Newcastle Match Postponed
News of a Newcastle match postponed as again the ironies strike us of FA Cup success elsewhere.
With Everton beating Swansea on Sunday, it means that they will have the inconvenience of having to play for a place in the FA Cup semi-final on the weekend of March 8/9, rather than the scheduled trip to St.James’ Park. As yet there is no new date arranged.
Again ironically, the match against the blue half of Merseyside was the only one of interest to the TV planners in the last round of broadcasted games announced, although when eventually played, almost certainly midweek, there is every chance it will still be beamed out as has happened previously on these occasions.
As for Newcastle’s fans and players, yet another free weekend will be another stark reminder of how empty the second half of a season can be when you opt out of the cup competitions as early as possible.
