This Newcastle shirt was one of the greatest in Premier League history

Back in 1993, Newcastle were a force to be reckoned with in the Premier League.

In the competition’s second season, Kevin Keegan’s side were rampant going forward and finished an impressive third behind Blackburn Rovers and winners Manchester United.

Peter Beardsley and Andy Cole were deadly up top, scoring a combined 55 goals that season. Cole was the division’s top goalscorer with an incredible 34.

That team weren’t just a brilliant side to watch, but they were also adorned in one of the finest football kits the 1990s produced.

The Asics-made black-and-white home kit was a joy to behold. The home kit was completed with a giant blue starΒ of Newcastle Brown Ale in the middle.

Playing in that kit, Cole went on to win the PFA Young Player of the YearΒ award after chipping in with 41 goals in all competitions.

The Northeast club would lose their talismanic striker in a Β£6million deal in the summer, a transfer that saw Keith Gillespie move the other way.

And the club’s fortunes the next season would falter, with the club falling to a sixth-place finish in the 1994-95 campaign.
