Post by: Optimistic Nut on Tuesday 29 December 2009, 04:35:43 PM
Bellamy was the better partner imo because Shearer needed his pace to do his running, and Bellamy needed Shearer to feed off. Ferdinand was more a case of two top class centre-forwards scoring chances created for them by the likes of Gillespie, Ginola, Beardsley, etc. etc rather than a partnership and how they linked up.

It's bizarre how much barrel-scraping comes immediately after Ferdinand and Bellamy. Maybe if we'd had three quality strikers in the Bobby era, we might even have had a better shot at the title (or 4th place in 03/04's case). I mean, you are looking at the likes of Shola and Kevin Gallacher (after the obvious two) as the next 'best partners'.

Special mention for Duncan too. Didn't last very long, but I enjoyed the "Twin Towers" a lot.

For me it has to be Les. I think it's very harsh to say they were just two quality strikers rather than partners, they were very willing to always help each other out right from the start.

Bellamy was exactly what Shearer needed at that time (which underlines Sir Bobby's genius really) but overall has to be Ferdinand.
Title: Re: Alan Shearer
Post by: Inferior Acuña on Tuesday 29 December 2009, 09:35:34 PM
Ferdinand, then Bellamy.  As has been said, Les was probably less of a partnership than just two goal machines, but still.  Bellamy probably revitalised Shearer.

He was pretty poor at Coventry, a lot were surprised we signed him after that spell.  He was appalling at St James.

Yes, both on and off the pitch.

The failure of the club to deal with Shearer's retirement professionally was an even bigger disaster than the appointment of Souness - though in a sense, the two go together. Souness was the only manager who was prepared to put up with the situation.

I have to admit he got too big for his boots towards the end. For example, who's to say that Gullit wouldn't have produced a decent team if he hadn't been punted out after dropping Al?

Total legend though obviously... that's a minor criticism (and more of the club than of Shearer himself).

Don't know what people think we would have "achieved" had he been forced out earlier. What has happened since he's retired and the strikers we brought in are a partial answer.

He scored 28 goals in his third to last season by the way.

I always think Shearer could have scored maybe another 40-50 goals if he didn't get those two long term crippling injuries. Come to think of it they also hampered the rest of his career which may have knocked off a couple of goals a season after. Lets see how Rooney would come back from it ;)

Happy birthday to a true legend. Got so many amazing memories watching him play for us and England. A few personal highlights have to be the 5-0 against Manure, hat-trick against Leicester in the 4-3 win, his goals in the Sheffield United and Spurs FA Cup semi-finals, his double against Inter Milan at the San Siro, hat-trick against Bayer Leverkusen, his wonder strikes against Aston Villa, Everton and Chelsea all at SJP, winding that c*** Roy Keane up in our 4-3 win against Manure, his penalty against the mackems in his last ever match for us, that amazing night against Celtic for his testimonial which I will never forget, and of course the record breaking goal against Portsmouth. Thats of the top of my head.

The things I miss most of all other than looking at him when I was wondering where a goal was gonna come from when we were struggling, is THAT celebration and a simple thing like when he came back to defend a corner and the ball was like a magnet to his head. I still stand by what I've always said, I don't care who scores for Newcastle, but every time Shearer scored it felt that little bit better. A bit more satisfying.

We certainly carried him for the final 2 seasons, especially the last, but considering he'd been carrying us for 6 before it we owed him.

Like said those two injuries not only made him miss nearly two full seasons at the time, but certainly cut his career short and made him drastically change his game.
Title: Re: Alan Shearer
Post by: David28 on Friday 13 August 2010, 11:05:51 AM
I don't think he hold the club back in his last two seasons. He was still top scorer in his last, wasn't he?

I think in the 2005/2006 season, together with Owen he would have been far better because the whole team did well whenever Owen was playing (almost ever). That match against West Ham where Owen scored a hattrick for example, or Arsenal at home with Nobby's winning goal.

Though, I agree that he maybe had a bit too much influence in his last years. But that's the way it is, he deserved it, somehow. He deserved to stay on untill he would finally break that record of Milburn.

My favorite player ever- ultimately what got me hooked on NUFC. I've never actually had a footballing hero since Shearer retired, and I don't think I ever will. So many great memories.

I'll never believe he held us back. He kept banging them in and ultimately became our record goalscorer, we've went down the pot since then.

Happy Birthday Alan, thanks for everything  :smitten:

Was watching his testimonial the other day, and that wonderfully cringeworthy moment when the referee gave the penalty and Shearer suddenly whipped his training top off and came on :lol:

"Referee says penalty! And guess what, do you know who's going to take it? Well it may be orchestrated but the situation demands it.....and Alan Shearer, who has rescued Newcastle so many times before has the chance to do so again, for the very last time...SAME OLD SHEARER, ALWAYS SCORING..."

A local lad who knew what it meant to play for this great football club, when we could have played for any other team in the world.

The injury at Goodison meant we didn't get enough of him at his absolute best (last 2 seasons at Blackburn when only Ronaldo was a better striker in the world around those years up to 97) but still the greatest English striker ever produced and watching him play for us for 10 years was an absolute privilege, and to still manage 206 goals was phenomenal.  I don't care about the he should have retired a year or 2 earlier argument, seeing him get the record and watch him score his last goal for us while we thrashed those lot on their own manor was worth it.  A perfect ending for an absolute legend.

Don't buy in to this he stopped some amazing Kluivert/Bellamy partnership either.  Other than Palace, can anyone name a couple of games where they looked the business together?  Still scored more than Bellamy ever did for us in a season when he was 35.

Even tried to step up and take charge to stop us from going down, knowing the risk of failure, that's how much he cares about this club.

Growing up an absolute hero to me and many others.  Happy birthday Al.

Shearer joining Newcastle in 1996 was probably the high point in the club's years in the Premier League.

He could have joined Man U when they were winning everything and would undoubtedly have picked up a barrow load of medals with them had he done so.
The fact that he chose us was a tribute to KK's selling power, an illustration of how highly we were regarded at the time and proved that Shearer WAS a true fan of the club. Regardless of what he says, he must slightly regret not having won more silverware in a career that well deserved to and because of his injuries after joining us - especially the one at Goodison in that 1997 pre-season game - he never really showed us his best after that season out because it took half a yard off his pace. It is a credit to him that he altered his game to cope with it and still became a club legend by virtue of his goals for us.

Unless we are taken over by a VERY rich person/group, we will never ever see a similar world-beating transfer at St James' Park...Shearer is as much a part of the club's fame as were Jackie Milburn and Supermac although Milburn brought the club the FA Cup and Macdonald was arguably the most exciting CF I have seen in a B&W shirt because of his pace.

We were lucky to have him - Happy Birthday, Sir Alan..!

Newcastle United legend Alan Shearer not looking for a manager's job
12 Dec 2013 13:11

Legendary Newcastle United striker Alan Shearer says he is not looking to get back into football management



Alan Shearer says he is not looking to get back into football management.

The legendary Newcastle United striker and the club’s all-time top scorer took charge in the 2008/09 season with eight games to go with Joe Kinnear’s United already deep in trouble.

Shearer was keen to take the job after the Magpies were relegated into the Championship but Mike Ashley did not offer him the chance to do so despite holding talks.

Shearer told BBC Newcastle: “I love my job and know I’m lucky to have it. Could I see myself returning to management? Probably not.

“First of all, I would say I am enjoying my media work as much as ever,” Shearer said.

“But also, you have to remember I have been out of the game for over four years now.

“The longer you’re out of the game, the more difficult it is to get back in and management is not something I’m looking to do.”

Shearer's changed his tune regarding wanting a management job hasn't he? Did he do his coaching badges?

Less stress. He did the business as a footballer and if the passion isn't there don't do it. He'll be fondly remembered forever as a legend and the only management stint he had was his attempt at saving us from relegation...

I've heard countless stories about him being egotistical, arrogant etc etc but as a footballer the bloke gave me more joy and raw passion for NUFC and where I'm from than any other player. For that he'll be my favourite NUFC player for a long, long time.

Sorely missed and rightfully idolised for what he did here, can never fault the guy for the passion he always had for us. Though he is to blame for my infatuation with NUFC and for that lifetime of pain he needs to be held accountable!

It's a sad indictment that we'll probably never see anything of his kind in the foreseeable future.

Like he sort of said, the longer he's out of the game the less likely it'll be that he'll return to management.

I remember Hansen saying many years ago, when he was still being linked with the odd post, that it would be impossible for him to take a job in football. He'd criticised that many folk and was seen as a know it all, so if he was anything less than perfect as a manager he'd be laughed out of town.

I did a double take when I read about him not 'getting back' into football management. He scarcely dipped his toe in the water.

I always felt that he was reluctant to commit the sacrifices that would be necessary to pursue a career in management. It must have a big impact on your personal life.

Nah, he's right.  He's saying he'd be judged a hundred times more harshly than any other new football manager and that's correct.

