Boydie's on this day......

On this day...

Sat 19th Jan 1991

It was a miserable performance at the Den,Millwall but at least it was a victory and better than most displays of late.Gavin Peacock scored the only goal of the game,which helped keep Newcastle out of the relegation zone.The crowd of 11,478 contained only the real hardcore Newcastle diehards.

Sorry no football this day ever....but

In Glasgow Jimmy "Jinky" Smith was born.This player joined Newcastle from Aberbeen in July 1969 and played for the Toon until 1976.Opinions still differ about Smith.Few doubt he was superbly talented,but there were times when he appeared to lack discipline and commitment.

Wed 21st Jan 1976

Newcastle reached the League cup final for the 1st time with a great 3-1win over little tottenham (3-2 on aggregate) at St James' Park with a packed crowd of 49,802.Alan Gowling,Glen Keeley and Geoff Nulty scored the goals,but a late goal from spuds made the crowd suffer before the final whistle.Man City beat Middlesbrough that same night,so it wasn't an all North East final.

Nerwcastle traveled to Chester to beat the local side 3-1 in the 3rd round of the FA cup.Bryan Robson.Ron McGarry and David Craig scored the goals in what was an easy win.Potential banana skin avoided.

Nowt seemed capable of stopping Newcastle these days.The halfback line of Gardner,Veitch and McWilliam were once again in total command as the Toon won their 5th game in a row,disposing of Nots County 4-0 at Trent Bridge.Albert Shepherd scored all 4 goals then astonished everyone by leaving early to catch a train to Bolton,feigning a limp as he went??? Went to sign for Bolton obviously.

Newcastle lost 3-0 ot Notts Forest.The scoreline was not as bad as it might have been,because the game was played in Bermuda and was a friendly as both teams were out of the FA cup.A break in the sun was a welcome to the team as Tyneside was rainy.

Albert Stubbins scored four as Newcastle defeated Sheff Wed 7-1 in a Football League North game at St James' Park.The other goals came from Alec Herd,Jimmy Gordon and Ralph Birkett.Meanwhile news from the war continued to be depressing.Britain was clearly undefeated,but seemingly unable to stop the air raids from the Luftwaffe.
