Keegan, Waddle, Beardsley – Newcastle’s Greatest Ever Forward Line?

8 years ago

The 1983/84 season must rank as one of my favourites, if not THE top one.

United were in the second division but the signing of Kevin Keegan triggered a sensational revival, as Chris Waddle came through and Peter Beardsley was picked up for a pittance to bring him home.

Seeing the latest Mag Auctions brought back all of the memories, as the programme from the very best match of that season is included.

Newcastle ended that 83/84 season only in third but what a year it was, to me it summed up what being a Newcastle fan is all about. We might not have won anything but we watched some brilliant football.

Going back to that programme, it was from the Newcastle v Manchester City match.

City arrived at St.James’ Park as promotion rivals but left demolished and utterly demoralised.

Keegan, Waddle and Beardsley ran riot that day and Peter was the pick of the bunch. A hat-trick in the 5-0 thrashing was classic stuff and one of the best performances I’ve ever seen.

Nostalgia…it isn’t what it used to be!

Check out the Mag Auctions of classic Newcastle United memorabilia.

Each Sunday a new batch of NUFC collectables with be made available on eBay with prices starting from as low as 99p.

With Manchester City first up in the Premier League we thought we’d look back at classic moments v City over the decades and bring you a selection of memorabilia to bring those memories flooding back.

We have Kevin Keegan, Tino, FA Cup Final, Ivor Broadis, Bobby Mitchell, Peter Beardsley and much much more.

With a deep love of United’s history and the classic memorabilia and programmes that are a big part of that, we have always intended to bring you our very own auctions.

Delving into Newcastle’s extraordinary history, each week we will be putting a number of items up for auction via eBay, with prices starting from as a little as 99p.

Not everybody will want to bid on the items but we are sure that the range of items will provoke interest and debate, plus the memories flooding back.

It costs nothing to look and with the auctions lasting for a week you have plenty of time to keep an eye and bid at any time over the 7 days, potentially picking up a real bargain.

Every week a selection including programmes, magazines, tickets, trading cards and clothing CLICK HERE to visit.
