But you can not help wondering what might have been had he joined Manchester United and regularly tested himself against the very best in Europe."
Manchester United fans will never understand why Shearer turned them down, twice, because the concept of regional loyalty is one that is alien to all but a handful of them.
Shearer was prepared to gamble a guaranteed sack-full of medals at Old Trafford with the chance of winning just one piece of silverware for his hometown club.
It's a sad old world that pillories someone for not taking the easy option. Again, a difficult thing for all glory-seeking Manchester United fans to comprehend.

It's such a shame as Newcastle were doing so well!!
I can't believe what happened today. Newcastle have lost both players for th FA cup semi final. I still believe that they will get themselves together on Apr 16th as Man U are struggling.

It is an outrage.
Once again Newcastle chairman Freddy Shepherd has shown himself to be totally incapable of running a football club. Bowyer should have been out on his arse first thing this morning, and the appeal against Dyer's red card is an insult to the intelligence. The FA will rightly dismiss the appeal.
