We fear no-one - Shearer -

WE FEAR NO-ONE - Shearer -

"Newcastle captain Alan Shearer believes his side 'can beat anyone', following their convincing 4-0 UEFA Cup win over Olympiacos at St James' Park."

Woo-hoo! Newcastle have finally come right this season, and seem to be unstoppable at the moment. Alan Shearer's been playing some right blinders recently, with the help of Keiron Dyer, who's come right after a pretty dodgy patch...

"Newcastle manager Graeme Souness may consider handing Kieron Dyer a regular striking role after watching him help dump Olympiakos out of the UEFA Cup.

The England midfielder partnered Alan Shearer in attack after Patrick Kluivert and Shola Ameobi were ruled out through injury. And he turned in an excellent individual display, scoring the opening goal with a cheeky backheel, as Newcastle won 4-0 to overwhelm the Greeks 7-1 on aggregate.

Shearer scored twice to move within nine goals of Jackie Milburn's club record of 200.

Dyer's performance capped a remarkable turn-around for a player who looked to have no future at St James' Park a few months ago."
