1955 was the last time Newcastle won a trophy of note (Sorry the Intertoto Cup does not count) when the Magpies lifted the FA Cup.
However, with Nottingham Forest up next for Newcastle in the second round of the Carabao Cup, perhaps now is the time to grab a ManBet X Bonus code on the magpies to finally end 63-years of hurt.
We take a look at Newcastle’s second round opponents and see whether it should be plain sailing or more cup misery.
What have they won?
There can be no arguments here, like it or not but with two European Cups to their name (modern day Champions League), Forest are an iconic club when it comes to silverware.
They have also claimed two FA Cups, one top flight league title and remarkably four League Cups with the most recent coming during the 1989/90 season.
Former manager Brian Clough is the stuff of legend, but it is Newcastle who boast the richer top-flight pedigree during the Premier League as Forest have only contested five Premier seasons since its inception in 1992 and have not played in the top division this millennium (the club were relegated during the 98/99 season).
Where are they now?
For the last six seasons, Forest have been a club firmly rooted to the bottom half of England’s second tier, the Championship.
2012/13 was the last time the Tricky Trees ended a campaign inside the top ten and that was with an eighth place.
Since then, the club came dangerously low to dropping back to the third tier for the second time this millennium after ending the 2016/17 season one place above the relegation zone.
After four games this season, Forest are unbeaten with one win and four draws leaving them eighth in the table.
Who’s the gaffer?
Former Middlesbrough manager Aitor Karanka is the man at the helm and brings a wealth of experience with him.
That experience has proved useful after taking the over the Forest job in January and guiding the team to safety thanks to five wins and seven draws in the second half of last season.
Players to watch out for
A trip to the City ground is never an easy thing and the Magpies will have to be wary if progression is on the mind.
Algerian Hillal Soudani has netted two goals in three games since his summer switch from Dinamo Zagreb and will be the main source of attacking threat whilst former Manchester City goalkeeper Costel Pantilimon is likely to be between the sticks.
