Cup of little
No matter what brand name it's masqueraded under, there's no
disguising the fact that Newcastle United never been the best of pals with the League
Cup since it got underway in 1960.
Aside from that infamous Tueart overhead kick in 1976, we've never made it
to the final (or even the semi's, come to think of it), so it's with gritted teeth and a sense of civic duty that NUFC.com have documented
the highs and lows, (but mostly the lows) for your viewing delectation.
This is not recommended reading for children.
