Kevin Keegan, during his second spell as manager of Newcastle

The following is a list of Newcastle United Football Club managers and their major honours from the beginning of the club's official managerial records in 1892 to the present day. As of the start of the 2008–09 season, Newcastle United have had 24 full-time and 5 caretaker managers.

The club's longest-serving manager was Stan Seymour, who had three spells managing the club from 1939 to 1958, totalling almost 14 years, while the most successful manager was Joe Harvey, who won five trophies and also had the longest uninterrupted spell as manager, lasting 13 years from 1962 to 1975. All but three of the club's managers - Tom Mather, Norman Smith and Osvaldo Ardiles - have managed the club in the top-flight.

Managerial history[edit]

From 1892 to 1929, the team was selected by a committee whose secretary had the same powers and role as a manager has today.
