If you ask footballers to pick out the player they most admire, so many of them will pick Paul Scholes. His passing and shooting is of the highest level and he’s the most consistent and naturally gifted player we’ve had for a long, long time.

By Anonym 14 Sep

By Anonym 15 Sep

Alan Shearer

There is another side to me which people don't often see, but it's very hard for me to show that. When I do interviews, I'm talking to people I don't know and when you speak to a stranger you don't open up, do you? In my position, people are always looking for something to say about me. And anything I do say, given half-a-chance they'll turn it round into something spectacular so I've got to be very careful. That's why it's only my friends and family who know the real me. Now my wife, Lainya, she could tell you a few stories.

By Anonym 14 Sep

Alan Shearer

People say he doesn't score a lot of goals with his head, but does he really have to with the ability he has in his feet? He makes spectacular goals look easy. His technique is fantastic.  (on Thierry Henry)

By Anonym 13 Sep

Alan Shearer

Any change of my style, the way I've played for 10 years, will not be a drastic one. Yes, I've always given as good as I've got; as a forward you have to do that because, if you don't look after yourself, you might find yourself being thrown in a hole and buried.

By Anonym 14 Sep

Alan Shearer

People are very proud of Newcastle, very proud to come from here. This is a working class City and they just want to enjoy themselves and live life to the full. They work all week, pick their wages up at the end of the week and they spend it over a weekend by having a good time and watching the football. That's our life.

By Anonym 14 Sep

Alan Shearer

One accusation you can't throw at me is that I've always done my best.

By Anonym 14 Sep

Alan Shearer

By Anonym 13 Sep

Alan Shearer

For me, Paul Scholes has been the best midfield player in the Premier League. By a mile. He has the lot. He scores and creates goals, he can pass the ball, he can head it, and rounds all this off with a competitive streak.

By Anonym 14 Sep

Alan Shearer

I want to be around when Newcastle win a trophy because I want to see this place lift off. It will be one hell of a party for a long time.

By Anonym 13 Sep

Alan Shearer

By Anonym 14 Sep

By Anonym 14 Sep

Alan Shearer

I would play in any number shirt for Newcastle United, but the No 9 at Newcastle is something very special and I've always wanted to wear it. I mentioned it to the manager, he mentioned it to Les and Les has been very kind and given it to me.

By Anonym 13 Sep

Alan Shearer

Basically, a manager is a father figure to 20 or 25 blokes. It's about trying to get the best out of them and creating team spirit.

By Anonym 15 Sep

Alan Shearer

You should always give 100%. If you do that then no-one can ask any more of you. Someone once said to me when I was a kid: 'If you're asked to do ten sprints, by all means do 11 but never do nine because you're only cheating yourself'.

By Anonym 14 Sep

Alan Shearer

Newcastle fans never cease to amaze me. If there was a trophy for best supporters this lot would win it hands down every year.

By Anonym 14 Sep

Alan Shearer

I've got a great life that I really enjoy. But there is something chewing at me inside: that adrenaline rush from football, I miss that.

By Anonym 15 Sep

Alan Shearer

The managers are getting paid very well by their respective clubs to do a job for their clubs not the country they are working in.

By Anonym 13 Sep

Alan Shearer

It does not bother me that some say I'm dull and boring because the people that do know me will tell you a different story. It is very difficult to be open with people you don't know. There is nothing I can do about the fact that the real me does not get across and it is probably difficult to know the real me.

By Anonym 14 Sep

Alan Shearer

The FA Cup means a lot. There is a real passion here for the competition which you don't get elsewhere. It's a love affair. It's part and parcel of living up here. People might think I'm daft, but I'm not wrong; I'd rather win the Cup than the League.

By Anonym 15 Sep

Alan Shearer

You only get one chance of an England debut.

By Anonym 13 Sep

By Anonym 13 Sep

Alan Shearer

If people are going to write bad things about me because it makes news, I can brush it aside because I've had this for 10 years. I'm big enough and strong enough to cope with it. It's what comes with being Alan Shearer.

By Anonym 15 Sep

Alan Shearer

There's no way the future's over for Martin Keown, Tony Adams or David Seaman.

By Anonym 13 Sep

Alan Shearer

I have always said that the best feeling in the world is scoring a goal. Don't tell my missus that, but it is. When that ball hits the back of the net, it is fantastic.

By Anonym 15 Sep

Alan Shearer

When I was a young boy I wanted to play for Newcastle United, I wanted to wear the number nine shirt and I wanted to score goals at St James' Park. I've lived my dream and I realise how lucky I've been to have done that.
