Good morning, everyone.
We are live here.
It is the F A Cup, Newcastle United versus Oxford United this morning.
And I'm going to just share out the link real quick so that other people can join in the fund.
Um, but we will get that link out and we'll get going That All right, we're ready to go.
Okay, so today this morning, Newcastle United versus Oxford United, we're gonna go straight into the team news.
Basically what we have here we've got at home.
Newcastle under Steve Bruce.
They have been better recently, uh, than they were like most of the beginning of the season.
Pretty much doomed, it seemed, But it does look like they have a shot at staying up.
Now they sit 14th in the Premier League and ah, it will be.
It's still an interesting task.
But Steve Bruce has gone for a decently strongside.
Karl Darlow, the change in goal.
No, Martin Dubrovka and ah! Across the back four, Kieran Clark gets a start.
Jamal Lascelles and Fabian Schar in central midfield with an injury to uh Florian Lejeune, the hero against Everton mid week.
And then DeAndre Yedlin starts out on the right? Uh, he has not gotten as many starts out there recently in the center of the park.
We have Sean Long staff who's kind of burst on the scene for Newcastle along with his brother Matt.
But Matt just makes the bench today.
She gets a start.
He came on Ah for ah, for an injury.
Ah, during midweek Nobile Dental lab.
The new signing from Shell CA will get his first ever start for Newcastle at home in front of their fans in the F A Cup and then the front three for Newcastle today.
Miguel Moron, who is in a better run of Goalscoring forum, recently starts as well as Allen's on Luxan Bon, who's an exciting player and delivered the ball in for Isaac Hayden's winner against, um against Chelsea.
Ah, and then Joe Lynton starts up top.
He still chasing more goals for Newcastle United.
We'll see if Joe Linton can can get the job done today.
Oxford United the traveling team.
They will kick off.
They start Simon Eastwood and goal Josh Ruffles, Rob ****ie, Elliot Moore and Sam Long across the back four, their central midfield players, Alex Goran, the Spanish and the Spanish player he is going to start in that defensive midfield spot.
It's actually going to Newcastle who starts the game off Bit bit interesting.
It looked like Oxford was set to kick off.
Newcastle's going to but scoring starts in that in that defensive midfield spot with Shandon Baptiste and Mark Sykes either side of him in that midfield three and then up top, it's going to be Tariq Foe Sue Jamie Mackie, the experienced striker up top and Marcus Brown on.
And that will be the attacking lineup.
Tariq Foe Sue is the main threat for Oxford.
Eight goals already the season in week one and he is their main threat.
Carl Robinson, the Oxford manager, has guided them to sixth in League one but their form recently not ideal since a 41 win and killing him.
They haven't won in three straight in all competitions, but the 39 year old Englishman will look to be getting them back on form and certainly a tie at a Premier League ground is a good way to get things started.
We are underway Oxford United in possession now after Newcastle United started off proceedings and We've played just about the first minute.
Pretty choppy start, but Oxford United looking to get things going here.
It's out on the left wing shut cross came in and it was just beyond the outstretched boot of Jamie Mackie and Oxford United, off to a quick start here.
Believe it was Mark Sykes on the far side.
Who delivered that cross in? Oh, he would have been.
He would have been offside.
Jamie Mackie didn't reach the ball anyways, but it is a warning sign there already for Newcastle United not to take this F A Cup tie for granted against lower league opposition, Oxford will certainly put up a fight.
It's a matter Newcastle.
As we said, they've they've been in battling form.
They've been in good form, unbeaten in five in all competitions and obviously week they Ah, we're able to claw back a two goal deficit in the final two minutes of added time at the end of the game against Everton in what it has to be one of the most Everton performances ever recorded.
Newcastle winning the ball back sandbox.
C'mon, winning it on the far side and then winning a free kick, Sykes the offender there.
Some oxy man growing into a bit of a fan.
Favorite, skillful player.
And he's any was found there by Sykes.
Not to just running off a little bit of a contact injury there, but Newcastle getting things restarted.
That was the injury, and that was that was a blow to Newcastle.
General Williams was was replaced by Matt Richie longball over the top.
Newcastle could be in here, DeAndre Yedlin into the box.
But just a miss controlled by the American wide player not able to bring that one under control, the the run look good.
He may have just been off, but poor punch in the box by DeAndre Yedlin.
And the chance goes.
And I mean, how many times as a zone American fan, how many times have we watched DeAndre Yedlin and thought, you know, physically he can compete with pretty much anybody in the world, but and he can make those runs and get in behind.
But his touch has never really been up to snuff as some mock c'mon wins it back in midfield.
And now it's Longstaff goes to the far post, but his crosses over hit excuse me.
It was definitely all moron who had made that run from midfield.
Carl Robinson pictured with his staff on the bench.
The Oxford United manager.
As we said, uh, prior to the match said that maybe maybe they can't hang quality wise with Newcastle, so they'll have to rely on there hard work.
It's more of a realistic approach to an F A Cup tie, but Oxford United have gotten through some tougher times than this, certainly, and they sit comfortably towards the top of lead one.
But they like to make that jump into the championship, and it's just a matter of whether they could be consistent.
Shandon Baptiste into the center of midfield.
Cameron Brannigan, who will be a familiar, a familiar name.
Too many Liverpool fans not available through injury, as is Ah Ben Woodburn, who's on loan from the I seem currently top of the Premier League, but Ben would burn out injured as his camera brannigan.
So no availability for either of those players today.
Shannon Baptiste, the 21 year old Granada and starting in their place, um, an Oxford youth product.
So it's always nice to see young players getting a shot and he does have a goal into Assistant League one this season.
So certainly, value added in that midfield from Shandon biopsies is Oxford win a throw and the throw comes in a little bit of holding going on key, but and some pinball in the center of midfield.
Mackey chasing this one.
But what sells? Ah and ah yeah, the Cells always able to get that back to Karl Darlow in goal.
And now a little bit of an issue with Joe Lynton as, ah challenge in midfield.
A challenge in midfield has left him with a bit of a cut right above his eye.
It's just Ah, yeah, just the coming together of clash of heads, as they say.
And yeah, Jill Lynton now left worse off from a aerial challenge there and unfortunate that he got that.
He got that cut.
It didn't look great.
But obviously, for those who have spoken about before, head injuries or, you know, cuts tend to bleed a lot more than ah anywhere else.
So there is a penchant for them toe be a little more traumatic than gashes on other parts of the body.
But, um, his he's getting the customary head wrap, um, to bandage up that cut and give him a chance to be able to come back onto the field.
I believe it was Elliot Moore who also challenged for that ball.
And there's a Rob ****ie.
The central defender, 23 year old central defender from Oxford, is receiving treatment himself and actually both players with cuts to the head after that coming together.
So we'll have two players identifiable by their bandages.
Full house at ST James's Park, both the away support and the home support showing up for what should be a classic F A Cup tie.
A Suzy gets back underway after the treatment for these players, and now Rob ****ie with a little bit of a handshake for Joe Lynton, neither neither meeting any anything but both of them coming off with a wound to show for it.
And now both players will wait just to come back onto the field as the referee gets.
Things restarted from the drop in allows both players to re enter the field, so both teams back at full strength if, uh, minus a little bit in terms of this bandage, but chance here for Foa Sue and just over hits.
And I do believe he was actually trying a shot from a narrow angle but never likely to hit the target.
But as I said at the beginning, Tariq Foe Sue is the man in attack for Oxford United and he'll likely be the if there is a threat against this United Newcastle United defense, then it's probably going to come from folks who in that left length, so keep an eye on number 11 in yellow ball up towards chitlins and head away by ****ie this time without the players.
Ah, hitting each other in the head now folks who look to play ball through for Maki.
But it was a good challenge.
Violas, cellos and then it was a very poor challenge.
This could be this could be trouble for Newcastle United.
It was Lascelles who dove in and he's holding his nose as he got caught.
Maybe on the follow through, Lascelles gets a yellow, but he perhaps is a bit lucky to escape.
Ascending off here, he flew into the first challenge, won the ball a little bit of skill and then flew into the second.
