Alan Shearer has been telling everybody who would listen to him for a few weeks now there was no way that Rafa Benitez would stay at Newcastle and manage a second division club, when he would have big offers coming in from all over the place. But that's what the Spanish manager has done as [...]
Alan Shearer is still not convinced that Rafa Benitez will accept the Newcastle manager position and manage the club in the Championship next season. Well at least Alan is consistent and he's sticking to his opinion, even though the news coming through seems extremely positive that Rafa could be signed up before the end of [.
It seems like keeping Rafa at Newcastle if we are relegated is a (Tyne) bridge too far and Alan Shearer in his column in The Sun today thinks it's a really long shot at best for Newcastle to be able to retain Rafa Benitez. Alan rightly points out the world-class manager will have offers [...]
In his column in The Sun today Alan Shearer has lambasted the incompetents runningNewcastle and points out they don't seem to learn from their past mistakes. Seven years ago when we were in danger of relegation they waited untileight games to go before Alan was brought in, but he couldn't save us.
Norwich result opened the door out of relegation @SunderlandAFC emphatically took the chance while @nufc messed up.Advantage @SunderlandAFC Alan Shearer (@alanshearer) May 7, 2016
Alan Shearer reacted to Newcastle's great 1-0 win against Crystal Palace today when Andros Townsend fired in a brilliant winner in direct from a free kick. But it took a brilliant save from goalkeeper Karl Darlow to preserve the win when he saved brilliantly to his left from Yohan Cabaye on 70 minutes.
Newcastle are coming into some good form under Rafa Benitez, but it seems that Sunderland remain the bookies favorite to be the team that survives the drop over Newcastle United and Norwich City. And it seems from Alan Shearer's comments in his Coral column today that he may also fancy Sunderland as the team that [.
Alan Shearer tweeted it was another good point for Newcastle today at Anfield let's hope the games don't run out before we are safe. Even though Steve McClaren should have been fired long before March 10th and 28 games gone with just 24 points. Another good point today for @NUFC I hope they don't [..
Good point tonight. Work rate and effort finally at the level they should have been all season. #nufcvmcfc — Alan Shearer (@alanshearer) April 19, 2016
Newcastle have now taken 4 points from the last two (home) games and Alan Shearer was again impressed by the spirited performance of the Magpies in tonight's game which ended in 1 -1 draw with high-flying Mancsheter City although Aguero's goal after 14 minutes was clearly offside and should have been disallowed.
Well it's game on at the bottom now! Great result for @nufc. Look forward to Tuesday where I'll be at #SJP with @5liveSport #NUFCvSwans Alan Shearer (@alanshearer) April 16, 2016
It looks like Alan is over here in the states watching the Masters and he didn't like what he saw in the first half that's for sure. Who did? It didn't get any better in the second half and we were outclassed, outplayed, outfought, outgunned out everything! We were a complete and [...]
No lack of effort today. A lot better 2nd half but defensively still very poor. #nornew Alan Shearer (@alanshearer) April 2, 2016
The great Alan Shearer has sent out a tweet today in support of Rob Elliot, who was injured last night playing for Ireland against Slovakia and will be out for at least six months according to Sky Sports News. Devastating news for @the_dilsh Football is cruel at times. Newcastle's best player this season by a [.
Stopped the rot but the result helps neither side. Fair result in the end but @NorwichCityFC are the big winners this weekend. #nufcvsafc Alan Shearer (@alanshearer) March 20, 2016
Alan Shearer says he would love to play in this afternoon's derby against Sunderland, but the Newcastle legend also senses that we can come away with our first win in almost five years against the Black Cats today. Alan Shearer he just scored again It's rare that I ever want to pull my boots [...]
In his column in the Sun today Alan Shearer has said that in his conversation with Rafa Benitez on Friday, he told Rafa he would be an absolute hero if he gets it right at Newcastle and builds a successful team. Well Alan´s right there and the former Newcastle striker also hinted Rafa could [...]
Rafa Benitez has proved himself to be a savvy person since he arrived on Tyneside last Friday and he has been conciliatory to those in power at Newcastle, such as Lee Charnley. He´s certainly giving the impression he can work with them and seemssomebody who has been brought in because of his stature in [.
It looks like we have to thank Alan Shearer in part for getting Rafa Benitez to Newcastle last Friday, because Alan was one of the main men that Rafa talked to before deciding to accept the manager´s job at Newcastle. Rafa knew about Newcastle´s massive untapped potential when he was at Liverpool, because he has [.
Alan Shearer has come out with some pearls of wisdom today that Rafa Benitez must be allowed to manage Newcastle United in the way he sees fit and there canbe no interference from above. After all Rafa knows so much more about football and what it takes to win than all of them put [...]
