Newcastle United Stats & History
In a merger of Newcastle East End and Newcastle West End, Newcastle United FC were founded in 1892. The club joined the Football League soon after, and has never dropped below the second tier. Newcastle have only spent three seasons outside of the Premier League since the league’s inception in 1992. The Magpies have spent over 90 years in the top flight of English soccer.
Newcastle United play in the historic St. James’ Park, which has been used for soccer since 1880. One of the best periods in the club’s history was in the first decade of the 20th century. From 1904 to 1909, Newcastle won three of their four Division One titles. They also won the FA Cup for the first time in 1910. The latest Newcastle league title was in 1927. Meanwhile, they’ve won the FA Cup on five other occasions: 1924, 1932, 1951, 1952 and 1955.
The Newcastle United stats show that the Magpies have won the ninth-most trophies of any English club. Newcastle’s biggest rivals are Sunderland and the match between them is called the Tyne-Wear Derby. Newcastle’s famous black and white stripe kits were introduced in 1894.
Although they’ve had little domestic success since 1955, Newcastle have won two European trophies since. In 1969, their last major trophy, Newcastle defeated Hungarian club Újpesti Dózsa 6-2 in the Inter-Cities Fairs Cup. The Magpies also won the 2006 Intertoto Cup, a since-discontinued, off-season tournament.
Newcastle United FC Team Records
Alan Shearer is the Premier League’s all-time leading goalscorer, and he is a leader in the Newcastle United stats. In 404 appearances for Newcastle between 1996 and 2006, Shearer scored 206 goals.
Despite being relegated in both 2009 and 2016, Newcastle United have enjoyed plenty of Premier League seasons. With the Saudi-backed takeover of the club in 2021, Newcastle brought in a number of high-profile signings. That includes midfielder Bruno Guimaraes and manager Eddie Howe.
Newcastle were in 19th place in 2021-22 after 19 games and were underperforming their EPL odds. After a remarkable uptick in form, only Liverpool, Manchester City and Tottenham won more points in the second half of the season. If you’re looking to bet on Newcastle for the upcoming season, the best betting advice would be to look toward their finish without the big six at +200.
