Supermac, Len White & Tony Green – Newcastle United’s Greatest Ever Goal?

11 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.

As far as I’m concerned, and I’ve seen some crackers, it has to be Len White’s goal – that goal is etched in my memory. I was only about 13 or so sitting on the wall in the middle of the ‘Popular side’ as it was then.  Len waltzed past five or six Man City players and drew Bert Trautmann out and feinted one way and swerved past the other way and planted the ball in the net – simply magnificent!

I recall Tony Green scoring a scorcher into the Leazes end before his tragic injury and many fantastic Shearer goals, but Malcolm MacDonald’s goal in the 1974 semi final against Burnley has to have a mention, as well as Cisse’s goal against Chelsea.

Magic Moments eh?

For me though the best ever goal is still to be scored – the one that claims the Premier League title for Newcastle United.

Ah well, dream on!
