Newcastle United Football Club (often abbreviated to NUFC) are an English professional association football club based in Newcastle upon Tyne, Tyne and Wear. The club 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, since. The ground was developed into an all-seater stadium in the mid-1990s and now has a capacity of 52,387. The club has been a member of the Premier League for all but two years of the competition's history, and never dropped below the English football's second tier, since joining the Football League in 1893. In 2007, long term chairman and owner Sir John Hall sold his share in the club to Mike Ashley. They have won four League Championship titles and six FA Cups, as well as the 1969 Inter-Cities Fairs Cup and the 2006 UEFA Intertoto Cup. Newcastle United has the eighth highest total of major honours won by an English club.[2] The club's most successful period was between 1904 and 1910, when they won an FA Cup and three of their First Division titles.
They have 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 seahorses.

Its Time

Mike Ashley has called a press conference today outside Sports Direct Arena to announce that Alan Pardew has stepped down as his role of Manager. and after weeks of going through applications for the vacant job Ashley has chose to give talented manager Shane Swanston a chance to bring success back to this club.
Mr Swanston has been handed a 2 year deal and has been promised to be backed in the transfer market as it obvious to see that Newcastle United will need to being in a few players to go to the next level.

my first day on the job was to go through the first team, reserves and Under 18s squads. ill be deciding on player futures during the next few weeks and any news on player departures will be given out once all is complete.
ive asked my scouts to scourer the world for young promising talent that will be placed straight into the under 18's squad in order to help them progress further. but saying that we will also be looking for players to bolster our first team squad
Looking forward to this and hoping it doesn't crash again :P
Good luck with the Toon Army, Mr Toonman.
Newcastle United have stated that four youth players have been released. these players being Ryan McGorrigan , Aidan Grant , Brandon Miele and Steven Logan. these four players were surplus to requirements, we would like to wish them the best for the future

Nile Ranger and Xisco have also been offered out and will be allowed to speak to other clubs . only at the right price

You are really chopping and changing your fringe squad around, aren't you? Leighton Baines was the perfect capture. Who was your first-choice LB before you signed him? I can't think of any left-backs that Newcastle have in real life.
Will be following!

i wouldnt say chopping and changing, im just selling or releasing players that no longer have a future at the club. i have Davide Santon who can play at left back or wingback and also shane ferguson. im hoping leighton baines can prove to be a success
Chairman Mike Ashley was recently in USA to have talks with Chicago Fire chairman Andrew Hauptman to discuss a deal to affiliate the two clubs. after days of discussions the two chairmans have come to an agreement that will benefit both teams financially. The presence of Newcastle United in USA will be a major benefit to all merchandising sales. Newcastle United will also pay Chicago fire an annual fee of $1.41m
Newcastle are very happy to announce the signing of highly rated Midfielder Rasmus Elm for $12.5m. elm is tipped to have a really bright future and the move to Newcastle United is exactly what this players needs in order to progress in his career
When questioned by media what made him make the move to tyneside Elm responded "ive always wanted to test my in the Barclays Premier League, so when the offer came in from Newcastle United i couldnt turn it down"

In other news, we are still trying to offload Xisco but no club has yet to put in an offer for the player,
End of July means end of pre=season and im pretty pleased with some of our results only tasting two defeats during this time
The highlight of preseason would definitly have to be the 1-1 draw with Juventus at Sports Direct Arena. Juve are still one of the top sides in Europe so i was over the moon with the result

so after pre-season me and my backroom staff sat down to discuss tactics and we have come up with this unorthodox formation which we feel will help us play the way we want my stacking the midfield and also offering width for our fullbacks
so far we only have the one tactic we will be using the one tactic but we are currently tinkering with a few more tactics and will be testing them out during the coming season..

Newcastle United's first European Adventure in years is underway as Shane Swanston attended the draw for the fourth round of qualifying for the Europa League. Envious eyes were cast over the draw as there were strong teams either side of the draw

We have managed to draw Red Star Belgrade, with the first leg being at the Sports Direct Arena ill be looking for a good result. because its always hard to play in serbia
Tottenham Hotspur have made an offer for Chieck Tiote worth $12.5m , with $10m to be paid upfront. we have rejected the offer with no hesitation as me and my staff believe that Tiote will play an integral part in Newcastle United's future
There are FAR too many newcastle stories at the moment!!!!!! Someone needs to do something different.
