Liverpool 4-3 Newcastle
Newcastle 4-3 Leicester
Newcastle 2-0 Southampton
Brighton 2-2 Newcastle

Newcastle have finished 8th with 55 points. All in all, a disappointing season, but it has been one of transition, and the squad is much improved now compared to the start of the season.

Perez finished as league top scorer again, with 32 goals.

Gray broke the Premier League assist record, registering a total of 21 assists.

The board has given me £60M transfer budget for the summer, so I'll see where I can reinforce the squad.
Great budget that tbf will be interesting to see how you invest in the side

Crystal Palace 4-4 Newcastle
Newcastle 2-0 Norwich

The Capital One Cup run was once again terrible, as we lost 1-0 at home to Wigan.

Perez got a 4 month injury after the Brighton game. And we have the compacted winter fixtures to deal with in the meantime.

Nevertheless, after 11 games we are 3rd placed with 19 points.

A club takeover has happened, which means plenty more money! Will hopefully be able to get some marquee signings done in the summer to get us ready for out title push.

Got knocked out of the Europa League in the 2nd knockout round by Leverkusen after a 4-3 aggregate loss. I had beaten Braga 5-2 on aggregate in the 1st knockout round.

Got knocked out of the FA Cup after a 2-1 loss away at Blackburn in the 5th round.

I have a whopping £77M transfer budget, so expect some marquee signings.

Sold:
Trippier £4M to Norwich
Deulofeu £5M to Everton
Hector £4M to Leverkusen

England won the 2020 EUROs, beating Belgium 2-1 in the final, with Butland, Dier, Chambers, Gray, Wilshere, Barkley and Wilson all featuring!

Signed:
Leroy Sane £33M from Schalke
Alberto Moreno £20M from Liverpool
Matteo Fedele £12M from Roma

The 20/21 Newcastle squad:
1 Jack Butland
2 Steven Moreira
3 Alberto Moreno
4 James McCarthy
5 Eric Dier
6 Samuel Umtiti
7 Demarai Gray
8 Jack Wilshere
9 Callum Wilson
10 Ayoze Perez

15 Nathan Redmond
16 Will Hughes
17 Nacer Chadli
18 Malang Sarr
19 Joe Gomez
20 Ross Barkley
21 Calum Chambers
22 Matteo Fedele

Eric Dier continues in his role as club captain, with Ayoze Perez promoted to vice captain.

Europa League:
To get into the Europa League group stage, we first had to play Rangers in the 3rd qualifying round, which we won 7-1 on aggregate. Then we had to do a playoff against Qarabag, which we won 5-0 on aggregate.
My group has Napoli, Twente and Athens.
Group results:
Twente 0-4 Newcastle
Newcastle 5-0 Athens
Napoli 1-2 Newcastle
Newcastle 2-3 Napoli

That last game was unbelievably unlucky for us. Hit the woodwork so many times, no way did we deserve to lose that one.

Capital One Cup results:
Arsenal 1-3 Newcastle
Fulham 1-3 Newcastle

Premier League results:
Swansea 2-3 Newcastle
Newcastle 4-4 West Ham
Hull 1-3 Newcastle
Newcastle 3-0 Aston Villa
Man Utd 1-1 Newcastle
Newcastle 1-0 Tottenham
Chelsea 4-2 Newcastle
Newcastle 4-1 Everton
Newcastle 3-0 Brighton
Norwich 0-4 Newcastle

Perez became the club's all time top goalscorer after the Everton match.

Umtiti got a 4 month injury after the Napoli away win, which is a devastating blow.

So overall, a great start. Only 2 losses out of 20 games, and we're top of the league. Can't complain about that!
