Alan Shearer seems to be a big supporter of RafaBenitez. And before Rafa agreed to take the job as Newcastle manager back in March, he had talked with Alan about the job and what could it entailed and what some of the problems were that werelimiting the success of the club. Itcould also be true [.
The Newcastle United Entertainers drew 2-2 in their game with a Manchester United Select XI at Kingston Park thisafternoon to commemorate the 5-0 thrashing Newcastle gave the Red Devils on October 20th, 1996.

Alan Shearer reported yesterday on Sunderland being 2-0 up after an hour in their home game with Crystal Palace yet they couldn't hang onto their lead and a goal deep into injury time from Christian Benteke led to their 5th defeat in the first six games. After such a disastrous start this season confidence cannot [.
It's been a little while since we heard Alan Shearer talk about Newcastle United and and our resurgence in form and results over the last six games. That's after we surprisingly went down to defeats in our first two games against Fulham and Huddersfield. But those defeats emphasized what Rafa had been saying all along [.
Rafa Benitez pulled no punches yesterday in his praise for Alan Shearer as his new statueat St. James'Parkwas unveiled in what was a reallymemorable day for both Alan and the club.

Rafa Benitez showed yesterday how he can be both quick and decisive in making decisions, as he quickly replaced the departed Fabio Pecchia with new first team coach Mikel Antia, who used to play for Rafa for the Real Madrid B side back in the 1990s. If the Newcastle Board had shownthe same leveldecisiveness last [.
Alan Shearer was interviewedat the launch of a charity match yesterday in aid of the Alan Shearer Foundation and he is still surprised that Rafa Benitez decided to stay with Newcastle, even though we are now in England's second division.. Alan sayshe was surprised some other club didn't move in quickly for him, but that [.
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.
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 [..
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.
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 [...]
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 [.

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 [.
It's 20 years since Alan Shearer signed on at Newcastle from Blackburn Rovers for £15M a world record at the time. A year earlier Blackburn had pippedManchester Unitedby one point to be the Premier League Champions for the first and only time. Bu in 1996 Manchester United were top again winning by 4 [.
The year was 1996andEngland as a nation was gearing up for Euro 1996. England the national team were busy limbering up with a string of pre-tournament friendlies, most of which passed by in a haze of uninspired mediocrity.
However and this is a new one on Pies it would appear that one of England's pre-Euro '96 jollies came perilously close tospilling over into a full-blown international diplomatic incident.
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.
