Chronicled: The History of NUFC | Episode 18: 1968-71: European Glory (Part One)

Matt and Paul are joined by Newcastle United royalty to discuss the club's 1969 Fairs Cup triumph.

Bob Moncur was the club captain during this period and he talks us through the era in the first of a very special two-part episode. Bob discusses Newcastle's route to the final, via tricky two-legged ties with clubs like Feyenoord and Glasgow Rangers. He also reflects in detail about the two legged final with Hungarian side Ujpest Dozsa, recalling what Joe Harvey said before, during and after the sensational second leg in which Bob scored.

Part Two of this episode will be released next week.