I don't know, I I think it's a red.
He slid in just so recklessly.
Are they looking at this in terms of a potential red card situation? Remember the F A Cup a bit? It doesn't appear that they are what sells with cells escaping what would have been a game changing moment for Newcastle United.
But now they are in attack through some mock *****.
Plays it across across the field for looking for Yedlin, who brings it under control.
Then the ball eventually cut out by Oxford United off the toe of Sean Long Staff and Newcastle United have to restart from a throw.
But Lascelles very lucky there.
Um yeah, As I said, f a cup a bit uneven in in terms of the fact that Premier Li grounds have v A r and those ah that aren't set up for via our do not have it in the F A Cup.
So it is Ah, strange rule set.
Um but it is a bit shocking that they haven't reviewed that Lascelles challenge for Ah potential red card incident.
But he does escape with just a yellow tough to play is a centerback for 80 minutes with with the yellow card, but and they'll certainly Oxford United will certainly look to exploit that.
But you won't fly into a challenge such as that, Um, it was so poor and Lascelles a quality center back.
But it was such a poor challenge, and you have to you have to think, Is Oxford United getting forward now? Folks who tried to go past a couple players and Shandon Baptiste was one dispossessed in the end.
Now Joe Lynton turning on the ball from Newcastle.
He's trying to find some Oxy, man, was he in an offside position.
He collects the ball out on the right flank trying to get past.
****ie does cuts it back, and it was Yedlin standing in the middle who couldn't make it the required contact on that cut back.
And it's cleared eventually by Oxford United into touch.
Jamie Mackie screaming for better service this interchange between some Oxy bring Oxford's back line.
Sean Longstaff getting the start today, uh, Maddie Longstaff, his brother or not, it is only on the bench.
Quick throw back in by Newcastle, Marcus Brown chasing back for Oxford, but Matt Richie able to bring it clear down the left hand side finds out Miran, whose dropped fairly deep in that Newcastle midfield, Newcastle playing it around the back.
Then Longstaff finds some mock ***** playing it down the line for Yedlin, who was offside.
Yedlin, having a having chances to influence this game but hasn't hasn't exactly taken them.
Take another look.
Some mock ***** left ****ie for dead and then cut it back.
But Yedlin was always stretching and never really had his body set.
Thio attack that cut back from some mock *****.
But you can see what a dangerous player Alan is on dhe.
How he can impact the game.
Oxford tryingto keep the pressure up.
Marcus Browns want it higher up the field.
Jamie Mackie out to the right, and he went for the 12 with Sykes and they cross their wires and it's behind for Ah Newcastle United goal kick.
The type of situation that Oxford will have to take advantage of if they want to get anything from this match.
You'd expect Newcastle to eventually show that the gap in quality.
But it is important that Oxford United come away with the with a big chance early on because It's so so tough to stay in the game from not two minutes.
That's the lower league side.
Nubile Nobile Mental.
I'm found there in midfield, but ah, a bit of an interesting one because it's a little.
We haven't really called his name much yet.
Having just joined from Shaka brought in is reinforcements for Newcastle is they try toe.
Strengthen their bid for staying in the Premier League is a long ball forward from Oxford towards Brown.
Sipes wins it running.
Was he brought down by Sean Longstaff? He was or no, it was not Richie, but Sykes winning the free kick.
And this will be a dangerous situation for Oxford.
Can they create something from this free kick? I don't know if there's much in it from Matt Richie.
Sykes goes Sykes.
Sykes goes down pretty easily, in my opinion.
Marcus Brown over this free kick, it's out on the right hand flag can.
He whipped this ball in with his right foot.
He does towards the far post, and it's just beyond.
It's just beyond the onrushing Oxford Attackers.
It was a good ball, good shape on it, couldn't quite it was just beyond a believe Elliot Maura at the back post.
Plenty of players attacking it.
Sam Long in there as well, the right back, but could not get a contact on the end of it.
It was Elliot Moore there at the back post, too.
Couldn't quite new to the ball as it crossed through the box, but that was a good opportunity.
And a good delivery from Marcus Brown, right sided attacker to just 23 years old.
And you'll notice, I mean, with the exception of basically Jamie Mackie, everyone in this in this Oxford team is is pretty young.
I mean, Baptiste want one.
Marcus Brown, 22.
Elliot Maur, 22.
Simon Eastwood and Jamie Mackie.
So the keeper and the striker are the two that exceed the ah, the 30 the 30 year mark.
The rest of the team below 30 and a foul there.
Bye, Sykes, this time again on Richie Sykes, the offender, this time again, a bit soft, but paying back the foul immediately from Sykes.
Sykes, soft palate, the other and they have a Richie.
Ah, a bit of a Richie dive at this end, but Matt Richie with his left foot, we we know he's got good delivery.
Good. Shadow them as well.
But he's going to look to deliver this one in towards the penalty area from a deeper position, about 50 yards and ah, cuts it across to the far post, headed back across and headed away in the end.
Marcus Brown bring it under control for Oxford and they're gonna look to hit on the counter.
And it was a ball in behind for foe Sue.
But he was just outside.
Sykes was looking to play him in.
It was very tight, is very tight, but just just offside.
Good decision by the Lightman.
Matt Richie in possession, ball one and 50 50 Challenge challenged by Mackie and just about taking care of. But Lascelles.
Now bring it to the corner challenged by Brown and then Richie able to bring it clear.
Thereby Lascelles in the corner.
And now Joe Lynton, Bring it under control.
Good run here from the Brazilian place.
It in field for Alma Ron and Long staff couldn't quite bring it under control, but gets it back toe some Oxy man who's cutting inside and looking to shoot it would appear, cuts it back.
Longstaff back into the center.
Plenty of players interested appeals for handball against Oxford.
There on the clearance.
It may have bounced up in his own arm, but I don't think there's any intent.
And then the shot comes in from distance.
Mock ***** with the shot but straight into the arms straight into the arms of Simon Eastwood in the Oxford goal.
Played 20 minutes.
Lots of action nearthe goals, but not a lot of action on goal so far in this opening.
Steve Bruce having a conversation with the fourth official? Not really sure if he's asking for them to look at a potential handball, but Kieran Clark rare start, and it does look like Newcastle have gone with the back five.
Probably a five 5234 Howto put a number on it, Richie in that left back spot, Kieran Clark with cells and Shar in the central defensive positions and now Newcastle into an attacking position here.
Staff on the edge of the area might still come for tow Lynton, and it is blocked behind for a corner.
Oh, and he's brought it back. He played advantage.
Longstaff fouled on the edge of the area.
He played advantage as Joe Lynton took the ball into the box and the Brazilian couldn't quite get the angle.
But long staff just filed by Baptiste on the edge of the area.
And this will be an opportunity.
The court has been given, so never mind, they didn't pull it back for a foul, it looks off.
So it would have been harsh on Oxford, but at Richie, from the left hand side, going to deliver this in swinger outswinger.
Excuse me, Oxford.
Just about dealing with it played off of Al Neuron.
But some mock ***** brings it under control, cuts to the byline, gets it into Calderone and then right in front of goal.
And then was there a penalty? Joe Lynton went down.
Newcastle play on, headed in towards the centre by Let's cells but over the bar.
And now it will certainly be a via our situation.
There were a couple of shouts.
It was it was madness.
In the penalty area, it was cut back.
The shot from close range.
Did it come off a hand as some oxygen got to the byline? Albarran whipped it across, The shot came in and Ah, the shot came in.
Did it come off a hand? And while they were claiming for the handball, Joe Linton was he was he fouled there by Josh Ruffles.
And then the header came back in and Lascelles headed over the bar.
Veet are still looking at these incidents.
They've got really two incidents to review the handball and, uh, still waiting.
Well, that is that no penalty for either incident.
And Jamie Mackie, furious with the referee that Joe Linta has not been booked, felt he should have been booked for simulation.
And But it will get restarted with an Oxford United goal kick.
And they survive What is by far the most interest situation of the game.
L Marone bringing the long ball down off the chest and finding some Oxy man.
But it's one backed by Brown, Oxford back in possession and Alex Goran able to put it across to Elliot.
