Welcome one and all to this evenings game against Manchester United hosted at St James’ Park.
It’s always a tough ask to beat Manchester United but, as ever, fans will be hopeful of causing an upset in front of a packed out St James’ Park.
The Sky TV cameras are in town tonight and will be broadcasting the match around the globe, which is great if you’re going to the pub or sitting at home watching on Sky, but not so great if you can’t do either. Luckily these days all you need is an internet connection, which you probably have if you’re reading this! Fortunately the chances of catching a stream this evening are pretty high.

There isn’t too much else for me to add really that hasn’t already been said. Now it’s over to the most important part – the match. Team news will appear below as and when it becomes available and hopefully we’ll be naming a winning team against the Red Devils. We’ll see!
Howay the lads!
