Robbie Elliott: "It's going to be a sensational atmosphere. Since Kevin left the club, he's been back just once, for Peter Beardsley's testimonial.
"I was fortunate enough to play that day and when he appeared, the roof nearly came off the place.
"It was the loudest noise I've ever heard in my life, scarily loud.
"What's happened up here is incredible. People from outside just don't understand how exciting this is for Newcastle.
"It's been a difficult time for the club, but from Saturday onwards, hopefully, the place will take off.
"Before this happened Newcastle was a place where opposing teams were coming and commanding games. But this changes everything.
"It's going to be sensational. If anybody can get Newcastle going, he can."
