On Thursday 9 February 2006, just five days after he broke Jackie Milburn's goal scoring record for Newcastle, Alan Shearer came into our BBC Radio Newcastle studios to answer YOUR questions.
The phone lines, texts, and emails came flooding in, as hundreds of fans posed their questions to the Magpie Captain.
The show could have gone on all night, but we only had an hour. And you can listen to the whole interview right here!
He is a world class stricker in my opinion same that are defence let us down as we are very unconsistant team.
i think you are great in the matches but if bobby robson was back uyou would score alot more goals, and i hope you decome manager
you are world class
Shearer is a true legend shame he couldn't win anything at Newcastle but he will avenge that when he is our manger and wins us a trophy!
Ihave been a fan of newcastle united since i was little and shearer's record i was so pleased that he beat jackie milburns record which was 200 but shearer's was 201 yes well done alan.And i will always support newcastle united even with out shearer.But im sorry but my best player is Scott parker as wll as shearer.
Shearer is the best, ever. The geordies will miss him
i think alan is the best english forward in the last 20 yrs
think its great but its time for him to take a back seat and let some of the younger players come on
He is THE legend on Tyneside. I'm so proud that a Geordie broke Wor Jackie's amazing landmark, but so frustrated we couldn't bring him the trophies he deserved. He didn't win any silverware but he has won our hearts, loyalty and respect, and of course become a true part of our history. Cheers Al, for everything.
shearer is the best thing to happen to newcastle and its been an honour 2watch him all these years. gareth,ireland.
Only three words to describe the geordie legend. SIMPLY THE BEST!
all this fuss about Big AL, give Len White the credit a true footballing god deserves ....
I think Shearer is the best player in his own way its sad to see him leave st james park at the end of the season good luke in the future x
it wasnt until recently tht i got into footy...shearer playin great 4 newcastle being th reason i got into it and thts saying something
Shearer FOREVER! Back to the national team !!!!!
OMONYI A.J. WALE
ALAN IS A MAN WHO SHOULD NOT GROW OLD BCOS IS A DELIVERER OF HOPE

As a corporate ticket holder I was one of the privledged 55,000 that saw him break the record and he deserved it, what I cant understand is why wont play another season or 2, I would have liked to seen what he could of achieved with Michael owen fit this/next year?
hes not just the son of a sheet metal worker from gosforth-hes a legend!

i have been a fan of alan for years now i have been to every game in the last 5 years and i reckon he should play for a couple of years and when he reties he should go manager
IM FROM NEW ZEALAND! ONLY ONE LEGEND ONE GENIOUS ONE MACHINE ONE ULTIMATE PLAYER ALAN SHEARER!!!!!

