Under-18s Drawn Away To QPR in FA Youth Cup


News today that Newcastle United Under-18s have been drawn away to Queens Park Rangers in the Fourth Round of the FA Youth Cup.

Richard Money – Newcastle Juniors have 10 wins on the trot

The Newcastle Under-18s had a good 2-1 victory over Oldham Athletic at St. James’ Park on Tuesday evening, with two good opportunist goals from young Kazenga LuaLua, who turned 18 years old yesterday.

A trip to Loftus Road is now the next step on the road to FA Youth Cup glory, with the side in with a fairly decent chance of winning the trophy for the first time since we beat Watford 4-1 in the final in 1985 when Paul Gasgoigne was in the side.

No date has yet been scheduled for the game, but Fourth Round ties must be played by January 17.

QPR beat Bristol City 5-3 after extra time in the Third Round.

    our young players are amazing. give them some good first team runs and im not surprise if we ended up like Arsenal now.

    all we need to do is to recruit some youngsters from barcelona camps, arsenal camps etc.

    i dont think drafting in numerous youngsters at this moment in time would be good for the team. Experience is what we need if we’re going to drag ourselves out of the position we’re in and a run of poor performances could have a longer lasting effect on youngsters confidence who’ve never been thrown into such a situati0n.
    However, if kinnear thinks maybe one or two players such as Lua Lua are ready for the step up, and with our injury problems, there’s no harm in giving him half an hour or so to see how he does. As the article says, his pace and quick feet through the middle could give us a new dimension, something we all think we’ve been severely lacking in the past few years.
    If fitness tests dont go our way and he starts, then all we can do is get right behind him and hope he shows that bright spark he has done when playing for the academy and reserves. who knows, we could get a refreshing change and he could have an excellent game.
    If he does start, its a case of getting behind him, not expecting too much, and (in dreaming a little), maybe considering the scenario of him being able to pull off something a little bit special!
    good luck Kazenga son.

    As I keep saying Lua Lua,Kadar and Ranger are more than ready for our sub’s bench! Just think of the buzz and support these lad’s would get at St James’s if they got a run out! Surely it could only benefit the team with our support and confidence for the boys! Lua Lua is a better right winger than Beye. Kadar is better than Cacapa and Ranger is the best young centre forward we have ever had! If JK has these on the bench against Stoke then we would of won.

    Play them, if they are good enough then they are old enough. 100% effort from Lua Lua is probably 20% more than you will get from Butt with a higher skill level.
