Once Keegan had been persuaded to continue the good work he started it was all systems go. Hall and Keegan were both very clear about the target; there was no time for consolidation, the newly-formed Premiership was the aim.

In the summer the team was strengthened significantly with the addition of Paul Bracewell, John Beresford and Barry Venison; Robert Lee would follow in September.

United started the season in brilliant fashion with 11 consecutive victories in the League culminating with a 2-1 victory at Roker Park following O'Brien's memorable free-kick.

17 wins in the 23 games before Christmas gave Newcastle a twelve point lead over second placed Tranmere.

The New Year saw United get a bit jittery and a run of 5 draws and one defeat saw The Magpie's seemingly unassailable lead being gradually whittled away.

United got back on track with a televised 3-0 win at Tranmere, but Keegan wanted to make sure and the cheque book was opened to fund the purchases of Scott Sellars, Mark Robinson and (for aAndy Cole.

Promotion was finally secured with victory at Grimsby and the season finished in style as United thrashed Leicester 7-1 after leading 6-0 at half-time.

The Cups were no more than an inconvenience and there was no shame in being narrowly beaten by Premiership clubs Blackburn and Chelsea.
