Shearer was a quality footballer yes, I remember when he was at Blackburn & there was talk of him going to United & he said he's going to Newcastle because 'They're the team that's going places.'
Well how wrong was he? But none the less, he's a Geordie through & through & off he went to Newcastle. He banged in 260 odd goals yes, a phenomenal stat & I really can't see Rooney topping it, nahh, he's more of an attacking midfielder than a striker now & that position suits him. For the record as a die hard United fan I say sell him because he's acting like a baby. (AGAIN)
That record will be beaten of course, because records are made to be broken as the old saying goes, but I'd give it a good few years.
