Alan Shearer Ruthlessly Slams Newspaper’s Childish Taunt

We hold grudges for far too long in life and it’s always good to move on and get past them – it also shows some maturity.

Having said that it happens to be 13 years ago today the Red Devils (rather luckily) hammered Newcastle 6-2 at St. James Park.

And the Manchester Evening News has used the anniversary to take a dig at Alan Shearer, who turned down Manchester United – not once – but twice.

They have never forgotten that or forgiven him for that.

Alan Shearer – Newcastle United striker
Looks like he just scored against the Red Devils

Alan Shearer reacted to the taunt in the best way imaginable.

    Manure – the once well respected even famous club now reduced to Moanrinio, no Champions League and bickering about missing out on signing Shearer. What a classless bunch.

    Don’t get me wrong on laschelles he can certainly improve but at the minute he’s a bag of nerves when the ball comes near him. Like dummetts his first instinct is to go long as well.

    Benteke left Liverpool because he doesn’t press the way klopp wants his forwards to do. Same reason sturridge is overlooked when fit.

    As for Gayle, I wouldn’t expect any fireworks from him next season, I’d be disappointed if he was leading our front line next season

    Chron are reporting that Mitro will start as a lone striker on Friday. How they know this when Rafa probs hasn’t even decided this yet is beyond me. Their headline should read Mitro likely to start on Friday. The way Leeds play at the minute I would go with another option as they will be very physical with Mitro, and he tends to retaliate. I would bench him till the last 20 mins myself, but that’s just me.

    I may be wrong, but I’ve felt that ManU became an arrogant club when Ferguson got it on the road to success. In fairness, they won lots of trophies – and fair weather fans on the back of that; just as Citeh, Chelski and until Rafa left, Liverpool have.

    There’s no need for ManU’s arrogance and in Mourinho, they’ve got another Ferguson who thought he was untouchable and above everything and anyone. They’ll get their comeuppance.

    It’s such a pity that Keegan was out psyched by Ferguson. Had we won the Prem that year would’ve led to greater things under Keegan and really rubbed Ferguson’s nose in his own dirt.

    However, we didn’t and went from bad to worse (Bobby Robson’s sacking included). But now we have a world-class manager in Rafa and our future and his, is once again in the hands of our erstwhile owner. Let’s hope Ashlehy has the decency to talk with Rafa and do everything possible to ensure he understands and is prepared to work along with Ashley’s financial thinking in regard to Newcastle United. Ashley should also ensure on-going dialogue between everyone concerned with the high-level management of the Club. In my humble opinion, Carr should not be classed as high-level management and confined to doing his job – scouting players for Rafa’s final consideration – severing the link between Carr and Ashley.

    We can but hope.

    If Mitro does start as lone striker, Leeds players will be told to wind him up with a view to a yellow or two. Can Mitro be trusted to last 90 minutes? I doubt it and so does Rafa!

    It wasn’t KK being wound up by Fergie that caused our demise. It was already over more or less and Fergie suggested Leeds had let us win which Keegan objected to but in reality Man U only had to draw with Middlesbrough to clinch the title.
    The defining game that season was them beating us 1-0 at sjp when we absolutely battered them, schmeichel was mom and freakin cantons sneaked a goal.
    It still hurts me after 20 years and KK was never the same but we were desperately unlucky!
