United's FA Youth Cup Quarter Final tie
against Chelsea takes place at SJP this coming Tuesday night. Kickoff
is at 7.05pm and admission is by paying at East
Stand turnstiles. Season tickets/memberships are not valid.
As with other rounds in the competition, a result has
to be achieved on the night - via extra time and a penalty shootout if
necessary. There's no provision for replays.
Newcastle' U18s were granted a blank weekend ahead of the tie, but
Chelsea opted to stage a league game on Friday - losing 0-3 at home to
The Blues have made it to this
stage of the FA Youth Cup thanks to victories over Dartford (4-0) and Sheffield Wednesday
(4-1) at their adopted home of Aldershot. They were then followed by 2-0 success
at Cardiff City.
England U17 striker Dominic Solanke netted three in the win over Dartford
and one in each of the other ties for a Chelsea
side beaten by Norwich City in last year's final.
That came after lifting the trophy in 2010 and 2012.
This will be the second meeting of the two clubs in this competition,
following a Fourth Round tie back in 1999, when United drew 0-0
at Stamford Bridge before running out 2-1 winners in the replay at St. James' Park.
Newcastle's Youth Cup campaign this season began with a 2-1 win at
Barnsley, before a 4-0 home beating of the mackems and a 1-0 victory away to
Adam Armstrong has scored in every round for his total of four goals, while
fellow striker Jonathyn Quinn plundered a hat trick in the derby.

A resounding 4-1 home win

An injury to left back Mitch Hancox gave Fergie his first Championship
start since November. However he was unable to prevent QPR posting a 2-0 win
at St.Andrews, lasting 73 minutes before being replaced.
The hip problem that afflicted Curtis on
his senior debut for Australia on Tuesday ruled him out of
Sunday's Scottish Cup trip to Inverness Caledonian Thistle.
Despite his absence though, the Tangerines roared to a 5-0 victory and now take
their place in the Semi-Final draw. That leaves the tantalising possibility of
a second Cup Final outing for Curtis, following his appearance at Wembley for
Bradford City in last season's League Cup.

interest in this season's FA Vase ended on Saturday, as a goal from ex Magpies
reserve Dennis Knight gave West Auckland a 1-0 Quarter Final win in front of
over 1,000 fans at Dunston UTS.
Down in Leicestershire meanwhile, Newcastle Benfield also bowed out following a
0-1 loss to St.Andrews.
Monday's semi-final draw will be completed by Quarter Final victors
Eastbourne United and Sholing.
From the FA, Thursday:
Newcastle United manager Alan Pardew
has admitted an FA misconduct charge in relation to his sideís game against
Hull City on 1 March 2014.
Pardew was involved in an incident with a
Hull City player in the 72nd minute of this fixture.
He has requested a personal hearing, the
date of which will be set in due course.
Pardew's actual charge is one of improper
conduct and as previously confirmed, "due to the serious violent and/or
aggressive nature of the reported behaviour this case has been designated as
The case will be heard before our next game (Sunday newspaper
reports claim Tuesday) meaning that his ban /deportation / punishment beatings
will get underway at Craven Cottage.
Mike off the mark!
An otherwise unremarkable Tuesday in August
2009 has taken on added significance for Mike Williamson, with each
passing year extending his personal goal drought.
The thirteenth and most recent strike of the defender's career came for Watford
in a 4-2 Championship success against Nottingham Forest at the City Ground over
four years ago, shortly before his move to Tyneside.
Since then there have been near misses, blocks on the line and strikes against
the goal frame - plus two OGs at the other end (in FA Cup ties at Stevenage and
Brighton) ...but that duck remains resolutely unbroken.
In all competitive matches, it's now 128 games since Willo last got on
the scoresheet - all but two of those coming in the colours of Newcastle.
And counting only Premier League appearances for United, Hull marked the 93rd
barren game that Mike has featured in, extending his lead on previous club
rivals Jose Enrique (85), Alan Smith (52) and Peter Ramage (51).
He's still got some way to go if he's claim the all-time NUFC club record
Bobby Cowell (1943-56) 409
Alf Maitland (1924-30) 163
James Nelson (1930-35) 160
Tony Whitson (1906-19) 146
Dave Davidson (1930-37) 145
Andy McCombie (1904-10) 131
Just like the scenes that greeted Bob Moncur and Frank Clark when they
eventually found the net, Willo's long overdue first goal will be celebrated to
(All stats refer to outfield players only, obviously).
Shola in their sights
Before setting off for friendlies in the USA
ahead of their Brazil World Cup campaign, Nigeria are to play a warm-up game
against Scotland at Fulham's Craven Cottage.Premier
Gordon Strachan's side will face the Super Eagles on Wednesday May 28th and Shola
Ameobi will doubtless hope to win another cap, having scored in a 2-2 draw
with Italy at Craven Cottage back in November.
Following another enforced weekend off, Newcastle return to action on Saturday
by the banks of the Thames at Craven Cottage. Kick-off is at 3pm.
All 2,900 tickets for the away section have been sold and the adjacent
"mixed area" is now also a sellout.
Having beaten Aston Villa both home and away, victory over Felix Magath's side
would be their second double of the season - and a remarkable eighth win on
This part of SW6 though hasn't been a happy hunting ground for the club, with
Alan Pardew beaten on all three occasions he's managed us here and United
having lost four in a row since Joey Barton's late penalty conversion stole
three points back in December 2007.
Quite where Pardew will be watching this one remains to be seen, but it won't
be from the visitor's dugout....
NUFC: It's anticipated that Fabricio Coloccini will have returned from
compassionate leave in Argentina, while Davide Santon, Hatem Ben Arfa, Rob
Elliot and Sammy Ameobi are all doubts at this stage due to fitness issues.
Loic Remy returned from international duty with an ankle injury, although he
played on for France after being the victim of a heavy tackle.