Right, because of the amount of people he has criticized. Anytime someone criticizes another ofcourse people expect higher standards, let alone when they're paid to do it. If you're going to talk from a lofty position, its weak to back out because people might then expect you to back up that conviction. If you've to much self doubt to perform then dont argue with the performers surely.

I agree with you're second part as I think Maicon and other deserved a spot ahead of him. But overrated cheat? Probably one of the best right backs to play this game in his peak. Was a big reason to why Barcelona was so good, and I doubt we'll see any rightbacks reaching 20+ assists in a season again. Fred isn't picked on reputation either, he's picked because he's a leader on the pitch and has been great for the national team until recently when he's been dealing with injuries. 35 games, 17 goals is better than most strikers in this World Cup (and he's mostly scored against the best sides as he's a big game player) Stop talking out of your ass.

We have some. Falcao is an excellent pundit, but also down to being an extremely intelligent player. Casagrande and Junior are decent as well, Ronaldo is trying to do his job but isn't as succesfull. Have some horrible ones. The problem in Brazil is that the ones that are realy horrible are the ones that have never touched a ball in their lifes. There's so many you want to rip their head apart the ex-players usually know something at least.

:lol: hilarious how every brazilian player is the best thing since sliced bread. Dani Alves has been past his sell by date for a good few years now. It's a mental thing as he's won pretty much everything at club level, and the desire is probably gone. He's been one of Brazil's worst players himself, ironically, alongside Fred!

I suppose Shearer is also "talking out of his ass" with an agenda against Brazil eh? The host nation, and most illustrious world cup winner, needing the help of a referee to beat Croatia, and unable to beat a previously out-of-sorts Mexican team. Shearer has simply pointed to what he has seen. Fred might still pick up a couple of goals, but his performances in the first two games have been below poor, and that's a fact.

Alves' comment is as stupid as Scolari's insisting that "it was a penalty".

No one has disagreed with this, which makes your whole post idiotic at best. Shearer though has said Fred isn't a good player, that's based on two games in the last week instead of a career full of goals and an international record in games to goal ratio as good as his own. I agree with what Dani said, saying Fred isn't good enough is idiotic, saying Fred hasn't been good enough is something I agree with. Fred has had a career full of injuries, which didn't help him in the last two seasons at Lyon and made him go back. He's an excellent finisher.

Alves' comment is as stupid as Scolari's insisting that "it was a penalty".

Yes he is, if you watch the last Confederation Cups he's the boss of pressing (something we've been lacking this World Cup, don't know where the intensity pressing that easily beat the Euro's finalists has gone). Together with Thiago Silva and David Luiz he's considered the captains of the team, he's a vocal presence on the pitch together with David Luiz while Thiago is the one that provides the calmness and the mouth only when needed.

He's been so bad this season, I've been hoping he wouldn't get picked for the WC. He's starting now which is actually pulling us back, I agree with him on that, but to say that one of the best right backs of all times who's won everything on club level and played with the worlds best for many many years has no say in this is ridiculous.

I'm not even arguing whether Fred is good player or not. I initially thought that he was a good enough finisher that should he get enough supply and ammunition, he would finish more times than not. Having said that, he's only so far produced an embarrassing dive, and nowt else of note, and that's what pundits are picking up on. He is very badly out of form. This isn't a 38 game league season where you can say "wait for him to pick it up". He needs to be producing now. If this competition wasn't being held in Brazil, I think they would have found it a lot more difficult to qualify from their group than they will now. Having a clearly bent ref has exempted the likes of Fred from criticism it seems.

You see, this I agree 100% with. Although he's definitely not been exempted from criticism, he's been getting loads of them in Brazil. It's just that if I'm not wrong, Alves criticized Shearer for saying he's not good enough of a player. Fred should definitely and is getting criticism for his start to the tournament, but I find it extremely hard to criticize a players career for two games. I mean, it's like pundits from other countries criticizing Rooneys career based on two games at this World Cup. Therefore I agree with Dani on that Shearer's comments were absurd.

Fred isn't a bad player, he is in horrendous form though and if Brazil want to do anything he's going to have to pick it up.



No doubt, he has to perform for us to stand a chance at the World Cup and without him we have no reference up top which has been visible. The last string of hope I'm holding on to is that he loves the big games. He won't score against smaller teams but will score on the big occasion.

You could argue that playing for Kinnear had ruined the players and Shearer was in a no win situation, i'd buy that to be honest.

Hahahahahahaha. Good one.


Very objective of you.

I honestly thought you were joking. Souness was an abject failure everywhere that he went to, or at least everywhere that counts. Dalglish's managerial success ended in 1995, after which he wasn't a very good manager. The point I was making is that Shearer has been managed by a fair few managers and he rates Souness and Dalglish. You're allowed to love a player whilst at the same time thinking he'd make a s*** manager y'know?

Every where that counts? Stop talking out of your fart hole.

....That's eh...disgusting, but yeah, Souness was a comprehensive failure 'everywhere that counts' ie not Rangers.

Although he was great as a player, the man is as thick as pig shiiite! Why the hell would we employ another imbecil who cannot see further than his own nose???
I want somebody with intelligence, with his own football philosophy and the balls to carry it through, although this is virtually impossible with a fat cnut like Mickey holding the reigns.
P.S. His commentary on MOTD is bland, insipid and sleep provoking! What a complete tw*at he is...

I wouldn't want Shearer anywhere near the Managers job to be honest, he's a highly paid pundit paid to analyse the Premier league and yet can't name half the players in the Premier league :lol:. Imagine Shearer scouting and analysing foreign talent.  He'd get destroyed tactically by any half decent manager and his ego and past bust ups suggest his man management skills will be akin to Roy Keane.

He's is one of if not the best players to ever play for us but I don't think he's made for the management business and I think he knows that deep down.

A trophy with Liverpool and Blackburn. Not to mention couple of decent season with the later. I'd say that's closer to being decent than a "comprehensive failure".

But then he's a t***....  therefore it's OK not being objective.

No, he's just a s*** manager. How can a Newcastle fan not see that he was a s*** manager? It defies belief. He won one trophy but dismantled a team that had been winning everything going for over a decade. When he left Blackburn, he was on the verge of being sacked and SBR's team with Carver in charge beat them 3-0. He dismantled our team as well. I don't, I just don't understand what's so difficult to understand...

Well yeah, but it was after a better team with better players overall. It might have been coming to an end but he replaced a lot of excellent players with s*** players. Didn't like it at the time and I still don't now. If anything the context of him arriving after Keegan shouldn't be an excuse, but a further reason to criticise him for undoing everything wholesale.

Nowt that profound, just his criticism of England, the lack of quality up for selection and Gary Neville as a defence coach. More the fact he overruled both Savage and Murphy. Definitely the type of punditry you'd expect from Shearer the player.

Oh, and no iPlayer in the States? The f*** am I gonna keep up with Eastenders when I'm over there? :dave:

Spurs in 96-97 shortly before KK resigned was a bit of a solo effort, latched onto a nothing long ball and spun it into gold.

Chelsea away that season. Grodas saved the first effort but he kept it, shielded it from 2 defenders and knocked it top corner from the edge of the box. Superb.

His goal against Man U in 04-05 was quite the solo effort too. Probably the last of the really good goals he scored for us.

So many great goals to remember - I do love the Villa one as well.  Almost feel it is an underrated goal by non-NUFC fans because it was Shearer i.e. people didn't expect that kind of touch finish from Shearer.  In fact, Shearer generally had such an underrated technique - his first touch was consistently excellent.

It's amazing to think that he could have been even better and scored even more goals if he hadn't had those injuries and essentially missed 2 seasons of playing.

That was the end of Desailly. Shola made him look stupid too for his goal. Great game. Near the end of the season iirc. I think that year Shola scored 9 league goals. NINE! Looked like he might go on to become  a decent player.

I'm certain it was the day that Arsenal clinched the title at Tottenham which followed our game as I had a big double on us and them which returned a tidy amount but they conceded last kick to draw!

It was one of the Football's Greatest series. Can't believe you've never seen those goals though?

I remember thinking the same as for years you were always told the footage was lost. (Think it was when ITV might have had the rights for a couple of years back then) So it was a massive surprise seeing them. :thup:

Yes, likewise. Always read or heard that there was no footage. Only radio commentary, or maybe crappy footage of one goal and in black and white.

This looked like it was all in proper quality and colour :lol:

Partly true - Shearer certainly WASN'T past his best when he arrived in July 1996 as he was only 25 at the time...he had had a bad injury(cruciate)whilst a Blackburn, but it was the injury he suffered at Everton pre-season in 1997 which did for his pace although he was still a formidable striker and target man.
We WERE lacking a bit in defence which probably cost us the 95-96 PL title but it was loss of nerve as much as anything else and loss of concentration in 2 vital games.

The guy was a hell of a striker. The way he hit the ball man. Yikes.

It's a load of drivel though, as we had the second best defence in the league that season despite what the press tell you.

