Today’s Quarantine Quiz will revolve around Newcastle United and their time in the Premier League. Obviously things are tough for us all, and look like they’ll only get tougher in the coming weeks and months – hopefully these quizzes can help ease some of the boredom, even if it’s just for a few minutes.

Please, stay safe and stay at home.
