Through doing just that, several Magpies cult heroes have been born, and we’ve been dealt the difficult task of putting them into a starting XI.
9. Jonas Gutierrez (2008-15)
It’d be easy to pick out a number of standout moments from Gutierrez’s seven-year Newcastle career but as we all know, his story runs much deeper than what he did on the pitch. Diagnosed with testicular cancer, the Argentine’s comeback is up there with one of the greatest stories in Premier League history - making a full recovery to score the goal that kept the club in the top-flight on the final day of the 2014/15 season. A fairytale ending, as it also proved to be his final kick as the United player.
The arrival in the Tyneside snow, that impressive winter coat, an iconic debut at the Riverside Stadium and THAT hat-trick against Barcelona. The Colombian forward came with a big reputation after joining the Magpies from Serie A side Parma and his unconventional style of forward play made him a popular figure at the Gallowgate. Incorrectly blamed for costing United the Premier League title in 1996, the unpredictable forward will always be remembered for a stunning hat-trick against Barcelona as the Magpies stunned the Catalan giants with a 3-2 win on their Champions League debut in 1997.
When Sibierski arrived from Man City on August deadline day in 2006, it was a bit of a mystery, however the French striker, during his one season at St James’s Park, would go down as one of the club’s best-ever free transfers. He scored three Premier League goals but was better known for UEFA Cup exploits.
