On This Day in history sits well with Newcastle United supporters around the globe.

The Magpies will not be celebrating Cristiano Ronaldo or Neymar's birthday on the 5th of February, but rather that memorable 4-4 draw against Arsenal at St.James's Park on this day eight years ago.

Trailing the Gunners by four goals, Newcastle fought their way back, with the late Ivory Coast international Cheick Tioté netting the unforgettable late equaliser to send the home fans into absolute delirium.



Exactly 12 months later, former Senegal international Papiss Cisse marked his Newcastle United debut with this stunning winner against Aston Villa. Pick that out!
