Newcastle United fans once again have a big talking point regarding the future of their club, with new reports suggesting a Singaporean led takeover my now be on the cards.
According to the Sun, a new name has emerged with a potential bid on the table to Mike Ashley. It comes just a few weeks after the club saw a Saudi-led takeover attempt collapse, further plunging Steve Bruce’s transfer plans into confusion.
And incredibly, it appears this new consortium is planning to give Alan Shearer the manager’s job – or any role he wants within the club – if they do take over, with Bruce seemingly out of the door.
The report claims Shearer has already been enlisted to help with the prospective transaction, alongside another former striker in Michael Chopra.
Of course, this has got Newcastle fans on Twitter talking and there has been plenty of reaction to the news. In particular, the news of Shearer potentially being given the job has caused quite the stir.
Here, then, is a look at how some Newcastle fans reacted to potentially having Alan Shearer as manager once again.
As much as I think Shearer wasnt given enough time. This is beyond ridiculous.

So the man that got us relegated is going to be our next manager. Am I seeing this correctly ?

Shearer will never go into management ever again, he’s said that on countless occasions. He might accept another position within club though.
