Alan Shearer made every Newcastle fan very happy when he signed for the club in 1996.
What he then contributed in the next 10 years was beyond anybody’s expectations.
Not just the goals but his all round dedication to the cause, even cutting his England career short to give everything to the black and white cause.
Now Alan Shearer has made one group of Newcastle United fans very happy.
Evgeny Kolbrodov is a founding member of the Moscow Mags, bringing Newcastle United fans together to support the team from afar.
With Russia hosting the World Cup and Alan Shearer a key member of the BBC team, the Moscow Mags were on a mission.
Desperate not to waste this chance, they have pursued (respectfully) the NUFC legend, trying to get a meeting with him.
Finally they got their reward and here you can see just how much it meant to Evgeny Kolobrodov and his fellow Moscow Mags.

“It was one of the greatest 10 minutes ever in our lives.
“Alan is a top man. Great man.
“He was so kind to us.
“Maybe it was the best day in our lives.
“First and the most reason why our fans from Russia and the Ukraine fall in love with Newcastle was Alan Shearer and it’s no doubt, absolutely no doubt.
“Black and white stripes, amazing St James Park, Kevin Keegan, Bobby Robson, but first – Alan Shearer.
“Amazing, amazing player.”