Exciting appointment for @NUFC What a coup! Let's just hope Rafa is allowed to do what he needs to do-manage! Alan Shearer (@alanshearer) March 11, 2016
In Alan Shearer´s column in The Sun today he blasts the Newcastle United club and especially takes a shot at Chief Scout Graham Carr, who is in charge of all the transfers at Newcastle, which he seems to have assumed control of over in the last couple of years, maybe because of the vacuum of [...]
#AFCB showed exactly what @nufc are missing. Desire, passion, hunger... and a lot more @bbcmotd Alan Shearer (@alanshearer) March 5, 2016
It looked like after 18 days of preparation for the game at Stoke City last night Newcastle went into the game with a match-plan to hold Stoke and get a draw and with Newcastle's perilous position in second bottom place in the league that's simply not good enough and shows no courage whatsoever. We [.
Sky Sports pundit Alan McInally seems to be questioning the age of Newcastle striker Aleksandar Mitrovic, who is currently injured at the moment and is expected to be out at least two weeks. McInally was appearing on Gillette Soccer Saturday show on Sky Sports last Saturday and he admitted he didn't realize Mitrovic had only [.
This is how Alan Shearer reacted at half time after Newcastle were 3-0 down all scored in the first 17 minutes and we looked a complete shambles. What had the players and Steve McClaren been doing on the training field all week? On the plus side we can't be worse in the second half [...]
Alan Shearer was like any other fan at the end of the game yesterday just absolutely delighted we had got what he called a big big 3 points. And on top of that we put in a very good performance too, although to be sure the results are the most important things these days [...]
Out of the bottom three. Big, big three points today. #nufc Alan Shearer (@alanshearer) February 6, 2016
Newcastle awful again tonight. Rob Eliott MoM AGAIN. #introuble #EVENEW Alan Shearer (@alanshearer) February 3, 2016
In his column today in The Sun Alan Shearer, who has never had exactly a warm relationship with Mike Ashley since Alanmanaged Newcastle for eight games back in our relegation season of 2008-2009 has some rare praise for the Newcastle owner today. The legendary Newcastle ans England striker has said Ashley cannot be faulted since [.
Today we should see Andros Townsend sign for Newcastleand that would be the second Englishman and the third player signed this month for a cumulative amount of close to £30M. We paid out about £12M for both Andros Townsend and Jonjo Shelvey and around £4.5M for Henri Saivet so that's close to £82M spent [.
While discussing the finer points of Newcastle defender Chancel Mbemba's handball against Manchester United on Match of the Day last night, Gary Lineker slipped a cheeky little masturbation joke into the post-game analysis.
After Alan Shearer remarked that Mbemba 'tried to make himself bigger with his hands', Lineker's eyes lit up as he immediately sensed the opportunity for mischief.
I preferred it when Newcastle didn't try in the Cups. At least then we had an excuse! #NUFC #CupsandTop8 #EmiratesFACup ? Alan Shearer (@alanshearer) January 9, 2016
It's very obvious what Newcastle need in this transfer window. Played well today but missed good chances AGAIN #luckyarsenal Alan Shearer (@alanshearer) January 2, 2016
Steve McClaren keeps saying that Newcastle areplaying well but that we have just been unlucky over the last few games in picking up just a single point. But on TuesdayAlan Shearer said thatSteve should stop saying Newcastle were playing well because the BBC Match of the Day pundit doesn't think Newcastle are playing well at [.
We had chances to win this game in the second half after Everton had dominated the first half but just like last week against bottom club Aston Villa we failed to take the chances. Hopefully the powers that be at the club will know we need a top striker brought in next month. This [...]
On 8th April 1988, Southampton's prized young gem, a spindly blonde urchin by the name of Alan Shearer, opened his senior goal-scoring account in style.
At the tender age of 17 years and 240 days, Shearer got things under way with a hat-trick against Arsenal at The Dell and, in doing so, became the youngest player to score a hat-trick in the top flight of English football.
Watching on as Newcastle United recorded a precious 2-1 home win against West Ham on Saturday afternoon were a a couple of superstars, in the contrasting forms of Toon Army legend Alan Shearer and superstar singer-songwriter Ed Sheeran...
The multi-million selling Sheeran was in Newcastle to perform at a charity ball for the Alan Shearer Foundation charity and even sported a Newcastle shirt for the game.

As you may well be aware, two teams led by Alan Shearer and Robbie Savage are currently part way througha mammoth 57-hour game of 5-a-side being staged outside the BBC building in Salford Quays in order to raise money for Sport Relief.
The epic duel began on Thursday morning and is scheduled to end on Saturday evening, with the oddly-specific duration chosen as 57 hours is the exact amount of football played by one Premier League team over the course of a season.
