Peter Beardsley’s and Newcastle United’s Greatest Ever Goal?

9 years ago

I saw the invitation on The Mag’s weekly newsletter (click HERE to subscribe for free and get information/entertainment, as well as exclusive offers and competitions direct to your mailbox) asking for fans to send in the three best ever Newcastle United goals.

I was thinking about my top three and came up with the following;

1. Peter Beardsley v Portsmouth.

I forget the exact date I’m afraid.

Peter used his dazzling ball skills to bamboozle the Portsmouth defence to literally walk the ball into the net.

Amazing skill.

2. Shearer v Everton.

Have to agree with Dave Green (see his top 3 goals article [intlink id=”30571″ type=”post”]HERE[/intlink]) on that one.

3. Tino Asprilla v Barcelona.

Take your pick of which headed goal you like the most as both were outstanding headers.

Both balls being delivered from the right wing by Dizzy Gillespie, who tore the Barca full-back to pieces.

Big goals in a massive game.

Relegated only by the magnitude of the Barca game was Supermac’s goal against…my memory isn’t what it was. Anyway the ball is played out by the keeper and is hit first time by the magnificent Terry Hibbitt straight into McDonald’s path who bullies the center half and finishes with a first time strike.

Amazing goal!
