Having been left twisting in the wing with no support from the club owner Mike Ashley, Newcastle United relied on the pure genius of one man – former Champions League winner with Liverpool Rafael Benitez – to keep them afloat during the 2018/19 campaign.
The fan favourite, who defied the odds and expectations, pushed the Magpies through with no financial support. The 13th place in the Premier League table can be considered a huge success given the circumstances but the club from the north faces a much bigger challenge in the 2019/20.
Disappointed by the chronic lack of backing and without an occasional tap on the back, Rafa left the club. The arrival of long-lasting Newcastle supporter Steve Bruce looks like a downgrade which, immediately, affected the odds as well. Unsurprisingly, the Magpies are the biggest favourites to be relegated this season with 2.50 betting odds to their name. Those keen on backing them to stay up, though, can do that for the price of 1.53.
Newcastle Key Players
Rafael Benitez was not the only one to leave St James’ Park at the end of the 2018/19. The influential duo Ayoze Perez and Salomon Rondon left for Leicester City and Dalian Yifang, respectively. The fans were devastated but, surprisingly enough, the club did put in some effort to reinforce the squad.
The likes of Allan Saint-Maximin, Joelinton and Jetro Willems are relatively prominent signings who could play an important role for the club. The fans were, however, delighted the most to see Andy Carroll return to the club after eight years. The towering forward is a far cry from the player he’d been in his first stint with the Magpies. As a result, he is nowhere close to the top goalscorer favourites with 501.00 betting odds to his name.
While it might be a while before we see another edition of the Tyne-Wear derby, the matches between Newcastle United and Sunderland are indeed one of the most hotly-contested games in the country. Also called the North East derby, this is a local, inter-city rivalry between the two cities only 12 miles apart.
This particular football match is nothing more than an extension of the rivalry existing since the English Civil War when Newcastle and Sunderland found themselves at the opposing sides during the Jacobite risings.
Heading into the 2019/20 campaign, Newcastle have only one win more than their fiercest rivals. However, with Sunderland dwindling in the Football League One, it might be a while before we see these two lock horns in battle again.
Newcastle United is the byproduct of the merger between Newcastle East End and Newcastle West End from 1892. Despite their most recent decline, the Magpies are widely considered one of the biggest clubs in the country, boasting rich history and tradition.
Newcastle have never dropped below the second-tier of the English football system and boast four league titles – last of which was won in 1926/27. Newcastle have the same number of second division-trophies and no less than six FA Cup titles. As the outright winners of the UEFA Intertoto Cup in 2006, Newcastle United are enjoying a respectable international reputation.
Newcastle have always played their home games at the impressive St James’ Park, which takes over 52,000 people. Interestingly, the Magpies had originally worn red shirts with white shorts. It was in 1894 that Newcastle United introduced their second kit – the black and white version the club is known for today – as their primary colours, mainly to differentiate themselves from either of the two teams Newcastle originated from. Conveniently, these colours put them on an opposite end of the spectrum to their arch-rivals.
