Brief History Newcastle United
The club was founded in December 1892, and is a combination of the two teams Newcastle East End and Newcastle West End. In the history of the Magpies, they are like giant who often fell asleep. There are several golden periods in their history, which may make them become one with the fanaticism of the greatest teams in England.
The first golden age occurred shortly after the two clubs to join, they triumphed in Division One in the era of the 1900s with three titles in 1905, 1907, and 1909. And in the FA Cup, they entered the final five times between 1905-1911, although only able to win in 1910.
