From Football 365...
We speculate (make up) what Shearer might say on various subjects...
Shearer on Libya: "It looks bad, what he's done, but Gaddafi's not that sort of player."
Shearer on the crisis in the Eurozone: "The Greek lads will have to be disappointed with that. For me, the Euro has gone down far too easily there. The foreigners have brought that into our game, though."
Shearer on the riots: "Obviously nobody wants their livelihood destroyed in a fire, but then he clearly raised his hands there and the rules are very clear on that."
Shearer on William marrying Kate: "I know some people say inherited privilege is fundamentally wrong but you've got to say, at the end of the day, the boy done good and let's face it, you never back against the Germans."
Shearer on the Syrian crisis: "Yeah, this Syrian lad is a new one on me; Bashar al-Assad they call him. I've never heard of him but they reckon he'll be out of the door soon enough. you can't govern a country when you've lost the dressing room."
Shearer on phone hacking: "For me, it's literally the worst thing you can do is hacking, except spitting, which is literally the worst thing you can do."
Shearer on the Middle East: "The Palestinians are tough to beat away from home."
Shearer on President Obama's chances of re-election: "I never make predictions and I never will but as we used to say at Blackburn, you never win anything without creosoting a fence and I think he knows that himself by the look on his face."
Shearer on attractive girls getting their A-Level results: "The young lady's done magnificent, and the headlines write themselves."
Shearer on the stock market crash: "For me, he's left his FTSE in there, and you just can't do that - not at this level."
