Arsenal have been on a high this season until their weekend defeat at the hands of Manchester United. In a frustrating twist to their purple patch of form at the beginning of the season, David Moyes finally got another result against Arsene Wenger in the Premier League.

In this week's episode of FFS (Friday Football Special), the blokes take a look at Alan Shearer from a fly's-eye perspective during his continued summer adventures, plus David Moyes still knows his place despite taking over from Sir Alex at Old Trafford.

When he was setting Premier League goalscoring records and becoming the most expensive player in the world during the mid-nineties, Alan Shearer was extremely entertaining. But since becoming a pundit on Match of the Day — where his role is to describe a goal going in over a replay with absolutely no regard for analysis — the Geordie hero has not been quite so captivating.
Since I wrote a few pieces on how Alan Pardew's Newcastle United had become the biggest "long ball" side in the Premiership this season some time ago, It piqued my curiosity to look beyond and see how the "route one" style favoured by Pardew this term compared with that of his predecessors, and possibly, what [.

It was 1996 all over again at St James' Park on Wednesday evening, as Alan Shearer, Sir Les Ferdinand, David Ginola and Rob Lee were among the names in a Newcastle Utd legends side assembled for former goalkeeper Steve Harper's testimonial.

So this Leonard Messi scores a few goals and all of the sudden everyone wants to give him a record.
