Newcastle Head To Hungary and Bring Back The Cup – Video Special

9 years ago

Our last trophy was won in black & white, unless you were one of the lucky ones to make it over to Budapest, the best you would have seen would have been the highlights that we bring you tonight.

The first season Newcastle United competed in Europe and they bring back the Cup, you couldn’t make it up.

In this second leg match (see our [intlink id=”29835″ type=”post”]first leg article/video[/intlink]) of course, Newcastle were battered in the first forty five minutes and went in two down, only three-two up on aggregate.

There then followed the great story of Joe Harvey calmly walking into a dispirited dressing room and asking what was wrong, when the players pointed out that United were being taken apart, Joe coolly replied that they just needed to get one and the Hungarians would fall apart (or words to that effect!).

They went out for that second half and Bobby Moncur quickly got his third goal of the two-legged final, the only three goals he would score for Newcastle.

The rest as they say is history, further goals from Arentoft and Foggon capping a magnificent fightback and 6-2 aggregate win.
