It’s safe to say Newcastle United will be glad to see the back of the 2012-13 season.
Despite an impressive run to the quarter-final of the Europa League, during which they claimed the scalp of Russian giants Anzhi Makhachkala, the Magpies have endured a poor domestic campaign which eventually ended in a 16th place finish.
It’s hard to put a positive spin on such a poor season but every club has an end of season awards ceremony, so here is a look at who may come out of the season with some shreds of credit. The awards are entirely based on personal opinion, so there will be a number of candidates for each award. Feel free to comment and get involved with what you think.
