Steve Nicol is not surprised at all with Newcastle's promotion under Rafa Benitez, who's reputation continues to grow.

Newcastle have achieved promotion to the Premier League at the first attempt, after Rafa Benitez guided them through a tricky season in the Championship.

They were expected to dominate the division, but ultimately found things a little tougher going and will, in all likelihood, finish second behind prospective champions Brighton.

So how have they done it? How different is this Newcastle team to the one that has played in the Premier League previously?

The key to Premier League promotion? Find a style that works and stick to it

Newcastle are a Premier League veteran, and thanks to Rafa Benitez, they're close to a return.

Back in September, it seemed as if a wearying and familiar pattern would repeat itself. Garry Monk didn't get off to a good start at Leeds, and with the team in the bottom three of the Championship before a 2-1 win over Blackburn, the vultures were circling.

Xisco Jimenez has been at his new Asian club for less than nine months, but he's already achieved more than during a miserable five years in England. One goal in 11 Newcastle United appearances, across three different competitions between 2008 and 2013, saw the Spaniard regularly shipped out on-loan and named on more than one worst-ever list.

His £5.7 million signing at St James' Park was seen as a graphic example of the excesses of the dysfunctional era when Dennis Wise was the club's executive...

Newcastle troll Aston Villa's Henri Lansbury on Twitter after own goal

Newcastle comfortably saw off Aston Villa to go top of the Championship on Monday night, cruising to a straightforward 2-0 victory at St James' Park.

Villa were a massive 30 points behind their opponents going into the fixture, with an own goal from new signing Henri Lansbury helping to make sure his side's dismal winless run was duly extended to nine games by the end of the night.

Rather unsportingly, Newcastle's official Twitter account chose to troll Lansbury after the match by posting a photo...
