Newcastle Get Blackburn Away In Carling Cup


Newcastle United were drawn away at Blackburn in the 4th round of the Carling Cup.



The draw could have been easier and it could have been a lot harder too, so we’re not complaining.

And Aldershot Town, who we wanted at Newcastle, are drawn at home to Manchester United, so they’ll make a few bob off that game, and even more if  the game takes place at Old Trafford.

The games will be played in the final week of October, and there’s a decent chance that Newcastle can make the quarter finals draw.

The draw in full is as follows:

Wolverhampton Wanderers v Manchester City
Cardiff City v Burnley
Blackburn Rovers v Newcastle United
Arsenal v Bolton Wanderers
Stoke City v Liverpool
Aldershot v Manchester United
Crystal Palace v Southampton
Everton v Chelsea

    Again, mixed feeling about this, sad we’re still not at home.

    good draw as there is a realistic potential for Liverpool, Chelsea and even Man City to get knocked out as they are 3 difficult away draws especially if they risk weakened teams! Also fancy Bolton for a shock as well.

    Guthrie in ahead of Abeid, don’t agree with that one, but oh well, Gosling or Abeid should’ve been ahead imo.
    Happy to see Harper as nr 2, Eliott let 3 goals in against Nottingham, didn’t seem too confident and was caught cold on their second goal.
    Can’t have that.

    Weird how Manure always gets the “weaker” teams, isn’t it?

    Great team! Happy to see no Shola Ameobi! But Gosling deserves to be in the squad! Hope Marveaux will get some time today!

    I’m excited. Closer to the Carling Cup now. Btw according to FM Abeid is a selfish player. Still gonna buy him & train him to be a ST. Use that selfishness to complement him 🙂
