Jim Smith’s arrogance leads him to write ‘when we’ve disposed of Watford’ in his programme notes. He had a gut feeling and it was wrong. Also Newcastle were obviously so confident of winning that nowhere in the programme is there anything about the possibility of a Third Replay.
- Our opening goal was scored from our very first touch of the ball. Newcastle kicked off and passed the ball back to keeper Dave Beasant who handled it outside the area. Neil Redfearn scored from the free kick.