Just 29% of the ball for Oxford United so far, Newcastle stamping their authority on this one in terms of the possession and indeed, they had quite the, uh, quite the chance at that end, Um, that was should it should have opened.
Newcastle scoring Lascelles playing it forward.
Newcastle escaping trouble.
Not Richie ST Maxim on switching the play.
Jeb Lin, with a chance to run at ruffles here, cuts inside instead.
Lays it off to Bentaleb.
Bentaleb off forward towards Joe Lynton.
Lays it off to Yedlin.
He's got He's got long staff outside of them and it's laid off bentaleb now.
Just not quite precise enough as of yet.
Karen Clark and Lascelles exchanging passes, Not not precise enough yet from Newcastle.
And there's another giveaway in midfield.
Oxford able to come away with that one.
Just a little bit of loose passing again.
It's just it's just not quite good enough from the time side.
Club ruffles, cutting it back.
Goran Foe Sue and Baptiste exchanging passes in the center of the field, long trying to go past that Richie.
But this back five proving difficult.
This back five shape proving difficult for Oxford United to deal with just ah very in in their shape in attack is having problems dealing with these wingbacks.
It's a long throw from Oxford comes back in, headed out for another throw for Oxford.
Sam along, the one restarting, trying to find Marcus Brown.
Brown felt he was shoved, but he's just planted out for a Newcastle throw.
So not quite not quite the quality that Austria united, but again the the overload on the wings for Newcastle United is proven difficult for Oxford to deal with is now a foul in midfield on Longstaff and You Castle able to restart.
And again the threat has been from Newcastle.
They've started a strong lineup.
Um, it's really just injuries that have kept them from naming certain players.
But Newcastle, certainly not shirking the F A Cup because you'd expect the team, you know in a relegation scrap to potentially say, Let's just let's get let's get through this, Um, and keep our games down.
Newcastle United had to play a replay to get here.
Um and so they are.
They've played quite a few games recently.
They are suffering from some injuries and ah, the one digital Willems is is certainly a blow for Newcastle, but looking good in this one and certainly starting a strong attack to try to overpower this Oxford United Club that currently plies their trade in league one decent heights for a club of Oxford stature.
As this balls rolled through, Jamie Mackie was chasing that one.
Played out behind for a throw by Bobby and Shar Oxford Throw, played and feel for sites has been probably the most influential midfield player for so far, at least in attacking sense, but hasn't quite gotten it right.
Well, the last, uh, the F A Cup games that have called previously, um, have burst into life, Um, after a certain certain moments so we'll see what it takes to get this one going.
But one can only hope that it reaches the heights of the Tranmere Watford tie at Vic Ridge Road.
That was one of the most incredible games that I've watched ever.
Um, what alone? As ah has a league League, uh, one side stormed back from a three goal deficit against Premier Li opposition.
So one can only hope that the next 60 minutes hold that type of action.
But the 1st 30 have been pretty, pretty dull affair? Not gonna.
Well, it's been it's been entertaining in the sense that there's been plenty of of decent play, at least in the midfield, and and then you know a little bit in attack.
It's Sam Long goes down there under the challenge.
Little bit of, ah, potential head injury referee.
Just tracking on this one.
It was Richie who challenged, went straight into a long eight.
He kept his eyes toward the ball, but he knew exactly what he was doing.
It was just a just a hip check of long there on the right hand side for Oxford and, yeah, the opening half hour.
Not providing any goals, but the threat has been there.
Newcastle, certainly the better, Better side in that respect.
But it just takes the one moment if they get readyto restart, play.
And if you guys were in the chat, Um, I know I'm bad about as I'm watching the game of pretty bad.
I gotta find a better setup.
I'm pretty bad about checking in on the chat, but I'll certainly check in on the chat at halftime and we'll see.
We'll see what you guys were talking about.
Um, but either way, don't don't be afraid to drop something in there, and, uh, and I'll get to it eventually, I just Ah, while I'm watching the game, I I get distracted easily, so I tryto try to stay focused on the action.
Supposes cut in infield here tries to play one, too, with Mackey mostly trying to bring it down in the box and Yedlin doing just enough foa sue pressure rises and wins the ball back.
And that feast, just with a Miss Control the young Granat in the er International.
I just miss controls and plays it out, as I said Baptiste in Oxford Youth product and just shows the reward for coming through the academy system and getting to get involved in ah, in a tie like this.
As Oxford win, eh? Throw here foe to doing just enoughto maintain possession for the use as their as they're known.
Sorry about that.
Oxford keeping possession here and maybe just trying to settle things down a little bit, really have only seated the one decent chance to Newcastle so far.
So it has to be sent workmanlike performance and a good one from Oxford so far, Baptiste, this time doing enough to win a throw.
Four Oxford rather than giving the ball way as he did last time Throw comes into focus.
Ooh, trying to turn away from a couple of Newcastle players.
But just find stopped East, then the ball's one back and played out to some Oxy man who's come out to the right hand side.
He goes past Goran, but a good tackle by Elliot Moore and now Oxford trying to hit on the break in the ball was all wrong from from the back, looking for Marcus Brown over the top, and it went into the waiting arms of Karl Darlow and Gold.
But that is the type of opportunity the Oxford will have to take better advantage of.
Is this longball over the top might find Joe Lynton in the box.
He does well to bring it under control.
Lays it off this on boxing man.
Long stuff from distance comes off the back side of Sykes and straight Tufo Sue before, so I'm not able to control it.
Albarran wins it back.
Some moxie about Salmeron.
All moron out on the right hand side cuts it back.
Shar on the edge of the area, I believe, ventured forward, but Oxford do well to win it off his toe and then ****ie gives it away.
Some Oxy man goes again.
Ruffles just ableto edge him out, but he gets it back.
Some Oxy man and crossed into the center headed behind by ****ie, had to stretch for that one, just adjusting the bandages.
He really had to stretch to get his head on that and put it behind for a Newcastle corner.
Second corner of the game for Newcastle.
Not Richie looking to deliver this one again and out swinger from the left hand side.
Everybody in the box for Newcastle headed away and Sykes chips it clear.
And now folks who will be able to chase this one and rolls it through Brown, interested and able to get there.
He's got a runner in the center, if he can find him.
But he's taking Ah, he was taking on Yedlin out there on the right hand side and just lost control.
That counter was an opportunity for Oxford, and they just couldn't quite create anything out of it.
Giveaway, though in midfield by Newcastle.
Oxford, not able to turn that into a counter, groans from the crowd, though, as as Newcastle gave that away, the home supporters getting a little frustrated that they haven't stamped.
Uh, they've stamped their authority on the game in terms of possession, but that they haven't taken advantage of the Gulf in quality between these two sides.
And you have to think, too, as a Newcastle fan.
There's a bit of a a bit and nerves that the longer you let a team like this hang around that that one opportunity will present itself and you could find yourself out of the cup.
That's just the nature of the knockout format, and indeed in single elimination.
But Brown here going against Yedlin, just just delayed too much.
And, ah, it allowed help to arrive.
But Miss Control, thereby Yedlin on the right hand side and becoming a bit of a theme throw comes back in from Oxford, flicked on.
But folks, you can't get there.
L'm Iran, running away from Baptiste.
Baptiste did really well to win it back and then fouled in midfield.
There should share was the one who stepped up in, gave him the track in Bentaleb, involved in as well in the foul.
Really well done.
Yeah, it was it was share stepping up.
I believe but Oxford United restart quickly from the free kick ball roll through and it was Baptiste who had made the under lapping run there from central midfield.
It was a really good idea.
The ball through from Foe Sue, just a bit over hit and behind for a Newcastle goal kick.
But the spaces there for Oxford they just have to find the right quality on the past toe actually exploit the space in Newcastle.
Attacking back the other way.
Matt Richie down the left hand side, Kieran Clark has gotten forward, but his attempt to go past an Oxford defender doesn't quite work out.
Jamie Mackie asked to chase this long ball forward and can't get there.
The 34 year old Jamie Mackie.
You might recognize the name spent some time at q p R.
