Euro Glory Could See Honours For Toon Players

Take away the Europa League, and 2012/13 has been a horror year for Newcastle United.

I cannot say any Newcastle player has stood out as being extra special this season, but success in Amsterdam could change that.

As supporters, we want the best players at this club, and many still look back to 1996 when we thrilled the nation, but had the title snatched away at the final hurdle.

I ask you, of our current squad (on this season's form), how many would get into Kevin Keegan's team of 1996?

Not many - if any!

Will any player win an award like our heroes of the past ...
