Benfica with Souness, Deane, Minto & Pembridge were one of the sides, can’t remember the fourth team?

Empoli according to the BBC. Absolutely nee c*** went to it either, just over 5000.

It's a weird feeling and thought having your childhood hero turn 50.

Still, thank you for the good times, big man!

Happy Birthday Al, now grow some balls and start thinking about your home town club rather than the money you make from promoting the PL and writing articles in the Sun. He could so much to encourage change and is just the person the supporters need to get behind to get rid of Ashley and to get us our club back. Unfortunately it doesn't look like he has the balls to upset lots of footballs vested interests and do it.

What's your favourite Shearer goal?

?s=21

Classic old-style centreforward play. :coolsmiley: We won't see his like again.

Always gets neglected how good his passing and crossing was too. Could have got another 50 if he was on the end of his own crosses

Not true. His crossing ability was renowned all over.

Pre season Riverside tournament in 98 or 99

Think they branded it as the JD tournament. I was there on the Sunday but not the Saturday. It was absolutely s****. Remember Perez playing in goal and Stephen Glass playing for us. Other than that, nothing.

Hopefully that means he won't be working for The Sun any more.

Can't rewrite history. Will always be a playing legend, but I couldn't give two tosses for his sponsored opinion.

It's a strange one with Shearer.
Like most if not all of you of a certain age, he was my absolute favourite player growing up (I'm 36) and felt he represented us with pride, passion and performance.
But as I've gotten older, I've found I really rated him as a player, but not so much nowadays, as a pundit or personality. Don't get me wrong, he'll always be a legend etc - I just find that I much more identify with Kevin Keegan and Sir Bobby Robson, in terms of what they stand for, and in terms of their values and principles. Those guys I could listen to all day, watch documentaries about, read their autobiography and be inspired. Probably not the case with Shearer though. Is that weird?

Could see the shackles off writing for the Athletic.
Bullshitters misrepresent themselves to their audience not as liars do, that is, by deliberately making false claims about what is true. In fact, bullshit need not be untrue at all.

Rather, bullshitters seek to convey a certain impression of themselves without being concerned about whether anything at all is true. They quietly change the rules governing their end of the conversation so that claims about truth and falsity are irrelevant.

First thought, question that came to mind also. Apparently that is indeed the case - good. Caulkin confirms in a tweet.

Yeah it's really exciting tbh. Hopefully he doesn't assimilate with Caulkin and Waugh and their fanzine vibe too much.

Sorry, a rerun of an oft-made complaint but f***ing HELL I wish they'd get rid of Taylor Payne. I mean... is this it, then? The same absolutely lifting patter about sausages and "ye dad" jokes and Chris Waffles lololol every single week? Over and over and over again? At risk of sounding like a humourless fart I wish he'd just grow up a bit; the playground stuff's alright occasionally and with a bit of irony, but very tedious when it's laced into every segment. He went on a rant about the PPV thing and that was great, actually talking like a normal human adult for once. You seldom get that, though.

:thup: 100% Yorkie

I remember their old podcast around the time of the Pardew or Ashley protests and they had Caulkin on. I was excited to hear what they had to say about it but instead  spent the first 20 mins shiteing on about sweets from the 90’s and fancy cheese. p*ssed me off so much that by the time the serious chat came on I had lost interest.

Well said. The patter on that podcast is f***ing horrific.

Makes it unlistenable.

Can understand what you mean. Shearer is an ordinary guy, like your next door neighbour. Just happened to be one of the greatest strikers of his generation. Not inspirational as such, like Keegan or Sir Bobby.
