Newcastle Get Another Home Draw In League Cup

11:01 pm, Tuesday, August 25th, 2015 by Dr. Ed Harrison · 16 Comments

Newcastle have been drawn against Sheffield Wednesday at home in the 3rd round of the League Cup, after successfully getting through the 3rd round with a 4-1 home win over Northampton Town tonight.

Newcastle drew the Owls and Sunderland have drawn Manchester City at home, after they managed to beat Exeter City 6-3 at the Stadium of Light tonight.


Amazingly Tottenham drew Arsenal at White Hart Lane, and other all Premier League ties are Sunderland vs Manchester City, Leicester vs West Ham – and possibly Norwich vs West Brom.

Here’s the full 3rd round draw of the Capital One Cup.

Middlesbrough v Wolverhampton Wanderers
Norwich City v West Bromwich Albion
Hull City v Swansea City
Leicester City v West Ham United
Aston Villa v Birmingham City
Tottenham Hotspur v Arsenal
Manchester United v Ipswich Town
Liverpool v Carlisle United
Crystal Palace v Charlton Athletic
Fulham v Stoke City
Sunderland v Manchester City
Newcastle United v Sheffield Wednesday
Reading v Barnsley or Everton
Preston North End v Bournemouth
Walsall v Chelsea
Milton Keynes Dons v Southampton

If Newcastle win this game, we will be in the round of the last 16 – and one game off reaching the quarter-finals of the competition – which is where we reached last season before going out at Tottenham 4-0.

Comments welcome.

    Scouse Geordie not sure who you have been watching but hadaira delivery is normally terrible as he tries to hit everything first time or when he is running At full pelt. The kid is actually a decent defender IMO so definitely best position is lb. we should have a better lb at the club while he develops but unfortunately that is not the case and we have the useless pass it back or sideways dummett

    Nufc83, not sure why so many people have such a downer on Haidara, he’s a good player, he’s probably been our most consistent player so far this year. 4 games and 4 7/10 ratings from opta. Fullbacks are easy to criticise but its a tough job to do well at both ends of the pitch, especially at his young age. Hopefully he stays free of injury and you will see him flourish with a decent winger in front of him.

    Not a bad little draw there ? Didn’t see the game but thurvan had a lot of assists and a goal So does he look a player? Never seen much of him before. Hot misses though ..

    why no sky highlights?

    James toon

    From previous – Jordan Ferri on the way to SJP?

    Unlikely according to Sports Mole

    Forget opta mate, he has been a bit dire so far. Well v Soton and Swansea he was poor. I think he might be a decent standard in a couple of years but I feel like we need better, our defence just cannot carry somebody.

    hairdryer is not a great defender and he also does not have great control or can take many on without just running past them when someone passes to him ! not to say he’s bad but he’s far from good imo.

    however he knows he must get the ball in the danger area as much as possible and thats what makes him stand head and shoulders above a lot of our players !

    while we mess around keeping the ball back and forward to try find that one pass in a 100 that may put a player in on goal hairdryer just sticks it in the box and says go ahead get on the end of it !

    he’s also improving in his short time here which tbh santon did not !

    i can not wait to see where macca see’s dummet and how he improves him ! good prospect for cb / ok at lb / could be very good at dm / even has a good shot and fairly decent vision so could become an attack minded player !

    Man Utd vs Ipswich is a great fixture.

    Ipswich is too much of a headache for Man Utd, that should be another top team out, if we can keep progressing.

    Just get the feeling, because of the atmosphere, I feel like there’s so much more togetherness at the club, I mean this with everyone, from the players, to the coaches to the fans. I think McClaren is changing us quite a bit, and for the better, in time.

    Blackley & Brownlie here with a view from the East Stand.

    Thauvin was by far and away the man of the match. Worth paying £15 to see his entertaining performance. Word of caution though. The lad has absolutely no right foot and so is limited. I wouldn’t be at all surprised if the opposition soon work him out and nullify him.

    Darlow, not much to do, punched well, kicked badly.
    Lascelles was steady away.
    Janmaat, some good, some bad. Final ball could be better.
    I can’t believe Willo picked up 32 votes. I turn up in a good mood and he quickly drives me to despair.
    Haidara, poor showing.
    Aarons, disappointing. I can see why he’s not playing. Thauvin showed him how to do it.
    Tiote, getting sharper. I couldn’t see the handball. Strange one as under no pressure.
    Perez would be a top player if he knew what to do in front of goal. Showed some good approach work.
    Gouffran, get rid of him.
    De Jong, decent showing, good goal but touch let him down at a couple of vital moments. Not quick or mobile enough for me.
    Colback, one to forget. He’s starting to irritate me with his backward and sideways passes.