Has been all over England, Um, just goals in League one so far this season as Jill Lynton heads to the sideline because he's gone issues with the head wound still still bleeding.
It'll be interesting to see if he can keep playing into the second half or if he will require additional medical treatment and need to come off any any type of Stitch obviously is going toe preclude him from the remainder of the game.
But he is to the sideline to get it dealt with and one of those unfortunate accidental injuries and certainly won't keep him out of more than the action today.
I couldn't imagine because there is the winter break or the February break.
I guess the Premier League has instituted, so there will be a bit of ah, time off.
Angela Linton will likely be back, but it'll be interesting to see if he can persevere in this one.
As Yedlin has to chase another line.
Ball forward does enough to keep it in, cuts it back to all Miran long staff on the edge of the area across the sound Mach ***** running out a defender but cut up by Sykes, well done there by the young midfielder.
But some Oxy mine back onto it past a couple of players, good shot in the end from Sam Oxymoron.
Had Eastwood stretching Eastwood able to tip it around the post Samak cement such a threat, dribbling from those wide areas such a good run and technically so good and keeping the ball in his toes, going past players.
He got the shot off well and it was headed to that left left hand.
Corner couldn't quite get the power on it to get it past Eastwood.
As the corner comes in, Joe Linton got his head to it.
Who is back on the field with a new bandage and able to play this ball back and keep Newcastle in possession? Yedlin looks for a long switch, fine state Maxie man, but his touch for the first time, pretty much all game lets him down, and it's into it into touch for a Nostra united throat.
Another look at this run just so good from some moxie about it, and he's got He's got the pace, but he's got such technical ability as well.
Goes past players with ease.
Oxford up to play it all the way back from the throw into their goalkeeper just to try toe again.
Maintain possession under the caution a little bit.
As they say, Um and I wanna give themselves a little breathing space chasing the game, most of it, folks.
Ooh, trying to play that ball through for Brown.
But a good sliding intervention it by all moron in midfield but Matt Richie eventually having to play it into touching.
It's another throw for Oxford.
They are in an attacking area here.
Can they fashion a shot on target? They have not yet in this game in that ball from Sam Long over the head of ruffles, ruffles able able to hold it in but just barely and has toe play it into Newcastle United possession.
And with just just about four minutes left to play in this first half, Newcastle will back themselves toe grab a goal before halftime, this line ball over the top, looking for Joe Lynton.
Eastwood smartly out to claim that rolls it out for Goran defensive midfield. There.
Spanish international but joined from Motherwell in Scotland.
The project here at Oxford United Ball rolled down the line.
Marcus Brown trying to keep that in, but played off of Kieran Clark and Oxford United again with the throw and Marcus Brown just stretching out a bit.
A little bit of a coming together there with sure Clark Baptiste receives it, plays it back and gets it back.
Switch a play out towards ruffles.
Ruffles lays it off to folks who opposed to staying on the wing, but now cutting inside rules it across long, long looks to hit one from distance and not a bad effort.
Not on target, but not bad.
It goes over, but it sat up for him and couldn't keep it down from distance.
Decent strike, though not terrible.
And why not when you haven't had a shot on target in in 45 minutes in almost 45 minutes of play? Why not have a go Newcastle attacking back the other way? Some Oxy man rolls it through.
Yedlin has it in the box.
First touch poor again and has to lay it off.
For some Oxy, Man could have been a dangerous situation and then good defending their by Goran against some Oxy man.
Now, folks who rolls it for forward for Goran, which is, Ah, strange position for the number six to find himself in.
And then Jamie Mackie commits the foul and Newcastle restart quickly from the free kick.
All moron with it in midfield ships it forward for long staff, but it off long staff and out for a throw.
Long staff was looking for a foul Oxford climbing a little bit in the possession numbers just above 30% now.
Not bad, that's I mean, that's essentially what you would.
What you if you had to put a number on it.
60 30 is about is about what you can expect from a Premier League team playing in here.
You know, from, Ah lead one team playing at a premier league away at a Premier League team, you're not gonna dominate the ball.
Not often anyways.
Take some kind of lead.
One team to dominate the ball away at a permanently ground Oxford United.
We'll have an opportunity here to whittle down a little bit of the first half, and maybe getting attack out of it is market.
Brown is running into space centrally, has a shot with the left foot and slips as he hit it, and it's behind for a goal kick that was disappointing from Brown as he dragged the shot wide Brown.
Yeah, it could be. Could be just accused.
A little bit of getting tunnel vision when he gets in and around the Newcastle penalty area needs to look up and try to find his teammates, but he did just join.
He could just join the team on loan from Middlesbrough recent addition.
He's only made three appearances and lead one after making 13 appearances in the championship borough, loaning him out to get more game time, I guess.
But 22 year old Londoner, actually a West Ham product, starting now regularly for Oxford United and perhaps seeing his name up in lights trying to trying Thio impress his parent club.
And indeed, some, maybe some Premier League scouts who could be in attendance.
Well, we've played the 45 still waiting on added time.
I imagine it won't be.
It's three minutes, couple of stoppages for injuries, so little more time than you're used to having added on in the first half, but not too excessive.
Three minutes and we've played one of them already.
So I thought that might have been a foul against the cells, but Oxford able to hold this in, and then the cells came across.
Mackey came down worse off, just kind of landed awkwardly, and now the referee stops play.
What sells? Having a having a discussion with the referee about something Oxford United.
It was just Jamie Mackie and with cells, and they both flew into the challenge.
What sells a little more so honestly, you just landed awkwardly.
Lascelles that for those who are joining late.
Lascelles Lucky, Lucky to still be on the field, quite honestly, flew into a challenge in about the fifth minute.
Studs up, and I think the only thing that kept him on the field is he.
He made slight contact with the ball, but could he could have easily gone in the opening in the opening opening 10 minutes, um, the Newcastle captain Bull headed out by Richie and Oxford United with maybe one less flourish as we enter the last minute of stoppage time.
Could they fashion that first shot on target ruffles with a long ball forward? Brown into the area, jumping for Can't quite win it, though.
Then Richie puts it into touch.
Still, about 30 seconds They could, and it's long is, is pointing for a living for the long throw.
He's putting this into the box.
Mackey interested Sikes trying to hold in the header.
Long tried to cross to the far post, and this might just fizzle out without Oxford really fashioning anything and that is it for the end of the first half.
It's not the greatest F A Cup tie you'll ever see 00 at halftime.
But it is poised now for a second half in which you Castle will expect to advance.
They've started a strong line up and a couple of good opportunities for some Oxy man.
And indeed Ah, Yedlin in the box.
Um, and the cells have resulted in nothing Oxford United having fashion two shot on target yet, But it does appear like the space is there for Oxford to get in and get at this new castle team.
Um, as I'll, uh, I'll open up the chat now.
Thanks for the tips from, ah, at Terrible Alex and at Jack the Beast.
Thank you guys for that.
I really appreciate it.
And ah, yeah, it's been a weird, weird half.
And pardon the Bedhead.
It's just I mean, it's early here in the States.
So, um, yeah, hopefully you guys are enjoying the cast so far.
It's It's a bit of a weird one.
Ah, little, little strange, but it's I don't know.
It's almost kind of typical of what you'd expect from a lower league team going to Premier Li opposition.
Do you think that they're going thio they're gonna try to frustrate.
They're going to try to, um, see out the game.
I guess in a lot of ways it is.
But as I said, Not a classic.
Not not the greatest ethnic capital you'll ever see.
Um, I'm gonna take a look around the F A Cup.
So earlier this morning Lester went to Brentford Brentford obviously performing pretty well in the championship as as of now, but Chain made some changes.
They I think they made about five changes to their lineup and collect She'II.
A nacho grabbed the goal in just 1/4 minute for Lester and that goal stood.
Um, stood the test of 90 minutes and Lester advanced one.
Nothing having having taken down Brentford championship opposition.
Um wow Okay, so looking across the school, not a lot of goals going in in in the F A Cup fourth round, Burnley and Norwich, obviously Premier League opponents still not at zero.
Birmingham and Coventry which very interesting Minutely, our tenants of Birmingham's Ground and Coventry were drawn as the home team.
