Lost his wife a while ago, had some botched cosmetic surgery ages ago and she wasn't very well at all for a long time before she died.

My nan was in the bed next to her in Blackpool (I think) ages ago and my mum used to speak to him and his wife a lot, from what I heard they were both really nice people and he was with her most of the time.

Pretty sure it was a long time between her falling ill initially and then passing, it probably took it out of him.

Losing the cup final to Everton a week later was also a kick in the gonads. Could have had 3 doubles in 3 seasons.

This has been an excellent show so far. The most detailed documentary on the early years of the Premier League I've ever seen. Very well made.

Eric.
Shearer was a f***ing greedy little shite as well wasn't he. Never had the balls to step up and play for a proper big club. Was content to go to whoever dangled the most money in front of him.
