Newcastle – known as The Magpies – are currently the only Premier League side from the North-East of England. They play their home matches at St. James Park and are famous for having one of the most devoted fan bases in the country.
Founded in 1892, the club gained admittance to the football league a year later. At the end of the century, were playing in the First Division. They were one of the dominant sides in England is the period prior to the First World War, winning the league title on three occasions, but their only championship came in 1927. They have also enjoyed FA Cup success, wining it on six occasions. In fact, their last major trophy win came in 1969 when they won the Inter-City Fairs Cup.
In recent years the club has struggled and they have suffered several relegations, on each occasion getting back to the Premier League at the first time of asking.
Money is an issue for the team, when make Newcastle predictions, needs to be a factor in to the equation. The club owner is a wealthy businessman, Mike Ashley, who is deeply unpopular with the fans because he has refused to invest in the club substantially. Rumours of new owners frequently appear in the press but, like most Newcastle tips, these often prove to be false.
However, the lack of finance means that Newcastle betting tips usually focus on whether the club will relegate or will manage to survive for another season. Arguably their biggest asset is their manager, Rafa Benitez. As long as the Spaniard stays at the club, they should have enough to stay at the top level.
