Anyone watch this last night?
I had a lump in my throat and a tear in my eye.
*please be gentle with me.
i'll give you a good pasting if i ever meet you!!
not the end though. Did he come on in the end? Also, did Les Ferdinand come on? You guys up in Toonland love him, was good to see a sell out for him, do you think they will build a statue?
he 'kinda' scored a goal (well, i think they let him score it anyway). It took a deflection.
Shearer came on in the 93min and scored a pen.
england ladies v hungary ladies.
We paid 1.75 mil for Adam Virgo!!!
What a night. The king is dead. Long live the king. Oh wait.........
he's not dead, he's just retired. Quite different.
if you were a toon fan you'd understand :(
I respect Shearer a lot though, so I'm glad it was a nice occasion.
Shame he doesn't have more medals in his collection really.
on the 'laptop' and thought it was a touching send off even though he nothing to say than "score a goal in the number 9 shirt" - the best part fo the evening was in interview with Gazza and trying to work out how much he'd had to drink
we should have taken shearer to this years world cup, if he was fit. just imagine shearer coming on at the end of a match, when all the defenders are tired.
Ball bobbled in area, shearer there, you know where it would end up.
near shearer. told old/fat/injured
he was always a cheat
OWN GOAL. He'd be facing the wrong way because he's old and doesn't know what's going on.
The only way Shearer would do any good in the World Cup would be if it was a big fix............ just like last night.
it was a T.E.S.T.I.M.O.N.I.A.L
i think he would do the business in the world cup.
experience Vs Walcott.
he would get eaten alive at the World Cup.
If the crowd got up on their feet, scarves aloft, like they did last night at every home match, we'd be unbeatable.
It may have been a testimonial match but what's the point in even having it if it's going to be a joke?
It's like going to see a band play and they are lip syncing over a backing track. You wouldn't be too happy with that?
Anyway, less of that. It will be sad to see him go.
