Possibly the best Alan Shearer picture ever to grace the Internet

It might take you a minute to get this, but once you do we hope you appreciate it as much as we do...

As you all have probably seen from his appearances on Match of the Day in recent years, Alan Shearer isn’t exactly the most charismatic of individuals, so it will come as little surprise to learn that this picture isn’t of the man himself, but it does bear at least a little resemblance to his name.

The picture, which was posted online recently and came to our attention thanks to the lads over at 101 Great Goals, shows a Newcastle fan in a vintage early-90s jersey standing alongside a sign in the Middle East that, when said aloud, corresponds to the name of a man who was a legend on Tyneside before settling for a life of bland mediocrity on the MOTD couch.

After some very brief research, we think the street is located in a place called Muscat in Oman, but we don’t think former Australian footballer, the notorious Kevin Muscat, enjoys the type of hero worship to justify fans standing beside a sign bearing his name, at least not yet.
