"TOON 'BOOT' COBBLERS OOT OF CUP!"
The Toon took on lowly Northampton Toon @ St James' last neet with a much changed team from the one that got a draw at 'The Theatre of Muppets' on Saturday. (Anly Haidara and Perez who started against Man U were in the startin' line up this time!)
We were oot of the blocks aalmost immediately and took the lead in the 3rd minute when Florian Thourvin swivelled a shot into the back of the net from a Haidara cross to give us the lead @ The Leazes End!
Just 5 minutes later and wor lead waz doubled when De Jong fired home from a Thourvin centre and a cricket score looked on the cards!---But this IZ NUFC! and just a minute later Tiote gave away a needless 'handbaall' penalty @ The Gallowgate End, which Richards dispatched past resorve goalie Karl Darlow in The Toon goal!
3 goals in the forst 10 minutes and wor hearts were racin' az wor visitors went for an equaliser az wor defence waz at sixes and sevens for a brief period!
Thourvin then put the baall in the net again for us--anly for it to be ruled offside by the linesmans flag!
We restored wor 2 goal lead orly in the 2nd half through Janmaat and again Thourvin supplied the baall!

Grandson Jamie who waz watchin' hiz 3rd forst team game waz 'ower the moon' az this waz the forst time he had ever seen us win!
(Hiz previous 2 were a 2-2 draw with Hull and a 1-0 defeat by The Borussia Munchin'gladbachs in a pre season friendly!)
A satisfactory performance (apart from the daft penalty) and the draw for the next roond waz again kind to us with anothaa home tie against Championship side Sheff Wed!
