Newcastle United fans in the Transfer Tavern are having a celebratory pint after their team moved out of the bottom three for the first time this season following their 1-0 victory at Bournemouth at the weekend.
However they are only two points above the drop line and there is every chance that The Magpies will be hovering around the dreaded depths of the Premier League amongst fears that they will be fighting another relegation battle this season.

This has triggered a discussion in The Tavern: which former players would the fans like to see back in the black and white jersey?
We’ve taken a look at five ex-Newcastle heroes that would be welcomed back to St James’s Park that could help The Magpies fly back up the table.
