Brilliant Newcastle Youngsters Hammer West Ham 3-0

It was a great performance tonight from the Newcastle youngsters at Upton Park as they beat West Ham 3-0.

Brad Inman – fantastic 3rd goal for Newcastle tonight

That takes the lads through to the last eight of the FA Youth Cup, and they will face Crystal Palace or Hull City at home on Saturday, 13th February.

Newcastle got off to a good start tonight, and were ahead after just 14 minutes.

Newcastle got the first corner of the match and it was hit along the ground to the near post by Ryan McGorrigan.

The Hammers seemed surprised by the delivery, and full-back Filip Modelski could only prod the ball forward to a delighted Jeff Henderson, who blasted the ball home from just six yards out.

The game remained 1-0 in the Magpies’ favor up the break.

But then 2 goals in 3 minutes from Newcastle, early in the second half, seemed to put the tie beyond doubt.

On 49 minutes Phil Airey added to his two-goal tally from the last round, with another excellent goal.

Phil was put through by a long through ball, and the striker left Paco Craig for dead, and burst through to coolly slide the ball beyond the on-rushing goalkeeper, Loveday, from 12 yards out.

Then on 52 minutes, James Tavernier, 25 yards from goal, laid the ball off to Brad Inman, and the Australian born Scottish U21 International, hit an unbelievable shot into the bottom corner of the net to make it 3-0.

West Ham had a penalty on 86 minutes, when Phil Airey handled to stop the ball which was headed for goal, but Eoin Wearen hit a weak shot, which the impressive Jak Alnwick saved easily.

It wasn’t West Ham’s night – but make no mistake this was a brilliant performance from the Newcastle youngsters.

The lads are  now through to the last eight of the famous FA Youth Cup.

This was a wonderful attacking performance from the Newcastle youngsters, and a brilliant victory in London.

Well done the Newcastle youngsters.

    I Voted “No Opinion” simple fact he’s kept his face out the way and let the club play football.

    He let Hughton bring in some players for which Hughton will be judged on not Ashley.

    His popularity on Tyneside is rock bottom so i’d like him or Del Boy to come out and talk to fans about club matters I.E Short & Long term plans.
    They have nothing to lose do they?.

    Must watch the highlights on the web. The bairns’ and reserves matches are usually more entertaining than the first team ones anyway. I just wish more people would make the effort to attend the home matches.

    So – quarter-finals. Silverware a distinct possibility!

    As for the poll, I wish it was in two parts:

    1. Do I approve of the way Ashley IS RUNNING (note present tense – if it’d been “HAS BEEN RUNNING” it’s be different): Yes. Some don’t like it, but it’s the only way to go these days. Shame it took so long to stop cocking it all up.

    2. Do I approve of Ashley as a person? No. He’s a despicable, amoral crook.

    So that would be a footie club owner, then.
