Newcastle United Football Club (also known as Magpies or The Toon,) is an English professional association football club based in Newcastle upon Tyne, Tyne and Wear. 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, since the merger. Newcastle United has the eighth highest total of major honors won by an English club. They have a fierce local rivalry with Sunderland, and the two clubs have engaged in the Tyne–Wear derby since 1898.
Kevin Keegan took Newcastle to two consecutive runners-up finishes in the league in 1995–96 and 1996–97, coming very close to winning the title in the former season. This success was in part due to the talent of players like David Ginola, Les Ferdinand and Alan Shearer, who was signed on 30 July 1996 for a then world record fee of £15 million. We thought it would be a good idea to let the fans in on some Newcastle apps compatible with the iPhone, iPad and iPod Touch.

With new season underway do you think Newcastle have what it takes to break into the top four and enter that European place? Maybe they need to get some big names to challenge the likes of Barcelona again. With temperamental players like Joey Barton it might be worth focusing on some the younger players to shine.