Former Magpie Damien Duff won't be involved due to a knee injury, while fellow
midfielder Scott Parker is doubtful with the same ailment.
While United had a two week break between games due to Everton's involvement in the FA Cup, the
bottom -placed Cottagers made it nine Premier League games without a win when
losing 1-3 at Cardiff on Saturday.
That means Fulham have failed to keep a clean sheet in the Premier League in
their last fourteen attempts.
On home turf this season, Fulham have lost ten Premier League games, winning
three and drawing one. It's no great shock to learn also that their goals
conceded at home tally of 31 is by far the worst in the division.
Beating Stoke 1-0 in October, Villa 2-1 in December and West Ham 2-1 on New
Years Day, they were held 1-1 by West Brom back in September.
Since the first day of 2014 though, Fulham have lost four home games in a row,
with the mackems, Southampton, Liverpool and Chelsea all collecting maximum

Curtis Good (Australia)
Named in the starting XI by coach Ange Postecoglou, the Magpies defender made his senior international bow
in a memorable game against Ecuador at Millwall's New Den.
3-0 up at the break, Australia were reduced to ten men soon after when
their goalkeeper was red carded. Good was replaced on 66 minutes with the
Socceroos holding a 3-2 advantage, but Ecuador ultimately won it 4-3.
Reflecting on his debut, Good said:
"You dream about it
your whole life - itís the absolute highlight of my career. I felt so
confident out there. I thought as a unit we were brilliant but at 3-0, you
should never lose a football match - when you go to 10 men itís always hard.
"Itís just unfortunate
circumstances but weíve got to take positives from it. We were brilliant in
the first half and weíve got to build on that.
"I did something to my hip. Hopefully
itís OK. Personally for me having to come off was disappointing.Ē
20 year-old Curtis became the fourth Newcastle player of the Premier League
era to represent Australia, following on from Mark Viduka, Craig Moore and
Loic Remy, Moussa Sissoko (France) Debuchy
was named in the starting XI for a 2-0 win over the Netherlands in Paris,
being replaced three minutes from time. Remy was introduced from the bench after 67
minutes and Sissoko followed on 81 minutes.
Shane Ferguson (Northern Ireland)
A 0-0 draw with Cyprus in Nicosia saw Fergie introduced as a 73rd minute
substitute by coach Michael O'Neill.
Papiss Cisse (Senegal)
It finished 1-1 against Mali in Paris - Cisse featured but failed to
score, reportedly hitting the bar and missing a further chance set up by
ex-Magpie colleague Demba Ba.
Cheick Tiote (Ivory
A 2-2 draw with Belgium
in Brussels saw the Newcastle midfielder play the full game and collect a 91st
minute yellow card.
Shola Ameobi (Nigeria)
A crowd of 68,000 filled the Georgia Dome in the US city of Atlanta to see
the Super Eagles draw 0-0 with Mexico.
The Magpies striker was an unused substitute.
(The Argentina squad for a friendly against Romania in Bucharest
didn't include Fabricio Coloccini, none of United's Dutch trio were
selected for the French game in Paris and injury saw Rob Elliot withdraw from
the Ireland squad for a kickabout against Serbia in Dublin).

