Newcastle Get Hull City Away in FA Cup 3rd Round

Newcastle United have been drawn against Hull City away in the Third Round of the FA Cup.

Ties will be played on the weekend of January 3/4, 2009.  Wonder who’ll we’ll get in the 4th round.   😀

If gallant Blyth Spartans can beat Bournemouth in their second round replay, they will be drawn against Premier side Blackburn Rovers at home, and they may be able to play that game at St. James’ Park since Newcastle are drawn away.

Sunderland are at home to Bolton Wanderers, who whipped them 4-1 yesterday at the Stadium of Light – interesting match-up.

The full draw, made today at Soho Square this afternoon, is as follows:

Portsmouth v Bristol City
Sheffield Wed v Fulham
Preston v Liverpool
Birmingham v Wolves
West Ham v Barnsley
Middlesbrough v Barrow
Hull City v Newcastle
Hartlepool v Stoke
Chelsea v Southend
Manchester City v Nottingham Forest
Cardiff v Reading
Ipswich v Chesterfield or Droylsden
Charlton v Norwich
West Brom v Peterborough or Tranmere
Torquay v Blackpool
Leyton Orient v Sheffield United
Southampton v Manchester United
Millwall v Carlisle or Crewe
Histon v Swansea
Forest Green Rovers v Derby
QPR v Burnley
Leicester v Crystal Palace
Tottenham v Wigan
Morecambe or Cheltenham v Doncaster
Arsenal v Plymouth
Notts County or Kettering v Eastwood Town
Bournemouth or Blyth Spartans v Blackburn
Macclesfield v Everton
Watford v Scunthorpe
Sunderland v Bolton
Coventry v Kidderminster
Gillingham or Stockport v Aston Villa.

    The alchemist-I admire your optimism, but i think we’d have pulled off something quite unbeleivable if we had an attacking midfielder worthy of walking into the first team signed up by Jan 3rd!

    you never know, by then Viduka and Martins may have 20 goals between them and we have warnock or Riise as lb?

    no time to start judging today but i’ve got this feeling that we’ll do well in the cup!

    maybe we’ll get someone like Arsenal 4th round and win!

    a win against Hull (a) this time last year seamed the easiest thing ever so why cant we do it now?

    obviously they have better players but we still have the same spirit and better players!

    All depends from the momentum; it is the cup, so 1 good day and we go through, but a bad day and we’re out.

    I say chances 50/50

    Obafan-true, i look at the cup like Derby games, all form goes out the window. It depends purely on what happens, on the day. They could spank us, we could spank them, god knows what will happen. I’d take a draw and a replay at SJP though, because i could see is doing them on our own pitch like.

    Its a tough one but i a game tie we can get through maybe a draw at their place and beat at st . james, i have a feeling for a cup run this season with the way we are playing.

    Dan-all you need to do is stand up to stoke strength wise and try not to give away throw in’s, which sounds ridiculous but its true. They’re a one trick pony and i like nothing about their style of football. Their main form of attack is out of their hands. Would love to beat them soundly next weekend.

    I am quite happy about this – the are over achieving at the moment ; and even now their record at home is not exactly great !!

    Bring them on !!

    No matter which team wins the Hull v Newcastle
    cup game I hope it’s taken well with both sets of fans.
    Obviously I want City to win but I have always rooted for Newcasle, especially against southern sides, so lets give it 100%.
    It’s gloves off and get at em.

    I mean this in the most respectful way possible to Hull, but how pathetic is it that most of our replies to that draw have been..CRAP. And we want to be in Europe??

    Come on.

    here we go again, everyones getting excited ‘maybe well…… / we micht get …. in the 4th round’ and the like.

    This will be a tough challenge for use, and i’d take the draw and a replay at home myself, although you know what can happen there, with our nervy, fearful fans.

    If we lose to Hull, which is more than likely the way we are playing, it will be a blessing in disguise. We will have less games to play than those around us; less chance of picking up an injury to vital players; less chance of Red & Yellow cards.

    We dont want or need a cup run this season, everything has to go into staying in the Premier League and avoiding relegation!!!

    I hate to admit it, but I think graeme is right. I’d be gutted if we went out in the 3rd round, but it would mean that we’d be able to concentrate on improving our league position, without any other distractions, so it might not be such a bad thing after all.

    And let’s try and stay a bit positive about this – the way the league table is shaping up at the moment a good string of results could get us close to one of those European qualification places. Wishful thinking maybe, but if I had a choice between a good FA Cup run this year or a UEFA Cup run next year, I know which one I would chose.

    Supporters are not under estimating Hull. They’ve certainly shown they can compete. I still give the edge to NUFC in the FA game. Stamina is critical when competing in the EPL. It’s in the 2nd half of the season that smaller clubs with less conditioning fade. I think NUFC fans need and deserve a good cup run this year.
