β€œIn their pomp the two Pauls, Gascoigne and Scholes, were the best passers of the ball I ever had with England,” insisted Shearer.

β€œ was the very best of his generation, a mad lad but with a big heart and an even bigger talent.”

Making up the rest of his line-up are , Jackie and a host of other Tyne legends.
