Alan Shearer knew he did not have to think twice when asked if he believes Mike Ashley will sell Newcastle United.
The NUFC legend declaring: "We have already met before and we have listened to everything before".

Just like the rest of us, Alan Shearer is skeptical about exactly why Ashley decided to present his statements on Sky News on Monday: "It seems that these voices always return around the January transfer window and it's a bit 39, like the day of the marmot to be honest ".
The former number nine of the NUFC hopes that this time there is "substance" but clearly does not expect anything to happen quickly.
In better news, Shearer is relieved that "a difficult start to the season" when Newcastle picked up or only two points in nine games, was followed by 11 points from their last six games.
That time of six wins, two draws and only one defeat meant that the Magpies have only four clubs with better records when it comes to the Premier League football table, during the tournament. last half a dozen games.
Alan Shearer talks to Coral:
"I can not get excited about the potential takeover in Newcastle.
" We've been there before and we've heard it before.
"It seems that these voices are always re-emerge around the January transfer window and it's a bit like Groundhog Day to be honest.
"That said, it's definitely necessary, so I hope this time ends up being more substance behind the rumors
" In the field, they put together some much better results after a difficult start of the season.
"They came up against West Ham but they came back with a good score at Everton, so overall there was a lot more promise and it was great to see. "
