Newcastle United Welcome to the FM18 thread for Newcastle United. If you're looking for the thread for previous versions follow the link for FM17 and FM16. After a season in the EFL Championship, Newcastle United are back into the Premier League, back where they belong. A successful season, albeit with some surprises and stutters, managing to lift the title on the final day of the season! Champions! Back into the Premier League Over the next few posts, I'll try to cover the squad, tactics, and transfer targets, and some other stuff that I think will be useful. I'll try not to bore you guys too much! Nicknames; The Magpies, Toon Army Ground ; St James' Park, 52,404 Capacity A stunning stadium, if I do say so myself! Newcastle United Football Club (often abbreviated to NUFC) is an English professional association football club based in Newcastle upon Tyne. The club was founded in 1892 by the merger of Newcastle East End and Newcastle West End, and has played at its current home ground, St James' Park, ever since. The ground was developed into an all-seater stadium in the mid-1990s and now has a capacity of 52,405. The club has been a member of the Premier League for all but three years of the competition's history, and has never dropped below English football's second tier since joining the Football League in 1893. The club has been owned by Mike Ashley since 2007, succeeding long term chairman and owner Sir John Hall. They have won for League Championship titles, 6 FA Cups, and a Charity Shield, as well as the 1969 Inter-Cities Fairs Cup, and the 2006 UEFA Intertoto Cup. Newcastle United has the ninth highest total of trophies won by an English club. The club's most successful era was between 1904 and 1910, where they won three of their First Division titles, and an FA Cup. The club is the 17th richest in the world in terms of annual revenue, generating €169.3m in 2015. Historically the club's highest ranking on that list was in 1999, when they were ranked as the 5th richest, and second in England only to Manchester United. The club were highly successful in the Premier League in the 1990s and early 2000s, but have been mostly struggling since the 2006-07 season, and have been relegated twice, in 2009 and 2016. They have a fierce local rivalry with Sunderland, and the two clubs have engaged in the Tyne–Wear derby since 1898. The club's traditional kit colours are black and white striped shirts, black shorts and black socks. Their traditional crest takes elements of the city coat of arms, which features two grey seahorses. Here are our lovely kits for this season. The black and gold is my personal favourite;
