"I've been a very lucky lad. I've lived my dream, I've played centre-forward for Newcastle United. I've got the club's goal-scoring record...I've played for the Geordie fans, which is one of the greatest things anyone can ever do."
The greatest goalscorer in the history of the Premiership realised his boyhood dream when he signed for Newcastle United in the summer of 1996 for a world record 15 million transfer fee. Over 15,000 ecstatic fans massed outside St. James's Park as "Shearer's Coming Home" was proudly sung across Tyneside. Big Al promised goals in his beloved black and white stripes - and he certainly delivered...from opening his account on his home debut against Wimbledon to signing off with a perfect penalty against arch-rivals Sunderland in a 4-1 win at the Stadium of Light ten years later.
Shearer the Legend charts the glorious Gallowgate career of the Geordie hero and features every one of his record-breaking tally of 206 goals for the Magpies...
Shearer the Legend reflects on a decade of goals, goals, goals and Shearer himself talks exclusively about his football life and looks back on Ten great years.
"Same Old Shearer..Always Scoring!"
