Alan Shearer’s legendary Newcastle United status is well known by everyone who follows the game and aside from his playing career, there are no doubts as to where his loyalties lie when it comes to his punditry, criticism of players when he doesn’t feel they’ve given their all in the shirt and nor his criticism at our owner.
Having swapped Blackburn Rovers for Newcastle back in his playing days, however, as he wanted to turn out for the side he grew up supporting, his decision to not move to Manchester United and invariably win more silverware still rankles for some – especially in the direction of Old Trafford and one fan showed that upset in a rather brilliant way recently and The Magpie Channel were more than happy to give him the air time he felt he deserved.
Whilst it’s animated, you don’t do it justice unless you have the sound up.

Having stumbled across the piece – I say stumbled as opposed to the many fans who must have sent it his way – Shearer’s response was simple and concise.
