Take your mind back to August 8 2009 on a pleasant summer day at the Hawthorns.
Newcastle United had been freshly relegated and the whole of Tyneside were up in arms at just where the much maligned Mags would be come the end of the season.
United's first game of the new season had been especially selected for BBC broadcast live to the nation with the public undressing of a once great football club about to unfold on the box to the blood thirsty non-Tyneside audience.
Or at least that was how many expected it to go the last time Newcastle travelled to the Hawthorns for a league clash.
