Shearer No Soft Touch Anymore

Shearer No Soft Touch Anymore

Ex-Newcastle captain Alan Shearer said he would 'open up more' on TV now that he has retired from playing.

And he certainly went for the juggular on Monday evening when he said on BBC TV that Switzerland will 'kill football' the way they hardly crossed their own half-way line in the World Cup against Ukraine. 'Thank God that's finished - I feel like I've been here for 10 years,' said the Toon legend.

Shearer: 'Both teams are content to sit back, sit deep and get everyone behind the ball. Ukraine tried a little bit but Switzerland will kill football if they play like this.'

Switzerland failed - or even attempt - to score in 126 minutes of play, and couldn't even find the net in a penalty shootout!

Think the England job would give him much needed experience. Would love to see him and Pearce as McLarens assistants