So they are playing at Birmingham's ground.
But Birmingham are the away team, so bit of ah, bit of a strange one.
That's a trivia question for the future.
Um Birmingham playing as an away team in their home stadium.
Ah Millwall and Chef of United Championship versus uh versus Premier League opposition and Millwall Um, they're still 00 at halftime at the Den um Newcastle and Oxford United as we have been watching 00 at halftime.
But now we'll talk about some goals.
Portsmith and Barnsley Portsmouth still in League Juan Barnsley Champion ship or maybe there.
Yeah, yeah! Barnsley towards the bottom of the championship.
Portsmith struggling in in League one.
But Portsmouth, with the two goals so far been close, grabbing the 1st 1 in the 37th minute and John Marquis um, doubling the lead just before halftime.
So potential upset on the cards they're reading and Cardiff City to ah to championship Sides nodded 11 Callum Patterson opening the scoring in the fifth minute, but he was pegged back by Yakult mate in the eighth minute.
Charlie Adam with the assist on the mate goal so bit of ah, bit of a strange one There.
Southampton and Tottenham in the one of the Premier League ties of the round 00 at halftime and then a potential upset on the cards at the London stadium as well with Connor towns and giving West Bram an early lead.
And, ah, they hold that one.
Nothing lead Going into the halftime break, eso potential upset their of Premier League opposition.
Taking a look at West Ham's lineup.
They have more or less a CZ.
First, it's it's kind of 1/2 in half, like they have half of the first team in half kind of fringe players.
So it is. It is a change side.
Meanwhile West Bram going pretty hell for leather.
Gareth Bury, Charlie Austin, Chris Brunt, Um, all in the side, um, names.
That won't be that will be very familiar to Premier League fans.
So, uh, the late game hole is hosting Chelsea at the KC Stadium.
They're in the whole, uh, I can't ever remember the name of the river, but whole Oh, Kingston upon hole, I believe.
Yeah, Kingston upon hole.
Anyways, the KC Stadium is hosting Chelsea later, so another championship team looking to take down Premier League opposition in that one.
So we are at half time.
Um, it is poised.
That's that's a classic announcer term, for It's not been great, but something could happen.
Certainly, uh, neither of these teams as it's it's been said.
Neither of these teams will want a replay.
That is the so the replays go through the fifth round.
And a replay at this stage is is fixture congestion.
Hell, so neither team is gonna want to add to the amount of pictures they played.
Newcastle already needed a replay to get here.
And ah, that will have, you know, congested there Fixture list a bit already.
And now the potential of 1/4 round replay is gonna be even worse for them.
They don't want to add any.
They don't want to add any games to that list.
So we will see if, uh if either team can, um assert themselves on this game and and find that find that breakthrough and be able to get into the fifth round because, I mean, certainly at that point, we can already see Oxford, you know, lead one team playing in Newcastle against against Premier League opposition.
That's already they're already off to a good start.
You can imagine that, you know, the next draw is going to be even more filled with pretty much like the quality teams.
Um, And for those looking for Maur f A cup action for me the tie of the of the fourth round the best The best match of the of the whole round is gonna happen tomorrow.
Um, tomorrow morning there's Man City versus Fulham.
Shouldn't an interesting matchup but city you always back city just with the depth that they have.
But the tie of the round for me.
Tranmere hosting Manchester United at Prenton Park in in Tranmere, just across the river from Liverpool Merseyside Merseyside team who turned around a three goal deficit against Watford in at at Vicar.
It's road, um, to force a replay then won the replay in extra time, um at Printed Park and earned that draw against Manchester United.
Uh, what an event and what What an occasion! That will be for Tranmere fans to play one of the biggest teams in England.
Um and then, Ah, little bit later tomorrow morning, Shrewsbury versus Liverpool.
I'm a Liverpool fan.
Um, obviously I back the kids to get it done, Um, against Shrewsbury.
But it'll be it'll be an interesting matchup a good opportunity for a few of the fringe players to get in there and and certainly some of the kids Curtis Jones winning the match against Everton in the last round.
So a lot of opportunity for the kids toe get out there and show them show their quality and hopefully they will.
But the match of the round from a Tranmere A league one side, who No one gave any hope.
They really weren't in great form coming into that game against Watford and Ah, there they're into the fourth round of the F A Cup and with in the in the F A Cup, you never know what can happen.
Manchester United have not, you know, they've not been in the best form of their lives.
So, um yeah, there's an opportunity there for for a big upset, I think in, um and we shall see what comes of all of that.
Um, the second half is getting ready to start here in a little while.
I'm just gonna take a brief break.
Uhm So if you're wondering where I'm at, I am just Ah, just gonna sip some coffee and take a little break.
While the rest of the F A Cup.
Uh, while the halftime break whittles down and I'll be back for the second half action.
So bear with me and I will see you guys back here in a few minutes.
All right, well, we're just about back underway.
It is Oxford United to actually start the half because they got a a false start, I guess, of in many respects, because the first half and now the referee just fitting to signal Jamie Mackie just waiting to get things underway.
And he has done now Oxford getting things under way here in the second half of 00 Oxford United and Newcastle United still nodded without a breakthrough in this fourth round F A Cup tie.
Interesting to think about what Carl Robinson said to his team at halftime.
Azmat Richie Saudi thought he was fouled, but ah, throw in for Oxford United.
It will be interesting what Carl Robinson said to his team at halftime and what their thoughts were in terms of how get back into this.
Is it just a matter of emphasizing sharpness in attacking areas? Or is it is it more technical than that, or are they happy with the way that things went and try to do more of the same.
I don't know. We'll see.
Sykes tried to bring that down him and follow suit, trying to combine Mackie now involved.
But Maki fouled.
Long staff are bent alive there.
Maki with a wry smile, telling just asking the referee how how that was a foul, A little bit of a talking to just may be reminded that he is talking to the referee.
Is Newcastle trying to get Ford Longstaff plays? That infield Bento led to hit this one from distance and it's held by Eastwood did well to hold on to it.
The Oxford goalkeeper Nobile Mental have cut right across that with his left foot and it was swerving a will.
A little bit of movement.
Good low strike by the recent sign E.
And then Mackey fouls the cells he was chasing.
This one was Cells, not the best header.
What sells again goes down pretty pretty easily.
A couple of cups of coffee for the Oxford United staff, but they'll certainly be hoping for a little more attacking energy from their team.
You Newcastle getting forward again, but booted clear by a combination of Oxford defenders.
Folks you interested in the press? But Newcastle able to get it forward.
Longstaff to Yedlin.
Rolls it through for some Oxy man.
C'mon, c'mon! Getting to the byline trying to cut it back.
Just had it taken off his toe.
Cross got deflected back.
The shot came in and then levered clear by Oxford United.
A little bit of, ah, little bit of 1/2 hearted shot for handball when the shot was blocked from the edge of the area.
But nothing more than that, with cells surveying his options.
So long, SEF striding into midfield ways it, after all Marone and then played back through for long staff chance here to deliver a cross.
Pull it off by Alex Goren, who is tracking back.
And it's a corner now for Newcastle United.
Another outswinger from Richie Lascelles running towards the near post.
It comes close to the penalty spot.
It's still my fault for Lascelles and Pinball in the box.
It's eventually hacked clear by Oxford United.
Salmeron lets it run, got it back share crossing towards the far post, and they did not quite get the contact on that.
Sam Long was challenging.
That ball at the back post was wide in the end, and Clark was challenging and ah, kicked Sam Long in the head and whistled for the foul or not UM, headed behind by Sam Long.
It'll be another corner for Newcastle.
Joe Linson, getting his band, has changed again and is now back on the field, falling towards the penalty spot again.
Nodded towards share, but he couldn't get his head on it.
Lascelles won the initial header.
I don't think he tried to play it back across goal, but Shared was not anticipating it and couldn't get anything on its bond for an Oxford goal kick.
Interesting passage of play there.
Head injury from the first half, still still bothering him, and he's had to have the bandages changed twice for the amount of Ah, bleeding that's going on from that wound.
So strange that he's continued on, Um, but the Brazilian not allowing the gash on his forehead.
