After these years of success the results would be less for Newcastle United. The club managed to claim a Premier League title only once (1927), and to win the FA Cup five times. After winning the last FA Cup title in1955 , however, English club Newcastle United has never managed to win a title link.

In 1992 the club slipped even such way that it threatened to be relegated to the Division 3 after it was earlier to the Division 2. To avoid this was in February of that year appointed Kevin Keegan as manager in 1993 , and were promoted back to the Premier League even.

Sam Allardyce was under care of Cameroonian Geremi, who in 2007 came from Chelsea, the captain of Newcastle United as successor to the West Ham to departed Scott Parker.

But despite the departure of coach Glenn Roeder and captain Scott Parker and attract trainer Sam Allardyce Bolton and Chelsea player Geremi as new captain is also the current season 2007/2008 not quite like everyone involved had hoped. As a result, the Board should put all on street trainer Sam Allardyce.

Kevin Keegan, who had success with The Magpies managed to books, was on January 17, 2008 appointed as the successor of Coach Sam Allardyce. However, he was fired again in september.

In contrast to his predecessor Sam Allardyce, Kevin Keegan opted not for Geremi but for Michael Owen as captain of Newcastle United.

Newcastle United was 18th in 2009 with 34 points. It came a point too short on Hull City though was allowed to continue to play in the top division of England, Newcastle dropped to the Championship, and the second highest Division in England.

On april 5, 2010 Newcastle United were promoted back to the Premier League because competitor Nottingham Forest left behind and, as a result, Newcastle United was sure points of a place at the first two, which is necessary for direct promotion. Newcastle won the League also still, and plays it again at the highest level in 2010/2011.

St. James ' Park[Edit]Edit

[30]

See St. James ' Park for the main article on this topic.

[31]St. James ' Park' North-stand.[32]St. James ' Park' East-tribune.

The stadium was first used in 1891 by Newcastle United after the East End and West End were merged. However, it was all play football since 1880.

Up to the beginning of the 90 's there were only small construction works carried out. From 1991 the businessman John Hall invested in the club, which resulted in a stadium capacity of 36,000 places in 1995. But this was still not enough for the deal. There were plans designed for a new stadium in nearby Leazes Park, but the municipality agreed not to roll in. It was therefore decided to extend the stadium by an additional ring to add to the Leazes Stand and the Milburn Stand.

The top ring to the west and North side of the stadium were finished in July 2000, including seats and skyboxes.

The skyboxes on the East Stand were demolished and replaced by seats, whereby the capacity goes up to 52.387 seats.

The cost of enlargement were estimated at about £ 42 million, a bit higher than the cost for a new stadium in Leazes Park. Although it looks like from the outside the stadium four separate stands France, forms the lower rings one large rectangle around the stadiums, while rising above the extensions. It is impossible to expand even further, as there is a road behind Gallowgate End is, and there buildings stand behind the East End.

The club also has the ground around and above the St. James ' Metro Station bought, with any purpose to build a hotel and conference rooms.
