The first night in front of the "new" Gallowgate End
It was a balmy night in August, Newcastle United were 3-0 up against Coventry after 34 minutes through Rob Lee (then in his prime) and the brand new Gallowgate End stand chanted "Easy, easy, easy" with the pristine new plastic seats hardly even used in a first half in which the Sky Blues had been torn apart.
The rout of Coventry was game two of United's first of 11 games unbeaten in the top flight under Kevin Keegan.
It was 1994, there was no Strawberry Corner with the old Gallowgate bulldozed, people still used telephone boxes, most people only had four channels, talking about blogging would have made people think you meant an outside toilet and extended highlights were the blond streaks in Barry Venison's hair!
And and if you had honestly said then that the Magpies were going to win the Premier League title, then thousands of season ticket holders would probably have believed you!
Newcastle could not keep up the goal rush and the game ended 4-0, with Lee's brace and strikes from Andy Cole and Steve Watson (playing as a striker due to a facial injury for Peter Beardsley), polishing off Coventry.
It was a great time to be a Newcastle fan, but ultimately after making an unbeaten start, the next 14 matches would result in just two wins - all but ended hope of even putting together a title challenge.
Let's be honest, if many of us had the choice, they would pay money to watch the team of 1994.
But statistics now show, the current team are on par in terms of games unbeaten and they could even go one better against Man City, albeit against all odds.
There may be no Peter Beardsley, Andy Cole, Rob Lee or even Phillipe Albert, but you could argue that Alan Pardew's achievement of starting the new campaign is BIGGER.
I say that because, unlike Keegan's Class Of 94, Pardew has had to do the job without being backed by mega money like the days of Sir John Hall.
Pardew has also had to win over the Geordie public, something that Keegan never had to do as he was already a hero when he arrived.
I'm not playing down the 1994 team, it was an awesome time to follow Newcastle, it was exciting and there was nothing really to fear because at that time, the Premiership was in its infancy and nobody really knew what was to come in terms of teams like Nottingham Forest, Manchester City and Leeds United spending big before sliding down the leagues - not least our own recent bitter experiences.
Back then people probably expected Newcastle to be up at the top of the Premier League.
Now, it is a pleasant surprise, almost a fairytale when you look at how things were just a few short weeks ago after a summer of woe.
For different reasons, I hope in years to come that people are still talking about this group of players.
Yohan Cabaye, Demba Ba, Ryan Taylor, Fabricio Coloccini and Tim Krul to name but a few have emerged as new heroes.
It's been a dreamlike start to the season so far and long may it continue.
And after the current crop of players have worked so hard to level that record, it's great for them that people are paying them the respect they deserve for a great start to the season.
