There was definitely a good 3-4 years towards the end of his career when he was still taking free kicks and every single one of them went straight into the wall :lol:

I might have made this up but I seem to remember on one of the end of season DVDs that Shearer's daughter was mascot against Villa so he thought "I'll have to do something special for her" and then he did that.

The fact its against Schmeichel too makes it so wonderful

I'm at the Fed now where he is doing a talk in tonight. Not expecting much from him.

Tell him to have a word with McClaren along the lines of "No man's heed should have an island".

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.

None of them ever were.

The last one that immediately comes to mind of him scoring is an indirect free-kick against Sunderland. I think we went 2-0 within the first 3 minutes or so.

The second wasn't long before half time. Nearly right, though.:lol:

With the shout on the Villa goal. My favourite too.

Everton one for me.

Just such an utterly brilliant hit. The f***ing power of it man, felt bad for the net.

The time it came at in the game makes it all the more special too IMO.

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.

Consider that Chelsea goal as the last we saw of the real Shearer.

Have said it before, but you could hear the thud off his boot, in Level 7 as he connected for the volley, v Everton. Wonderful strike. :thup:

I still remember my reaction, and everyone else around me as well when that Everton goal went in. The look on people's faces was priceless.


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

The hit was great, but the backing in and subsequent shrugging off of Desailly before hand made it even sweeter. Also love it when the keeper simply watches it, knowing he is powerless to get anywhere near it.

I'd say his goal against Man U the following season when he was pretty finished. Absolutely ragdolled West Brown before slipping it under Carroll.

One of my favourite Shearer goals has to be the one in the San Siro. Not for the quality of the goal but purely for how mental the 10,000+ fans went behind the goal. Fan-tastic.

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.
Wee Hughie - the greatest centre-forward Newcastle United ever had

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.

Was it, wow I thought it was pretty early on.
Anyway I think the first goal was scored within 90 seconds.

Yep, it was really early. A lot missed it getting to their seats.
