THE VOICE OF SUNDAY MIRROR SPORT: Toon sparks.

IT'S a month since Bonfire Night, but you can guarantee there will be fireworks all year round on Tyneside.

Take one Geordie legend, one top-class Dutch striker, one highly opinionated Welshman and give them two striking berths between them.

Add one uncompromising Scottish manager, light the blue touch paper and stand well back.

For the rest of England, the debate over who plays up front for Newcastle is a mild diversion. In the Geordie Nation, it's everything.

Two Newcastle managers have tried to treat Shearer as just another footballer - and paid with their jobs.

If Graeme Souness can accommodate Shearer, Patrick Kluivert and Craig Bellamy and keep them all happy, it will stand as the greatest achievement of his career.
