One day they'll stop singing the uncensored version of "you've never won flip all" at us. One glorious day.
It's hard to deny that we're on a bit of a barren run, though, with no new silverware added to the trophy cabinet for over 50 years now.
But when exactly did Newcastle last win a cup? And how many honours does the club have in its history?
A 6-2 aggregate win over Újpesti Dózsa was sealed with a 2-3 win in Budapest, with goals from Moncur himself, Preben Arentoft, and Alan Foggon. Jim Harvey's side had won the first leg 3-0 on Thursday, 29th May in front of 60,000 at St. James', with a Moncur brace and a Jim Scott goal that magical night.
Sadly, we have never won the League Cup (twice runners-up) or any iteration of the European Cup (Champions League) or Cup Winners Cup (Europa Conference League). We haven't ever played in the latter, though.
Newcastle United have won a total of 11 major trophies. Here's the full breakdown:
|First Division (Premier League)||4||1904/05, 1906/07, 1908/09, 1926/27|
|FA Cup||6||1909/10, 1923/24, 1931/32, 1950/51, 1951/52, 1954/55|
|Inter-Cities Fairs Cup (UEFA Cup)||1||1968/69|
The First Division ("old First Division") became the Premier League ahead of the 1992/93 campaign.
Newcastle United have officially played at Wembley Stadium 14 times, as of June 2023. However, we're loathe to count the 1988 Football League Centenary Tournament and the two away games we played against Tottenham Hotspur in 2017/18 and 2018/2019.
Here are the 11 fixtures we consider as the club's "proper" visits to England's national stadium:
|Saturday 26th April 1924||FA Cup (Final)||Aston Villa||Won 2-0|
|Friday 22nd April 1932||FA Cup (Final)||Arsenal||Won 2-1|
|Saturday 28th April 1951||FA Cup (Final)||Blackpool||Won 2-0|
|Saturday 3rd May 1952||FA Cup (Final)||Arsenal||Won 1-0|
|Saturday 7th May 1955||FA Cup (Final)||Manchester City||Won 3-1|
|Sunday 5th May 1974||FA Cup (Final)||Liverpool||Lost 3-0|
|Saturday 28th February 1976||League Cup (Final)||Manchester City||Lost 1-0|
|Sunday 11th August 1996||Charity/Community Shield||Manchester United||Lost 4-0|
|Saturday 16th May 1998||FA Cup (Final)||Arsenal||Lost 2-0|

|Sunday 9th April 2000||FA Cup (Semi-Final)||Chelsea||Lost 2-1|
|Sunday 26th February 2023||League Cup (Final)||Manchester United||Lost 2-0|
Hopefully, there'll be many more visits to come!
