Next Up Newport
Who said the romance of the FA Cup is dead? I can imagine Newport are preparing to get out the flags and bunting at the end of this month in preparation and dreams of making last weekend. "Giant" killing defeat of Leeds a distant memory.
As yet there is no definitive date (26-29th Jan) for the game or of course a hint of a TV station, but though Newport v Spurs may not be up for tie of the round, it`s one that will have the romance of the cup all over it.
Newport sit mid table in League 2 at the present time and Pochettino and his boys shouldn`t have too great a fear, however, it also represents what should be safe passage into Round 5 and surely we have to consider this competition as a viable route to Silverware, which no doubt the players, manager, board and fans crave equally, even if for slightly differing reasons...
