A poor opening run of only two wins in the opening thirteen league outings saw Newcastle in deep problems at the wrong end of the table, with the team suffering from the worst injury crisis in the club's history, forcing Roeder to recruit players from the youth academy, notably David Edgar and Matty Pattison. Fan protestations against the club's board came following a mid-November defeat against Sheffield United with the club staring relegation in the face.
The return of senior players saw the club fight back up the league, but a 5-1 FA Cup hammering at home to Championship side Birmingham City left fans and players stunned. A UEFA Cup campaign following success in the Intertoto Cup had looked like the club's form of salvation, but the team crashed out to an agonising defeat on away goals at AZ Alkmaar.
Following that the team ran out of steam, and manager Glenn Roeder resigned the week before the end of the season with the team left in mid-table obscurity. Things, however, did seem to look up with new manager Sam Allardyce and wealthy new owners confirmed in the off season.
