If you don't have it, the DVD with all 206 goals on is a great purchase. What a privilege to have been a season ticket holder whilst he was here.

Chelsea at home - glorious sunny day - 03-04 - Shola scored a decent goal to make it 1-1 then Shearer totally owned Desailly, pinned him and smashed one into The Gallowgate top corner from 25 yards!

Everton at home. And still see it if I close my eyes and also hear the thud off his boot when he connected. :)

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.

This is all making me realise that I need to go back to the dvd and refresh my memory.

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! Robbie Keane and his bellend celebration I think - a penalty rings a bell after a howler from Jens the mad German!

I think the free-kick he scored against Arsenal last day of the season (2000ish maybes) is underrated as f***.

Yeap. He had a few nice ones that season like that strike late on against Bradford at home from outside the box.

He scored an outrageous free kick at the reebok which gets forgotten.  We lost 4-3

4-1 away to Boro

The pen in his last game at the mackems is amazing

AT everton he scored 2 amazing pens on season

The Villa and Everton ones were better than brilliant. 10/10. Non-NUFC fans can moan that he's a boring pundit, but f*** them. He's a proper hero for me.

The man is god to me.


Alan Shearer:

404 games for Newcastle - 206 goals
63 Caps for England - 30 goals
733 career games - 379 goals
Newcastle's all time leading goalscorer
Ended his career by scoring against the scum in a 4-1 win
Turned Man United down, but lived the dream Alan Shearer=TRUE LEGEND

The Villa one was the best for me.  Absolutely outstanding technique, liked it more than that Everton one.

Absolutely. Was against Schmeichel as well. Nobody should be thinking of volleying in at the far post from that angel and position, Shearer did it gracefully and made it look p*ss easy. Defo my fav of his.

Also loved the volley against Everton, and the turn and shot vs Chelsea. The free kick against Man Utd was silly as well.

I even think he's a decent enough pundit these days. :laugh:
Newcastle 4-4 Arsenal: "From impending tragedy to near-triumph via the most improbable route possible - 95 minutes that neatly encapsulate 130 years of football on this particular piece of grass. Newcastle, United, will never be defeated."

Sir Bobby Robson - What is a club in any case? Not the buildings or the directors or the people who are paid to represent it. It’s not the television contracts, get-out clauses or the marketing departments or executive boxes. It’s the noise, the passion, the feeling of belonging, the pride in your city.

Also, match of the day is a very hard show to be good on IMO. You are commenting on about 7 matches in one night, maybe one or two of which you've actually seen a full game. It's difficult to make interesting observations on games that you have only seen highlights of
"Lots of young fellas runnin' around in shorts, that's the kind of think you like looking at, and I bet you like that too, only you're probably imagining what they'd look like without shorts, you're sitting there imagining that with a big smile on your face, ya dirty fecker"

Can I just clarify that the guy is my f***ing hero? I'm saying nowt against him.

Shearer. Hero. No problem.

In fact, to the extent that at my wedding my stepson (number 2) shouted out that I should wheel away with the Shearer one-armed salute after she said "I do". And I did.

A bit embarrassing for all concerned tbh. :blush: Thank god the rest of the day was brilliant. Or outstanding if you want to be pedantic.

Plus I'm sure a lot of people don't give a crap about the pundits and just want the show to get on with the action. I know I do. Shearer or otherwise if I'm watching on iplayer or downloaded I normally skip the chit-chat.
