YouTube: Relive 8-0 win in Sir Bobby Robson's first home game in charge this weekend

Newcastle United fans can relive the Magpies' biggest ever Premier League victory in full on Saturday.

United thrashed Sheffield Wednesday 8-0 in Sir Bobby Robson's first home game in charge of his boyhood club in September 1999, with Alan Shearer - back in the starting line-up under the new boss - hitting five goals and the late, great Gary Speed also on the scoresheet alongside Aaron Hughes and Kieron Dyer.

It was a dream start to life at St. James' Park for Sir Bobby and set the tone for what was to follow, as the Magpies were transformed from relegation battlers (they went into this game bottom of the Premier League table) into a Champions League outfit.

Due to the coronavirus outbreak, the Premier League is currently suspended and Newcastle haven't played since winning 1-0 at Southampton back in early March.

But United have aimed to fill the void by showing classic matches from the archives on the club's official YouTube channel, with the famous 5-0 win against Manchester United from 1996 and the thrilling 4-4 draw with Arsenal from 2011 being watched by hundreds of thousands of supporters from all over the world. 

And, at 3pm on Saturday, fans can relive another memorable game - the day Sir Bobby's homecoming was marked in sensational style.
