shearer’s former teammate, echoes his sentiments, suggesting that last season’s achievements may have raised expectations unrealistically high.

Despite the drop in performance this season, Given believes Howe is still the right man to lead Newcastle forward, citing his popularity among fans and the team’s faith in him.

Remaining Challenges

With Newcastle currently sitting in 10th place in the Premier League, the road ahead remains challenging, with significant ground to make up to secure European qualification.

However, both Shearer and Given express confidence in Howe’s ability to guide the club through these challenges and continue their progression.
