  • 24 February 2013: On French Day, the Magpies beat Southampton 4-2, taking the club above the Saints and local rivals Sunderland just four weeks after being seven points behind the Black Cats. There are three French speaking players who score — Morgan Schneiderlin to put the visitors in front after just three minutes; Moussa Sissoko with a tap-in to equalize, having been set up by another Frenchman, Yoan Gouffran; and Yohan Cabaye, who netted a penalty to make it 3-2 to Newcastle. Another French speaking player, Papiss Cissé, scores a wonder strike to make it 2-1 to the hosts.

  • 12 May 2013: Newcastle's survival is mathematically confirmed with a 2-1 win at already relegated QPR, Loic Remy who almost moved to the Magpies opened the scoring from the penalty spot before Hatem Ben Arfa equalized from another penalty, Yoan Gouffran then benefited from Rangers keeper Robert Green's poor clearance to put the Magpies in front. Rob Elliot's red card late on meant Steve Harper could come on, it also meant he'd be able to play his last match against Arsenal
  • 19 May 2013: Newcastle's last match of the season at home to Arsenal sees the Gunners win 1-0 through Laurent Koscielny's volley and confirm their Champions League spot for next season, although this sees Alan Pardew's team drop to 16th they still have the consolation of finishing above local rivals Sunderland.
