Alan Shearer

Recommended Posts

I'd never thought much of Shearer up until recently. He was a great centre-forward and all that but watching him on television sprouting platitudes somehow made that all seem so distant. When you are the inane, boring one in a studio with Lineker, Hansen and Lawerson it doesn't say a whole lot for your analytic abilities.


But since he's taken the Newcastle job, my opinion has changed. He's spoken with intelligence, insight and passion. He's been honest in his assessment of the players, owners and his own performance. And throughout he has demonstrated an understanding of the importance of having a set of values in any club. He may not be a great manger, but he has shown the character of a good football man.
