I wouldn’t swap HBA’s time for a cup win either though ;-)

Mitro maybe

I'd swap the memories of Mitro for 10p and half a bag of slightly soggy Quavers.

I wouldn't swap the time we had Shearer for anything.

I'm very proud of just a handful of things to do with NUFC. Shearer is most definitely one of them.

:thup:

If the Ashley era has taught me anything, it's that the most important thing to have as a football supporter is pride in your club. If I'm supporting a Newcastle United which is doing everything it can to uphold its identity as a sporting institution and a source of regional pride; and is doing everything it can to be successful... then any silverware would just be a bonus as far as I am concerned. Shearer was the embodiment of that attitude and I doubt we'll ever have a better example in my lifetime.

Hopefully we will win something at some point, and of course you'd hope for more successful periods than unsuccessful ones; but as long as we're trying, I can live with it. I might be talking out of my arse here, but I bet the vast majority of NUFC fans in their thirties remember the 95/96 season with more fondness, sentiment and clarity than any ManU fan remembers any of their 90s successes.

Question to all: Would you swap a decade of Shearer in our shirt, for the FA Cup in say 1998?

Very good question; interesting that the opinion seems very much split on this one.

Im in the no camp personally for reasons put much more eloquently by others already.

Not a chance, Shearer gave me so many fond memories, I wouldn't swap his time here for anything, the man was everything a striker should be and more.

This would have been a lot harder to answer back when it felt like the F.A Cup meant anything.

I personally wouldn’t swap one solitary FA Cup win for the decade or so of Shearer and all those goals, moments and what he as a striker and goalscorer made me feel watching him playing for us that I don’t think a Cup win could ever quite top.

A title win would be different of course, but in that context I don’t think I’d swap the KK era we enjoyed for the Dalglish era Blackburn enjoyed which resulted in a title for them and not for us. I’m sure they wouldn’t swap either and rightly so.

Sadly for Shearer, his performances and goals for us deserved to be rewarded with silver, but as ever with Newcastle, we’ve had more great players than great teams and because of that the Shearers will always mean that little bit more to us and their goals, performances and moments more special.

For me certainly anyway.

Got to live through a decade of watching our greatest ever player, and one of our own. We've got 6 of those FA Cup pots already man, not a contest.

Probably a bit against the grain, but I think I would swap it for a win. One big trophy win would have done so much for the club. Those finals as a kid crushed me. Imagine what it would be like knowing that our club is actually capable of success and has achieved it in recent times. Theres such an emotional connection to shearer, and I love that he chose to stay with us, but at a time when the FA Cup was a huge thing, a win would have sent the city bonkers in a way no-one would have forgotten.

I can't believe anyone saying Shearer over an FA Cup win.

You are basically saying you prefer a player over a trophy for NUFC.

Really?

The club and it's honours list is more important than any player ffs :lol:

fa cup win over any player, for me anyway.

Watching Shearer and that 95-96 team and even some of Bobbys teams was an absolute joy but if someone said you could swap it all for us to win a trophy id bite your hands off. Im 44 years old and my first game was in 1978 and went regular prior to moving to the US and in them years give or take a few years purple patch ive been fed on a diet of s***. After seeing us win f*** all for 40 years and having accepted that ill never see us win anything in my lifetime id swap any kind of feeling of winning a trophy over any player no matter how good he was

Anyone saying different needs their head read to be honest

Nah, football is played on the pitch. 10 years of entertainment far outweighs the knowledge that it says on a bit of paper that we beat 6 teams to win a cup once.

We're so alienated from the idea of winning things that we think it's just about looking at a bit of paper. :lol: The memories, celebrations, and sheer jubilation at winning a trophy can't even be taken into account because no one can imagine it.

It’s difficult to swap Shearer for anything in hindsight, but if we had won something we’d have different heroes. The history of the club could’ve been completely different as well, with the title if not the cup.
