Shearer is one of the greatest players to have ever played for Newcastle and is hugely popular among the St. James’ Park faithful.
It has been reported that the prospective new owners of the Magpies are thinking of naming the number nine bar after Shearer and the East Stand after a club legend.
The bar was called Shearer’s Bar until 2013 when it was changed, as reported by The Daily Mail at the time.
According to The Chronicle, Saudi Arabia’s Public Investment Fund will own 80% of Newcastle when the takeover goes through.
Big win among Newcastle United fans
PIF’s reported plan regarding honouring Shearer will go down as a big win among the Newcastle fans.
Shearer is a club legend and icon, and renaming the club bar after him will be very popular among the fans.
Moreover, naming the East Stand after a Newcastle legend will also be huge for the St. James’ Park faithful.
