Devastating news this, love the man.


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

f*** man.

Absolute legend of a man. Enjoyed him most as Ritchie on Bottom, but he was just fantastic in general and by accounts of friends who have met him, a genuinely lovely bloke. Remember reading Stephen Fry's autobiography and his introduction to Rik Mayall - fantastic reading. Think he quite aptly described him as 'irrepressibly charismatic' or something like that. Bit corny and all that, but he was one of Britain's treasures, he really was.

Rest in peace.

Only just recently got excited about him being on Twitter as well. Turned out it was fake, which was disappointing, but now he's dead. Just...eh?

This. All the more because I'm in the US - nobody will have a clue what it means. I used to sneak watch The Young Ones on our portable B&W when I was supposed to be in bed.
Obviously, I'm speaking of a hypothetical world in which there is a greater club than Tottenham.

Legend. :( I'll always remember him as Rick from The Young Ones and also as Alan B'stard.
