REMEMBER when we were all united about the Mags? When quality players were comrades and top-class performers? Good, because we're about to revisit those recent times in the company of Mick Quinn, Steve Watson and Pavel Srnicek.

I'll be the questioner at Dunston's Lancastrian Suite on Tuesday night when Relentless Promotions are staging a blackand-white night to remember. Event organiser and managing director of Relentless Promotions, Steve Wraith, said: "After the season Newcastle have just had it will be nice to reflect on the happier times Quinny, Watto and Pav gave their all for the shirt."

Quinn, as crafty as a box of monkeys, exploded into life on Tyneside with an unforgettable four-goal blitz on his debut against Leeds United on August 19, 1989, ending the season as the Football League's leading goal-scorer.

Watson is the local lad who came good, a versatile performer capable of playing all over the park. He made his first appearance against Wolves in November of 1990, becoming the youngest first-teamer in Newcastle's long history.

Srnicek, of course, was so loved he inspired his own terrace chant, 'Pavel is a Geordie.' Joining from Banik Ostrava in January 1991, Pav (left) went on to become a cult hero and played under four different managers - Jim Smith, Ossie Ardiles, Kevin Keegan, and, upon his return for a second spell in 2006, Glenn Roeder.

Throughout his time with the club, Pav became the club's longest-serving foreign player, surpassing Chilean duo George and Ted Robledo.

"Quinny wore the No 9 jersey with pride and scored some great goals," said Wraith. "He's a terrific character who is still captivating football fans on talkSport and through his Chronicle column.

"Watto was part of the wonderful Entertainers team and has some great yarns about life under Kevin Keegan. And last but not least there is Pav who has seen it all."
