With all the glitz and glamour that came with the Newcastle United takeover, one thing that supporters were most looking forward to was the return of some ‘club legends’ that had been forgotten about by the previous ownership.

Under the previous ownership, much like many things at the club, Newcastle’s great history and legacy was seemingly forgotten about and barely promoted, despite the hunger from supporters to remember ‘the good old days’.

Included in our list are some people that had experiences with Mike Ashley, others simply were never given the prominence at St James’s Park that their influence at the club and on football deserved.

Here, we have listed nine people who we believe should be given greater prominence by the new owners at St James’s Park.

Do you agree with our picks? Have we left anyone out?