Stop him competing in this F A Cup tie.
Very old school.
Feel a couple of players with head bandages.
Baptiste plays it back.
Stand back stand man was running in and just blocked off there.
Bye, ****ie folks to chasing this one.
Newcastle Get it clear, but only as far as Baptiste and then with cells gives it away.
Josh ruffles infield for Baptiste finds foe Sue, but Newcastle win it back.
He's got options either side.
Find some boxing, man.
He's got runners in the center, rolls it through Joe Linton, and it's into the back of the net. But it's offside.
Joe Lynton wanted the ball earlier, looked well off.
Honestly, he runs into the space.
Some Oxy man delayed, delayed it, and Joe Linton just didn't try to bend his run at all.
He'd still it's still a good finish, but he knew he was often.
He's immediately having a go at some Oxy man for not playing the ball.
Earlier, Julen Ethan denied a goal due to his offside position.
Richie with the header there against his own player.
But the ball comes to Al Moron in the end, and it's rolled across for some boxing man to run into again some Oxy man saved by Eastwood.
It was a narrow angle and Oxford United able to boot it clear, but Newcastle turning up the pressure of the last couple of minutes giving away in midfield.
Rodriguez, a k a.
Alice Goran Goran Rodriguez, I guess.
Oxford settling things down once again.
Long ball forward from Eastwood and goal.
Jamie Mackie chasing this one with with Cells, but it'll be back into the arms of Karl Darlow in Newcastle's goal.
He hasn't had much to do today.
And this is some Oxy, man, the run, the run tour from some mock C'mon there.
In the last attack, he almost got crowded out by his own players running towards him when they should have been running to the far post but drawing players away from that run.
But they allowed Oxford United and get back in numbers.
And then it crowded the shot into a poor area longball over the top, though, Cross came in Matt Richie, but he got hit.
Matt Richie put the crossing off of Sam along and they've had a bit of a battle all day today and now Sam Long will get a bit of treatment.
The referee stopped play.
Throw in here for Newcastle and it looks like share may go long or curing Clark.
But in studies miscontrolled and it's another well, it's another throw.
I thought it looks like he missed controlled it.
But off Oxford and Newcastle can start again.
Still 00 55 minutes when we played 10 minutes in the second half.
A couple of good opportunities, though, for Newcastle and Gillinson indeed had the ball in the back of the net.
But he was, well, offside.
Poor pass in midfield from Newcastle.
Sykes, trying to bring it under control, couldn't do so in Joe Lynton onto it.
Turning away from Sykes, Joe Lynton looks to shoot, lays it off for long staff to strike.
Blocked in front.
Long ball forward for Oxford United.
And Jamie Mackie was chasing that one and wanted a foul.
Wanted a foul, didn't get it.
And now Newcastle going back the other way.
That long ball forward for macking over near the area.
It needed to be Bentaleb Salmeron, moxie, man hugging that touch line.
Found some joy out there but lays it off for Kieran Clark.
Kieran Clark has gotta sort that hair cut out.
That is, that is amateur.
That's non league nonleague quality decent interchange here some Oxy man puts a low cross in towards Joe Lynton, hacked clear eventually by Oxford United, not done by Brown and then played off of Matt Richie for an Oxford wrote.
But the pressure is there.
Newcastle just turning up the just turning up the heat a little bit on their lead.
One opposition worth mentioning in pretty decent game of the championship going on right now.
Stoke City, opening the scoring against Swansea Ball across the field, looking for Josh ruffles out there on the left for Oxford and not able to find him.
And was there foul there on folks? UNOS says the referee.
But then, since cuts in and intercepts that passing, could the counter up beyond for Oxford? They've barely had a sniff here in the second half.
Can they get this right? No, that Newcastle has gotten bodies back, but folks who does well to get away from a couple of players but then squeeze out of possession, just pour there in the end.
But a poor giveaway as well.
Castle Oxford, just not able to find that next gear toe really put the put the pressure on their hosts today, ruffles out on the left hand side.
Ruffles gets it back from foe Sue but plays it off Yedlin and they do have a corner.
Oxford United First real attack and they've had a They have an opportunity here from a set piece.
Not the best, not the best at defending set pieces.
It looks like it'll be Baptiste over to take this one.
Be an in swinger with his right foot from the left hand side, just shy of the hour mark towards the back post and caught well by Karl Darlow.
Actually, he was competing with his own, his own player.
****ie stayed down here and ah, couple of players now staying down head injury here for a Newcastle player might be far beyond share.
Yeah, that doesn't look good for for far beyond share.
Oh, it's the hip of ****ie that just goes through the back of the head of Fabby and share.
Didn't look good.
Initially surprised the state.
I don't know it.
It didn't look like you got any actual treatment, but we have played an hour now.
Newcastle going along here from Darlow Oxford winning it back and Oxford have survived the couple of big chances that Newcastle have had so far Oxford trying to maintain some possession.
But it has to be said that the tempo just has to be quicker in attacking areas.
They haven't really threatened Sam Long trying to change that here.
Good woman for where he lays it off for Sykes.
You put a cross in shorts, Mackie at the near post, and it's wide.
Oh, that was a decent chance here for Mackey.
And was it played behind for a corner Newcastle Just about blocking it off? Good run from Sykes in behind.
He cut it back, and it was actually the intervention from Lascelles that put it behind for a corner.
And now Oxford have caused Newcastle some problems in the last few minutes in towards the penalty spot headed away and some Oxy bond gets it clear.
But on Lee, for Oxford to turn back around.
Bring it back the other way, folks, you on the left hand side, goes past.
Yedlin does very little to hold onto the ball here, Baptiste sizing up a strike from distance and, well, why did it again And it was he cut across.
It never really wrapped his foot around it.
Baptiste, from the edge of the area, would have taken some strike to beat.
Darlow, whose had precious little to do, hasn't had to make a save yet.
You can see they're from the ER from the shot fromthe shot count, four shots and none on target for Oxford United.
That'll obviously you know, because of how soccer works.
It will have to change, but we'll see throw frocks for Unite.
All it takes is one.
When it's it's not a 00 it just takes the one chance for Oxford to Ah, break it open.
Here has to be said that if they do open the scoring, it would then be a long long half hour to try to hold on to that lead.
Marcus Brown, trying to bring it down, didn't do the best job, but he does go past a couple of Newcastle players.
Can he get his head up here near the area? He lays it off for long back for Marcus Brown, drills it into the area, gets it back from the clearance shot with the left foot.
Oh, and it what a strike! That would have been just wide Well, what a strike that would have been it was drifting towards the far post.
He was played on side by Lascelles.
Lascelles has his arms around Mackey.
Dangerous play, cuts it back with his left foot and that whizzes past the post.
So nearly the opener for Oxford United.
A little bit of bad luck in there from Newcastle, but Oxford United making their luck a little bit.
But now Newcastle headed back the other way and a foul given new DeAndre Yedlin holding his knee rolling around.
And now Baptiste, it looks like, is gonna be booked for the foul on yet, Um, javelin looks in quite a bit of pain.
And for someone who's had the injury problems that Yedlin has had, it is not a great sight to steam rolling around.
It looks like he's back to his feet.
Giblin is back up.
He didn't receive any treatment, and they'll look to deliver this free kick rolled across Richie, chips it into the box and then headed away by Jamie Mackie, tracking back into his own his own penalty area.
Longstaff here for Newcastle.
Yedlin has a touch of the ball, and he looks to be okay.
Then did Yedlin.
Just commit a foul? No, says the referee.
Throw for Newcastle restarted foe Sue and Goran competing for that one for Oxford didn't eventually hooked clear by Josh Ruffles ball into the center of the park, a little dangerous and ah, foul given Baptiste now needs to be a little bit careful.
It's not a second yellow, but it he will need to be careful of ac***ulation at this point now that he is on a yellow.
The young midfielder for Oxford had it long ball headed away and into midfield.
But Newcastle able to bring it under control through curing Clark, forward for Joe Lynton, who's dropped a little bit deeper.
Looking for space.
Good ball through looking for Richie found him out there on the left hand side.
