Last Season's Performance

Newcastle United's first full season under the ownership of the Public Investment Fund (PIF), and with Eddie Howe in the dugout, could hardly have gone any better, as the club ended the campaign in fourth position and qualified for the Champions League for the first time in 20 years. 

Not only that, but the Magpies also reached the League Cup final - losing out to Manchester United in the Wembley showpiece - and it is fair to say their achievements of 2022/23 were way ahead of what the new owners would have been expecting so early into their reign. 

New signings such as Alexander Isak, Sven Botman and Nick Pope all settled into life on Tyneside quickly, as Newcastle registered the joint-most top-flight points they have accumulated since Kevin Keegan's 'Entertainers' side of the 1995/96 campaign.

This Season's Prospects

Eddie Howe's side will be looking to replicate last season's achievement of qualifying for the Champions League.

Newcastle's strong home form at St James' Park has been key to their recent success, and if they can improve on their points haul away from home they should be set for a good second half of the season.