We lost the league because Ferdinand's arse fell out, and also Lee stopped scoring for about 3 months too. If we'd have had Shearer for that run-in we would have won it, due to him being a lot tougher mentally than Sir Les. So I can totally understand why Keegan decided to bring him in.

Aye, the press always bang on about our defence but the stats show we were decent in defence.  We just seemed to give goals away at key moments but that was our approach to games.  Try and win every single game.

Remember when he first signed it was unreal that we went and got him, loves the bloke ever since and really thought he was destined to manage us long term.

Some of his goals were ridiculous. Everton volley from Shola knock down, Villa  from the right were fantastic, he really did score every type of goal but lost a lot after that big injury that kept him out for an age, lost a lot of pace and movement but still scored goals

Batty in, Clarke out - that was as much a reason as any for results dipping that season.  Clarkey played it forward whenever possible, whereas Batty was all about keeping possession and so didnt look for the forward pass as often, or as quickly.  The team was better at attacking quickly, Sir Les especially, and so just didnt do as well after that switch.
Not sure whether Shearer would have done any better than Les in that run in as it was, but I reckon he'd have argued for getting the ball forward more quickly as a basic tactic

:lol: OK, this is my opinion. Everybody's arses went, unfamiliar territory, pressure from the media, they all say this, and it rings true. I'll hold my hands up and say I thought we'd win it, even after MU spawned their 1-0 (Cantona) up here - and we battered them -  and even after I'd-love-it-Gate. It didn't happen in the end, but I was proud that we had such a go at it. I still am and I love all of those guys. Man, top of the league almost to the end, best team in the league, brilliant.

This is the Shearer thread though, he was refuckingmarkably good. People can criticise his punditry and I won't care, he's got a lifetime pass for me. What did you want to do as a kid? Centre forward for NUFC scoring shitloads of goals, you say? There's the man you wanted to be. My hero.

The 0-1 result at SJP against Man U was the main reason for our failing to win the 95/96 title.
We had absolutely murdered Man U in the first half - if it had been a boxing match the ref would have stopped it but we failed to get a goal despite numerous chances(Schmeichel played the game of his life). Had just ONE gone in before HT I am convinced that we would have beaten them comfortably and they would have collapsed after it. Our one moment of concentration failure from that corner, which enabled Cantona to score lifted them from the depths of despair. They knew they had a chance after that and their experience under Ferguson was crucial.
Even then, we blew it at Anfield when we should have won and again at Blackburn.....we needed more 'Big Time' players for the following season and we signed Shearer but that was basically it and he missed several games through injury so we finished second again after KK walked in Jan 97.

We will never get as close to winning the PL as we did then unless something miraculous happens off the field.

It'll be fun seeing just how many he can get that's for sure.  He was fantastic tonight.

He did get 31 goals one season for Man Utd, but he also only got 18 in his last season.  I'm sure he'd get loads here and he has improved since moving to Madrid.  He did go straight from 18 in 33 for Man Utd to 26 in 29 in his first season at Madrid.  So I'm just not sure the defences make it quite as tough there.  Having said that Costa has come here and has been just as prolific, so maybe I'm overstating the difference a bit.

What fills me with pride is Shearer basically hasn't been surpassed by anyone in the modern era bar Ronaldo tonight and Messi eventually. Shearer did it at a time when football was probably a tad harder and had 2 horrific injuries that slowed down his career - where's Ronaldo and Messi have essentially played so much damn football (I know they've been dealing with injuries recently).

But my word, Shearer truly is one of the greatest scorers in league-play of all time - f***ing amazing to see him on that list.

I watch La Liga. It's a truly great league but I think what lets it down sometimes is the propensity of teams to throw the towel in. The defending, whilst good, isn't as good as the standard in the PL, either. For example 18 months back Soldado, Falcao and Negredo finished the league season with around 80 goals between them for teams outside the top 2. That's just not happening over here.

I didn't make out it was that easy, just easier.  If you read my other posts I acknowledged Costa had done as well since he came here as in la liga, Ronaldo had a nearly 1 in 1 season here and him and Messi would score loads.  I'm just not sure it would be quite as many.  They'd still easily be the top scorers.  Ronaldo as I mentioned had an 18 in 33 season before he left the premier league and went straight to 26 in 29 in la liga.  I've also watched ageing finished strikers like Hasselbaink and failing Premier League Strikers like Forlan score loads in La Liga.  Soldado was another good example of someone who has struggled since coming to the premier league.

I do watch a fair few of the La Liga games and it's the lower teams where it isn't the same when they play the top teams.  Sunderland last week kicked, scrapped and fought for a 0-0 against Chelsea.  They're not a good side but they kept out a top European team.  Compare that to a lot of the bottom teams rolling over for Madrid lately and losing by as much as 4 or 5.  It does happen in the premier league, but not as often.  The quality of La Liga is excellent and the general standard of pass and move football is a lot higher, so I wasn't knocking the league overall, more the standard of overall defending.

As far as I'm concerned the standard of play is clearly better there. The teams seem to be more cohesive and have clearer ideas and the players have better technical fundamentals.

I definitely don't think Unai Emery's Sevilla (team that won the UEFA Cup last season) play worse football than Man City. City have some world class players but the standard of their play doesn't match the quality of their team, hence their struggles in Europe. In Falcao's case, even ignoring his fitness problems, there can be no comparison between the perfect machine Simeone's Atlético has been to Van Gaal's Man Utd.
I also don't think you should use the number of goals scored by a striker in two different leagues as a yardstick to compare their relative strengths, there are various factors that influence this statistic (teammates, coaching, acclimatisation). Michu left a lowly team in Spain, arrived in one of the English teams that actually played well  and scored more goals. On the other hand there's no chance Soldado was ever going to score as much as he did in Valencia in the mess that Spurs have been since he arrived.

It's not a set in stone thing, but generally strikers between many teams who have played in both leagues usually have a better scoring record in Spain.  It's not definitive and it's only a speculation to extrapolate anything from that.  I accept that.  All I said was that I wasn't sure if Messi and Ronaldo would score as many goals in the premier league as they do in Spain.  The difference might not be loads and I'm sure they'd be top scorers, but over 10 years it might impact their overall total a little bit.

I'll be surprised if any forward, striker or world class attacking midfield player ever scores 23 goals in their first 13 Premier league games of the season for example.  Ronaldo is amazing, but teams are absolutely collapsing in front of him at the moment.

At some point you have to say enough is enough and stop selling.  I'm not sure there's a point like that with Ashley once the required price is met.  I suppose we're not alone there.  We've had quite a few good players in the past few years, but with Everton when Fellaini was seen as their star, Man Utd soon got him.  It was a ridiculous fee, but then so was the 35m for Carroll.  It's very difficult to hold on now unless you're determined not to see at any price.  Even the top clubs can quite easily have a player taken by Madrid or Barca.  It's just disappointing that our club never even puts up a fight really. Andy Carroll was our number 9, a club youth player, who was our best at the time and as soon as there was interest we just tried to get the best fee for him.  So definitely, if we do get another of Shearer's quality, he'll be gone in a heartbeat.  We've already set and followed the precedent.

This is a good point. I feel that kids growing up now won't even realise that there was once loyalty in football, and that NUFC used to be a resilient club in terms of holding onto its players. Its now just become 'Oh, Man City want him he'll go. Well, it is Man City afterall'. Sickening. Think back to clubs like City and Chelsea when Shearer was playing for us- they could only dream of pinching our best players (especially MCFC). The club has tumbled so far since then.

Shearer really was the last block of gold NUFC had to offer. It's been a tragic decline since. Watching him reminds me how unbelievable supporting Newcastle used to be- like, it was really incredible. I loved it, especially watching him. Moments like when he bullied Man Utd/West Brown off the ball (although it was a 1-3 defeat, it was the moment in itself which was beautiful) at St.James' Park and ran through and scored. You felt it really was Newcastle against everyone, and that you were going to win, so proud of the club.

Just an amazing player  :smitten:

We thought the same thing when Supermac was sold to Arsenal and it wasn't until Shearer was signed in 1996 - 20 years later - that we bought a striker with as much excitement around him. They were different in many respects but both had made a reputation by then although Macdonald made his mainly with NUFC whereas Shearer did it with Blackburn. Strangely, Macdonald was the same age as Shearer was(almost)when he was sold as Shearer was when he joined NUFC..26, and Macdonald had had 5 years with us by then.
It could well be a long, long time - if ever - before we either produce or sign a striker of similar stature to these 2 because NUFC is a selling club, will never pay top dollar for players(and strikers are ALWAYS top dollar if proven)and will never be a real draw to top players whilst Ashley and Pardew are running the club. Also, unless someone with Arab-type resources buys us, we will never be able to compete with the likes of Chelsea and Man C for players they also want.

When we bought Shearer he was at the very top of his game, arguably the best all-round CF in the world pound for pound and he had numerous clubs after him from Man Utd to Barcelona. Obviously being a Geordie helped him to make the decision to choose us, but had we not been at the time capable of challenging for the best, he wouldn't have looked at us twice.

