Growing up with parents who don't really like football, Euro 96 was my introduction and I caught the bug. Absolutely loved it. Cheering on England, with Shearer as the hero. Then a few weeks later he signs for Newcastle! I thought football would always be this easy and have been comprehensively proved wrong ever since :lol:


So yeah, definitely Shearer for me.
