Newcastle United – Only 4 Rounds From Wembley!

10 years ago

Newcastle United have soared through to the third round of the League Cup thanks to the success on the field last season.

Along with fellow European competitors Manchester City, Manchester United, Arsenal, Tottenham Hotspur, Chelsea, Newcastle United and Liverpool, Newcastle miss out the second round and so will be only(!) four rounds from the final, what could possibly go wrong!

The newly sponsored and named ‘Capital One Cup’ will see Newcastle play their third round match in the week commencing 24th September.

If there is one competition that should be targeted then surely it is this as with a couple of decent draws you can suddenly be in the two-legged semi final, that is of course unless you are Newcastle United.

Our record in the League Cup is especially abysmal and needs addressing and if the current squad stays together with the odd addition they showed last season that they can give everybody a game.

So put Sunday February 24th 2013 in your diary  on the off chance, just don’t tell your Ma just yet.