mathew burton (non geordie) and craig kirtley (pro

Shearer is a ledgend. He should be knighted and is my hero! good luck on saturday.
its great to see that shearer bettered milburns goal record but that would be why they keep going in the first place to beat those records
Dave M West
Anyone who slates shearer in the slightest is wrong, there is some people saying the record is irrelevant WHAT ARE YOU ON ABOUT? this is about the history of newcastle, shearer is the best, he should still be playing for england, and anyone who disagrees is wrong. he can help usa win deserved trophys. Stay on shearer, you are the best!
Shearer is a legend, he wears a legends hat, and when he joined the geordies, he said i fancy that, he didn't sign for manure cos hes black n white, he signed for toon united cos were proper dynamite
S pecial H ero for E veryone A live, R eal A mazing R ecord
Well done Alan from a "Geordie Canadian" we will be all routing for you to bring the F.A cup home for 2006
SHEARER-LEGEND!! ENUFF SED X X X
How do you feel after geting 202 goals
i aws there it was a great moment for every one
i think alan shearer should stay another year to play with owen because when ever shearer is on the pitch it boost the team moral go up and what ever you say sherer is pure class
I was lucky enough to be there when Alan Shearer broke the record and it was a magical moment. Shearer will be missed by all at Newcastle but no doubt he will have more to do with the club.
NUFC FOR LIFE!!!!
HES faNTASTIC, amazing.. GOD ALIKE... WEL DONE ALAN. TEARS WILL BE RUNNIN DOWN MA FACE WEN IT COMES TO THE THAT LAST DAY U WEAR THT BLACK AND WHITE KIT.. YOU ARE MY HERO!!!!!!
alan you are a legend in turkey also we will all miss you
The greatest finisher the world has ever seen.
Geordie lad living in new orleans Alan packs more punch than Hurricane Katrina ever did i know i survived Katrina 2005
I think he one of are Best English centre forwards hes has score some outstanding goals.I would have like to have watch him score his 200th goal but i live to far away from Newcastle.
you are one of the best footy players in the world well done
Shearer wat a beaut
he is nice and a good footballer
it's a great one,alan is the best striker in the world that i have always supported.in every position he can net the ball.
alan shearer is a pure legend and he will all ways be rememberd by the fans
kelly and dave
we are both 5 and 3/4 we like football its exciting when they score a try!!! we are gettin married in the summer.
magpies best player, diehard fan for years
long before I was familliar with English league or any others I spotted Alan as a cut above the rest,a constant leader,not so flashy as some but a diligent hard working professional.
since da 2st time a saw shearer my hairs tingled and now he's goin there doin it again,he'll be missed 4eva and no 1 can replace him not evan da best strikers as commitment in football has gone,cheers all u'll never be forgotten
good going alan. happy for you!
I never saw Hughie Gallacher play but I saw the rest of the strikers in the poll. I agree withRay C, Len White was a little short to be a centre forward but was otherwise the best I've seen. I also think Jackie Milburn was ahead of Alan, although e would be my third choice.
what a legend! it will be a shame when he leaves
Alan Shearer = Legend
Im 6 and i like shearer. hes the best. my hero
ara y the next manij fNewcastle o no
shearer ur mint i was there wen you broke jacki milburns record well done!! x x
i are the big is newcastle fan and alan shearer is the best captain at the club
There are not enough superlatives to describe Shearer. He is a genius whos commitment to the club will never falter.
Alan Shearer has been really great for N.u.f.c. but the greatest centre forward since the war was undoubtedly Len White who had everything-- pace,skill,heading ability and scored 153 goals in 269 appearences.
he"s a great footballer !and he"s inspied me to show people what i can do. I LOVED FOOTBALLER and played the game since i was just 5 now am only 13 and playing with the ladies they said am too small for the age groups and its the leagus orders but i can train with them all thanks to alan shearer whos made me show people what i can do!
Im from bristol, but I have supported newcastle all my life, shearer is a grteat role model, and my favourite striker, the best england and newcastle have seen, thanks al!
Alan Shearer has been a great player at Newcastle, always trying his best to score the winning goal
I have known Alan Shearer as one of the best ever strikers newcastle has ever had, i have grown up to respect this man and yet i am only 16. He is my idol and i will miss him deeply when he leaves at the end of the season into retirement, i have always wanted to meet my idol and i guess that will never happen. no one could take his place, i hope he becomes the next manager of Newcastle United.
Alan Shearer the greatest player newcastle have ever had. Just wish he could play forever we will miss him.
ALAN ALAN ALAN ALAN ALAN ALAN ALAN SHEARER SHEARER SHEARER SHEARER SHEARER SHEARER LEGEND LEGEND
IM GUNA BE JUST LIKE YOU !
it is very good my king
this man is an inspiration to all footballers and all fans of related to the game. respect is all he will ever get.
hower big al bring the FA Cup home !!
The record is absolutely irrelevant. NUFC have won absolutely nothing while Sir Alan has amassed his millions, his media contracts, and the art of getting a whole club to revolve around his ego.
Philip `O Donnell
Next year can you help the lads at workington REDS in cumbria thanks ALAN.
alan your the greatest.
I think Alan has been fantastic but how many penalty goals were scored by Alan v Jackie ?
louis heasman [again]
shearer iz da best were d u gt tickets 4 testimonial i really want 2 go and no one can ever fill your boots
Pure class, magnificent and loyal. A pure geordie. An inspiration to us all.
Picture this, alan shearer leading out newcastle united at cardiff against man utd in the fa cup final. He scores a hat trick and toon win 4-0. Owen scores the other goal. The final whistle goes and goerdies all round the world salute alan shearer to the heart pumping music of local hero. My hairs are standing on end just thinking about it.
Thank you Alan for all the pleasure you have given me and all the fans, and thank you for being such a brilliant ambasador for the North East. The lack of silverware is not an issue, what you've done for us overall, and breaking Jackie's record is a much greater acheivement. You are ethched into the hearts and minds of all Geordies, be they football fans or not. The memory will not fade for a very long time. Howay the lads!
Well done Alan, thanks for the commitment. PS The quality of English on this page is abysmal.
an amazing player simply amazing player
a centre forward who has been the best in britain for the last decade.
fantastic hes an amazin player, but he should leave when hes good, i hope he scores more though!
SHEARER IS A LEGEND WHAT A RECORD HE HAS BEATEN, HES QUALITY AND HE'LL STILL BANG IN THE GOALS GO ONE SHEARER SON AND PLEASE STAY ON FOR AMOTHER YEAR
i knew football by alan shearer and i khink he was the best football player in the world
St James Park is our church SHEARER is our God
Alan Shearer is an inspiration on and off the pitch to all wanna-be footballers. We need to stop paying crazy sums to foreign players and concentrate on our own grassroot players. Well done Alan, 100% Geordie, 100% Goalscorer.
toon toon shearers army toon toon shearers army thank you LEGEND
Michael Pinchen Jr
Alan I knew you would break the record,you deserved it!!! Let's push forward and try and win the FA Cup for you in your last season!! Bring on Chelsea!!
amazing. it's not often you get someone scoring two hundred goals for their club. Easily considered to be one of the best strikers england and newcastle have known
I reckon Shearer is good but he does get a bit carried away with his tackles. Also, why did he leave international football? To win the...premier league....champions league..uefa cup..interto..no, to...ill leave that to you. I'm not criticing his footballing abilities (or whats left of them), I think he should retire now (quit while newcastle can still win matches) rather than trying half of another season in division 1. I admire the nufc the most because they always cheer on newcastle and I wonder how long that is going to last.
elly of gossy
i used to play football with alan when down broadway west.if he still remembers me,its probibly the lump on his chin.i always knew he,d be great.god speed,thank for the memories,your a legend..

top man hope he brings home the F A Cup for the toon now that would be great for us and shearer
I think it was a great goal to mark his 200th Goal. It's just a shame he is retiring at the end of this season but im sure another fantastic player will fill his boots hopefully even though no one can match the quality of Alan Shearer.
