Newcastle United Football club was formed in 1892 from the merger of Newcastle East End and Newcastle West End. The two clubs that formed the merger had both been originally formed from local cricket teams. Since their formation, Newcastle United has always played at St James Park. They are also known as The Magpies and The Toon and have enjoy fanatical support through good times and bad. After some initially worrying times with financial difficulties and low attendances, the Geordie team developed into one of the most successful English teams in the Edwardian Era, with five FA Cup appearances (but only one win) prior to the start of World War I. In the 1900's the team also one the League title three times. The greatest period for FA Cup success was the 1950's, however, when The Magpies won the cup three times within a five year period. In 1969 the team won the Inter City Fairs Cup, the forerunner of the UEFA Cup. In more recent times the club have endured a roller coaster ride, with a whole host of big name managers such as Kenny Dalglish, Ruud Gullit, Sir Bobby Robson and Kevin Keegan. Sir Bobby took the team to the Champions League, but was fired for failing to qualify for the Champions League a couple of years later.
