Newcastle's number 9 shirt!!!

Mention the number 9 of Newcastle United and Alan Shearer - the current inhabitant of the shirt - will come to mind. And with good reason too. Shearer is a true Toon legend who many would argue as being numerous uno.

 

However there is perhaps an even bigger legend at Newcastle than the great man himself. A legend that has always been with the club and always will, in part thanks to the efforts of Big Al among others. A legend that makes legends such as Shearer.

 

Who is this legend? The number 9 shirt of course!

 

Is there any other club in England or indeed the world who can boast of having such a distinctive shirt? Arguably there is no other club who can boast of having had so many great players playing in just the one shirt. Or a club who embrace a number such as we do with the number 9 from fans to players alike?

 

In world football the great duo of Pele and Maradona have made the number 10 shirt a distinctive one while at Manchester United George Best and David Beckham of late have both made the number 7 shirt a distinctive one for them. All revered numbers in world football, but none match the number 9 shirt of Newcastle United.

 

For some of the world's best goalscorers have graced it and will continue to grace it. Mention the number 9 of Newcastle United and it reads: Skill, pace, flair, power, strength, bravery, technique, goals, goals, goals and more goals. And that is why it's a special shirt with a tradition as long and proud as the club itself.

 

Historically and consistently we have been honoured to have had strikers with those great qualities wearing the number 9 shirt of NUFC and here we pay homage to the shirt of legends and the goalscorers who have worn it with distinction throughout the years.

 

:mellow::dunno::D:D:D

 

I particularly like the bit where it says Pele and Maradona's number 10 shirt, and Beckham and Best's number 7 shirt does not match your number 9 shirt

 

If this isn't deluded, I don't know what is!

:mellow: Seriously, you're reading an NUFC article from at least five years ago?

 

To be fair I just pulled it from RTG

 

Does anyone actually agree that your number 9 shirt is more famous than pele's number 10 or beckham's number 7?

 

surely you should be comparing either Shearers number 9 with Peles 10 and Beckhams 7 or NUFCs 9 with brazils 10 and Man Us 7

 

bit subtle for you I understand but still...

If anyone walks around Milan in a A.C shirt with number 3 or 6 on and the shirt has anything but Maldini or Baresi on there's bother!

 

 

For the record if Maldini's sons make it to the Milan's first team they will bring the #3 out of retirement.

To be fair to the man he did get quite a few reactions. People barking about at how "pathetic" he is is his wumery working. He's bringing them down to his level. Well done Felch.

Genuine question for the mackems; is there a shirt that you hold dear at sunderland? As was mentioned, Man U's No7, Brazil's 10, Argentina's 10.

 

It's noteworthy that some clubs/teams have these "special" shirts and others don't

Kevin, some people have 'wummery' down to an art. Feltch is not one of these people & neither are you.

 

You seem to adopting the CT trademarked alternate view...

These teams tend to have been involved in european competition, related to exciting football or have finished in the top 10 in their respective league more than 3/4 times in the last 50 years.

 

They aren't non entities like Sunderland.
