1. WORST: April 8, 1996 - Blackburn Rovers 2-1 Newcastle United
Graham Fenton. The game which probably denied Newcastle and handed the title to Manchester United. Newcastle headed into this game three points behind the leaders but with a game in-hand. When David Batty put Newcastle ahead in the 76th minute, it looked like they would close the gap to Sir Alex Ferguson’s side. However, up popped Fenton to score a brace and break Newcastle hearts.

2. BEST: October 20, 1996 - Newcastle United 5-0 Manchester United
Peacock. Ginola. Ferdinand. Shearer. Albert. After being pipped to the league title and then the Community Shield just months earlier, Newcastle were up for revenge at a feverish St James’s Park. There were so many memorable moments from this game: Albert’s chip, Shearer’s celebration, Ginola skipping past a despairing Gary Neville - it was pretty much the perfect day for Kevin Keegan’s side.

3. BEST: February 2, 1997 - Newcastle United 4-3 Leicester City
Newcastle were 3-1 down heading into the final 15 minutes of this game. However, to use commentary from his wonder-goal against Everton “cometh the hour, cometh the man” and Alan Shearer most certainly stepped-up for Newcastle. His 15-minute hat-trick helped to seal Newcastle a memorable 4-3 victory.

4. WORST: August 25th, 1999 - Newcastle United 1-2 Sunderland
Never has a game been summed up by one photo quite like this encounter. On a soaking wet night at St James’s Park, boss Ruud Gullit left out Alan Shearer and Duncan Ferguson for a game against Sunderland in maybe the biggest team selection gamble any Newcastle manager has ever taken. It spectacularly backfired, Newcastle lost 2-1 and Gullit was soon out of a job on Tyneside.
