Newcastle United Change

Newcastle United Terry Moran


My greatest memory was by a striker,who not just scored great goals but was so exciting with his turn of speed to ghost past defenders ,Malcolm Macdonald (Super Mac) scored one of the greatest goals against Leicester city at St James Park,and painfully there were no cameras to witness it otherwise this goal would have been shown for years.

Super Mac received a pass just inside his own half from Irving Natrass and let go a screamer with such power, it flew over the head of Mark Wallington,who at the time was a really good keeper,he just didn't have time to react. We all went wild. What was even better was that I was in the centre paddock and just watched in amazement. I've seen a few goals over the years but only Super Mac could have pulled that one out the hat.




Newcastle United Foundation have a heritage project for fans of all ages called Toon Times.


Toon Times will culminate with a major Newcastle United exhibition at the Discovery Museum, Newcastle, although in the lead up to this event Toon Times wishes to reach out to all Newcastle United fans across the North East and further afield to get involved and share their memories, experiences, photos and memorabilia what people have collected over the years.

We are supporting the project by helping to collect NUFC memories online - fans can share their memories on the Replay Football website, simply select the Toon Times tag when submitting yours.

Yes, I was also in the Centre Paddock for this goal, and it remains the best goal I have ever seen. I recall Mark Wallington applauding the goal - a rare example of sportsmanship that you probably would not see in today's "winning is everything" climate.
