The rarely-seen Newcastle United fans photos from Wembley final v Manchester United in 1999

There were wigs on Wembley Way the last time Newcastle met Manchester United in a major cup final.

A lot has changed since Newcastle United and Manchester United last met in a major cup final.

Both clubs have been through ownership changes during the last 24 years, with the Red Devils reportedly set to go through another after several parties signalled their intention to bid for the 13-time Premier League champions.

Both have been through a whole host of managerial changes and have spent hundreds of millions of pounds in the transfer market. But sadly, from a Newcastle point of view, only one of the clubs has delivered silverware for their supporters to celebrate - although Eddie Howe’s men will hope to change that in Sunday’s Carabao Cup Final against the Red Devils.

Almost a quarter of a century on from their last meeting at the national stadium, we look back at some fan photos of the day the two Uniteds met in the penultimate FA Cup Final to take place at the old Wembley.
