  • I made no secret of the fact I'd love to stay in football and to do that, you need badges. I'm starting them and that's the next step for me - to continue this next season.

  • Yes, I do like to be in control. I do like everything to be laid out, to know what I'm doing. I'm very impatient. I like things done yesterday, which is probably a fault of mine. I like things to be neat and tidy and organised. I say what I want and show what I want and I keep things private.

  • There is another side to me which people don't often see, but it's very hard for me to show that. When I do interviews, I'm talking to people I don't know and when you speak to a stranger you don't open up, do you? In my position, people are always looking for something to say about me. And anything I do say, given half-a-chance they'll turn it round into something spectacular so I've got to be very careful. That's why it's only my friends and family who know the real me. Now my wife, Lainya, she could tell you a few stories.

  • If people are going to write bad things about me because it makes news, I can brush it aside because I've had this for 10 years. I'm big enough and strong enough to cope with it. It's what comes with being Alan Shearer.

  • I have always said that the best feeling in the world is scoring a goal. Don't tell my missus that, but it is. When that ball hits the back of the net, it is fantastic.

  • It does not bother me that some say I'm dull and boring because the people that do know me will tell you a different story. It is very difficult to be open with people you don't know. There is nothing I can do about the fact that the real me does not get across and it is probably difficult to know the real me.

  • You should always give 100%. If you do that then no-one can ask any more of you. Someone once said to me when I was a kid: 'If you're asked to do ten sprints, by all means do 11 but never do nine because you're only cheating yourself'.

  • Defeat is not worth thinking about.

  • You have to go out onto the pitch feeling good about yourself. That can give you that extra 30 per cent.

  • First is first. That's the way I was brought up. Second or third are nowhere.

  • Nothing's black or white in our country - you're either brilliant or you're hopeless

  • Andy Carroll will cause anyone problems and I don't see a problem in that

  • When I was a young boy I wanted to play for Newcastle United, I wanted to wear the number nine shirt and I wanted to score goals at St James' Park. I've lived my dream and I realise how lucky I've been to have done that.

  • The FA Cup means a lot. There is a real passion here for the competition which you don't get elsewhere. It's a love affair. It's part and parcel of living up here. People might think I'm daft, but I'm not wrong; I'd rather win the Cup than the League.

  • If you want to have a great party at Wembley, don't invite the Germans.

  • I don't know what I'd have become if I hadn't been a footballer; I wrote down 'dustbin man' on a careers questionnaire at school till my dad made me change it to 'joiner'.

  • When I go home every night, I can look in the mirror and say I have given 110 per cent for Newcastle United. If people aren't happy with that, I can't give any more.

  • I always dreamed about scoring at St. James' Park. I fancied my chances and the ball flew into the net. I was ecstatic.

  • If you ask footballers to pick out the player they most admire, so many of them will pick Paul Scholes. His passing and shooting is of the highest level and he’s the most consistent and naturally gifted player we’ve had for a long, long time.

  • I like the tag of being the world's most expensive player. It's an honour and a privilege.

  • People say he doesn't score a lot of goals with his head, but does he really have to with the ability he has in his feet? He makes spectacular goals look easy. His technique is fantastic. (on Thierry Henry)

  • People are very proud of Newcastle, very proud to come from here. This is a working class City and they just want to enjoy themselves and live life to the full. They work all week, pick their wages up at the end of the week and they spend it over a weekend by having a good time and watching the football. That's our life.

  • I've turned down Barcelona, Inter Milan, Juventus and Manchester United to play here. I hope everyone already knows how much it means to me to play for Newcastle United.

  • For me, Paul Scholes has been the best midfield player in the Premier League. By a mile. He has the lot. He scores and creates goals, he can pass the ball, he can head it, and rounds all this off with a competitive streak.

    "Paul Scholes – the Greatest Premier League Midfielder of All Time?" by Nirmalya 'Nemo' Dutta, November 17, 2014.
  • We go there with confidence, but we know there is a very fine line between success and failure in this game.

  • I don't watch a lot of TV, to be honest. With three kids I have my hands full.

    Interview with Paul Doyle, March 11, 2010.
  • Newcastle fans never cease to amaze me. If there was a trophy for best supporters this lot would win it hands down every year.

  • One of the biggest fears of players in a shootout is letting your teammates down.

  • I've got two girls. I like to play golf. Apart from that there's not a lot goes on in my life. So I am boring, aren't I?

  • I always practise penalties, but what people don't understand is that you can never recreate that pressure situation that you're under.
