Quote of the day

"Newcastle United are my team. Alan Shearer is more than just a local legend, he's probably one of the greatest footballers of all time".

Sir Liam Donaldson, the government's Chief Medical Officer and the new Chancellor of Newcastle University, on the award of an honorary degree in civil law to Wor Al. Another one to add to the collection, following closely on the heels of his appointment as Deputy Lieutenant of Northumberland.

As it went unreported here, I should add that Shearer was also recently named as the new patron of the Sir Bobby Robson Foundation, commenting: "Bobby was, quite rightly, incredibly proud of what his charity had achieved and I'm just as proud now to be asked to help carry on his fight against cancer".
