Newcastle legends from across the decades offer a unique insight into the most magical moments in the history of the North East giants. Magpies greats from Alan Shearer to Bob Moncur and Les Ferdinand to Nobby Solano take us into the inner sanctuary of the dressing room, with previously unheard stories from their favourite matches in the famous black-and-white stripes. Shay Given lifts the lid on how Mike Ashley forced him to put in a transfer request when he was on the cusp of becoming Newcastle's record appearance-holder.

Rafa Benitez reveals the secrets of his love affair with the Toon Army, while Nikos Dabizas recalls 'going from heaven to hell' in the space of just a few days by scoring an iconic late winner in a Tyne-Wear derby before falling victim to Dennis Bergkamp's wonder goal. 'Sir' Les Ferdinand takes us back to the glory days of Kevin Keegan's 'Entertainers', and Malcolm 'Supermac' Macdonald recalls asking Bobby Robson for his autograph as a schoolboy, only to sign for him years later. Published in 2023.
