From the cover: “Newcastle United is one of Britain’s leading football clubs with a long, proud and colourful history full of incident, triumph, disappointment and no little controversy. From humble beginnings over 120 years ago and a struggle for support on Victorian Tyneside, Newcastle United has grown into a European giant with a fervent and loyal following of over 50,000 Toon Army supporters. They were Edwardian Britain’s foremost side, became Championship and FA Cup victors between the wars and celebrated Wembley Kings during the 1950s. European success followed as did a glittering procession of star players and big-name managers who kept United one of football’s headliners. The Essential History of Newcastle United gives all the essential ingredients of the Magpies’ vibrant past - chronicling their eventful history, the club’s many celebrities, all the facts and figures with a comprehensive run-down — match-by-match, season-by-season and player-by-player — of every game played by Newcastle United.”