Back then we could compete with anyone in world football financially and competitively on the pitch. In SJH we had an owner/chairman who was a brilliant businessman and in KK we had one of the world's most recognizable football names who was capable of selling sand to the Arabs that's how good he was.

Combined we were a force like no other. That club is long dead and we will never as fans ever belong to a club like that as long as Ashley is here. That to me is soul destroying and worthy of me handing in my notice so to speak RE supporting the club which is effectively what I've done.

But Shearer...  :smitten:

By the way he's becoming a very good pundit these days, far more authoritative and more outspoken, but also speaking a great deal of sense.

I'd still love to see him get back into management because I feel he has enough in him to be a decent manager. From what I've heard behind the scenes, when he took over NUFC for a few games, he was full of very good ideas, but he foolishly tried to implement them all straight away, this to a bunch of players who by that stage had zero fight nor interest in what was best for NUFC.

Anah, but Shearer would be more likely to put him in considering the ridiculous amount of assists that he got from him. It happens a lot on that programme.

I'm surprised Beckham isn't on there.
At a talk in at the city hall for Rob Lee's testimonial Shear and Lee were asked who they'd like Newcastle to sign and both said Beckham and got pelters off some in the audience for it as the WC 98 sending off still blighted Beckham.

I think because Shearer didn't tend to beat men with dazzling tricks or, certainly in the latter half of his career, beat defenders for pace, people think he had no technique.  The reality is that Shearer had a brilliant touch on him and a great crossing ability, together with his ability to bring others into the game - that is much a part of your technique as skinning players on the wing is.  Add to that his ability to score every type of goal and you've got an absolutely world class striker.

Not on here, but I think in general non-NUFC fans who didn't see Shearer in his prime don't regard his technique as being particularly good.

Shearer was the better all-round centre-forward or striker, but Henry was the better footballer. Bergkamp mind was even better, as a footballer that is. People forget just how great Shearer was, people w*** themselves silly over Costa but he's not a patch on Shearer or the likes of him. He, Henry et al were true greats of the game and their era, players who will be remembered for decades and talked about whenever the subject of world-class strikers/players and goal scorers arise.

Got a massive 'soft spot' for Bergkamp. My favorite non-NUFC player by far.

I think because Shearer didn't tend to beat men with dazzling tricks or, certainly in the latter half of his career, beat defenders for pace, people think he had no technique.  The reality is that Shearer had a brilliant touch on him and a great crossing ability, together with his ability to bring others into the game - that is much a part of your technique as skinning players on the wing is.  Add to that his ability to score every type of goal and you've got an absolutely world class striker.

I absolutely agree, well said. I think in today's game players like Shearer are discriminated against because they aren't the typical 'modern' player, the likes of Messi, Aguero, Suarez etc- small, fast players who weave in and out of opponents and always look to get in behind defences. England has a very proud history of producing great strikers, or 'target men', but I feel that we have made ourselves almost feel guilty about those players; like they've gone out of fashion and have no place anymore (which is rubbish, look at the amount of goals scored by a striker from crosses still- Carroll, Dzeko, Manduzkic, Costa, Llorente etc.). But, as people have said, Shearer was a proper CF. An absolute bully but a phenomenal footballer with outstanding technique. How he struck a ball was just unique.

Shearer > Henry, all day every day. As much as I want to be impartial...there's no greater striker the PL has seen and he's up there with the best ever strikers in terms of the last 20 years IMO. Shearer did everything he did with those injuries for team's that completely relied on him at times, and he did it with immense pressure to perform at home in front of his own people. There's over a dozen "factors" that made his job much harder, and when we finally put a squad around him worthy of anything - we were a top 5 side challenging for the title. It was a shame he had those 2 injuries later on and it was a shame we didn't see him longer with Kevin Keegan or Sir Bobby Robson.

I'm saying all this and Henry will go down as one of my favorite ever players as well.

Drogba's ability to get winners in big games has gave him an over inflated reputation.

He's nowhere near the very best in PL history, for starters he only topped 20 PL goals twice in his career. Compare that to the very best and it's quite poor.

In fact those two seasons aside his record is quite similar to someone like Bergkamp a guy who was a more attacking midfielder than anything else.

So no he didn't score loads.

The highest level of quality and dominance that I've seen from any player in the PL in one season is between Shearer 94/95, Henry 03/04, Ronaldo 07/08 (I think) and Suarez 13/14, but overall it has to come down to Shearer and Henry, both consistently outstanding for years. Both absolutely unstoppable.

He's come up a few times this season hasn't he? Seems like he is making a nice transition in his game as he loses his physical ability. He has always been a crafty player so I'm not surprised.

Always remember that goal Ronaldo scored against Fulham away in '06/07 where he picked it up in his own half and banged one in after cutting in. I think that was the point where he truly started to look like something above everyone else in the league.

Didn't even deserve the win that day, and in the following game we didn't deserve anything off Liverpool and O'Shea scored a 91st minute winner. It was Ronaldo's goal that effectively sealed the title that year though.

Post by: Gino14 on Wednesday 17 December 2014, 12:41:09 PM
Shearer was at his best for goals when he played for Blackburn.  It's not great shock that in a title challenging team he was more effective in that regard.  He was even more effective in most of those years than Suarez and Ronaldo as a goalscorer.  You can argue that they bring more all round play, but that's also to overlook Shearer's abilities because he's a more traditional number 9.  He was a great footballer, hold up man and did contribute to the team, working hard from the front and never giving a minute's peace to defenders. 

The amount of 20 and 30 plus goal premier league seasons he has to his record it utterly immense.  It's something he has over all his peers over a sustained period as well.  I wouldn't necessarily put him in the same league as Henry and Bergkamp for Football ability, or Drobga for sheer power and hold up play, but as an all rounder he works out as the one I'd choose to have up front in my team.  If he'd have gone to Man Utd he'd have won league's and champions leagues without any doubts at all so I wouldn't hold that against him in any comparison.  Shearer at his peak was unbelievable and every bit as capable of a special goal as most of the other players listed.

Ronaldo and Suarez are a bit different.  Their sheer ability to drag a team performance up with their energy, athleticism and pure footballing ability, leaves them with more overall to give to a team than Shearer I think.  Henry, Drogba and Bergkamp you can make great arguments for if you want to say they're better than Shearer, but I'd still choose Shearer personally.  I'm not going to claim I'm not biased though.

He has a 1 in 2 record despite never being a designated penalty taker and primarily doing donkey work under Mourinho. That constitutes loads in my book. Owen gets called a great goalscorer all the time and he never managed 20 PL goals once.

Cantona may have had a brief great spell compared to others but you have to factor in just what he meant to that side and team and how important he was. He along with Schmeichael pretty much won them the league against us and he was the one man that was consistent at either creating goals, scoring them and performing in games, especially the big games. I wouldn't have him in my all-time XI though.

4-4-2 based on individual strengths and consistency I'd go with:

Schmeichel
G.Neville
Ferdinand
Campbell
A.Cole
Ronaldo
Vieira
Lampard
Giggs
Shearer
Henry

That side would be lethal like.

I agree with you regarding Bergkamp, he is a class above the likes of Cantona who take away the cult of personality would be on a par with Le Tissier. Bergkamp was on another level and is easily one of the all-time Premier League greats. Had he been more selfish and played further forward he would have been a 20 + a season man, he certainly had the goal scoring ability as he could finish.

As a partnership it's probably hard to look beyond him and Henry, they dovetailed so well. Sometimes it's not always about statistics etc. it's about the aesthetics of play and those two were f***ing dynamite on the pitch, often a level above everyone else, even players equally as good such as our own Shearer, Drogba at his height, Suarez etc.

I doubt I'll ever truly understand Keane being in people's teams tbh, he was an outstanding leader and inspirational, but as a footballer I never rated him that highly at all. I'd have Scholes, Vieira, Lampard, and Gerrard all ahead of him.

Can't believe people are ignoring Scholes.

Usually he'd be in there, but I cannot look beyond Lampard who isn't as good a footballer as Scholes was but that goal scoring ability, big game mentality, consistency etc. for me makes him stand out above then,idea of Scholes and Gerrard.
Not in the same class as Scholes though it's not as if Scholes hardly scored either and his all round game totally overwhelm Lampards. Scholes is easily the best Premiership midfielder.

I certainly cannot understand those that have selected both Vieira and Keane. Keane was a very good player just in my opinion not as good as Vieira. But you'd only need one of them whoever you prefer.

As a footballer no, but Lampard was far more consistent as a goalscoring midfielder and technically very underrated, he is for example a level above Gerrard for me. Scholes for a period was arguably the best player England have produced since Gazza, but as he hit his late 20s he become less of a player for me, where as Lampard has always been a big player - even now he is guaranteed to get a goal or so given half the chance.

RE Keane, he was another underrated footballer, but he was also kind of limited regarding his all-round game, he is nowhere near the very best in that CM area in the history of the PL. I'd put Essien ahead of him individually, Makalele too. As a footballer he's not that far ahead of someone like Batty or Ince, but he played in consistent winning side that was very high profile which for me elevated his greatness somewhat. Great player of course, but not as great as Vieira or Makalele.

