Toon Fans Hail Their Legend!

The goalkeeper walked out for the third round tie at the KC Stadium to amazing scenes from the away end, even though he has asked to talk to the three clubs who want to sign him this transfer window.

Man City lead the chase, and being the 'money bags' club in world football, they can get whoever they want.

Given, after 11 excellent years at Newcastle, received a huge ovation from the visiting fans despite a statement from his representative this week suggesting he was considering his future ... and north London sides Arsenal and Spurs are trying to tempt him to North London.

Given is now cup-tied, and we all wonder if he will be between the sticks for the replay at St James' Park a week come Wednesday.

It was a difficult fixture for the Toon, but we live to fight another day.
Hull thought they had scored when a Michael Turner header rebounded off the woodwork but referee Chris Foy ruled it had not crossed the line.

Newcastle had their opportunities too with Michael Owen missing two good chances.
