Newcastle United striker Alan Shearer celebrates scoring against Leeds United, St. James' Park, January 1997.

Newcastle United supporters still pine for the entertainment of Kevin Keegan’s first spell as manager – and this 7-1 demolition of Tottenham in December 1996 is one of the reasons why. 

Having seen their title challenge of the previous season fade and die, Keegan spent a world-record fee to bring a certain striker to St. James’ Park.

He was one of four Newcastle goalscorers against a hapless Spurs side and, despite Keegan resigning from his position within a month of this match, Newcastle still finished second in the Premier League table.

We’re asking you to name the starting XI that put Tottenham to the sword 25 years ago.
