Would Toon hitting a ton mean they're better than class of 92/93?
At the start of the season with the fear factor at an all time high that Newcastle would follow the path of Leeds United many wondered if the Magpies were good enough to scrape together the mere 50 points to survive a season in the Championship.
Well how wrong they were.
Victories over Plymouth and Ipswich would see Newcastle go beyond the 100 point mark with a game to spare.
It would also see Newcastle eclipse the points tally of 96 set by the side that clinched the title in 1993.
Already many have compared aces like Beresford, Venison, Kelly, Cole, Peacock, Clark and Sellars with Enrique, Carroll, Nolan, Simpson, Coloccini, Harper and Jonas.
But from my point of view we're talking about two teams from different eras.
And while this set of players are likely to get more points and have been promoted quicker with six games to spare as opposed to two, the 1993 brigade have thus far scored more goals and had more away wins.
The 2010 side could also be unbeaten at home with the infamous 1-0 loss to Grimsby in 1992 denting that record.
Back in 1993, the side had just fought of relegation to the old Second Division and were very punching above their weight to win the title, despite some great signings like Bracewell, Venison and Cole.
The 2010 side, who aren't champs yet of course, are mainly Premier League players who arguably should never have been relegated to start with.
I think perhaps the best way to look at the situation is to say that both teams have been fantastic for different reasons and will be remembered because of that.
WHAT DO YOU THINK?