Looks for Joe Lynton again.
Might come for Salmeron on the edge of the area, but he has to dribble away from some pressure and then it's played back.
And now the cells looking for the correct option. Shar.
And now it's out wide for Yedlin, who looks to be moving okay.
Yellow looks to deliver across in, cleared away at the near post.
The cells brings it back under control Longstaff all the way across the Kieran Clark lays it off for Ritchie and then, to some Oxy man who just takes his eye off the ball there.
Throw for Oxford has Oxford's best chance of the game gone begging.
Just getting a bit tense here for Newcastle is that ball rolls back into the arms of Karl Darlow and he'll just lay it off for Lascelles and two left, a long staff Yedlin decent move here for Newcastle.
Longstaff in a dangerous area puts across in.
But again, it's Rob ****ie of the near post.
Throw comes in from Newcastle Bentaleb Longstaff looking forward for Yedlin but cut out by United or Oxford.
I can't really say khaki.
I keep trying to say United, they're both united.
That's not a great distinguish her from a commentary perspective, but Newcastle able to win it back the cells and again, Newcastle going going for the patient approach.
But the danger man all game have been down.
That left hand side, some mock *****.
Angela Lynton al Marone.
To some oxy man, I'm around a long staff share, back to Longstaff and now across the Edlund, not making the difference yet.
Yedlin as Oxford now trying to press out a little bit.
They dropped quite deep Newcastle trying to draw them out by passing it around the back.
And now Oxford just play into possession.
And now Goran advantage played.
He had the ball on for Brown.
Can Marcus Brown get there? And he was.
He fouled better in the end, was he brought down? But it was The shot is, in the end, into the arms of Karl Darlow.
He was one on one.
He had gone past a couple of players and now some moxie Mountain getting forward, all Marone across towards the far post.
And Yedlin couldn't get there in time.
And it'll go out for an Oxford throw.
But what a chance for extra united through the center Marcus Brown.
It looked like the chance had just gone.
He still got a contact to it, Justus.
He was falling over.
Gordon tried to play the ball into the wide space.
Marcus Brown tried Thio, bring it back Central, and he never got his body shape right to get a good clean strike on it.
And now, first change of the game.
Outside Marksman will come off in the 140th minute.
Matthew Longstaff coming on.
So both Longstaff brothers on for Newcastle now.
Maybe just again seeing his name up in lights.
The ball from Goran was designed to take Brown wide.
Ah, he fisted out into space.
Brown stepped inside and took. Took.
It did okay to try to bring it under control, but the bull was designed to bring him out wide and create options for players. Infield.
Marcus Brown saw his opportunity.
Thio, Bring it central and be the guy to finish that chance off, and in the end it goes begging.
And another chance for Oxford United in these closing stages is now.
Madam, you long staff from distance.
But it's wide, basically just Ah, his first touch since coming on, and one Longstaff brother really trying to impact proceedings here.
It's a good touch out from his feet, brought onto his right foot and tried to curl it into that far corner, but never got the girl on it.
Straighten went behind harmlessly for ago cake, but a good opportunity for Newcastle again.
And maybe the discontent just growing as Oxford have hung in here for 70 minutes.
Jamie Mackie just trying to demonstrate to the referee and that he's been held and then a high boots foul given against Oxford.
Jamie Mackie has to be getting a little frustrated, he said a few fowl softballs given against him.
And, ah, indeed, even in a full Nelson as he was, there was not given the foul so bit bit upsetting from a center forwards.
Point of view and you're not getting the rub of the green.
As I say now, the ball given away Baptiste away from a couple of players and well done.
They're good touches in the center of midfield from Shandon Baptiste.
But Shanks clearance in my comfortable Lynton offside flag up again against Joe Linta, and it was a deflection.
This will be interesting for V a r.
The ball is in the back of the net for Newcastle.
Yeah, the balls come off of gambling.
Joe Lynton, with another good finish.
He's put the ball in the back of them twice and been off both times.
V R is having a look at it But it wasn't offside.
Good decision by the referee.
Yedlin deliberately played the ball.
It deflected off the bottom of his boots and went straight to Joe Lynton, who was in an offside position who finished well.
It remains 00 despite the fact that the Brazilian has had the ball in the net twice, both correctly chalked off her outside and not minuscule.
This is as sore.
One there, left on Richie A Richie left the store one on Marcus Brown.
I should say, Karen Clark, I should have known about the crap haircut.
Yeah, he's just gone down the side of his ankle, nowhere near the ball.
74 minutes free kick.
Here, though, for Oxford.
Marcus Brown is the one over it as a set on loan from Middlesbrough.
He'll look to whip this in, headed away at the near post, and L'm Iran able to bring it under control.
But Marcus Brown does well, the win it back.
But then it's one off his toe and al morons running into space.
I'm around pulled back and Goran Alex Rodriguez taking the yellow there for the team, taking one for the team he knew what he had to do it. It's a cynical.
It's a cynical foul, but he has to do it, and he does it the correct way.
It's honestly, that's if you're going to commit a professional file and get a yellow card.
Do that, pull their shirt.
Don't dive in towards their feet for, you know, to try to hack a player down.
Do that, you know, do the deliberate foul of pull the shirt back, get the yellow card, stopped the play and do what you're trying to do without putting the player in any risk.
That's That's to me how a professional foul should be conducted, not sliding and cynically to try to try to wipe a player out.
But this is a dangerous opportunity here.
Matt Richie looking to deliver an inswinging ball here from the left flank into the box, and it's gonna be an interesting one.
Can Oxford defend the situation towards the far post? Longstaff was interested.
That's Maddie Longstaff well dealt with in the end by Josh Ruffles and out for a new castle throw rather than a corner.
They are looking to go long.
It looks like Fabio and share is tryingto throw this into the senator.
Obstacles short the Longstaff chip to the far post.
Lascelles still up, and it might come from around the bicycle kick over the bar, though.
The overhead not working out this time for L'm Iran.
Decent attempt, but always rising over the bar.
Didn't get didn't get over it.
First change of the game.
It looks like Jamie Mackie.
Not a lot in terms of opportunities, but Nathan Holland coming on number 27.
Coming on for Oxford.
It's the first substitution of the game for the use.
Not pleased with how he was dealt with by the referee, um felt he wasn't getting much.
Nathan Holland, having just arrived on loan from West Ham.
Been scoring goals for fun in the, UH, in the P L to the Reserve League for West Ham.
So it'll be interesting to see if Nathan Holland can make an impact in this game.
And Amiran Albarran, flying into a tackle their thought thought he was fouled, flew in very high, and it he's lucky he got contact with the ball and not the player cause that type of retaliatory challenges, the sort of thing that sees sees players get see red and he went in about waist high with his studs up.
Joe Linton trying to play a ball through from where? Long staff.
But it's deflected into the path of Simon Eastwood and he's ableto collect it now.
Well, look, toe restart played going along.
Nathan Holland will certainly be looking to make put his stamp on this on this game, giving away a poor giveaway by Newcastle, Nathan Holland into the center towards market.
Brown, who's taken up a central position now but it's cut out by Newcastle, did just enough getting back Nathan Holland.
No trying to win it back off of Longstaff and then a foul that Richie going down and Newcastle winning the free kick on the left hand side.
Still 00 and it's getting into that interesting period of the game.
Newcastle, readying a substitute substitution of their own Christian Natsu, I believe is gonna come on.
Not sure who is coming off as of yet, but you'd imagine one of the Attackers, as was there foul in midfield by violent in their Waas and Gillette did not have you with the referee for the foul given turn in midfield therefrom.
Alex Rodriguez, another foul from Joe Lynton.
Oxford tried to get things started quickly, but it looks like they're getting ready to make the substitution, and it's actually gonna be a attacking change.
Christian Nazi is gonna come on for an appeal.
Not much toe write home about in his debut for Newcastle United, having just joined from Shaka in Germany.
Gilson Kirk in but Christian Natsu comes on Christian Natsu.
It has to be said one of the top prospects when he was coming up and just hasn't just hasn't ever hit the heights of what was expected as we've crossed the 80th minute mark just 10 minutes remaining in regular time for someone to find a winner here.
