In the 1998–99 season, Newcastle United competed in the FA Premier League (known as the FA Carling Premiership for sponsorship reasons). Newcastle's season was an almost carbon copy of the one before. They finished 13th in the Premiership and lost in the FA Cup final to enter Europe because the winning side had already qualified for the Champions League.

Just after the season started, Kenny Dalglish paid for Newcastle's sub-standard league performances with his job. The task was given to Ruud Gullit to turn things round, but he could not improve on the club's previous league finish of 13th. A dismal league position put them below local rivals Middlesbrough as well as other unfancied sides including Derby County and Sheffield Wednesday.

Season summary

File:Ruud Gullit 2012.jpg| Ruud Gullit A poor start to the 1998/99 season led to Kenny Dalglish being sacked.[1] Ruud Gullit, a trophy winning manager with Chelsea a few years previously, was put in charge.[2] The team again started promisingly, but was knocked out of the Cup Winners' Cup in the first round.

Gullit made some high profile mistakes in the transfer market (notably, Spanish defender Rob Lee, who had been the heartbeat of the team for the previous half decade, and was initially not given a squad number.[3]

Newcastle made it to the 1998–99 FA Cup final, their second final in successive seasons. This time around they were to lose to Manchester United 2-0.[4]

Because the FA Cup winners had already won European qualification, this meant Newcastle reached Europe for the fourth season running: this time the 1999–2000 UEFA Cup, due to the discontinuation of the Cup Winners' Cup.

Gullit resigned shortly after the start of the 1999-2000 season.[5]
