“When the club had ambition” – A lot of Newcastle fans are reminiscing about the day they signed Alan Shearer for a world-record fee of £15m.

It was on this day 23 years ago that the Toon bought Shearer from Blackburn Rovers – as they attempted to win the Premier League title.

The post from Newcastle’s Twitter account, however, has just made a lot of fans realise how much has changed at their football club in that time.

Back then Newcastle were competing for trophies and in European competitions – now they are just happy to stay in the Premier League.

The Toon have so far made one signing this summer – and they are apparently struggling to bring anyone else in.

A lot of Newcastle fans have used this post about Shearer to vent their anger about the current situation.

See the best of the reaction below.
