In two spells at St. James Park, 1991 - 1998 and 2006 - 2007, he established himself as a fan favourite.

At half time in Newcastle's St. Stephen's Day game against Everton, fans sang 'Pavel is a Geordie' which was recorded and played at his bedside.

Tributes from former teammates and those who played against him have been paid to Srnicek.
