Top 10 SBR Newcastle games

10)99/00 Spurs (H) - NUFC 6-1 THFC

Having seen Gary Speed scrape an equaliser in the initial game in the FA Cup 3rd Round at White Hart Lane, we were expecting a real ding-dong replay at SJP. However Bobby's attack minded team ripped into Spurs from the off. Speedo, Dabs, Big Dunc, Dyer and two from King Al ensured Daveeeed Ginola's deflected effort came to nothing.

9)99/00 Southampton (H) NUFC 5-0 SFC

Beating Southampton wouldn't appear to be a major event but the manner in which it was done was one of the most brutal halves of football. Claus 'Frying Pan' Lundekvam was left a broken man after Ferguson scored twice inside the first four minutes. Solano, a Dryden own goal and a Shearer missed penalty had visions of another 8-0 against Sheffield Wednesday, but the second half was an altogether tamer affair as only Dabs scored.

8)99/00 Man U(H) - NUFC 3-0 MUFC

No-one gave us a hope in hells chance of beating the Mancs, but from the off we went after them. Ferguson lashed a beaut in at the Leazes, spinning on the volley from 25 yards. Shearer then popped up with two at the Gallowgate to seal their fate.

7)01/02 Everton (H) - NUFC 6-2 EFC

A very, very Good Friday, as we went nap against the Toffees. Goals from Shearer, Cort, O'Brien, Solano x2 and Bernard ensured mackem Steve Simonsen went home red faced from this hiding.

6)03/04 Chelsea (H) - NUFC 2-1 CFC

The game that effectively sealed our UEFA Cup spot in that season. A Shola effort and a Shearer special saw a raucous SJP enjoy a very rare win against the Rent Boys.

5) 02/03 Blackburn (H) - NUFC 5-1 BRFC

A classic Sir Bobby game. Free flowing football from a young team that promised so much. Solano opened the scoring in the first half before it went goal crazy in the second. Duff equalised before Robert, Jenas, a Gresko o.g and Bellamy meant Souness's mob went home whipped.

4) 01/02 Man U (H) - NUFC 4-3 MUFC

In a season full of classic NUFC games this won the accolade of the best home match. Bobby's 100th match in charge of the club saw Robert open the scoring with a free kick that made him a cult hero.

Van Nistelrooy then equalised against his former gaffer before Rob Lee and Dabs sent us 3-1 up. The Mancs came storming back into with goals from Giggs and Veron before, in the last minute, Shearer rammed the goal homeward off Laurent Blanc. An absolute classic.

3) 02/03 Arsenal (A) - AFC 1-3 NUFC

A 'Live on Sky' special involving Newcastle as we went to Highbury, won and went top of the league. Parlour and Bellamy were sent off as Pires opened the scoring before O'Brien, Shearer from the spot and then finally Robert pulled off a magical win.

2) 02/03 Feyenoord (A) - FFC 2-3 NUFC

Replaying the commentary on this one, with the scream of 'Bellamy' by Peter Drury in the dying seconds is enough to bring a lump to the throat. Bellers and Viana had put us 2-0 up in Rotterdam, with Juve doing the job under the most unlikely circumstances in Kiev.

The Dutchies then stormed back with goals from Bombarda and Lurling and looked the more likely to win. However Dyer was sent through and looked certain to score. As usual his finishing let him down and Lodewijks saved. However Bellamy lashed in the palmed shot from an impossible angle as the fans behind him went mental. Truly magic.

1) 01/02 Leeds (A) - LUFC 3-4 LUFC

Leeds didn't use to be that bad once upon a time and we went there when they had a team full of O'Leary's 'boibies'. However we were top of the league and continued our form from Highbury four days earlier as Dyer roasted Ian Harte and crossed for Bellers to notch.

Back came Leeds and goals from the recently trial cleared Bowyer, Viduka and Harte put them seemingly out of sight. However Newcastle fired back with Robbie Elliott diving in to score with a header before Eirik Bakke handled Speedo's flick on. Shearer lashed in the shot and Leeds were visibly fading.

Then, in the last minute, Dyer slipped in Nobby in a race against Harte. The ROI international ran with diver's boots on against the sprightly Peruvian and he slipped the ball under Martyn to send the 5,000 in the way end bonkers. This game, more than any other, sums up Newcastle under Bobby. Fearless, determined, vibrant and tenacious, just like the man himself.

The good old days. I remember each match in your list. Bobby was and is a legend and will be missed by all. The only man that I think could united all the teams in the world singing one song "There is only one Bobby Robson"
