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.
After the dizzy heights of a fourth-placed finish in the Premier League and Champions League qualification last term, Newcastle have endured a difficult season so far, with injuries to an already thin squad taking their toll with the Magpies already out of Europe and hovering around mid-table in the league.
