Newcastle United’s greatest European moments - and the photos to prove it

We relive some memorable Magpies moments that have come in European competitions.

Newcastle United are rapidly closing in on securing a return to European competition for the first time in a decade.

There was once a time, not so long ago, when facing European visitors under the St James Park floodlights was commonplace and United’s entry in the Champions League, UEFA Cup, Cup Winners Cup and, yes, even the Intertoto Cup, seemed to be an annual event.

The memories have flowed in the houses of Magpies supporters as they relieved some magical moments in the club’s history that have come against opposition from the continent. From Bobby Moncur lifting the Fairs Cup on a balmy night in Budapest to Bellamy late winner at Feyenoord sending Sir Bobby Robson’s Magpies in the Champions League record books.

So with a return to European competition now looking closer than ever, NewcastleWorld thought it was a good time to relive ten of the best moments witnessed by United supporters against some eye-catching opponents.
