After the travelling Red Devils chose to chant “cheer up Alan Shearer” all night in the gods at St James’ Park, the former NUFC number 9 has hit back at Man Utd fans in brilliant fashion on Twitter.
Quite why they are so obsessed with Shearer so many years later, despite all the trophies they have won, is baffling.
I was at the game and the Man Utd fans lacked class. Plenty made the trip, but it’s often a sign that you don’t have many decent chants when most of them are just ripping into opposition and club legends who turned you down. I don’t think many would’ve made the trip a few weeks ago when it wasn’t going their way…
Newcastle fans were quick to respond on twitter, with a great example below:
Shearer has talked on numerous occasions about how signing for Newcastle United was his best decision and one he wouldn’t change, despite not adding to his Premier League medal from his Blackburn days during his time on Tyneside.
Breaking the all time goal scoring record and winning the adulation of his hometown was more important for Shearer – something Man Utd fans clearly don’t understand, STILL.
