Tranmere Rovers & Cheltenham Town Stare Into The Abyss
It is now forty-three years since Newcastle United last won a major trophy, but last season saw Alan Pardew restore a little pride to the club with a fifth place finish in the Premier League which brought with it the return of European football to St James Park next season. On todays match of the past, though, we are going back to when silverware was just part of life for the supporters of this club, starting with a compilation of highlights from their FA Cup final appearances of 1951, 1952 and 1955. Next up is the second leg of the final of the 1969 Inter-City Fairs Cup against the Hungarian side Ujpest Dozsa. Newcastle had won the first leg bu three goals to nil, before travelling to Budapest for the return match.
Newcastles next appearance in a cup final came five years later and, while they ended up losing the 1974 FA Cup final to Liverpool, their run included one of the most infamous matches of the mid-1970s, a We then skip forward to the start of the 1980s, and extended highlights of a Second Division match from October 1982 against Rotherham United. Newcastle failed to win promotion at the end of that season, but they did a year later, and the next video is a compilation of goals from the season that turned out to be Kevin Keegans last as a player. Last but not least, we go forward to the 1992/93 season, another season that ended with the club winning promotion, this time to the Premier League, and an away match against Brentford.
