The failed transfer of Alan Shearer to Manchester United will always come across as a matter of ‘what might have been’ for both parties. After all, Shearer was at that one of the best strikers in the world and Manchester United, the dominant force in English football.
It is then understandable that there still remains a bitterness on part of some United fans towards Shearer who turned down the club not once but twice. This was precisely the case most recently with a United fan account getting at Shearer with regards to Man Utd’s 6-2 trashing of Newcastle 13 years back.
What was unexpected though was that the Newcastle legend himself responding to the jibe aimed at him albeit with a touch of the ruthlessness he so often displayed during his playing career.
Shearer apparently shut the United fan up for good with an implacable reply reminding the fan that the incident was 13 years ago; a high time to let it go.
