Newcastle Have Drawn Sheffield Wednesday Away In FA Cup



Newcastle have drawn Sheffield Wednesday at Hillsborough for the Third Round of the FA Cup. The Owls are currently third in League One just 3 points behind Plymouth Argyle, who top the division.

The FA Cup third round will take place on the weekend after the trip to Arsenal on January 3rd. It will be the fifth match after the World Cup comes to an end.

Cambridge pulled off a shocker in this competition last year defeating Newcastle 1-0 in the third round. That match served as Kieran Trippier’s debut but was also an impetus to get some more winter deals completed.

Those troublesome days are in the rearview mirror as Eddie Howe sparked a revival in February leading Newcastle to safety. This season has been nothing short of sensational with the club sitting third in the Premier League.

Newcastle are also still alive in the Carabao Cup with Bournemouth coming to St. James’ Park on December 21st. That tie has added significance as it is the first to arrive after the World Cup break.

Which Would You Prefer Newcastle Achieve This Season?

    There you go…the former professional referee on ITV thinks that the defender’s arm was in a ‘natural’ position (I.e. he was breaking his fall), and therefore should not have been a penalty. I agree, similar to the ‘non-penalty’ in the CFC game.

    To be fair, the VAR team have also had a nightmare as the ref originally thought ‘no penalty’, and therefore there was no clear and obvious error

    Fully believe that the referee should need to be explain penalty decisions like in rugby.

    So, the ball is about to go over the goalline for a goal…defender is nutmegged, falls, stops the ball crossing the line… then what?
    Accidental or otherwise, it woulda been a goal… Pen? Goal? Nowt, hand in natural position?

    I want penalty rules that are consistent and so I’m pretty much happy regardless of whether the penalty goes in our favour or against us. If we concede a penalty and it’s obviously a penalty then that’s fine, it’s the fault of our player. Likewise, if we don’t get a penalty because it’s not a penalty then that’s fine too, no matter how much there’s a little sneaky hope the ref makes a mistake and gives it.

    Penalty for me as it stopped Fernandes getting to the ball and through on goal. I don’t care about accidental or unnatural positions. If it stops a chance to score it’s a pen. SIIIIIUUUUUUU

    Assassins… Great post made me chuckle that post. Was it about that little Davy kid that posted on here. That little short arsed fella from Sooth Shields who changed light bulbs working offshore for a living and loved to dance if I remember rightly? Funny little bugger he was. Pest at the same time to some on here.

    Not Davey Fenham, more about Jail changing bulb at the beginning of last thread. Someone put a line up then another and I remembered this one from a sparky I know.

    If they’re in serious financial trouble – simply wait. And you get the club for significantly less.

    (M Ashley has warped my view of the rich)

    Why pay the ‘2 billion’ ?

    They’ll get demoted (again)

    Can’t seem to get enthused about Pulisic. Don’t know why but the likes of Santos has more appeal, perhaps because we’d be buying into potential, like Isak and Kuol.
    Young and gifted alongside the experience of Bruno and Botman is a thrilling prospect

    Chelsea and United States forward Christian Pulisic, 24, is being monitored by Manchester United, Newcastle and Arsenal.

    Newcastle are prepared to make a move for Vasco da Gama’s Brazilian midfielder Andrey Santos, 18, in January.

    Pulsic is not a step change.
    Whereas as Maddison would be a ‘difference maker’

    Pass on Pulisic for me too. They make a big deal about him over here but he’s not going to significantly improve our team. Is he better than Murphy? Aye, but we can do so much better than him. He’s talented for an American player, but we need to be much more ambitious!

    You can be sure that when the investigation opens Pandora’s box that certain EPL clubs who play in Red will be bricking it.
    No coincidence perhaps that the American owners of Man town and Liverpool are looking to sell up , before all is revealed ?

    Managing director Maurizio Arrivabene will remain in his role at Juventis for an interim period while a new board is brought together.

    Agnelli was one of the chief architects of the breakaway plans to form the European Super League in 2021.

    Juve, who are listed on the Italian stock exchange, are being investigated for allegations of presenting false accounting information to investors and producing invoices for non-existent transactions.

    Picture the scene, a dark winter night on a deserted country road. You’re trapped in your overturned car with fuel dripping all over.

    How can this possibly get any worse? 😮

    But what’s that? The sound of another vehicle approaching.

    The car stops and a shadowy figure emerges, the glow of a cigar lights a mysterious face with piercing eyes that burn into your very soul!

    The figure shuffles close enough to whisper a rasping ultimatum as the cigar dangles dangerously close…

    “I want your house and your wife, you can keep the children.”

    Theartfuldodger has no use for children.

    Thought Bruno give away the ball a couple of times when he first came on and one could have ended badly. Bud then he grew into it and was his normal self. Thought he did ok in the end.
    Antony bloke is a greedy player I thought and could have put Bruno in a couple of times. The Junior lad has oodles of talent.
    Didn’t think that was a pen in the Portugal game as his hand was breaking his fall and natural. Didn’t affect the outcome anyway.
    Wouldn’t have been given in UK that’s for sure.

    Looks like all the WC games from now on are the later KOs, meaning 11PM and 3am for me. I hope Southgate doesn’t go for the draw tonight. Especially as if we come second, we are in potentially the hard side of the draw. I Agree on resting players, but don’t bring in Henderson. Give hungry players a chance to claim a Spot like Foden, Wilson, Pope, TAA etc.

    This is a superb article on FIFA (and whisper it Qatari) corruption. The silence on this matter is deafening. Fifa/ Qatar were wise to make sure the narrative was on gay rights by banning tainbows and beer as they can bat that away easily. Shameful most the papers went along with it – probably afraid of losing ad revenue or have dubious Qatari-linked shareholders.

    Seems only the Guardian mention Qatari involvement, but obliquely as if afraid of being sued.
