From a Gooner I say good luck to The Toon with the re-appointment of KK. The game needs characters like him to bring a bit of colour and a kind of swashbuckling do or die attitude.
Even if you do stay mid table, at least it will be entertaining football on Tyneside instead of the drivel that has been served up over the last few years to what is probably the most hard core fan base in the Prem.
Good luck to KK, at least he wears his heart on his sleeve and has some passion. I also hope he can give the players the kick up the backside that they need as well.. its been a long time coming.
I do though, have serious doubts about a role for Shearer. Much as I respect him for his achievements on the pitch, I'm not sure what he could add to the party on a weekly basis.
KK must be given time as well, he won't be able to turn around your comical defence in a few months only, my humble opinion is that you have issues all over the pitch that need sorting out and that will take a bit of time.
One definite positive is that KK will encourage a freedom of movement and play that has not been seen at SJP in a long time... that can only be a good thing, so long as you don't ship too many goals on the break!
