Over 11,000 Fans See Magpies Lose 3-0 To Chelsea After Extra Time


For the second year running the Newcastle U18 side were knocked out of the FA Youth Cup at the quarter-final stage by reigning Champions Chelsea, and once again the game was taken into extra time by the Newcastle lads, but Chelsea scored three goals in the extra time to finally win the game 3-0 – but that scoreline was unjust to Newcastle United..

A great crowd tonight for the bairns as you can see

The main news tonight was that the crowd was simply fantastic and 11,664 tunred out at St James’s Park tonight to support the youngsters – the admission was free

Last year at the same stage Newcastle lost 3-2 after extra time,  and Chelsea went on to win the final beating Fulham 7-6 on aggregate in the two-legged final.

Chelsea won a penalty after only 4 minutes of the game tonight, but Freddie Woodman, who made some great saves tonight – saved the penalty.

Newcastle withstood waves of Chelsea attacks in the first half and hung on well , as the score remained 0-0 at the break.

The Newcastle players were applauded off the field at the half by a sizable crowd, after Woodman had looked really good in the Newcastle goal.

The game finished 0-0 after 90 minutes, but after only just four minutes into the extra time Chelsea went ahead when Brown went around Freddie Woodman to put the Blues ahead.

And then five minutes into the second half of extra time and Chelsea went 2-0 up with a goal from Solanke as he burst through and put the ball past Woodman.

A minute before time Abraham scored number three for Chelsea – and it was never a 3-0 game.

If you want to read Lee Ryder’s minute by minute commentary  on the game here it is.

Chelsea have won the FA Youth Cup three times in the last five years and were also losing finalists in 2013, and this is the 6th season in a row they have reached the semi-final stage.

So they have been very dominant and Newcastle have been a bit unlucky to draw them in successive quarter final ties.

    The 11,600 attendance shows the degree of support amongst what was a relatively young crowd. It’s really the likes of Mr Victor Meldew-Tuff who are depressing all things on and off the blog. The sob is a negativista par excellence.

    The result wasn’t unjust at all.

    Chelsea dominated the game, their passing, composure, movement was different class to us.

    I honestly worry if thats the best we have coming through and I would also question who is coaching these guys.

    Honestly it begged belief how lack lustre we looked considering they had 11k fans cheering them on.

    It was like watching a Premier League team against a Sunday league team at times.

    I can’t understand how kids of this age seem to have a total lack of movement. They give the ball and stand still.

    They make the game so much harder for themselves because they simply don’t pass and move.

    Chelsea moved the ball simply across the pitch where as we panicked and just whacked the ball up front hoping Armstrong was going to do the rest.

    No sorry guys but I would safely say that not one of the them (obviously with the exception of Armstrong who already has) will ever see the first team…maybe with the exception of Woodman.

    Not sure who Chelsea’s number 8 was but he is one to watch for the future and the left back also, in fact there were probably 4 or 5 you could say looked a little bit special…….couldn’t say that any of our lot.

    I don’t want to see gaps in the crowd. We actually aren’t that bad. I’d love to see a full house in full voice, right behind the side and rounding on the owner where necessary, supporting the team and pushing the regime.

    Even the kids’s squad lacks the strength that Chelsea have. Or, our coaching’s crap.

    Either way, it all boils down to Ashley running the Club on the cheap!

    As Ed says, the Club’s bring choked to death.

    Could it be that the coaching is not up to the standards of Chelsea?

    And why? Because Ashley’s just paying lip service to developing the Club.

    Anyone have a thought on what’s happened to Sissoko? Seems totally anonymous lately even at CM which is where I thought he’d play best, next to Colback. At this point I’d like to see Abeid and Colback line up in CM for a couple games and see how they pair up.

    He is another sad bucket. What a derpressing personality. Anti everything and that’s when you can understand what the hell he’s trying to say. Is he an anti Semite what with his comment earlier. Your good fun and far better read. Cheers me up rather than the sad geriatric youngsters !!?!

    I’ve been following newcastle for a good few years, since Sir Bobby Robson days, I’ve always had a soft spot for the toon, it’s strange that this club haven’t won anything in years, i mean the fan base is there, fantastic stadium, all we need a decent manager, we don’t ask for much do we.

    I don’t watch cricket, especially test series because they seem like they go on for ever, but one day cricket can be exciting especially if a team have got to get 30 runs from 15 balls.

    What’s happened to Sissoko of late?

    Like a lot of the lads, he’s probably wondering what the hell he’s doing at a club that’s got no direction, ambition and not least a supposed Head Coach that’s clueless.

    He’s pi$$ed off. Wouldn’t anybody with any pride be?

    Hello john and welcome to the blog.

    Shame it’s to just whine about another poster though. And just a thought – if Jesper knows nothing about football, when are you going to mention the subject yourself? Jesper is from Denmark, good English but sometimes doesn’t get the context is all. And his football knowledge us no worse than every other amateur manager on here. Nothing personal, I’m sure you’re a nice person, and as Jesper isn’t around I thought I’d just keep the balance. 😉

    Well I was hoping to drop down from a job in Blakelaw go watch the young uns tonight but of course the job strung me out for 12 hours. Typical. Was hoping to see the the lads shaped up against some good opposition.

    Chelsea dominated for the first 30 minutes and Newcastle couldn’t keep the ball. However, the lads battled throughout and broke down Chelseas best moves. The lads won the second half on points.

    Armstrong looked no better than any of the rest of them and missed a great chance that would have won it. How he gets anywhere near our first team beggars belief. He needs 12 months on loan in league 1. He wouldn’t get in a championship team.

    Rotten, from top to bottom. Hard luck lads, over 90 mins, and well done 11,000 taking advantage of the free tickets. No one can ever doubt that we support this club.

    Cat 1 status ensures 775,000 quid from the FA. Wonga have thrown in 1.5 million. Where’s Fatty’s money?

    There is no top level development at this club. No development at all actually.

    If we look at the season in general, most clubs,including the big guns,have poor & inconsistent season,apart from Chelsea & Southampton.We just are unlucky enough not to take advantage bcoz of various reasons,the main one is several injuries.
    Still hopeful that a good foreign coach will come in the summer and change things and cheer us.I think the next head coach will decide our future.But we still have a lot of work to do in the remaining 13 games and hope JC will not Fxxk us.
    It’s good to have Aarons back but don’t think he will change anything immediately
    But still is useful player and will give us Good option in the attacking front.And hope we don’t suffer another injury in defense.
    Roma are one of those club who have inconsistent season in Europe.They may lose their mgr Garcia.They spent big but couldn’t achieve results as they want to in the last two season. Rudi will be another good chance he may come to us if he resign or something.We still leave in hope regarding our beloved club!!

    I think their number 8 was Charly Musonda. Apparently, Barcelona and Man City tried to sign him but his dad insisted that which ever club he went to had to take his two older brothers as part of the deal. Barca and Man City refused but Chelsea agreed to pay a considerable sum. I agree, he looked superb but there is one of the differences. Chelsea are paying a fortune for young internationals who rarely make it to the first team, not a single Chelsea academy player has become a regular in the first team in the last decade. Where as all of the Newcastle squad tonight came from within 30 miles of Newcastle.
