Perhaps the biggest underachievers in English football, Newcastle haven’t won any silverware since 1955, but with the influx of Saudi Arabian money to the club, it feels like a matter of time before the lengthy drought is ended.
Indeed, as recently as last season, the first full campaign under the new owners, Newcastle reached the EFL Cup final, their first cup final since 1999.
Progress in the cup competitions was never a priority under the previous ownership of Mike Ashley, with Newcastle winning just 28 of their 56 cup fixtures between 2007 and 2021.
The new regime have made it clear they’re desperate for success; whether that comes in the form of silverware or sustained Champions League football remains to be seen, but if last season was anything to go by, the Magpies will be aiming for the latter stages of the cup competitions.
Though they were dumped out of the FA Cup at the first hurdle by Sheffield Wednesday, Eddie Howe fielded a side containing Sven Botman, Joelinton and Alexander Isak, with Kieran Trippier, Bruno Guimaraes, Joe Willock and Miguel Almiron all appearing from the bench.
And in the EFL Cup, full-strength sides were picked from the fourth round onwards as Newcastle reached the final.
The Champions League is where Howe’s men most certainly have it all to do however, having been drawn in the same group as European heavyweights PSG, Milan and Borussia Dortmund!
Still, it's an opportunity that Howe and his side will be relishing as they bid to make a major mark upon their return to elite European football.
Whilst United will fully understand the difficulties of securing a passage through to the knockout stages of the competition, there is also the carrot of Europa League action if they do indeed miss out on a top two finish, and instead secure third place.
The positive would be it’s a competition they’re more likely to win, and few Toon fans would turn their nose up at a couple of extra European excursions.
Domestically, it’s hard to see past Manchester City for the title, and while a title challenge may be on Newcastle’s horizon, it’s unlikely to come this season as the side get used to their extra commitments, but as far as the cup competitions go, with a reasonable draw, there’s no reason Newcastle can’t go deep in both.
