From Euro 96 to the Champions' League
As the 1995/96 Premier season came to a close, speculation about which club Alan Shearer would be playing for reached fever pitch. Euro 96 elevated the celebrated centre forward to even greater heights and in one of the most dramatic off field events in the history of the game Shearer became the world's most expensive footballer when he signed for Newcastle United.
In this very personal and revealing film Alan Shearer reflects on his first season at Newcastle and what has been, by any standards, an extraordinary year in the life of a footballer.
Shearer talks us through his goals, his greatest moments and the importance of achieving not one but two of his lifetime's ambitions - to wear the number 9 shirt of Newcastle United and to captain his national side.
