Pope; Trippier, Schär, Botman, Burn; Joelinton, Bruno, Willock; Almiron, Isak, Maxi.

That's what I'm thinking and would have even if we'd won comfortably today.

That was 2 weeks on from me turning 3. :bluestar:

It’s the last time I went to Soton away that game.  Coach didn’t get back to Newcastle until about 6am - went straight to work with a change of clothes and did a rudimentary set of ablutions in the work bogs, still no doubt lifting of stale lager and tabs.  Happy days

Going to be interesting to see how we approach this game 

 

Do we just play it safe and think let's keep it level and make it a one off tie at home or do we just go for it and try to get a comprehensive result in the first leg?

 

I suspect Howe will go for it and then adjust accordingly if we did go behind

Surely the last game we played is going to be in their minds. We weren’t even that good and we’re missing Wilson and Isak, yet still pumped them 1-4. Early goal and the flood gates could open as they’ll be pushing on to score and we will be able to pick them off on the break.

Yuge game.

 

I'm feeling quite emotional about it all really, we don't normally do semi finals.

 

A draw won't be a disaster but howay let's do em.

I think almost all our 0-0 draws if we’d scored early would have been 3+ goal wins as we’d just dominate the teams.

Be really interesting how Soton approach this. They caused us problems early on in the league game but we then picked them off.

 

This game could be anything. Absolutely vital we avoid conceding early.

That FA Cup game makes me feel so fucking old

 

Pahars and Beattie playing :lol: 

 

That third goal was something else, top form Dyer was such a joy. Love Bobby's very muted facial expression after Dyer's first sitting there just looking like he's thinking "Who's the fucking Daddy? I'm the fucking Daddy"

Two legs against these man. If we don’t advance it would be an absolute disaster. I’ve full faith in Eddie and the lads. Let’s go win the first leg 2-0.

Think we'll see Isak in for Wilson and otherwise unchanged from yesterday.

 

The lack of scoring recently will be a worry but we just look so solid and I think Howe will be happy to take our chances in another tight game where we look more likely to score and if it ends 0-0 it's not a bad result by any means.
