Alan Shearer

The all-time Premier League top goalscorer is perhaps best known for his time with hometown club Newcastle United, but it was the four years he spent at Jack Walker’s Blackburn Rovers that made him.

Across four seasons—one of which culminated with the capture of the Premier League title—England’s best-known No. 9 made heavy waves with 130 goals in 171 appearances; on the international side of things, he scored 28 in 56 appearances between 1992 and 1999.

Highly effective both with his feet and in the air, practically every one of Shearer’s 409 career goals was followed by what must be the dullest celebration in football history, the (drum roll…) hand in the air. Then again, after scoring that many goals, any celebration would get boring after a while.
