Ranked: 11th in Premier League

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.

🗣 Respect lads great job. Shame about the Board though, they need sacking.

Well done nufc but absolutely disgusting that 800 people can't afford to feed themselves including families!


No one can just turn up at a food bank and ask for food. It is the people like Darren Mcpherson who need to educate themselves on food bank use. You have to be given a voucher by your social worker or your doctor or the council etc and this entitles you to THREE DAYS food. I believe you can only claim 3 times over quite a long period of time. Where the hell has your compassion gone. You must be totally morally bankrupt if you begrudge a few tins of food so that people can feed their children. Shame on you!!

Country’s a disgrace, people having to go to food banks while we still give money away to the likes of India who have their own space program 😡

Graeme Wilson anything look familiar hahah?

whats the point in food banks without checks on these people getting free food, cause iv been working in the west end for an housing group doing up house's,and the story's some off them come out with is an joke,e.g they have 3-5 kids but spend there money on tabs,drink & green and keep £20 of there dole money to go to easy street to try and pull,rant over with.

Does the food bank have any prime rib?

god bless that lad🙌🏾

Met him in Asda 2 days after he signed, my son said to him " have a good season" he was very polite & thanked my son. No cameras etc, no press, just him & his family shopping, seemed really nice bloke

Good luck, enjoy Newcastle and hard work is all we ask for

Wait until ASM has completed his NUFC interracting with the public training. Then it will be silence or a cut and paste "we are all united behind the head coach and Ashley is a great guy" soundbite. I give it til November!

He seems very down to earth, good luck to him.

very good to see from the young man - if only the club owner had a bit of the respect for the supporters that Allan shows

Good lad this one !

Love this guy man.

Top lad. All the best kidda

Well done when was the last time a player done this !

Love this man already so honest #normal human

Hes lovely 😊❤️

At last! Seems normal and not stuck up his own backside. Hopefully can rub off on some of his teammates

He is a true man and I think he will become one of our best ever

Likeable guy, hope he scores lots of goals for us

Love that. Don’t get this from players very often anymore

A legend in the making

Good signing much love from Kenya Africa

Could be a big favourite if he performs on the pitch 🤞

Got big potential I think, could of done with him for the Norwich game

If he performs on the pitch then he will easily become a cult hero, seems a good guy

I do hope he doesn't change.

He has the right character hopefully by the end of the season we think his on pitch is as good as his on pitch

He will be the difference I believe At least his heart ♥ is in it

Seems a proper sound guy, lets actually get him fit n in the starting line up now

Remember when we used to queue overnight for tickets..... That's a long long time ago.

Amazing chance to see the toon play for the cheapest price there gonna be all season

Before I buy a ticket can the club confirm that they are taking this competition seriously & will be fielding the first team & not a mixture of first team & fringe players. I look forward to your reply.

No thanks while the fcb runs the show. Ashley Out.
