Bob Cass: "What are they going to do if they sack Allardyce? He wants some money (to strengthen the squad), if there's a new fellow that's going to come in will he get some money? It's the same situation that Benitez is in at Liverpool.

"The owner (Mike Ashley) understands the situation and is prepared to give him the chance."
"I know Alan Shearer well and I think he's got the qualities, and the sort of attitude and outlook, to make a very good manager.

"I think he will be a successful manager but I don't think that Newcastle should be thinking about him right now.

"If he is prepared to wait and see if Allardyce fails then so be it, but if I was Alan Shearer I'd be looking to get a job in management elsewhere.

"I don't think he should come out and say he's not interested in the job because deep down I think he is interested in the job."
