Alan Shearer worried for Newcastle United's season

Alan Shearer admits that he is worried for Newcastle United's season after a disappointing start to the campaign.

Newcastle United legend Alan Shearer has admitted that he "doesn't hold too much hope" for the Magpies' season this term.

Newcastle boss Alan Pardew has come in for fierce criticism from the club's supporters this term, with repeated calls for the manager to be sacked by owner Mike Ashley.

The Magpies are currently 18th in the Premier League and are yet to win this season.

Shearer told The Chronicle: "It has been poor since January this year. The quicker we can get out of it the better. I don't hold too much hope for us this season. I think it could be a long hard season for us.

"You can make whatever excuses you want - injuries, too many games or confidence. Put all of that to one side, the simple fact of the matter is we just have not been good enough.

"It's simple. That's the harsh reality of it. Things have to improve and they have to improve pretty quickly or we could find ourselves in a hole."