Well no he didn't. He never took games by the scruff of the neck because he wasn't technically good enough to . Didn't possess a killer ball or a trick. What he had was a decent engine and an amazing knack of knowing where the net was plus a sixth sense of being in the right place at the right time .

The not controlling games bit like Scholes, Gascoigne and even Gerrard could is why I don't place Lampard in the upper echelon of Premiership midfielders, though clearly his scoring record is outstanding as is his professionalism

I don't agree. His passing over short and long range was (and to some extent still is) outstanding.

He rarely had to 'take games by the scruff of the neck'.

Come off it, Beckham was a very good player for Man Utd, easily one of the best right sided players in the League of all time. Obviously not to the level of Ronaldo overall, but to say at his best he didn't come close is daft. Beckham was a constant supplier of goals and a real thrwt, plus his work rate and high standards helped to make that midfield four at Man Utd one of if not the best we've seen in the PL. He was immense at times.

f*** off :lol:

As for not grabbing games by the scruff of the neck, it can be argued by scoring game clinching goals that is indeed grabbing a game by the scruff of the neck and Lampard was great at that. Technically Lampard is or was very good, he was two footed and had a good range of passing short or long. Above all else he was an economically intelligent player, rarely wasted a pass, rarely shot if nowt was on, and never once passed up the opportunity to take it upon himself to get a shot away if and when he could, a rare commodity in a midfielder. He has been a sublime player, easily one of the best ever in this league and arguably the Alan Shearer of midfield - a colosus.

Lampard is a fantastic player, as a player he hardly makes hte hairs on the back of my head stand up, to me he is slightly tainted (not his fault though) by the screaming blithering premier league brand of 'best football in the world' and by being hyped as being a player who is both english and good. His failures at England again stand against him, but also some extent not quite his fault. The reason he didn't take games by teh scruff of the neck is cos we don't make midfielders that way.

My preference is for midfielders like Viera, Scholes, Fabergas etc etc but tbh when you look at what he has achieved it is hard to argue Lampard hasn't been a fantastic player and deserves a lot of respect.

Fabregas is an absolutely fantastic footballer and I can't understand how anyone can't see that. Mata and Silva aren't even the same type of player to compare and despite them both being in more advanced positions don't have the same impact that Fabregas does.

I love Lampard like, it does my head in when people can't see it or just look at his goalscoring, he's been a brilliant player and an almost complete midfielder for over a decade.

Not an opinion you come across very often, but I'd agree with that.

The competition for the central midfield players is very tough, with Gerrard, Scholes, Lampard, Vieira, Keane, Essien, Fabregas - you could make a case for any of them. Personally, I'd go for Gerrard and Keane.

Title: Re: Alan Shearer
Post by: NobbyOhNobby on Sunday 28 December 2014, 02:52:34 PM
But that's where it becomes Premier League specific and over the duration of time spent playing in that league.

Arjen Robben was class for Chelsea, but played 3 seasons.

Jaap Stam was class, but played played 3 seasons.

You look at the players being mentioned, and they played the majority of their careers (and certainly at their absolute peak) in the premier league.

The likes of Xabi Alonso and Michael Essien are obviously excellent players, but Alonso didn't play in the league for long enough and Essien had two good seasons before being destroyed by injury. In contrast, Keane and Gerrard became premier league legends over a sustained period of time. Similarly Lampard and Scholes fall into that bracket.

Not sure if anyone picked him over Henry but even you have the sense to acknowledge Drogba was a far superior all-round footballer to Ruud.

Lampard - It's not just "goal scoring" though is it. It's not like he's just scoring tap-ins after staying in the box all game which is a skill in itself. He makes such intelligent runs. He's not so great in that middle - possession hogging passage but he's brilliant at finding chance-creating passes. Look at the goals scored against Barcelona when they won the CL. Two delightful balls to Ramires on the counter. Not to mention all the actual assist Lampard has.

Fabregas is every bit as good imo. Better at different things though.

I actually think Silva is better than Fabregas. Fabregas is very much a PL player and has to play as such. Silva is tactically flexible but equally as effective. He often controls games coming from wide. Everything goes through him.

Drogba is above RVN comfortably. It's actually laughable to say RVN is above Drogba. RVN was a brilliant goalscorer - that's it. Drogba is/was a true leader for the team. And it's not like it was thrust upon him - he's just that type of big character. His all round game would make RVN embarrassed. In fact, the Didier Drogba lone man helped to take the game away from the RVN style poachers. Those teams would get outplayed. The great SAF Man United sides happened either side of RVN and it's no coincidence imo. The team after RVN often played without a #9 out and out striker type.

One of the best penalty takers to grace the game

Away at Everton. 2 pens, both top corner. Not too many better from 12 yards. Le Tiss, Cantona and RVN is all I can think of.
Such a contrast in style as well how both Cantona and Le Tiss took theirs in comparison to both Shearer and RVN yet all were equally effective.

Good shout on RVN's penalties like, just used to welly them right into the top corner.

Alan Shearer - The Last Of A Lost Generation

Alan Shearer has been the top Premier League goalscorer for over 20 years, yet his greatness is almost ignored in favour of those more 'sexy'. Daniel Storey pays homage...


1996 was the year that football 'came home' to England. Euro '96 united the country, a collective attempt to recapture the spirit of '66, Moore, Hurst and all that, a nation defined by football for one glorious summer. It was not to be.

Thirty-eight days after Oliver Bierhoff's golden goal at Wembley, football truly did come home to Newcastle. A city partied in the streets, celebrating the warmest of welcome backs. Fifteen thousand people had gathered in the car park of St James' Park, 15,000 worshippers outside their footballing church longing to pay homage to a returning deity. Forget the European Championships, forget penalties and forget the Germans - Alan Shearer was back where he belonged.

The mood in Newcastle on August 7, 1996 was one of jubilation, a cloud of hysteria engulfing every Geordie. The Guardian interviewed 63-year-old Barbara Donaldson: "The morning he signed I went to get my pension," she said. "Normally they're a right grumpy lot but that day everybody in the queue had a smile like a Cheshire cat. If you'd put us in for the Olympic high jump that morning, we'd have set a world record."

Newcastle owner John Hall and manager Kevin Keegan were suitably excited, effervescent with pride. "This sends out a signal to the world," Keegan said. You only half-imagined that he was limiting this boast to the world of football.

Amidst the hoopla, Shearer seemed calm and reserved, almost embarrassed by the fuss he was causing. He was presented to the fans on a makeshift stage, flanked by two large novelty blow-up bottles of Newcastle Brown Ale that looked like an elaborate joke about Geordie bouncers. And then he beamed, a smile that seemed like it would never be taken from his face. Confetti was thrown, scarves were raised, flags were waved.

When Shearer finally spoke, he seemed shy and nervous, talking almost exclusively in clichés, before revealing a glimpse of his true emotion. "If money comes my way, that's fine," he concluded. "I'll deal with that when it comes along. It certainly won't change me. After all, I'm only a sheet metal-worker's son from Newcastle." Whatever the gap in wages, fame or adoration, he was one of them. And they loved him for it.

Newcastle fans have a history of adoring their strikers, from Hughie Gallacher to Shola Ameobi via Jackie Milburn, Malcolm Macdonald, Kevin Keegan, Peter Beardsley and plenty more besides. But, amidst all those favourites, Shearer was different. He wasn't so much loved as worshipped. Every fan wanted to be Alan Shearer, and to them he epitomised everything great about a city that lived its life through football.

Ask any supporter for their favourite memory of Wor Al, and each will be different, but preceded by the same reaction: That far-off look into the distance, the widening smile and shining of eyes. Shearer was not just their hero, but also their everyman, their "sheet metal-worker's son". Every Geordie loved Shearer because, on some minute level, every Geordie felt as if they were Shearer. He simply lived their dreams.

It is odd now thinking about Shearer as a player, closing in on 20 years since that unveiling and a decade since he retired. He is a great, perhaps even the great Premier League striker, a complete forward boasting an astonishing goalscoring record. Yet Shearer's achievements and ability feel strangely overlooked. Except on Tyneside, of course.

Shearer now appears part of a lost generation. At a time when English football was desperate to sell itself as sexy and continental, his brilliance was almost became brushed under the carpet. It now seems bizarre that his Premier League career overlapped Thierry Henry's by seven years.

He is, as you will know, the top scorer in Premier League history, his 260 goals putting him 73 ahead of Andy Cole in second place. The gap between Shearer and Cole is larger than that between Cole and 16th place on the list. He has more PL goals than Stoke, Crystal Palace and Nottingham Forest, amongst many others, and scored 11 hat-tricks; no current player has more than six.

This level of goalscoring is so rare in an Englishman. For all Wayne Rooney's excellence, no domestic player has won the Premier League's Golden Boot this century. Rooney will come close to overtaking Shearer's record, but is likely to fall short. Whilst the Manchester United striker has scored more than 20 league goals in a season twice, Shearer did so on seven occasions. A reminder too that the latter was 22 by the time the Premier League even began.

