Shearer Training Session With 7500 Fans!

7500 fans turned up for Newcastle's training session at St James' Park yesterday.

Alan Shearer trained with the team and drew the loudest cheer when he bagged a goal in a 5 a side game.

He had lost none of his predatory instincts in front of goal and makes me wonder if he should have been signed as a player manager instead..

“I said to the boys, ‘Where else would you get thousands of fans turning up to watch training when the team is third bottom?’ It’s unique and you have got to appreciate it, and the players loved it. It was a good workout and we all enjoyed it.” - Alan Shearer.
