    Toon vs Man City

    Obviously I'd like us to win but, if we lose. I won't be that fussed, strangely enough.

    Don't get me wrong, I absolutely love the FA Cup and would love us to win it but it would be the hollowest of victories, don't you think? Be just about right following this basket case of a club if the first domestic trophy in over 60 years was won without a single one of us being able to be there.

    It's all moot anyway as I think they'll batter us.

    Just want the season done and the takeover completed.

    All the excitement of being in the quarter finals has been evaporated by the restrictions over Covid & the lack of empathy by the EPL over the takeover.Such a shame really. I was there at Hillsborough when we beat Burnley & at Old Trafford 98/99 when we stuffed Tottingham.Great days.Hopefully these will return post FCB.

    I'm still pretty excited for it if I'm honest. Let's face it there's not much else to get excited about at the moment. Yeah I think we could be in for a hammering but I'm looking forward to the game nonetheless. Liverpool didn't seem to let the no fans situation bother them when they won the title and I think that would be pretty similar for us lot if we did happen to win the cup. Yes it would be a surreal feeling but we would still be partying.

    Why drop the best keeper in the league? Didn't Watford keep faith with their cup keeper in the final against Man City and concede 6 ?
    Apart from that its a better line up than I expected

    Why drop Dubravka???? Is he blaming him for the Villa goal? Shelvey was in his way and it was a very hard save to make, the speed it came at him at. Wouldn't class it as a rick myself.

    Probably just because he's our 'cup keeper' I agree though Dubravka should be playing now we are at this stage of the competition. Hopefully Darlow has a big game.

    That's what we've got as a squad
    4 changes
    Doesn't fill me with confidence
