Toon Fans DEMAND A Reaction!

Newcastle boss Glenn Roeder has ordered his players to put this FA Cup humiliation to bed and beat West Ham on Saturday.

But the Toon Army saw the heaviest home defeat in years and DEMAND a reaction from their players AND the chairman. Freddy Shepherd has promised players in the January transfer window and with 18 days gone ... and only 13 days to go ... the chairman had better act on his word.

Roeder: "We have got to ring-fence this game tonight - just in the way that Liverpool had to when they were smacked 6-3 by a very, very young Arsenal team.

"They came out and won the following game away to Watford 3-0. We need that sort of reaction - and that is what I am looking for, a reaction.

"That is what I will get; I will get a reaction that I want.

"No two games are alike, so if West Ham think they are coming up here for an easy ride, be careful - because they are not."
