Everton Beaten By Reading In FA Cup

A surprise result tonight in that Everton were knocked out of the FA Cup in round five by Reading at Goodison Park tonight.

David Moyes – not a happy man tonight

Of course Reading had a fine run last season in the same competition when they beat another Merseyside team, Liverpool at Anfield, by a score of 2-1, with the winning goal coming in the very last minute.

Last season Reading went onto the quarter final stage when they were beaten at home 4-2 by Aston Villa, but were ahead 2-0 in that game at the break.

The Everton result is important for Newcastle, because we play Everton at home on Saturday afternoon, and now we’re not sure whether that’s a good result for us or not.

Everton will be all set to put things back on track at St. James’ Park on Saturday, but there again a couple of early goals from Newcastle could start the doubts going again in the Everton players’ minds – so overall it’s probably a good result for Newcastle.

For some reason, Everton are just not the same side as they have been the last few seasons, and keep having their off days, so that’s what we’ll have to hope for on Saturday afternoon, because a Newcastle win would be a great result, and give the side some momentum for the rest of the season.

And we’re sure Alan Pardew, our four analysts, coaches and players will be looking at a tape of the game at Everton tonight, to see how Reading managed to overcome a side that is usually so very hard to beat – anywhere.

And Chelsea beat Manchester United in the league tonight in an-end-to-end game at Stamford Bridge, and Arsenal can now get within a point of the Red Devils, if they win their game in hand. So the Premier league title seems up for grabs again this season.

The Red Devils were ahead 1-0 at the break through an excellent goal from Wayne Rooney, but then a great goal from new boy Brazilian International David Luis, who looked outstanding all night long, and a penalty on 78 minutes from Frank Lampard was enough to resurrect Chelsea’s season.

It seems that any team can beat any other team in the Premier League on any given day this season, so let’s hope we can get the win against Everton on Saturday.

Howay The Lads!!

    Great result for us as this result pretty much ends Everton’s season as they have very little to play for now as they won’t get relegated so hopefully they go through the motions and we take advantage.

    Look chaps, we have lost AC, but we did not have him anyway- we have the best spirit of any team in the prem. This is due to CH but Pards is doing us proud.

    I for one am not worried about any team coming to the toon.

    So what was the score?

    Lots of history but little no nothing about what took place in the game.

    @toonarmy1986: What do you mean we can take advantage? A bad run and they’re looking at relegation – they’re only 3 points from us (4 points from moving up from us) and 5 points from relegation. They have everything to play for this season.

    Wrote this in the post before but it passes more to this one (small mention of Chelski – Man U. game).

    Just watched Fox Chelski – Man U. Chelski got a free kick and Cole took it and missed. The commentator said. “I don’t know how he missed that. He’s had enough target practice this week”.
    I spat my beer out with laughing.

    It’s strange that Everton are having such a poor season as I think they have some very good players. I don’t think the game against them will be easy but one we’re capable of winning.

    I wonder who Pardew will play on the right if Barton isn’t fit. I would like to see Jonas on the right, perhaps Lovenkrands on the left. Best and Ameobi up front or Nolan just behind Best.

    Next year will be a very interesting season as i think there will be 6 teams challenging for top 4 positions then probably about 4 or 5 (Us, Mackems, Everton, Villa, Bolton) Will all be challenging for the Europa league spot, if it becomes available. Now is as hard a time as any to break in to the top 6! Will be interesting to see how we do next year with key players back, Ben Arfa, Gosling(maybe) and new signings. Wouldn’t be too unhappy with top 10 and a cup win (Even if it is the Carling Cup!) That way we are guaranteed Europe and we have eventually won something!

    I would be absolutely delighted if we won the Carling cup next season! Every time I see Martins scoring that goal for Brum in the final I keep imagining it was a Newcastle shirt he did it in!

    Isn’t that THIS season? Nothing stays the same. I think there is no really exceptional team at the moment. Manure need an overhaul in the summer – the weakest squad I can remember. Arsenal – the best attacking side – look fragile still. Chelsea – aging team, again needs 4 or 5 new faces. Liverpool – maybe KD has halted the plummet – but still a really average squad,, that Carroll is a bit of a glorified championship player if you ask me like.

    City will sack Mancini in the summer, Ancelotti probably will leave too. City, Villa and spurs all look more ambitious in the transfer market, but I don’t see why with 3 really smart established signings, plus a couple of up and comers, by us we couldn’t push on for a top 6 spot next season. AS LONG as we stay up of course.

    Hopefully we may see Mr Mourinho back in the prem. Always like to see someone ruffling Fergies feathers and who does it better than him? Also gives a great interview

    Cahill will miss this match too with injury alongside Fellaini. Since they played yesterday with their strongest squad, I would say we are favourites. Wonder how Ireland will fit in… most likely played on the right.

    Everton beat Bolton confortly but lose Reading, who can predict that ? but that’s football. Nothing impossible. Next game against them, hopefully we can win it.

    Cahill, Fellaini definitely out with a possibility Beckford being out as well. hope steven Ireland nets for us on the day as i’ve been wanting him in our squad for years now. we will win this game i think simply because if we shut down Saha they can’t score.

    2 – 1 (Best and Ireland)

    We need to watch out on Saturday!

    Everton are going through a bad period and will be wanting to stop the rot!

    A lot of people will be saying that we are favourites for the three points. This alone is dangerous in itself, we will need to play well to beat them! A 1-1 draw may well be on the cards!

    Looking at the potential Everton team, we really will not have a better chance to do the double over them

    “I don’t know how he missed that. He’s had enough target practice this week”. That’s a gem German.

    And it was nice to see Fergies reastion to instant karma at Chelsea. He’s got the nerve to bleat on about poor refereeing after witnessing the inaction over Rooney’s elbow at the weekend.

    What goes ’round comes ’round?
