Stadium St James Park
Time at Club:
Newcastle United are well accustomed to changing managers, with a whole host of gaffers passing in-and-out of the St James' exit door in recent times. The man currently at the helm is Rafa Benitez who replaced the sacked Steve McClaren in March 2016.
The former Real Madrid charged with keeping the Toon in the Premier League, but despite an improvement in results, Newcastle were relegated down to the Championship. The Spaniard, who had a relegation clause in his contract, was widely expected to leave, but showed his loyalty by signing a three-year contrat with the club.
Newcastle have won four league titles and six FA Cups since their foundation in 1892, but they've not managed to hoist any major silverware since the 1955 FA Cup. The Magpies famously came close to winning the Premier League, under Kevin Keegan, in both 1995/96 and 1996/97, only to miss out to Man Utd on both occasions.
Newcastle United have reaped 5 wins in the last 10 games, beating Aston Villa, Wolverhampton Wanderers, Rotherham United, Birmingham City and Brentford. 3 draws against Norwich City, Queens Park Rangers and Birmingham City and defeats to Oxford United and Blackburn Rovers has seen them score 17 at an average of 1.7 goals per game while shipping 11.
