My favourite goal at St James Park!

Hatem Ben Arfa against Bolton in the premier league in 2012. Picking the ball up inside his own half he turns the opposing midfielder inside out with one swift turn then he bursts towards the Gallowgate goal skipping past defenders as if they were not there before placing the ball in the bottom corner of the net past the on rushing goalkeeper! A truly great moment and the best goal I have seen live! Still gives me goosebumps when I think about it!

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.
