West Brom 4 Newcastle United 2

By Lee Ryder on Jan 23, 10 12:58 PM

NEWCASTLE United crashed out of the FA Cup after going down 4-2 against West Brom.

The Baggies went ahead when Jonas Olsson headed in a corner before Graham Dorrans scored from the spot after Tamas Kadar fouled Roman Bednar.

Andy Carroll's volley gave the Toon fans hope before Ryan Taylor was controversially red carded for a challenge on Jerome Thomas in the box.

The Magpies fans were incensed at the decision, especially as the ref could've given a penalty at the other end just seconds before.

Dorrans scored from the penalty spot and then Thomas tapped in a fourth, with Carroll firing home a late consolation.

The ref needed heavy security and had to be escorted from the pitch as the Toon supporters vented their fury at his performance.

I was at the match, and you can replay my live coverage below.

Some supporters may say that they are glad that the cups are now out the way - let's concentrate on winning the league.
Newcastle's F.A. cup campaigns have always been fought with pride and gusto (untill they get to the final). Hughton would have told the young'ns to go and fill ya boots and send the Baggies packing, prove your worthiness and show your pride. Kadar had a half decent game by the sound of things and Andy Carroll is getting there.
Before Ryan Taylor was wrongly sent off - it took ages for the decision, Newcastle were well on their way for a comeback into this game. Blatently rubbish reffing shafted the cup for Newcastle today.
However, although it seams that Shola has picked up an injury, not having to play so many games now may not be such a bad thing after all.

...Mr Ashley, it is now January 23rd - time to get off your backside and get your fat blankety blank checque book out or get your fat backside out of our club you fat blanker...

I always thought that it would be Mike Ashley who would determine if we were to go up or not.
Get in a couple of quality players in - right side of midfield, defender and forward, for me - and we wil go up.
If Ashley does nothing then our excellent start to the season could be wasted.
Todays game showed that Forest and WBA are on a par with us, and are finding form. We are losing ours.
It's up to you Ashley.


You cant keep diving and cheating and keep expecting to get away with it,we have played you 3 times and outplayed you 3 times,good luck in the play-offs us n boro to go up.boing boing