Shearer's goals came in 441 matches, at a rate of 0.59 goals per game. He can also boast a record of a goal every 147 minutes, which is behind Edin Dzeko, Luis Suarez, Ruud van Nistelrooy, Thierry Henry and Sergio Aguero. However, if you take out Shearer's matches after turning 34, that record is less prolific than only Henry, Van Nistelrooy and Aguero.

His longevity must also be applauded. He scored more than 20 Premier League goals in a season in 1993/94 and 2003/04. His first PL brace came on its opening day and his last in April 2006. Should Rooney fail to reach 260 league goals, his is a record that is likely to stand for another 15 years at least. If Harry Kane, the latest Bright Young Thing, scores a goal every other league game (never missing a match through injury or suspension), he will overtake Shearer by the age of 35. That helps to put his durability into perspective.

Shearer's record must also be put into context of the clubs he played for. His only career honour (Le Tournoi aside) was the Premier League title in 1994/95, and he shunned a move to Manchester United in order to join his hometown club. If we examine the three aforementioned strikers (Henry, Van Nistelrooy and Aguero) who have a better minutes-per-goals record, they finished in an average league position of 2.3, 2.4 and 1.3 respectively over their time in the Premier League. Shearer's figure is 6.6.

In short, he was the complete striker. Most notable was his power, epitomised by Alex Ferguson's summation that Shearer "kicked the ball as if he wanted to kill it". However, he also possessed a wonderful technique, and his volleying was amongst the best in Europe at his peak. That over 20% of his Newcastle goals were scored with his head reflects his obvious aerial ability.

There is a tendency to see Shearer as functional, but this is grossly unfair. It's as if our brains cannot compute that volume of goals. Luis Suarez scored 31 goals last season and everyone lost their s**t - Shearer matched or bettered that for three seasons in a row.

However, the most fervent praise is reserved for the way Shearer changed his game after serious injury. A snapped right anterior cruciate ligament in December 1992 did not severely hamper the striker's future career, but when Shearer then tore his ankle ligaments in 1997/98 and suffered further knee problems, he transformed himself from all-round striker to target man. He suffered another serious knee injury in 2001 and had further operations to relieve the effects of tendonitis. It was a medial ligament injury that finally ended his career in 2006.

Perhaps it is Shearer's reputation for being 'boring' that affects his standing in comparison with other Premier League greats. 'Sexy' is the word you would perhaps use least to describe his game, and Shearer's personality and demeanour is of a quiet, family man. You cannot name his wife or children, and his wedding was not splashed across Hello magazine. Even Shearer's celebration was mocked for being boring. He was labelled 'Mary Poppins' by then Newcastle owner Freddy Shepherd for his cleaner-than-clean image. As if that's a bad thing.

Shearer also suffers for his punditry career, his brand of 'Alanysis' on Match of the Day criticised for being bland and cliché-ridden. Whilst the accusation may be true, he is simply a product of his own environment. If the show really wanted anything more provocative, it would have been demanded by now.

In many ways, Shearer is a collection of contrasting notions. He is a legend in Newcastle, and yet scored 112 goals in 138 league games at Blackburn. He began his career as a poacher, but ended it as one of England's finest ever target men. He was a Division One striker, but in a Premier League era. He was a footballing great, but a man who never sought greatness.

But, most of all, he was a Geordie. "When I was a young boy I wanted to play for Newcastle United, I wanted to wear the number nine shirt and I wanted to score goals at St James' Park," Shearer said upon his retirement. "I've lived my dream, and I realise how lucky I've been to have done that." The people of Newcastle consider themselves lucky to have had him.

He also had a few lean years, with Kenny, Ruud and when SBR first took over to clean the mess up of the previous two managers.  Lost years for Shearer.

Yeas ago, about 2002...Me and AfroP had to go to Leatherhead for some work.  The staff down there were then expected to come up to Newcastle to help oversee the transition etc.

They came up and were shocked at how big Newcastle was and how many cars there were.

Shearers comments are stupid and unhelpful.

Wonder if he ever regrets not answering Sven's call to play at the 2002 World Cup in the months leading up to it? He'd just had a brilliant season, I doubt just playing that tournament would have had THAT much of a baring on his club career, and I genuinely think with him at that time rather than Heskey starting, we could have beaten Brazil with their 10 men and went on to win it.
Title: Re: Alan Shearer
Post by: Optimistic Nut on Saturday 27 June 2015, 02:34:27 PM
Also the knock on effect that could have had on Newcastle. I doubt he'd have been given the armband back from Beckham so wouldn't have had the iconic moment of lifting the trophy, but him being the main striker at the World Cup at a time where football was beginning to boom over in Asia. I know he was already big over there but he was no longer the 'big' star (people like Ronaldo, Beckham, Zidane, etc) being the global stars, but being the star striker in a World Cup winning team after being on a par with Henry & van Nistelrooy goals wise in the league that year with us back in the Champions League at the time that was really taking off...could have been monumental to this club in the long run in terms of our global brand.

I wasn't a Sinclair fan, not least because he threw his toys out of the pram when not selected originally, but he came into the squad when someone had to pull out, may have been Gerrard? I'd have played Dyer personally ahead of him.

Danni Mer-fee.

I always just rightly or wrongly assumed that it was because he thought that it would be canny shan to retire from international football and then go back just because there was a World Cup on. It's like being a fairweather player I suppose, but it probably doesn't work like that in real life.

He was, but with Gary Neville injured, who else was there? Luke Young had a go there, he was average at best. Phil Neville was well Phil Neville. We were bereft there like we were wide left.

Mills had a canny tournament I thought. That was our time to win a WC, but we didn't and it all went down hill after that for Sven and that so-called golden generation. Shearer there might of helped England as he had come off the back of a great season, was bang in form, and of course a leader and an experienced head.

He was as he was. Average. But once again, he had no competition for his place. He was the only right back in the squad. They could've gone down the wing back route and perhaps they should have. They had two world class centre backs plus a very good one in Keown to make a back 3. They could've then played Ashley Cole and Dyer as wing backs. Might've helped but Sven was far too rigid as a coach to change .

Even when we were losing or were s***, we still had SHEARER and with him leading the line and leading the team there was always a chance or a glimmer of hope of better to come. There are very few figures like that. KK was one, Sir Bobby too. People you could trust to do their job to a very high standard all the time and to always give you hope and reason to believe. I f***ing loved Shearer, one of the greatest players ever and he played for us for 10 years and is and probably always will be our all-time top goalscorer.

2. Referee influence - he knew how to get what he wanted off the ref 9 times out of 10

The Luque YT Video was great. Yes Ronaldo the line in the song was very profound for want of a better word.

Where can I find Owen getting booed coming on for Man Utd? Can never find it now.

The ceremonies and all at the testimonial were amazing. The huge banner outside, the tifos inside.

Just the game itself could have been better. Injury aside, it just being Celtic and not some all star affair was a shame.

In any case, glad I made the trip at the time.

It basically ruffles some of their feathers because they have such a big and justifiable idea of what Man United is. They're not used to being rejected so I guess some fans want to know that he regrets his decision. When they realise that he doesn't, they then try and go 'yeah well we won loads of trophies'...some of them can't comprehend someone wanting to play for their home town club without winning anything in the same way that some of them can't comprehend supporting their home town club without winning anything.

He's 30 in 2 months, he's scored an average of 13 goals over the last three seasons, Man Utd are no longer pissing the league, he's 75 behind and he looks f***ing shot. It's over. He'll be lucky if he keeps fit enough to come within 30 of the record IMO.

The fanboy in me hopes it is never beaten, but then records are there to be beaten. Ronney would feel a little too soon, but in any case realistically he's going to have to have some amazing seasons to get there.

Growing up it was always said that a 30+ goal season was not just good but amazing. I even remember an interview of Shearer himself saying no one would ever hit 30 league goals again... Only for Kevin Phillips to get there 10 months later. What Messi and Ronaldo have been doing the last few seasons certainly puts it all in perspective.

You'd expect Rooney to head somewhere like MLS once he stops playing regularly for Man U. The only lesser Prem table you could see him going to is Everton, and that would be with a 70%+ pay cut. To break Shearer's record, Rooney will probably need to score the remaining goals for Man U.

Given the likely scenario, Ancelotti/Pep/Klopp etc. managing Man U in two seasons' time is going to want to play someone else and will have anything up to 100M to get that player in. That's if Van Gaal doesn't do it first. Common sense says they should buy a central striker this window or next, and they can afford the best one available and willing to go there, whoever he may be.

Eh? Don't know if anyone is really outraged, but you'll have different levels of quality in the output and it would be better for it to look decent. Also, it doesn't necessarily have to be lifelike to be good. Some artistic licence can result in something great.

That Bobby Moore one at Wembley is class.

