Never dull, is it?
Forty years of near constant disappointment teaches you to live in hope not expectation. As a manager Shearer might well turn out to be more Bobby Charlton than Brian Clough, but things can't get any worse than the depressing downwards drift of Hughton, Calderwood and Wise. If nothing else, today's the first time I've felt positively about the club since Keegan left. A new boss always gets a reaction. It might just be enough to keep us up.
After that, we'll see.
