He obviously won’t do it as a player now that Chelsea have ended his dreams, but Alan Shearer will win the FA Cup for Newcastle as a manager. Glenn Roeder says so!

Roeder: ‘Alan set his heart on getting into the last four but conceding an early goal to the Premiership champions disappointed us. For Alan to lose the game 1-0 and not even have an opportunity to take them back for a replay at St James’ Park has to be a disappointment.

‘But he won’t want any sympathy. Alan is not a sympathy man, just look at his career and look at his life. He will shake himself down, pick himself up and work hard towards his retirement before he comes back into the game in football management.

‘I don’t know whether that will be in one year’s time or six or seven years but Alan can still win the FA Cup one day. Why not? When he comes back into management, I am sure it will only be at this club and this club has the capability to win it even though the last time they did it I was not born.’
