Date Confirmed For FA Cup Tie


Newcastle have just confirmed the date for the 4th round of the FA Cup if Newcastle manage to beat Blackburn Rovers away next week in the 3rd round replay.

This is the information Newcastle have just released on their website along with Watford FC.

A date has been confirmed for Newcastle United or Blackburn Rovers’ FA Cup fourth-round tie against Watford.

The winners of United’s third round replay at Rovers on Tuesday night will host the Hornets on Saturday, 26th January, with kick-off set for 3pm.

That means that should the Magpies see off Rovers at Ewood Park, they would face Javi Gracia’s men at St. James’ Park.

Further details will be announced in due course.

The question is what kind of team will Rafa field in next week’s replay.

A week tomorrow we have a crucial league game at home to Cardiff City and that’s a must-win game for the club

How Will Newcastle Fare At Chelsea?

    Exactly Lesh.
    None of it makes sense.
    How can ashley say anything about needing investment money as proof, wheres ashleys proof of investment.
    Either sell ; invest in the club to give us atleast a fighting chance, or just fcuk off.
    Ashley just do one man.
    Set up shop just doon the road man.
    The mackems would be happy with you.

    This Online Guy really has had the blog’s trousers down big time.
    Last week he told us that his contact was travelling and uncontactable but promised an update by the end of the week. This week the same crap.
    I mean where in the world is this contact travelling? Antarctica? Outer Mongolia, I mean come on FFS even if he was in Nepal halfway up Everest he would still be reachable by Ham Radio.

    This Guy is taking the P and this was pointed out several weeks ago by a few of us on here , he has fed us a load of pie crust and raised hope and expectation of a takeover disregarding his fellow fans in his narcissistic glory hunt.

    I believe Ash wanted to know how wealthy the new buyer was simply to see if they were backed financially enough to see if it would be worth him sticking an advertising/merchandising clause in any agreement. I am aware only certain companies/brands can be advertised for Champions league games but if that SD sign is still on the roof of the stand !

    Also look what happened in the 90’s with KK….Everyone in the stadium had the latest Toon strip £££££

    The problem with NUFC under ashLIE is that there are no more young ‘uns getting involved and wearing the crest in their hearts. The football is frankly shocking and so they watch exciting games with the likes of the bin dippers citeh etc.

    That blame, and the absolute killing of our club is down to one man. ashLIE.

    I can see where your wealth test idea comes from but if the club’s not believed to be worth what Ashley’s asking, why the hell doesn’t he accept that and drop his asking price?

    I’m seriously coming around to the idea that he’s deliberately running the club down to insolvency but as we don’t own SJP and there are conditions on its use, what’s to be gained by wrecking the club?

    Sorry but can anyone, NY Mag, Bambams, Caulkin or anybody, please help make sense of what Ashley’s game is.

    Micky, I’m not sure that’s true. My kids were excited to go to the Blackburn match and on the way we bumped into 3 of my son’s mates off to the game also, together without being in tow by their parents. That’s the next generation and they weren’t alone.

    @roblen

    My concern would be generating new supporters internationally. I think premier league clubs need that to compete nowadays. And what Ashley is doing must have a negative impact on that.

    So when we eventually get a new owner they’ll have to undo the damage done by Ashley in that front. It will mean less revenue from an international following for the club while it heals

    If we got a sugar daddy it would not be a concern

    Just feeling like I can’t be bothered anymore………the game is on BFBS tomorrow so will probably put it on as my Son likes Chelsea.
    He will get distracted by Lego leaving me there to watch us get beat and feel miserable on a Saturday night – not done that since the days of being made to watch Blind Date lol.

    There lies the problem, i cannot work out what ashley is doing or his plan, its as if he is on a collision course to a brick wall.

    The only possibility is he has made so much money out of us he aint bothered about relegation now, he will pick up at least £100 million even if we are relegated and probably another £100 million fire sale. He could then gloat that we are no longer a pl team.

    I simply cannot understand any of his logic, but i will not accept Kenyon is part of this – he is a football man and would not want to be labelled as part of an organisation that tried to destroy a club as big as ours – in my opinion

    My understanding, based on interminable conversations, is the same as most people, that certainly until very recently, PK has been seeking investors (I know one of the people he approached). Does that make me feel massively confident/enthusiastic about what’s happening? No.

    even if Ashley had said it directly, it doesn’t necessarily mean it’s true. but if it is, maybe this is why Kenyon is struggling. I personally think he’s got whatever amount it is he’s being asked for. if there are three or four parties things will be slowed down as Ashley plays them against each other until he gets what he wants. i just hope it’s sorted by 15th one way or the other to give Rafa some time to buy and save our skins.

    I agree with you,Kenyon has a great reputation within the game,
    surely he knows this is making him look the fool and that years hard work building that reputation and could be reputation tarnished from this deal.
    i just don’t see Kenyon’s end game in letting this current situation continue

    Does your mate have a million pounds…? Surely the reality is unless it was a money no object bidder, nobody buying #NUFC hoping to eventually make profit, is going to buy one of the relegation contenders that could mean the value of their investment halved in only a few months.

    Well, not a mate, & considerably more than that, yes. But this is my concern, too. What can a new owner do short-term? Right now, replace manager (unlikely) or sign players. The time for the latter is running out. Nufc are near foot of the table, so risk increases, value drops.

    You need money to buy it, you need to prove you can afford it, even if paid in instalments and you serious need money to run it, too. The club needs a new owner and new ideas, but it’s desperate for investment, too.

    I’d like to know why Kenyon – no personal fortune, trying to find backers – is not a time waster while Staveley – no personal fortune, trying to find backers – is. Maybe there is more to it that we don’t know. Or maybe there isn’t

    Would anybody accept Kenyon as a part owner with Ashley, I’m sure I read somewhere that Ashley had said ( a few years back) he was looking for investors to plough money into the club.

    Say he sold half of the club 50% to Kenyon so you have two owners but install Kenyon as managing director and let him run the club as it should be.

    Ashley would then take a back seat keep his merchandising contract and advertising and he can then concentrate on his retail empire.

    Just a thought.

    Kenyon really needs to shit or get off the netty.

    So, let’s draw a line under the fakeover (although why a company would spend £500k in doing dd and then NOT bid – unless they found out that there was a massive black hole (highly possible), is beyond me).

    So Chelski away, can we win? we don’t have that bad a history with them to be fair, and they can’t score too well either so….

    We’ll lose 1:0

    Why can I not wake up one morning and read, Newcastle Sold, Ashley gone.

    What I don’t understand if Kenyon is backed by the Rockerfella Group, the group is valued with assets over 18 Billion.

    Here’s an easy fix for any buyers for NUFC, offer Ashley 200 Million, with 25 Million over a six year span, the club has to be in the premiership. That gives Ashley 350 Million.

    Also staying in the prem and most teams getting around 100 Million then that leaves 75 Million we can invest over the next 6 years.

    I don’t know. Maybe he has. But imagine how difficult it would be to get a consortium like that together, with very different investors with (probably) different ideas about what they want, both for themselves and the club.

    It could also be the money people don’t think the deal adds up,
    to many stings
    to many clauses
    not good value at the asking price
    there always has to be wiggle room in a deal like this

    @ Hibbit, no I wouldn’t, but financially I move in different circles. It could work and invested money could be used to run club properly. With Kenyon expertise it would be far better than relying on Charnley.
