Lasses progress in the cup, potential transfers identified, reaction to Chelsea win


Women win again

  • Goals from Georgia Gibson and Becky Ferguson were enough to seal a 2-1 victory at Hull City in the Women's FA Cup
  • Victory sees the Lasses progress to the second round of the competition
  • Ferguson's winner came 14 minutes into extra-time after the match finished 1-1
  • Elsewhere, the Women's development team also got a win, triumphing 1-0 over Chorley after Sharna Wilkinson scored directly from a corner
  • Howay the Lasses!

Amateur scouting identifies midfield targets

  • Twitter user Sanjay has used data and opinion to source Eddie Howe's new number 6
  • Among the suggestions are Real Sociedad's Martin Zubimendi, Sporting Lisbon's Manuel Ugarte and Borussia Monchengladbach's Kouadio Kone
  • See the full thread below for analysis of how the boss deploys his midfielders and the method behind the suggestions
  • The account is well worth a follow for other Newcastle analysis


"It was the emotion of the game wasn't it? Me and Kai had a few run ins before and it's just part and parcel of the game. It can get the better of you at the times. But when you are in that environment and clinging on in stoppage time and wanting to win the game these things happen."
  • The local lad also talked to The Athletic about missing out on the England squad, bemoaning the fact he never got the chance to impress Southgate face-to-face

Reaction to the win

  • Alan Shearer:
Get the f… in @NUFC another very impressive performance, making Chelsea look very very average.
"The players do not seem inhibited by the apparent pressure. If anything, they appear comfortable with their transformed expectation levels and new found top-four status."
"They are an extremely balanced outfit, who boast the joint-meanest defence - with a Premier League-high seven clean sheets - and the third-most potent attack."
  • Mark Douglas:
Third at the World Cup break is incredible for #nufc. Making good teams look ordinary. Ownership group will sense the opportunity presented by this incredible start...
  • TalkSPORT folks discuss Newcastle's title credentials
  • Craig Hope vlog after the game
  • Hope again, this time on Sky Sports News earlier today (go on, Craig!):
