Alan Shearer Video Special – Fifteen Years Ago Today

8 years ago

I don’t know what were you doing fifteen years ago but I know where I was, down at Old Trafford watching Alan Shearer blast Newcastle United another step closer to glory.

The occasion was the 1999 FA Cup semi-final, the home of Manchester United bouncing as it reached the final minutes with Newcastle hanging on grimly to a one nil Alan Shearer lead.

At last Newcastle get hold of the ball, Shearer himself finds Silvio Maric in space on the left and puts the ball in his direction, out of danger.

Maric doesn’t do a great deal (no surprise to those of you who saw him play) and simply rolls the ball back across to Alan Shearer who hits this beauty.

We may have fallen at the final hurdle but nobody can take away memories like this one.

Enjoy and remember.
