Alen Shearer sends six-word response on Newcastle’s Polarizing verdict!

Newcastle United are off to Australia at the end of the season, and now Alan Shearer has given his thoughts on the trip.

 

The 2023/24 Premier League season will come to an end on May 19th, and that should be the end of the Newcastle United players’ commitments. However, they will instead be travelling more than 10,000 miles to play two more games.

It has been announced that the Magpies will be playing two post-season friendlies in Melbourne. The first is against Premier League rivals Tottenham Hotspur, and the second is against the A-League All Stars. It could give Garang Kuol the chance to make his Toon debut, given the fact that he is an Australia international.

 

It is a decision that has been made for commercial reasons, as the club look to increase their revenue amid the pressures of profit and sustainability.

 

But from a player perspective, the trip must be far less appealing. That is the view of Conor Coady, who does not think the Newcastle players will be too pleased about the trip down under.

And that is a view shared by Toon legend Alan Shearer.

Alan Shearer reacts to Newcastle United’s planned trip to Australia

 

In response to an article on X from the Athletic about Newcastle and Tottenham heading to Australia, Alan Shearer provided his reaction to the post-season trip.

Newcastle United’s trip to Australia will divide opinions

 

It is a decision that probably has not gone down too well with the Newcastle United players, especially given how gruelling this season has been. The Magpies have had to play a lot of games, and the players have been forced to go above and beyond due to the amount of injuries.

 

A lot of people will not have too much sympathy. After all, they are paid very handsomely for what they do. Now they have to go all the way to Australia? Diddums…

 

But player welfare has to be taken into consideration, and the trip comes at a time when many of them will be bracing themselves to compete in major tournaments such as Euro 2024 and the Copa America.

Then there is the climate issue too, with both Newcastle and Tottenham criticised for their decision to fly to the other side of the world for just a few days.

Newcastle need to grow their brand

 

The club will see the trip as an opportunity to grow their brand. Newcastle have supporters all over the world, while they also want to tap into more markets and hopefully increase their revenue.

 

That will always be the aim of the game for Newcastle United officials, especially given how stretched they are due to the Premier League’s profit and sustainability rules. They will see trips like this as massively beneficial, as they look to close the financial gap and give Eddie Howe all the resources he needs to make Newcastle United as competitive as possible.
