Premier League Hall of Famer, record goal scorer and former England captain… Alan Shearer is an all round legend of the game, and it was a pleasure welcoming him as the latest guest on the SoccerBible Podcast.

Few names in English football resonate quite as well as that of Alan Shearer. For a certain generation, any great playground volley had to be accompanied by screaming the England striker’s name at the top of your voice: “SHEARER!!!” One minuscule part of a lasting legacy left in the game, and one that continues through his punditry today. He’s a man that epitomises the Premier League – a fact that was recognised as he became the first inductee into the Hall of Fame alongside Thierry Henry back in April 2021.

In every sense he’s a great of the game, and now he pulls up a pew as the latest guest on the SoccerBible podcast, in a week where the Premier League celebrates its 30th anniversary. Join us as we go waltzing down memory lane, running through the moments that stand out for him, from humble beginnings to breaking records. Yep, there's few who have given the game – and in turn us, the audience and fans – so many experiences. What a man.

Kevin Keegan was my hero growing up, so I wanted to be him in the playground. I never quite had the curly perm, but I always wanted to be Keegan."

I’ve been a lucky lad. I’ve lived my dream. I did it my way I guess, in terms of where I wanted to go and how I did it, going to Blackburn and winning the Premier League then going to Newcastle, my club, and breaking the goal scoring record there."
