When Newcastle United crashed out of the FA Cup in Cardiff in April 2005, it was official: the second best-supported club in England and the eleventh richest in the world had completed 50 years without winning a domestic trophy. Since their last success - an FA Cup win in 1955 - no less than thirty-two clubs have won one of the three major prizes in the English game, but not the Magpies. In that half century, they've employed some of the biggest names in world football, yet most of their fanatical supporters have never seen them win a pot. In 2004, Sir Bobby Robson paid the price for failing to bring the holy grail to the Geordie faithful. And in 2006, Graeme Souness was next to go, the 17th manager to try - and fail - to win one of English football's glittering prizes for the longest suffering fans in the land. In Newcastle United: Fifty Years of Hurt, Ged Clarke examines this extraordinary football phenomenon with all the humour you would expect from a disappointed but dedicated United fan. He chronicles the decades of disaster and talks to Newcastle legends such as Peter Beardsley, Les Ferdinand, Jack Charlton, Bob Moncur and Malcolm Macdonald in a bid to discover an explanation for the longest losing streak in top-class football.

This is the full, unofficial and uncensored story of one of the greatest football clubs in the world. It brings to life the sensational early successes of the great Anglo-Scottish team before the First World War and follows the club's successes as Cup giants in the 1950s and European conquerors in the 60s, to the Macdonald and Keegan squads of the 1970s and '80s, to its rebirth in the 1990s and through its trials and tribulations of the first decade of the 21st century.

Newcastle United Season ZERO At the beginning of the 1892-93 season Newcastle West End no longer existed, Newcastle East End had moved across the city into West End's ground, St James's Park, and mid-season changed their name to Newcastle United. This was a season of change, this was "Season ZERO". Having refused a place in the newly formed Football Association League Division 2 it was Newcastle East End's fate to spend one final season in the Northern League along with Darlington, Middlesbrough, Middlesbrough Ironopolis, Sheffield United and Stockton. Newcastle United Season ZERO is the game-by-game account of that season, (1892-93), detailing all the Northern League games, the unfortunate early exit from the FA Cup and the 33 friendlies too. Read all about the six times Newcastle notched up five goals, the three times they scored seven goals and yes, the time they scored eight goals! If you're a fan of Newcastle United then this is a "must have" in your library. If you're a fan of football in general then this book is an invaluable source of reference to the Northern League 1892-93.

Please note that the content of this book primarily consists of articles available from Wikipedia or other free sources online. Pages: 28. Chapters: Brian Johnson, Jimmy Nail, John McCririck, Newcastle United Independent Supporters Association, Newcastle United Supporters Trust, Steve Harmison, Sting (musician), Tony Blair. Excerpt: Anthony Charles Lynton Blair (born 6 May 1953) is a British Labour Party politician who served as the Prime Minister of the United Kingdom from 2 May 1997 to 27 June 2007. He was the Member of Parliament (MP) for Sedgefield from 1983 to 2007 and Leader of the Labour Party from 1994 to 2007. He resigned from all of these positions in June 2007. Blair was elected Leader of the Labour Party in the leadership election of July 1994, following the sudden death of his predecessor, John Smith. Under his leadership, the party used the phrases "New Labour" and "New Socialism" to define its policy, and moved away from its support of state socialism since the 1960s and created a new version of the ethical socialism that was last pursued by Clement Attlee. Critics of Blair claim that "New Labour" did not adhere to socialism as claimed, and that it effectively advocated capitalism. However Blair has criticised capitalism for its claim that wealth would trickle down, saying that "Today that claim seems absurd." Blair subsequently led Labour to a landslide victory in the 1997 general election. At 43 years old, he became the youngest Prime Minister since Lord Liverpool in 1812. In the first years of the New Labour government, Blair's government implemented a number of 1997 manifesto pledges, introducing the minimum wage, Human Rights Act and Freedom of Information Act, and carrying out devolution, establishing the Scottish Parliament, the National Assembly for Wales, and the Northern Ireland Assembly. Blair's role as Prime Minister was particularly visible in foreign and security policy, including in Northern Ireland, where he was involved in the...

Got, Not Got: The Lost World of Newcastle United is an Aladdin's cave of memories and memorabilia, guaranteed to whisk you back to St James' Park's fondly remembered "Golden Age" of mud and magic--as well as a Mags-mad childhood of miniature tabletop games and imaginary, comic-fueled worlds. The book recalls a more innocent era of soccer, lingering longingly over relics from the good old days--Toon stickers and petrol freebies, league ladders, big-match programs, and much more--revisiting lost soccer culture, treasures, and pleasures that are 100 per cent Newcastle United. If you were a Junior Magpie, one of the army of obsessive soccer kids at any time from the Joe Harvey era to the early days of the Premier League, then this is the book to recall the mavericks--Macdonald, Mirandinha, and Gascoigne; Keegan, Quinn, and Waddle--and the marvels of the lost world of soccer .

As Newcastle United Football Club completes fifty years without a major trophy, The Amazing Journey - How Newcastle United Conquered Europe takes a fresh, original look at the Magpies' remarkable achievement of winning the Inter-Cities Fairs Cup in 1969. Sports journalist and translator Matthew Watson-Broughton travelled to eight European countries to interview dozens of footballers who played in this campaign, either for the Black-and-Whites or for one of their six opponents, all of which were expected to beat Joe Harvey's team but were ultimately shattered by Geordie grit, unstoppable performances and spectacular goals. That Newcastle's first-round victims Feyenoord were good enough to become champions of Europe the following year shows the scale of the challenge Harvey's heroes had to overcome. As well as using 100 evocative photos to illustrate each step of the campaign, Matthew tracked down and met many fans, journalists, all of Newcastle's former stars and at least three players from each opposing team, a number of whom were real, international stars. Now, the locally-born author reveals their many fabulous, previously-unpublished stories and opinions in this definitive account of Newcastle United’s least-likely but perhaps greatest-ever triumph.
