Expect lots of references to that famous 1980’s milk advert tonight as Newcastle take on Accrington Stanley in the Carling Cup 2nd round.

I expect a good old-fashioned cup tie tonight. The chance of an upset, non-stop rain, less than glamorous surroundings and TV cameras will all add to the spectacle. In fact it all smacks a little bit of Hereford United all those years back to be honest.

It is the first ever meeting between the two clubs and it will be broadcast on Sky TV, so if any of you guys and girls know of any coverage that you wish to share then please feel free to post a link in the ‘comments’ section below and get involved with the banter.

As ever, this is the place for us all to come together and piss and moan about the match, as we usually do, although hopefully there won’t be much to moan about. (more…)

Kids to get their chance against Accrington.

It looks like Newcastle will be turning to the younger players in the Carling Cup tie against Accrington Stanley on Wedenesday.

Players like Haris Vuckic, Ryan Donaldson and Kazenga Lua Lua among others will get their chance to shine as Chris Hughton rings the changes.

That should please a lot of fans, particularly those fans who want to see more of young Haris Vuckic and to see if he really does live up to the big billing he is currently recieving. Now we know the kids and fringe players will feature think it is fair to say that Newcastle aren’t taking the Carling Cup too seriously again this season. (more…)
