This article covers the squad and match results for Newcastle United's 1999-2000 season.

During the season, English football (soccer) club Newcastle United competed in the FA Premier League (known as the FA Carling Premiership for sponsorship reasons), finishing in 11th place. The season is notable for the resignation of Ruud Gullit early in the season, with Bobby Robson replacing him as manager.

Season summary

Four defeats from Newcastle's first five Premiership fixtures prompted the resignation of manager Ruud Gullit after one year in charge.[1] He had fallen out with Alan Shearer[2] and dropped the striker, who was absent in an embarrassing 2-1 loss to arch-rivals Sunderland.[3]

Veteran ex-England manager and self-confessed Geordie, Bobby Robson was brought in to replace Gullit - making Robson, at 66, the oldest manager in the league.[4] His first home game in charge was particularly memorable and impressive: an 8–0 victory over Sheffield Wednesday, which remains the club's record Premier League home win.[5][6] Striker Alan Shearer scored five of the goals in that game.

Robson ensured Newcastle's survival in the Premiership. This was achieved with stylish attacking football and with Lee and Shearer back onside. Robson consolidated a fading Newcastle side, and they finished a secure 11th in the final table. More impressively, they were the division's third-highest scoring team with 63 goals from 38 games.