The left hand/ arm is just wrong, he looks like he's leaning on a bar. I'd have preferred an open hand as well. They must have looked at hundreds of photos to choose from until the sculptor confessed he couldn't do fingers. The head is ok, the forehead is too big though.

It is better than Sir Bob's though, winds me up every time I walk passed it.

What's the story behind the two? Did the first one actually get made because it looks like a joke. And the second one is Peter Falk.

Oh and by the way, anyone going to old Trafford tomorrow give this a whirl. Stand looking at the matt busby statue for five minutes then ask one of the Japanese / Aussie / Irish guys who are taking photos, who the f*** it is? When they spit out Sir Matt in utter disgust, nod slowly then say, oh right who's he then? They love it.

Ahhh, okay.

None the wiser, tbh.

It's my favourite Shearer goal too. It's a class hit, from an audacious angle against a goal keeping legend, on a volley and in a position your not really ever expected to score. It's outrageous to try it and to score it. It's not a typical Shearer goal either.

I can remember hearing about the Everton goal on the radio. Commentators saying that it was something "you're going to want to see", and probably Alan's best ever goal.

Which was some statement at that point in his career. Didn't disappoint.

I like that he had those three screamers in consecutive seasons near the end of his career. Villa, Everton and the Chelsea/Desailly goal.

Post by: HTT on Saturday 5 September 2015, 06:57:50 PM
One of my fave Shearer goals is one he scored in a 7-1 win at home to Spurs, a ball over the top he chased down and out muscled several defenders before smashing it past Walker I think.

As a finisher, Shearer could do the lot. There isn't a goal he couldn't score. When he was at Blackburn he even dribbled/junked past players to score. Technically his finishing was of the highest standard possible. Left or right foot, side foot, laces, volley, half volley, free kicks, curlers, blasters, toe pokes.

He connected with that ball so well, the Spurs semi-final goal a prime example.

I can't quite remember who said it but it basically went along the lines of 'you look at Shearer and he looks old and slow, but he is quicker than anyone to a ball in the box or with his head.' This was in his final few years.

I also remember a quote from Maldini in the build-up to France 98 in a Shoot interview type thing that asked him which striker in world football he feared the most and he said Ronaldo and Shearer, the two finest centre-forwards of that generation for me.

We had battered Everton all game yet they were leading, Dyer had went close before Shearer scored. There was only a few minutes left of the match when Shearer scored that goal, we went on to win it with Bellamy scoring an identical goal to the one he scored against Feyenoord, and in stoppage time as well.

Lives the life does Shearer, like. Works once a week. Spends the rest of the time on the golf course or getting drunk. And that's when he isn't abroad at one of his holiday homes. Fair play to him.

And he'd still spark you out inside 1 round.

Never been sparked out in my life, actually. I leave that type of thing to weakling runts with s*** clothes.

I agree completely. But while Ashley is in charge any notion of what Newcastle United is or stands for is lost.

Ashley has stifled the club to such an extent that what is left is merely a rotting carcass of what was previously a proud club. And as long as Ashley gets 40k+ every home game then that's our future as well as our present. A pale imitation of the Newcastle represented by the likes of Keegan, Shearer, Robson, Speed, Lee et al.

I thought they were saying different things, albeit not incompatible. Shearer wanted to stress that McClaren was handicapped through having to accept another person's (ie Carr's) decisions on transfers.

McClaren has had his successes as a manager, but perhaps he's not a fire-fighter, and that's what we need right now.

Oh yes, of course. But I just think Shearer is limited to what he can say, I'm sure they have discussed it before going on air and I'm sure watching in the BBC studio hecwould have been saying all sorts. Maybe Keown said it and yes I have also heard it before, when he was England manager a number of players said he was like having an extra mate on the field training and not a senior figure instructing.

Ten games to go? Newcastle fans can’t stomach another 90 mins of this rubbish
Alan Shearer runs the rule over the sorry situation on Tyneside

By ALAN SHEARER, SunSport columnist
22:30, 6 Mar 2016

THE MOST shameful slur anyone can possibly aim at a professional player is that they simply don’t care about their club.

But today that can be aimed at 90 per cent of Newcastle’s players.

Their pathetic performance against Bournemouth proved it once and for all.

Was I surprised by it? I shouldn’t have been after the dross that has been served up by the team this season.

But still I expected so much more in a must-win game.

Bournemouth arrived at St James’ Park knowing they were still in a relegation fight — and rolled their sleeves up.

They came with an attitude that they were simply not going to be beaten, not going to go down. They put their bodies on the line with every single player pulling in the same direction.

Not so their opponents. I think in Newcastle’s side only midfielder Jonjo Shelvey can escape criticism.

Then the manager Steve McClaren comes out after the game and tells us the positive is that there are ten games left.

I would suggest that’s actually a negative, because many fans can’t take another 90 minutes of this, never mind ten of them.

They have Leicester up next — and having witnessed another superb display from them on Saturday in winning against Watford — I think boss Claudio Ranieri’s men could rack up a cricket score.

Newcastle owner Mike Ashley is a very wealthy businessman but surely even he can see that this model is not — and will not — work at the club.

They have spent £80million on players this season and, at the moment, Shelvey looks like the only good investment.

The person who never seems to get a mention in this whole mess is chief scout Graham Carr.

He holds a lot of power in terms of recruiting and selling players — and has quite frankly made a pig’s ear of it.

We keep hearing statements of intent from the club, shame we never get one on the pitch.

Most recently on Saturday the players issued one as to how they were behind their manager.

Well if that was playing for their manager, goodness knows what will happen when they down tools.

Quite simply they are not playing for McClaren or the Newcastle fans.

Steve was very lucky to get this job after overseeing Derby’s implosion last season.

For some time now he has looked powerless to stop a slide into the Championship. Because that is where I am CONVINCED my club is heading now.

And don’t believe that the size of the club means they will be bouncing back any time soon either. They could go right through the Championship as well, because there are barely any characters in this side who would fight to get the club back up. They simply do not care.

They have betrayed a club, a city, a community, with their lacklustre and totally heartless performances.

They may even be responsible for losing a generation of fans.

When I joined this club in 1996, it was everyone’s second-favourite team.

Fans from outside of Newcastle loved the passion around the club, the feeling and the way we played football.

Now everything around it is just negative.

The club even alienates a media that wants them to do well by having unedifying rows and bust-ups.

Quite simply, to save themselves Newcastle are going to have to do better than Sunderland between now and the end of the season.

I don’t see that happening. You watch Sunderland under Sam Allardyce and you see a team that wants to stay in this division.

A team that wants to fight for their club.

They will meet at St James’ Park in a fortnight, in what could be a winner-stays-up clash. It is now five years since Newcastle last beat their local rivals — and Sunderland have won the last six meetings.

I expect them to make that seven.

There is simply no evidence that this Newcastle team are suddenly going to turn the corner and find a performance anywhere near worthy of a shirt graced by so many great players down the years.

It was an honour for me to play for Newcastle. Not just because I was a local lad and a fan.

It was an honour to play for a set of supporters with so much passion and pride and hope and desire.

I wouldn’t have changed that for more titles and medals.

I would have liked to have got some for the club and we came mighty close — but it was still a fantastic time.

A time when the club was the heart of the community and had players who wanted what those fans wanted. Not now, not any more, and that is shameful, just shameful.

Shearer's record is incredible.

However, that particular stat is a bit misleading because he'd had getting on for three seasons playing as a starter in the English top flight, then called the "First Division", before playing in the Premiership. In other words, he had three seasons to get up to speed in games not counted as the Premiership. Foreign strikers like Aguero can arrive as pretty much the finished product, but the games in which they adjust to English football will be counted. To break Shearer's record, they'd have to start scoring on arrival.

100 goals in 124 games is an amazing run of sustained form regardless of whether those are your first 100 games or not. Basically unstoppable.

Quote
I AM devastated, hurt and angry that my club has been relegated again.

Memories come flooding back from 2009 and it is painful.

I am not looking forward to a season of Championship football and I really feel for the staff who are going to lose their jobs.

But there is no getting away from the fact that this has been on the cards for a long time now.

Lessons have not been learned from 2009, the same mistakes have been made and the club has got what it deserves.

It is like groundhog day.

I watched Sunderland’s 3-0 win over Everton on Wednesday night in a pub with some pals, all of us Newcastle fans.

Some of them didn’t renew their season tickets last year and I’d be surprised if the others do now.

Last time Newcastle went down their average attendance was still huge.

But I suspect that might be different this time around because the people at the top of the club are just not learning.

Under Mike Ashley, Newcastle’s sole intention has been simply to stay in the Premier League and make money.

It hasn’t been to win a trophy or get to Wembley — it has just been about avoiding relegation.

So it is ironic that when the big money comes in next season, Newcastle are not going to be there.

People at the club need to take a long hard look in the mirror and big decisions need to be made. Everyone has questions to answer, starting with the owner.

Before Newcastle’s final-day clash with West Ham last season, Ashley was asked where the responsibility lay for the club’s problems and he replied “my door”.

