History
  Newcastle United were formed in 1892 following a merger between rivals Newcastle East End and Newcastle West End when the latter hit financial trouble. East End, who were originally named Stanley on formation in 1881, moved across the city and the new club took up residence at St James' Park, the home of West End. The Magpies became giants of the pre-First World War game, earning three league titles and one FA Cup before 1914. With Jackie Milburn carving out legendary status for himself on Tyneside, three FA Cup triumphs in the 1950s gave the supporters reason to celebrate. And the Fairs Cup was secured in 1969 with a 6-2 aggregate victory over Ujpest Dozsa of Hungary. In 1992, with the Toon playing Second Division football, former Magpies hero Kevin Keegan was made manager. His arrival kick-started a revival and his five-year spell saw the club become serious contenders for the FA Premier League title. And Sir Bobby Robson's appointment in 1999 saw the impetus of the Keegan years restored as they enjoyed consecutive top-four finishes in 2002 and 2003.
