Legendary Newcastle striker Alan Shearer will manage the club until the end of the season.
Presuming that the BBC isn't playing an April Fool's joke, that is.
The local hero, who has an almost God-like status on Tyneside, is the fourth manager this season (!!!) and has just eight games to keep us in the Premier League... with the first one being against Chelsea.
I'm excited and terrified in equal measures.
Good luck Alan - you'll need it. But don't worry, we'll still love you whatever happens!
p.s. I know no-one cares, but if I didn't "tell" someone, I'd explode! I'd usually call my Dad, but he's on holiday in Malta.
Getting the message across…
