Even for his eight-game spell as manager of Newcastle, Derek Llambias said: "He was constantly asking his coaching staff for ideas", because it seems he had none of his own.
Newcastle website Shiteseats have agreed (as we all do) that Shearer is "a legend" for his performances ON the field, but he should stand up and be counted OFF it.
Shiteseats: "The one show that should be one of the ‘must-watch’ programs on TV has become increasingly harder and harder to watch.
"Watching Lineker, Hansen and Lawrenson sitting on those chairs looking gleefully smug on their hefty paypackets, week in week out, offering little or no opinion on the game that’s just been on just boils my f***** piss.
"The format has become stale, the presenters dull, opinions from ex-players barely even associated with anything other than arse licking Liverpool, Man U or fence-sitting until it ends up splintering his arse (Shearer).
"You’re a legend Alan, but howay man, HAVE A F****** OPINION FOR ONCE!
"Is it wrong that I actually preferred Adrian Chiles?
"Is this really what it’s came to?
"Bloody Adrian Chiles?
"May Shola have mercy on us all."
