Newcastle United’s all-time best Premier League players

Adam Brown

Newcastle United is a great football club. Whilst the Geordies haven’t always had the best of success on the pitch, the culture and support in the city of Newcastle is up there with the best fan bases in the world – even if based on the excellent shouts of “Howay!” at a decision the crowd disagree with.

But who are the best ever Premier League players to wear the Magpies shirt for the Toon army? Some of the games best have appeared in the black and white stripes, so it’s surprising the club hasn’t had more success on the pitch, other than a few high Premier League finishes!

There are some honourable mentions to Damien Duff and Lomana Lua Lua (for his amazing flips) but unfortunately this duo didn’t quite make the cut.

Are Newcastle a big club? Not if you’re measuring by trophies, but it’s pretty easy to judge the status of a club by how big their trophy cabinet is. There has to be at some-point, a broader scale for measuring the stature of a club. Great stadium, fans, former players and now, a world-class manager. It’s looking positive for the Geordies at the moment, we expect Rafa will soon have them stable in the Premier League again, and to be fair, they do belong there.
