Newcastle United Football Club

The Newcastle United Football Club is otherwise known as The Toon or The Magpies. This club was founded when the two local teams that had been rivals, the Newcastle West End and the Newcastle East End, merged in December of 1892. After uniting, the team achieved continuing success, especially in the 1950s. Newcastle United originally wore red jerseys, but now wear a uniform of black and white stripes during home games and a blue shirt during change games. The Magpies' home stadium is St. James Park, which is the third largest stadium in England. Newcastle United has won four First Division titles, an Inter-Cities Fairs Cup, six FA Cups and a UEFA Intertoto Cup. The Magpies are also the current champions of the Football League Championships.

Newcastle United plays Chelsea on the 28th of November at St. James Park at 1:30 in the afternoon. Chelsea Football Club are one of the top teams in the history of English football and financed by Russian businessmen Roman Ambramovich, have seen success in the Premiership in recent years. Their home color is blue and their away color is black with orange vertical stripes. Coming off the back of some erratic results against Sunderland and Liverpool will want to return to winning ways.

Newcastle Utd vs. Liverpool

Newcastle United will face Liverpool Football Club, also known as The Reds on Saturday, December 11 at 5:30 in the afternoon. Liverpool along with Manchester Utd are considered one of the aristocrats of English football clubs in history, winning eighteen league titles, seven League Cups and seven FA Cups. Played at Newcastle's home stadium, this should be an interesting fixture. Liverpool, like Chelsea will want to return to winning ways after their poorest start to a Premiership or First Division in 18 years.
