Must see video as Alan Shearer celebrates Newcastle 2 Manchester City 1 winner!

2 years ago

All those days and night Alan Shearer spends sticking up for Newcastle United.

The NUFC  legend doing his media work surrounded by former players and presenters with allegiances to clubs who win things, or at east threaten to win stuff.

Tuesday night was Alan Shearer’s though.

Newcastle falling behind after only 24 seconds, it looked a case of only how many?

Rafa Benitez had his players stick in though, give Man City very few chances, whilst having  the odd decent situation of their own.

Then what is this…Salomon Rondon equalises on 66 minutes.

Unbelievable, Fernandinho brings down Longstaff as Newcastle are brave and press, penalty!

Some quite feeble playacting from Ederson delays the spot-kick for a couple of minutes.

Up steps Matt Ritchie though and BANG!

Back of the net.

What a massive result for Newcastle United and just watch Alan Shearer celebrate!
