The most expensive player in the world before Ronaldo's move to Internazionale, Shearer move home to Tyneside from Balckburn Rovers for &pound15m on the eve of the 1996-97 season and took his place in Newcastle United's Hall of No.9 Legends even before he had kicked a ball. 28 goals in 39 appearances for United in 1996-97 did nothing to diminish his reputation as one of the world's finest goalscorers, and but for two injury lay-offs, he would very probably have extended his unique record of scoring 30 Premier League goals in three successive seasons. However, a afinal total of 25 in just 31 League games speaks for itself. England captain, Alan earned the nickname of 'The Colossus of Katowice' for his magnificent scoring performance in the 2-0 World Cup Qualifying defeat of Poland in May 1997.
