It’s been a bumpy ride for Newcastle United fans the last few years.

Relegation from the Premier League. Annihilating the Championship. Mid-table finish in the Premier League. Clinging on for dear life.

No matter how good the players are, some of the most passionate fans in the country have not been treated to a top-division title in the last 86 years. Will the Magpies win a Premier League title in this generation of fans’ lifetime?

Perhaps not if they keep selling their best players (Andy Carroll) and sacking perfectly good managers (Chris Hughton). Luckily, Geordies don’t seem to need much to keep them warm through the harsh Northeast winters.

Now, the club is going through somewhat of a French phase, raiding Ligue 1 for top talent. One thing is certain: it’s never a dull time to be a Newcastle supporter. This year should be no different. Don’t forget, you can watch every Premier League contest live on NBC Sports Network and the NBC Sports Group.

For proper Premier League prep, PST is dropping a series of team previews. Our colleagues with the cameras and microphones are on it, too, working up a  “What you need to know about …” series for each of the 20 clubs. Your best bet: study it all! You can find all the written previews and the video guides here.

    Being a Newcastle fan and Geordie I’m hoping Americans who didn’t know about Newcastle embrace the team, we have the most passionate yet hard done to in the league, it’s a roller coaster ride being a ‘toon’ fan but I wouldn’t swap it for the world. The above video doesn’t show just how passionate we are about our club, visit YouTube and search newcastle utd there are plenty of matches that show why we were called the entertainers!
