Allardyce Says Shearer Is A 'Short Term Fix'!
"Alan will obviously be hoping his appointment does spur the players on to do better.
"As a short-term fix, he has almost been brought in as a troubleshooter.
"It will be easier for him because of his status. The support from all at Newcastle will be 1,000% given their admiration for him.
"That is what a club like that, certainly the fans, will give him, and if he does get a performance out of the players, then it will have worked."
