Hello and welcome to our regular “match banter” feature on this special evening, which sees Newcastle United embarking on their first European campaign for over five years, when Glenn Roeder slipped us in through the back door of the Intertoto Cup into what was the the UEFA Cup.

We made it to the last sixteen back then, eventually coming a cropper against Dutch side, AZ Alkmaar. Despite being 4-2 up after the first home leg, Alkmaar pulled back the two goal deficit, winning the leg at their place 2-0 and going through on away goals. Lets hope we can take it further this time!
