Are The Smogs Set To Be Top Dogs Of North-East?

Last updated : 02 October 2018 By Footy Mad - Editor

Nothing is going right for Rafa in the league ... and don't even get us started on our Cup hopes.

We crashed out of the League Cup almost before it even started, as we left the competition almost to cheers of happiness from Mike Ashley.

Why should he be interested in a competition that only pays £3m to the winner, when you can get £119m to get relegated.

Meanwhile .. over in Smogland ...Middlesbrough boss Tony Pulis will face his former club Crystal Palace at the Riverside in the same competition ... and sees his side second in the Championship.

Could we be facing the Mackems next season ... and Boro replace us in the Premier League?

Tell you what ... don't rule it out.

The ties are to be played the week commencing October 29.

Fourth round draw
Man City vs Fulham
Bournemouth vs Norwich
Arsenal vs Blackpool
Leicester vs Everton/Southampton
West Ham vs Tottenham
Middlesbrough vs Crystal Palace
Chelsea vs Derby
Burton vs Nottingham Forest