But he has continued to take a back seat and has instead allowed people to run his football club and make huge, huge errors.

Managing director Lee Charnley has been the man in charge of the club’s managerial appointments. They include last summer’s hiring of Steve McClaren, which did not work at all.

He compounded that mistake by only making a change with ten games to go.

Then you have chief scout Graham Carr who has overseen recruitment and that has been terrible.

Let’s not forget the players. They have not taken responsibility for themselves.

The one thing you have to do in the Championship is to fight and scrap.

So clearly this team has to be ripped up because they do not currently have the characters to do that.

I hope St James’ Park is only going to see Championship football for one season and one season only, like last time they went down, although I can’t confidently predict that will be the case.

It would be brilliant if Rafa Benitez stayed and tried to get Newcastle back up.

But like I have previously said, I would be amazed if he does because he will have offers from all around the world, including the Premier League.

If Newcastle can’t persuade him, they must get a manager in quickly to start the rebuilding process.

And they have to allow him to manage and let him to bring his own players in — not players that are under 26, that they then try to sell on to make a few quid.

I am sure Sam Allardyce will have had a little smile to himself that this has turned out how it has.

It is incredible when you think that Newcastle have now gone down twice since they sacked him in 2008.

I know Sam and he has done a fantastic job at Sunderland.

As much as it pains me to say it, you have to say well done to him and the club.

They made the decision to make a change when it needed to be made.

If only Newcastle had done the same.

Just for anyone, journos mainly, pushing the "ironic that it was sacked former manager Sam Allardyce" line, it was a textbook "on the beach" performance from Allardyce's West Ham that confirmed our safety last season under the lip licker. Since Hull couldn't win their last game, it didn't matter at full time, but there were plenty of people bricking it when the game kicked off. One of them being Carver himself, I would imagine.

One season after Allardyce left, West Ham have been challenging for Champions League.

'The one thing you have to do in the Championship is to fight and scrap'

I'm sorry but that bit is just plain wrong, it's lazy often said nonsense, the Championship isn't like that anymore. Virtually none of the teams up the top 'fight and scrap'. They're organised and most play decent football on the floor. Look at the three that came up last season, Bournemouth (outplayed us twice), Watford (the same) and Norwich (certainly no scrapers).

Play good attacking football and be good defensively, two things Rafa will get us doing and we'll get out of that league impressively imo.   
Title: Re: Alan Shearer
Post by: M4 on Friday 13 May 2016, 12:59:35 AM
The fight and scrap argument really is lazy PFM bullshit: Put to one side and ignore any actual footballing ability you may have, and just get out there and fight.

What does "fight" even mean nowadays in football?

It's the sort of mentality that has seen us take the field and get thrashed left right and centre by any team who fancied passing the ball. Including our local rivals.

The irony being that when fight and scrap was meant to be a focal point (like most of Pardew's lineups), the players had very little fight in them.

When we ended up run away winners of the Championship in 2010 we certainly didn't do it by fighting and scrapping.

I think if you look at the teams we put out in promotion season - especially the first half of it -you'll agree that we basically had a team (with exceptions) of grafters with hints of quality. In attack, especially, you won't get anywhere unless the quality is compounded with experience and a pair of bollocks. It's not like the Premier League.

He's had plenty of good games this season and has proved a handful. He'll hopefully be playing under a better manager, better team and against weaker opposition. Can easily see him getting 15+ next year.

I think if you look at the teams we put out in promotion season - especially the first half of it -you'll agree that we basically had a team (with exceptions) of grafters with hints of quality. In attack, especially, you won't get anywhere unless the quality is compounded with experience and a pair of bollocks. It's not like the Premier League. Defenders in the football league will f***ing eat Mitrovic alive, for example.

yep totally agree the people who say Mitrovic will be a beast in the championship need to give their head a shake. The clogger centre half will eat him up for breakfast

look at the championships top strikers recently

Deeney, ings,Vokes,Rhodes,Austin,Vardy, Wilson,Oghalo, Gray all of these absolutely streets ahead of mitrovic

he will struggle like f*** in the division imo need to get rid of him asap
How many goals have Vokes, Gray, Wilson and Rhodes scored in the Premier League like?

Mitro, for all his faults, has got 8 in a s**** team and hasn't started every game this season, being benched for McClaren's first couple of games and obviously for much of Rafa's recent spell. He's also only 21.

The defenders in the Championship might be "bigger and stronger" but they are also shitter than the defenders in the Premier League, which is why they play in a lower league.

Mitro barely played consecutive games all season, he was in and out of the team constantly and still managed to end up with 8 goals. Also playing for one of the worst teams in the division. Yes he missed chances but Vardy, Kane and Aguero all missed chances this season. His conversion rate is actually quite good.

If he is our main striker next season and we're at the top of the Championship, he'll be one of (if not the) top goal scorer in the Championship next season.

"At the top" is what I said meaning anywhere from 1st - 6th imo he'll be top scorer, or very close.

Don't see what is daft by that statement. Everyone who is claiming that he is s*** seem to think he's incapable of scoring, so if he was our main striker and we were at the top he'd still be s*** and not scoring, no?

People have written this bloke off for no reason at all and a lot of people on here love to be dramatic and see everything and everyone negatively. He's a much better player than people give him credit for.

No he's not

I've said it many times he has nothing to his game that will ever make him a decent striker

1. He can't jump or head a ball with conviction
2. He is as slow as a week in the jail
3. He can't shoot and panics like f*** everytime he gets in the box
4. He can't read the game at all
5. he never gets into positions where he'd be dangerous or look like scoring
6. He has no composure infront of goal

All the idiots on here saying ah but its because he's 21 and in a new league is absolute bullshit and an excuse. Both man city and man united have 3 young lads between them upfront who are younger and never played in that league before yet they can do it simply because they have what is required to be a top level striker

mitrovic simply doesn't have it and never will if you're good enough you're age is irrelevant

Mitrovic has at least scored goals in the Premier League and had chances to score a few more

I have no doubts he will score goals in The Championship BUT I don't want us to rely on him, need to get at the least a proven goalscorer in and have Mitrovic with Armstrong as support

just one negative to mention, Carroll, that was f***ing embarassing, i could teach a monkey to run at a man in possesion of a football, he never moved his arse once. if he thinks that the only job he needed to do was get on the end of long balls then he shouldnt be anywhere near a football team.

Carroll :lol: Utter s****.

Shola might be s**** but when you put him up against Carroll, he looks like Shearer reincarnate.

Carroll is useless. Jogs around, does nothing, can't head the ball.

Geez Carroll is making me want to have Ameobi back, which is quite something

I have a better touch than Carroll - hes awful.

Carroll is absolute w*** btw.

Carroll was one of those I was unsure of tbh. While he looked like he had two left feet when he was running with the ball  I can remember he scored a pretty smart finish where he cracked a left footer low into the corner of the net. I haven't seen that from Mitro at all. He's decent as a target man, but he looks like a player who is more comfortable with his back to goal. Too early to write him off, but we shouldn't be relying on him for goals if we want promotion first time of asking next season.

Liverpool when we put three past them, I even did a pic in the 'Football in Paint' thread on it :)

Carroll had scored goals in the PL too, by the way.

Yep, at City too under Kinnear when the Given thing was kicking off.

That was the game where Pardew took all the credit for Hughton's work wasn't it? :lol:

Now the stupid c*** is trying to talk up Dwight Gayle after ignoring him for most of the season in favour of Connor Whickam.

As good as he was in the Championship, I was still really dubious about him until we were promoted because despite his quality, he's really not my type of player. He is now though because he made his style of play just so enjoyable to watch. Watching him batter centre halves all over and be ridiculously dominant in the air was just an absolute joy. The moment for me was that header from a free kick against Wolves, I think I described it at the time as being a header that would get a lass pregnant, and it really was, we all f***ing loved him in that season.

Some of the posts from that match thread, including one from me:

just one negative to mention, Carroll, that was f***ing embarassing, i could teach a monkey to run at a man in possesion of a football, he never moved his arse once. if he thinks that the only job he needed to do was get on the end of long balls then he shouldnt be anywhere near a football team.

Carroll :lol: Utter s****.

Shola might be s**** but when you put him up against Carroll, he looks like Shearer reincarnate.

Carroll is useless. Jogs around, does nothing, can't head the ball.

Geez Carroll is making me want to have Ameobi back, which is quite something

I have a better touch than Carroll - hes awful.

Carroll is absolute w*** btw.

:lol: He was shocking like.

This is even more shocking.

Duff MOTM for me.

So maybe it was a confidence thing, maybe it was right place/time or down to the players around him. None of us know but I've seen enough Mitrovich to think there's the possibility of the same thing happening to him. I doubt Carroll would have made it through had we been in the PL.

Yeah it did. He was pretty poor at the start of The Championship season.

Everything suddenly seemed to click for him after he scored twice against WBA in the cup. Remember when he came on against Man City at home and was a complete waste of time, everybody was absolutely foaming with him. :lol:

I was one of them, that performance was a catastrophe
