Is the last time we played them competitively 1992/93? (lost at home 1-2 - Blissett).
No, played them a couple of seasons ago in the Championship, when they were promoted.

Not sure but that game their first goal if I can remember was 10 yards offside !
Loved the Keegan song ‘hit him on the head ..... ‘
Plus Marcus Gayle.......through on goal......bursts a tyre, and veers off to the corner flag.....🤣

Oops. So like I said, first time we've played them for, errr, 3 years. :sneakoff:

Last time I've been on a football special.
12th September 2001. Day after the Twin Towers came down. Made for a very sombre mood on the train.

1-1 at full time with Craig Bellamy scoring an extra time hat trick.

I seem to remember Alan Shearer being a bit of a tit too.

It’s stating the bleedin’ obvious, but worth reflecting on for a moment all the same... l’il ol’ Brentford in the quarter final of a proper cup. Not the Freight Rover Leyland DAF Associate Members whatever, but one with Man City, Man U, Spurs, Arsenal, Everton and the Geordies. Crazy how far we’ve come in 10 years :owusu:

And if anyone is interested, here is a full replay of our home game v Newcastle in 1992

In the shed.
BBC suggesting Brentford v Stoke in the semis. Did the old trophy cabinet come across from GP or has MB ordered a new massive one ?

Thanks for posting. Different from the version I remember, which had Brian Moore doing the commentary (it's on a VHS in the loft somewhere). "Can Blissett get in behind them - yes! Brentford are right back in this game!"

Very winnable tie.. Newcastle fans very disillusioned with the club and with Bruce...

It probably is the most winnable tie...Stoke would have just, done a Stoke and tried to keep us out. Everyone else would be very hard but not impossible... Newcastle feels like just the right team to play, a team that lacks quality but would feel the pressure to attack us. Will be a very good cup tie IMO! A shame it's during already the most busy month of the season.

For the first time in my life, I just found myself thinking its feasible we could win a real trophy (ie not one only for non-prem teams).... unlikely for sure but definitely feasible! :)

Need Bruce to stay in the job til December. If so, it's def the most winnable of the teams left

A very effective goal scorer at Championship level.
He may well be, but has the habit of winding up our fans, when he came with Newcastle and West Brom, also has the tendency to fall over rather easily.

All very positive on here, as am I. But we should remember this game is 3 months from now and will be very very difficult.

However, if we do win, I imagine it will be the first major semi final in any of our life times and I assume in our history?

To be honest, I'm not sure who they'd bring in that would make it an undesirable tie... They had Rafa before and they're not getting that stature again! Brucey-ball may be the only real way they'll get enough points this season, and that will probably be a crawl rather than a run.

Great draw at home to one of the weaker teams left in the cup! We will have to be on it ofcourse but a real chance of semi. Wink wink

Liverpool at present
I watched them beat West Ham, tidily. I thought they’d turned a corner, but it’s Moyes who has got his boys working. Still a difficult match, but we’ve got so much more improvement in our squad.
To be honest, I am totally satisfied with doing Fulham and seeing Ghoddos and Said on together, and giving the younger players exposure. A bit more would be nice though. Can’t see us winning the thing.

I wonder where we will be when that game arrives. Its right in the middle of 4 tough games Watford a, Reading h, Cardiff a and Bournemouth h. 5 games in 14 days. If you add Forest and Brizzle it will be 7 games in 21 days. That will test the strength of the squad!! The upside is it will give all the fringe players plenty of game time to keep them happy.

Nope. 2016/17 when they went up (and did the double over us) Before that was the League Cup in 2001 (the day after 9/11) when we lost 4-1 after extra time. We haven't beaten Newcastle since 1948. Well overdue!!

I'm still recovering from the walk to the top of the away end.
Great views along the river to Tynemouth from there... and there's a pitch in view somewhere down there, too!

'MASSIVE' RESULT to quote our manager. Making club history on only our third game at 'NGP.' Roll on the semi-finals. New ingredients this season, player versatility, depth of squad, confidence and a fabulous new ground coupled with great management and leadership and harmony throughout our club. I think we're in for a very exciting season.
