Alan Shearer’s Bronze Statue – Pictures


A statue of Newcastle’s great striker Alan Shearer has been completed in honor of the former Southampton, Blackburn and Newcastle United and England international.

The statue was paid for by former Chairman Freddy Shepherd and it was made in China and will be coming to Newcastle in late August.

It looks very good to us.

    Hello, long time reader first time poster.

    I think the thauvin deal isn’t a bad one as long as it isn’t the end of the spending, we need at least one more defender in this window.

    I’m surprised so many people on this blog seem to think that it is a central defender that we need so desperately when haidara hasn’t looked at all convincing, I’m not writing him off he just really isn’t ready to relied on as the number one left back and neither is dummett who looked better in the centre in my opinion. Colo has had a lot of unfair criticism and he’s still a decent player and our best centre back. With janmaat sending off its become obvious that we have absolutely no cover for his position so we need another right back also. Ideally we would sign a first time left back a new centre back and a young right back. I can’t see that happening so a left back would be my first choice.

    We’ve needed a winger for years so if thauvin is an out and out wide player I’d be happy with that.

    Also does anyone know where Perez is going to fit in? He was probably our best player going forward in a poor side with tactics that didn’t suit his strengths at all, he’s 22 it’s not like he’s 18, I think he should be in the team, just trying to figure out where. Maybe in the number 10 role with Gini dropping deeper playing box to box and helping link defense to attack?

    According to the German press the Toon has not given up on Joel Matip who only has 10 months left on his contract and is being somewhat coy with Schalke.

    Freddy Sheppard may have paid for that, but the question has to be asked.

    How much did he pay?

    (Hope he kept the receipt)

    Nice thought, the statue, but the finger kinda spoils it for me. Maybe he did raise the finger and somehow I missed it every time? Or perhaps it’s a hidden message for Ashley? Wrong finger though. 😉

    Should have looked at a couple of photos not just one before they went ahead with it. I’d rather have him striking that volley against Everton.

    In fairness, bronze isn’t the ideal media for catching a likeness without spending too much on it. Maybe that’s the reason?

    Jib probably celebrated that way about five times his whole career haha

    It was always the hand and everyone knows it. Apart from the sculpture maker obviously.
