Fans React To First FA Cup Win In Five Years – Great Shelvey Display

Newcastle fans took to Twitter after the game tonight to celebrate our first win in the FA Cup for five years – yes a full five years.

Shame on us.

And Shelvey looked as though he had never been away and with this player in the team we look so much better – he was terrific but not surprisingly faded a little bit in the second half..

Note to Rafa – please get James McCarthy who can come in if Jonjo is injured or suspended through the end of the season – and please wrap Jonjo in cotton wool – thank you.

It was a very good win tonight for a team that included three of our top youngsters starting in their first game – a game to remember for the youngsters and brave of Rafa to put his trust in them.

    Who is there out there that’s a fringe player who is as good as Shelvey and their current club is willing to let them go to us?

    It’s not a matter of just spending 20 million this window…it’s more about who would you spend that kind of money on who will still get a start when the team is overhauled for the premiership in the summer.

    IMO may as well stick with what we’ve got and keep the team spirit as it is and make the upgrades in the summer.

    I came back on your post on the previous thread. Wish Ed’d slow down a bit but then again, he’ll be buzzing. 🙂

    Not shame on us Ed.

    Shame on the slug and his cronies who implemented it.

    Onwards and Upwards. Why people have to keep looking for the negatives is very strange. Still , there’s nowt as queer as folk. We’re in the next round of the FA cup having played a team with three first timers and we’re top of the league ? We have a transfer kitty surplus and a uefa elite manager to guide us back to the top level. Our owner has given the club permission to spend all proceeds on the team and a full stadium with a big feel good factor running through the city.

    Am I missing something?
