Newcastle icon Alan Shearer is first and foremost a Newcastle fan through and through – just like the rest of us.
The only difference is that Alan just happened to be one of the best strikers England has ever produced and his 260 goals in the Premier League is both astonishing and outstanding.
So that’s the only difference.
Alan Shearer looks happy – you would think we were 4th in the Premier League or something
And Alan is thinking, with Newcastle amazingly in 4th place in the league table and above teams like Arsenal and Liverpool like the old days, that the season would end now.

But you know, while most of those (expert?) pundits think we will slip down the league table when we meet some of the class teams of the division, we would never bet against Rafa Benitez,
He keeps the players’ feet firmly on the ground and wants 3 points from every game.
Rafa and his squad could shock the lot of us this season.
And if we do finish in a good position in the league table then owner Mike Ashley must give him every last penny the club has next summer to spend in the transfer window.
We remember somebody saying that last May.
