Shearer Aiming To Lose 'Boring' Tag?

Alan Shearer, has battled with a 'boring' reputation throughout his footballing life. Who can forget former chairman Freddy Shepherd's 'Mary Poppins' remark in the national press? The legendary striker even celebrated pretty much every one of his 409 career goals with the same one-handed salute to the crowd.

Well, the times are-a-changing. The new Newcastle United boss is clearly aiming to ditch the dull image. "How?" We hear you ask. Well guess what? The Geordie gaffer showed his eye for fashion by wearing a skinny tie for his side's Premier League clash with Stoke City last weekend.

Shearer, who is in charge of Newcastle until the end of the season, chose a modest patterned grey skinny tie for his second game at the helm. Oh yes, Alan Shearer is with it. Boring? We do not think so. The only thing we can suggest for Shearer to heighten his street cred further is to wear one of our bright lime green skinny ties.
