Newcastle fans have loved seeing Andy Cole induced to club’s hall of fame

Newcastle fans have loved seeing Andy Cole induced to club’s hall of fame

Andy Cole is one of the best strikers to have ever set foot in the Premier League. His ability to find the net was unparalleled when he was at his best and it’s fair to say that Newcastle fans would die to have a man with even have the ability of Cole now, as they induced the 47-year-old into their very own club hall of fame on Tuesday night.

It seems strange to think that Cole will be apart of the St James Park hall of fame despite the fact he was only at he club for around nine months between March 1994 and January 1995, but that shows just how big of an impact the humble young Arsenal academy product had in his time in the Northeast. Whilst he may be more famously remembered for his Manchester United days, the Magpies still love him.

In just 61 games for Newcastle United, Cole bagged 47 goals. That figure alone sets him apart from more strikers and his hit rate made him one of the best strikers in the world at that time, with United eventually realising that they wouldn’t win anything domestically if they had to go up against Cole every season. The striker is now long-retired and as he enters the Magpies hall of fame, it’s really hitting home just how badly Newcastle United could do with a man of his calibre now.
