Newcastle 7 Spurs 1 – Video Flashback

8 years ago

With Tottenham the next visitors to St.James’ Park, we have raided the video vaults and came up with this classic Newcastle 7 Spurs 1 encounter to hopefully cheer you up…

This footage reminds me of a lot of things.

Despite the ground at the time still holding only 36,000, the atmosphere is absolutely brilliant and the football is a match for the fans’ contribution.

It was 28 December 1996 and proved to be bizarrely Kevin Keegan’s second last match, the final one being a 3-0 win over Leeds.

The team lined up with Hislop, Watson, Peacock, Albert, Beresford, Batty, Lee, Gillespie (Clark 40), Beardsley, Shearer, Ferdinand

The scoreline is obviously special but just watch the outstanding free flowing football and tell me you wouldn’t love to see the like again.

Two goals for Lee, Ferdinand and Shearer, plus one for the rampaging defender Phillippe Albert, what a player and what a team. Thank you Kevin Keegan for bringing that era to us, we’ll never forget.
