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

:yao: i can't believe some of these comments like.

Winning the FA Cup would be the best day of my life, as would winning the league cup.

I don't think I'd take an FA cup over Shearer... Think. It's not just him being here for 10 years but it's the club that him being here created, and maintained. Yeah we won f*** all and we went through shitty periods, but f*** me that spirit in the fanbase him being here created was brilliant, man. Shearer leading us in the Champions League and being England's leading man was a really proud time. Then him and Bobby together, man. Commanding. I'd take the 95-96 title and Les staying here longer over Shearer joining, I think that would have just been spectacular. But yeah, those 10 years not just with him, but as a club, were brilliant.
I still don't think his legacy is done here, mind. I think when Ashley finally goes, at some point he'll be back in some part.

Totally agree. I think he's got all the attributes of a good manager (those who say he took us down, we've been down under Rafa too).  There's no way he'd come and manage under the FCB, but if/when the fat c*** f***s off, I feel that Shearer could be our next Keegan.

Nah, can't see him ever managing the club again. My guess is that he's made his peace with that also. Maybe the youngsters at some point, but certainly not first team or close.

Given how outspoken he is about Ashley he would quite certainly get some form of embassador role under a new regime. Would seem like a quick win for anyone coming in.

Probably because the club he'd want to manage is owned by a total c***, and instead of f***ing himself over failing under that t***, he is happy making easy money on MoTD.  I mean all he has to do is be less s*** that that jug eared tosspot Lineker, which he does easily.

Nah don't think he'd manage us again. Can see him being involved in the club overall at some point, though. Not exactly sure how.

As an ambassador or getting involved with the Foundation, most likely.

He should be in a boardroom level and never coaching at this point. He should be helping guide the club forward as he knows it’s true place and potential. Managers come and go in this day and age.

Shearer has been on record at various talk-ins saying he enjoys his life too much to ever become a manager, but has said that under the right conditions and circumstances, he’d never turn NUFC down if offered the chance to manage us again. KK has said the same even after his ordeal with Ashley.

I can’t se it myself and don’t think he’s cut out for it. The whole experience under Ashley has scarred him badly. For what it’s worth I don’t blame him even the tiniest bit for our relegation, nor Rafa either, both times when the took over it was inevitable and nothing they could have done in the time they had was ever going to be enough to prevent that.

I thought had he stayed on, had some backing and brought in the right people around him, he would have done a good job for us though and showed himself to be capable enough as a manager.

I much prefer him as a pundit and as a personality these days, he is usually spot on and his thing with Ian Wright is f***ing great, they need a show together because their chemistry is great and they are both funny and natural together.

That photo with Ronaldo.

:smitten:

I’m paraphrasing, but in the build-up to France ‘98 World Soccer did a big feature interviewing stars of those teams who qualified and Ronaldo was asked which striker he most admired and could learn something from and he picked out Shearer as the complete centre-forward and his ability in the air and shooting from distance as something he can get better at.

Maldini was also once asked which centre-forward he feared the most and he picked out Shearer also saying he was a complete centre-forward and someone who he would need help to stop because he wasn’t easy to stop on his own.

Shearer was asked which defender he feared the most and he said no-body, but he’d rather not play against the Italians and Argentinian’s who of course knocked England out. He’s since said Adams was the toughest defender he’s faced.

The striker he most admired? This may surprise people, but he chose Bierhoff of Germany at that time.

I wish I still had all those old mags, books, programmes, pinks, Chronicles and pull outs from the 90s. I gave them away a few years back. I used to love World Soccer, by far the best football mag out at that time.

Those who didn’t get to see peak Shearer or at all, we literally signed a striker who today would have no equal IMO and back then was the most-complete CF in the world if not the most talented which was obviously Ronaldo and a few others too.

I rate Harry Kane and he’s a decent footballer and underrated as one for me, but Shearer was a level above in his prime. We were robbed of that after his injury, but he came back, changed his game, and was still as good as any at scoring goals and playing the role of the centre-forward.

The best we’ve ever had and likely ever will. His legacy, however, will always have some young Geordie kid wanting to emulate his achievements and that is one of the reasons why I wouldn’t swap say winning the FA Cup in ‘98 or ‘99 for Shearer and what he did in our shirt. It’s thanks to players like him whose feats inspire kids in a way that silverware never can. Kids who if good enough will give a generation of fans and our club a Shearer of their own one day.

If such a player can win the club silverware doing so, that’s the icing on top of the cake, if not, I’d rather have 10 years of a Shearer than 10 years of a Shola.

I just think back to what mattered to me most as a kid, what it was that drew me in and what it was that made me fall in love with my club and the game, and it was the players and what they did on the pitch. Not 3 points, finishing top or staying up or Wembley Finals, those things were important to the club, the manager, the team and history books, but for me personally, they come second to an Andy Cole or a Kevin Keegan.

It’s hard to overstate how exciting signings were then. When we sold Andy Cole my teacher stopped lessons to let us put the radio on :lol: When we signed Shearer I was on holiday and my Dad faxed the back page of the paper to us at the hotel. Great times :lol:

I was at school at that time in a lesson, a rare thing for a serial truant like me, and the teacher basically stopped the lesson, put the radio on and we all basically sat there in silence. Usually a few of us would have a kick about after school or go to a mates before going home, I ran home that day and cried my eyes out. I hated KK and thought that was the end of NUFC as I knew it. I never quite got over it even when we signed Sir Les and went so close to winning the title. As a kid all I thought was yeah he’s good in the air, we are doing better as a team, but we could have done all that with Cole. I won’t lie, I used to root for him at Man Utd and cheered his lob that won them the league one year.

I don't know about our best ever like, obviously he is in the discussion, certainly he is the best i've seen with my own eyes, but...

Hughie Gallacher scored 133 goals in 160 games for us :lol: and was apparently an amazing allround player.

I had a 100 best footballers of all time thing ages ago and Gallacher was 27th.

Brazil Ronaldo was 100 i think, Shearer not on it.
