Newcastle United Football Club is an English professional association football club based in Newcastle upon Tyne. Newcastle United was founded in 1892 by the merger of Newcastle East End and Newcastle West End, and has played at its current home ground, St James' Park, ever since. The ground was developed into an all-seater stadium in the mid-1990s and now has a capacity of 52,354.

The club has been a member of the Premier League for all but three years of the competition's history, spending 85 seasons in the top tier as of May 2016, and has never dropped below English football's second tier since joining the Football League in 1893. They have won four League Championship titles, six FA Cups and a Charity Shield, as well as the 1969 Inter-Cities Fairs Cup and the 2006 UEFA Intertoto Cup. Newcastle United has the ninth highest total of trophies won by an English club. The club's most successful period was between 1904 and 1910, when they won an FA Cup and three of their First Division titles. The club were highly successful in the Premier League in the 1990s and early 2000s without winning any trophies, but have been mostly struggling since the 2006–07 season, and were relegated in 2009 and 2016. They returned to the Premiership for the 2017–18 season after winning the Championship title the preceding year.

Newcastle has a fierce local rivalry with Sunderland, and the two clubs have engaged in the Tyne–Wear derby since 1898. The club's traditional kit colours are black and white striped shirts, black shorts and black socks. Their traditional crest takes elements of the city coat of arms, which features two grey seahorses. Prior to each home game the team enters the field to "Local Hero", written by Newcastle native Mark Knopfler, while "Blaydon Races" is invariably sung during games.

The club has been owned by Mike Ashley since 2007, succeeding long term chairman and owner Sir John Hall. The club is the 17th-highest revenue producing club in the world in terms of annual revenue, generating €169.3 million in 2015. Historically, Newcastle's highest placing was in 1999, when they were the fifth-highest revenue producing football club in the world, and second in England only behind Manchester United.

Hey guys, been a fan since I was like 8 years old but I have never had a chance to go the cathedral known as St. James Park whenever I visit family in London. This September though, I plan on making the trek up to Newcastle to catch the game against Brighton. Can anyone let me know the best way to get a ticket? It seems much more complicated than what I'm used to with Atlanta United. Alright, end of long post.

NUFC. What is the implication of Rafa clearing his desk at the training ground?

I instantly looked at the last 4 or 5 games (because I know they will be in a relegation battle) and those last games look tough Liverpool Man City Tottenham uh oh

The last 5 games very2 hard to face MC Spurs n Liverpool

😤 Leave it out, I haven't got the energy for you tonight darling 😘 PS Divvint sell Longstaff x

No news on takeover or Rafa. But news of a price increase on season tickets. Nice club. Great PR department.

No new signings.. Manager's future is unsure.. No more news for takeover..

Get Newcastle United's new CD Tunes Of The Year. With classics like, Simon and Garfunkel: The Sound Of Silence New Order: Your Silent Face Bob Mould: The Silence Between Us Starsailor: Silence Is Easy 3 Doors Down: The Silence Remains Sam Philips: Walls Of Silence Get these and other great tracks! Available nowhere, just like NUFC important updates!!

The club management's lack of communication to the fans is absolutely disappointing...What's important is Rafa Benitez's future that needs to be sort out. Status, confirmation and updates of "new owner" sales progress.. Update us such status instead of fixtures which we can see and find everywhere at soccer sports website.

City (A) will be the game we clinch the title

Well the fixtures are there what about the owner, manager, and squad?

City (A) will be the game we clinch the title

K.O times and match days to be decided by Sky t.v.

ICYMI : Newcastle United Your whole fan base wants to know what is happening with both the potential takeover and Rafa's future. We'll then decide if we're turning up to any of the fixtures

One day I'll wake up and Rafa, Mbappe and take over will happen

No fking Comment. :)

But who will our Manager be?

Sunderland is going up and we’re going down! 😂

You’re like a broken record

Blackpool just announced new ownership.... see, not that difficult!!!

Waiting to see what happens with the takeover and most importantly Rafas situation! No chance am giving the fcb anymore of my money which just goes towards shin pads and water bottles at sports direct

I missed the announcement about takeover and Rafa Benitez..........

Announce Rafa

How have there been 9 separate posts about opening fixtures when: We don’t know who our manager is going to be and we don’t know what direction the club is going? Surely fans deserve to hear something even if it is something small to reassure us. Shambolic.

Heard from a friend who nahs som1 inside and roumer is that Rafa has gone

Make out your season ticket cheque directly to “Mike Ashley”. This will save him the bother of taking your money indirectly via the pretend “football club” called Newcastle United.

Need more clarity on the situation regarding the take over bid plus on Rafa.

You might want to announce who will be managing the club from 30 June, who the owner of the club will be next season and who will be playing upfront next season? The silence is deafening.

Anyone that renews their season tickets is part of the problem.

Won’t let me renew online and it also has the wrong season date on my account 👏

You'd be mad to renew now.

I've had a season ticket for ten years but refuse to renew mine until the FCB stops saying #NOCOMMENT

The only comment from the club is fans can renew their season tickets.

Now £94 a month - and I'll only get one game in Sep and one in April. 😂

Don’t renew your season ticket until everything’s been finalised. #nocomment

Easy game first up Ollie Hill

Mad how people dont realise some of us have had season ticket deal for 10 years at same price.

Why would anyone renew at the moment?

Hope we have a better start than last season.

Well they need to hurry up with the manager and if we getting a new owner or I won’t be renewing my session ticket

Problem is, come 11Aug, Ashley will still be the owner, Rafa will be gone, we’ll have no Rondon, no Perez, no Diame, no Hayden to name a few but there will still be 52,000 at SJP.

any news on takeover, it needs to happen and quickly

Don't buy season tickets wake up mugs...you are not supporting your club you are helping to kill it....

Lungisani Khehla Gumede no comment 😂 asiyoyenza kwa soccerzela le

#votewithourfeet don't renew our tickets..

Who in their right mind would give their money to Mike Ashley under the current circumstances?

who says any ''new'' owners would keep RAFA,, new owners are renowned for wanting their own man

If you ever wonder why we are some of the most hated fans in the country; look no further than this thread. Pure negativity about things they don’t even know about or understand. There’s a clear reason the club haven’t discussed this takeover or Rafa’s contract, I think it’s a positive sign as opposed to the club stringing us along with fake facts trying to sell tickets. It’s hardly a ploy by the club if the club haven’t said anything; doesn’t take a genius to work that out now does it? We have here a hungry, talented player who’s talking about the fixtures and how he can’t wait to play for Newcastle; something we haven’t had in a long time. No wonder players can’t wait to get out of here. It’s toxic. And don’t buy the “only been toxic in the current ownership” craic either by the way. There’s fans on here who will have been the ones who hounded out Sir Bobby cause they weren’t happy with Top 4 and wanted league titles, just remember that. Support the team⚪️⚫️

No new players rafa hasnt signed new contract,silence from club can only speak volumes,

Inside info that Rafa has gone

Not as bad as last year

What exactly are we going to build on when fatty is one foul swoop appears to have undone years of hard work.

Always going to have a tough start with Ashley still there

Rafa is gone ? Why do ya think he hasn’t sighed a new contact? We shall see very soon

Bet rafa will be if he gets new contract and we get new owners

Newcastle United building on under the current regime is impossible to do

I'd replace 'buzz' with 'Toxic Atmosphere'.

What exactly are we going to build on when fatty is one foul swoop appears to have undone years of hard work.