Newcastle confirm that they have agreed to concede home advantage in their Northumberland Senior Cup
semi-final tie against Whitley Bay.
Accordingly, the Seahorses will host United U21s at Hillheads on Monday
March 17th. Kickoff is 7.30pm.
This decision was announced following the Northern League's home game against
Crook Town on Monday evening, Magpies coach Peter Beardsley among those
present to witness a 1-1 draw.
Last year's finalists Bay last faced United in the Senior Cup at the same
stage in 2010, running out 3-1 winners over a side including Paul Dummett in
front of 774 fans.
The other semi-final sees Ashington face Blyth
Spartans at Woodhorn Lane on Tuesday March 18th (7.30pm).

United claimed the Sheriff of London Shield in this forerunner of
the Charity Shield, staged at Fulham's Craven Cottage ground.
Corinthians included 'keeper Tom Rowlandson, who had made one appearance for Newcastle in
the previous season.
Founded in 1898 as a meeting of the leading professional and amateur sides, a
dispute between the FA and the amateur sides saw the competition (also known as
the George Dewar Shield) suspended after this game.
Later brief revivals saw the game played in the 1930s and again during the
1960s, with Watford winning a ceremonial restaging in 1983 - against

In commentator speak, the words of Hugh Johns aren't far away from
being our "some people are on the pitch" sound bite.
The facts: Future mackem Ian Bowyer put the Second Division visitors
ahead within 82 seconds. David Craig levelled but Forest led at half
time thanks to Liam O'Kane.
Referee Kew then sparked unrest in the crowd when awarding a penalty at
the Gallowgate End on 59 minutes, Pat Howard being sent off for pushing
the official before George Lyall made it 3-1 from the spot.
That was the signal for angry Newcastle fans to burst out of the Leazes
and invade the pitch, causing the game to be halted and the teams to
leave the field.
It's alleged that Martin O'Neill was one of a couple of Forest players
who took sly whacks as they scarpered - although he denied this when
asked about it many years later.
Offered the chance of an abandonment, Forest players, Directors and
manager Allan Brown were happy to play on and the tie restarted.
What follows is part of Magpies folklore.
1-3 became 2-3 on 78 minutes when McDermott converted a penalty. A crowd
who scented blood roared United on and John Tudor levelled the tie with
a fine diving header with nine minutes remaining.
With fans in an advanced stage of delirium, somehow Bobby Moncur hooked
home a last minute effort to win the game - until Forest protested to
the FA and the Lancaster Gate killjoys annulled the result the following
The tie was restaged at the neutral venue of Goodison Park on March 18th
but ended scoreless, with Newcastle winning the replay at the same venue
1-0 on March 21st thanks to Supermac's goal.
As part of our punishment we were barred from playing FA Cup home games
the following season.
In retrospect the most
remarkable thing about the pitch invasion is how the Leazes enders managed to get
across the clarty pitch in their sta-press trews and chelsea boots - speeding up as
they reached the other end and dived headlong into the Forest fans. The
ringleader got a six month stretch.
Some years later John Tudor recounted the game as follows:
"We would never have won
the game if the fans hadn't run on and the referee taken us to the
dressing-room. We were 3-1 down and 10 men against 11. But, worse, we
couldn't play because Bob Chapman and David Serella had a stranglehold
and I hadn't had a kick but that was because there was no service. Terry
Hibbitt, normally our top provider, was having a stinker. The Forest
pair closed ground so quickly there was no space in which to work.
the tunnel there were whoops of delight from the Forest players. They
thought they had won.
comparison, you could hear a pin drop in our dressing-room - until Joe
Harvey burst in and demanded to know what we were going to do about it.
We decided to gamble and push forward. There was nothing to lose.
let their concentration slip, they thought the job was already done, and
they let us go a bit in midfield after the restart.
struck a hard, low cross from the left and I dived full-length parallel
to the ground and only a couple of feet off it to bullet a header home
for the equaliser.
in the final minute I crossed the ball, Mal headed it down, and who was
there to score but Bob Moncur of all people. It was 4-3."
