Alan Shearer Shows His Class – As Always

7 years ago

While his appearances on Match Of The Day attract a wide spectrum of views, when it comes to the important stuff, Alan Shearer always delivers when it comes to Newcastle United.

The legendary number nine has a massive advantage over almost any other past Newcastle stars, when it comes to understanding the minds of United fans, and that is because he is one of us.

Speaking to the Sunday Sun, Barry Sweeney who is the father of Ukrainian air crash victim Liam Sweeney had this to say ;

“When we opened the letter it said among other things, ‘We come from the same sort of family and we support the same team, these words come from the heart’.

“The letter was signed ‘Alan Shearer’.

“Alan Pardew’s also sent nice messages to our family and we have been humbled by all the support we have received.

“I have not been able to thank everybody personally because I have spoken to so many people, but I want everybody to know how grateful we are.

“When I go to our local Morrisons where Liam used to work, I find myself hugging people who are in tears and not the other way around – he was a really well liked lad and loyal toon fan.”
