Topic: Allan Clarke v Newcastle early 1970`s

When I was a kid I remember the opening credits for Match of the Day showing Allan Clarke curling a shot from the edge of the area past an hapless Iam McFaul, of Newcastle at St James`s Park. The goal wasn`t goal of the season, but it was a quality strike.

For a few years I have looked online for the goal and I have finally found it. I think we lost the game and although the quality of the video isn`t great, it still shows the quality of my all time hero and his ability to finish. Mick Jones was a great unselfish partner for Clarke, a real shame Jones career was finished prematurely.

The goal starts at 1.25

Looking for this goal I came across 2 other video`s one where Malcolm Allison says we are the greatest English football side ever, Clough was ill that day, my arse, just couldn`t eulogise about us

Also this one with Frank McLintock saying we were the best side of the `70`s.
