Vultures Choose FA Cup-Tie For TV

9 years ago

To nobody’s great surprise, it has been announced today that Newcastle United’s FA Cup trip to the south coast will be moved for TV.

The third round tie against Brighton will be still played on Saturday 5th January but at the earlier kick-off of 12.30 and will be screened on ITV1.

After last season’s surrender it would have been a shock if the TV vultures had decided to ignore our match.

They will obviously be praying for a repeat of our exit and of course in the next month we’ll be treated to a few dozen replays of the goal that knocked us out, in amongst the references to Hereford.

One small ironic saving grace is that with Yohan Cabaye out injured, the angle based on some kind of grudge return following his trial by TV sending off last season, will be minimised.

The romance of the cup…!
