Why did we choose Alan Shearer for a print?
Not only was Alan Shearer an iconic player who holds the Premier League goal scoring record. He had a trademark celebration where he held his arm in the air which made him instantly recognizable.
Shearer became worshiped by the Toon faithful at Newcastle United. He stayed there out of devotion to the club he loved and fans, when he could have made a bigger move to one of the top clubs in Europe. That deserves praise in itself.
White silhouette on a black background is perfect to match Alan Shearer's beloved Newcastle colours. Making him stand out in English and Newcastle United footballing history with "There's only one Alan Shearer" being sung from the terraces at St James Park.
