dint we all think andy carroll was the next shearer?? anyway they have demba ba so he is the current 'new shearer' really.... obviously. and i think ba is alot better a player than carroll ever was. also, they have cisse, so ba and cisse combined is more than what carroll offered. is ba or cisse as good as shearer?? not yet, but i sense something very special with ba. and this team is far better than the team that shearer finished his career with but nowhere near as good as the team that he first started off with in 96, so as far as "a different tye of team" goes, they are possibly just abit better than average as far as a top premier league team goes. this newcastle team is a good team again but i can't see them ever doing better than what they acheived last season for a very long time, it's a shame they dint qualify for the champions league as it was probably the best shot they are going to get in all fair again if they ness. i can see them being a top 6 team again though and that's only because liverpool are getting worse and worse by the minute.