Oxford obviously well be quite content to bring Premier League opposition back to the Consomme Stadium.
Nathan Holland already impacting proceedings.
Sykes ship through.
Alex Rodriguez, striding into the space here, lays it off ruffles to put the cross in, deflected behind by Yedlin, and it'll be a corner for Oxford.
This is now where Newcastle are feeling they could throw this away.
They were dominant for so much of the game had the opportunities, haven't converted them, and now the opportunity is there for Oxford to snatch it.
Baptiste, to the far post, nodded back into the center, headed away in the end but held in by Marcus Brown, shipped over the top.
And then Lascelles heads it back into the waiting arms of Karl Darlow.
Long ball forward headed away.
Oxford but Longstaff planning it down the line.
But poor ball and into touch.
Maddie along Chef Oxford with six shots now, having had just four.
Ah, and they had four in the in the first half, but we've only added to it in the second half, but they have much more threatening and could be argued.
Marcus Brown probably should have scored squeezed out of possession here.
Al Marone Striding forward.
Christian, not Sue, drives it into Sam Long Holland and long tracking at suit.
Here he turns to put across in again, and long puts it out for a new castle throw Christian that's trying to impact proceedings immediately off the bench.
Throw comes into the center, just about dealt with by Elliot Moore and then played by Newcastle all the way back to Karl Darlow who's gonna look to go long and does boot it down straight down the center for Joe Linton to chase, and that's gonna be held in by Simon Be swollen.
Oxford readying another change would appear Sam Long chipping this one forward and put into touch by curing Clark Sykes too long shipped over the top folks.
He might be able to chase this one.
Has he brought it down? He's got a chance here.
Can you find the right ball? No, he just took too much time on it.
And now Newcastle breaking the other way.
All Miran Elmer on trying to go past a couple of players.
He was brought down by Sykes.
It would be a yellow card.
Another cynical challenge there from ***.
Just drag him back.
Dangerous situation, foe Sue.
It has to be, said folks, who was folks who had the opportunity there.
That was probably the one for Oxford United and now a free kick just outside the area.
They're gonna likely have a shot here.
It's central enough.
Richie looks the most likely to take it share as well. It is.
This is the period of the game where Newcastle's been so good recently.
Now it looks like Shar is the one to strike it.
Charlotte's off back to Sha're and then into the wall, blocked away and then the shot from distance is a corner Longstaff, his shot deflected behind.
Never really that threatening, but I'm not really sure what Newcastle was going for.
Laying the ball off the tea time.
Shar had an opportunity to bend it towards that near post, but Corner came in, didn't get good contact on it.
And then Sykes able to bring it away.
No foul says We're in free by Manny Longstaff in Newcastle.
Win it back with cells playing it out for Al Miran.
Lays it off The Longstaff Amiran Long Cross to the far post might come down for Joe Linson, and it's over the bar.
That was an opportunity for Joe Lynton.
He's put the ball in the back of the net twice from offside positions.
This time, he's onside and he just has a swing at it with his left foot.
Should do better from 12 yards out and now folks who who had the opportunity for Oxford United comes off and Daniel Daniel R.
J coming on and now Sean Long staff will come off in Isaac Hayden, who was the hero against Chelsea.
They're asking him.
Maybe for another, a similar performance from a set piece late in this one.
Still 00 just three minutes of regular time left to play.
Eastwood goes long.
Aga is gonna challenge for this one immediately and then a foul given against Gay over 52,000 Nets.
ST James's Park is now Newcastle.
Keep trying to take the free kick quickly.
Fromthe wrong position.
Long ball forward Longstaff puts a ball across Joe Lynton trying to keep it in.
Hit, goal, kick toe.
Not much time left, but there is still plenty of time for either team to find the winner here.
And surely, at this point it would be the winner.
The Oxford fans, applauding what they what they see is a good performance from Ah from their team.
As Oxford, I have done enough.
Probably two earn a replay here as now the offside flag up against Oxford free kick to Newcastle Long ball forward by Lascelles.
Joe Linta, jumping for this one headed away, comes back across the at Su at Suitor blowing in field, but can't find a way through Richie and Kieran Clark exchanging passes.
And then it's played down the line for absolute.
Can you find the cross? You're at sea to the byline and it's pushed behind Simon ese foot.
Just got enough to it that Sue.
I got to the byline.
It was a good run in behind Oxford United, struggling to keep up, and Eastwood did just enough to keep that cross from finding its target.
But the corner comes in now headed over the bar, and a goal kick goes Oxford's way.
Oxford in no hurry.
They know that they're under there under some pressure here did just enough.
Yedlin was screaming in it near post and potentially on the end of that, we've played 90 minutes, four minutes of added time, just announced by the fourth official and a substitution being prepared now in stoppage time by Oxford long ball forward Oxford not able to win it back and then a foul Newcastle trying to restart quickly.
But the substitution is going to be made now. Newcastle.
We're trying to start quickly but referee allowing the substitution and it is going to be Jamie Hansen, who comes on for Oxford United.
The way I see who comes off, it's gonna be Alex Rodriguez, who is on a yellow.
So Jamie Hanson, just adding a bit of legs in field, unable to take a player who's on a yellow off.
Just keep him out of that dangerous situation, especially if another cynical foul is needed in these late stages.
We played one of the four guaranteed added minutes.
Joe Lindzen gets to the long ball out.
Sue brings it under control, trying to get to the byline again against Sam Long but long smart to it and able to clear it, um, out into touch for a Newcastle throw.
But despite the fact that it is 00 both these teams have had chances to win it.
Can Newcastle find some or late magic, as they have in recent weeks? Seems like they've always been able to find that bowl.
That answer is Sykes wins it back in midfield, and now gay, the substitute he's got, he's got support.
Marcus Brown, to his left, just didn't quite find the right ball.
Marcus Brown, into the area, tries to pull it back and just loses his footing.
That was an opportunity.
And you just have to say that they're just a little bit gun shy.
The Oxford United Strikers.
They have to be more willing to pull the trigger.
There is that long ball forward for Matt Richie through the center of all people.
He couldn't quite bring it down, and now Oxford headed back the other way.
Newcastle tiring as well.
Nathan Holland, the substitute with the left foot, stings the poems of Karl Darlow, and he was nearly the hero there.
And I said that the forwards were a bit gun shy.
Nathan Holland not gun shy there.
But his strike in the end just to Central will be a corner for extra United.
And indeed, there's just one minute of added time left.
Could they possibly find the winner? Oxford look dead up feet.
They've they have put in the shifts, keeping things, keeping things level here.
Cross comes into the center.
Oh, and it was a good that it was a good good opportunity for ****ie.
It was such poor defending from Newcastle on the corner.
****ie had an opportunity.
There is this ball forward now.
L'm Iran chips it in towards the goalkeeper and Eastwood gets there and this will probably be it.
Just 30 seconds left.
They're just not timing is header correctly.
Long ball forward AKI A.
To compete for this one.
Can you bring it down? No, he can't Foul given against are gay.
And now everybody streaming forward for Newcastle.
But I don't know if they'll have time ball over the top and that is it.
The final whistle.
00 It ends Oxford in Newcastle.
Both having chances to end this tie in the fourth round will require replay.
Steve Bruce will be furious that they have to play another game offered United Won't be will be loving the idea that Newcastle will have to make the trip to Oxford and the Consomme Stadium in the replay, and they'll hope their name will be in the draw.
That's Ah, that's about that's about what they've earned.
Oxford United, though we'll look back on a couple of chances for primarily Marcus Brown but also Terek Foe Sue and there at the end, Nathan Holland, who nearly won it for the use but offered United get a replay against Premier Li opposition they've played.
They've acquitted themselves so well.
And despite the fact that Newcastle put the ball in the back of the net twice, both were from clearly offside positions and ah, no, no goals in this one.
Let's take a look around the rest of the F A cup and see how these Ah see how these second halfs, uh, finished up for the other teams in the competition.
See if there were some more goals.
As I said, Lester this morning be Branford One nil.
It was a 21 scoreline.
Norwich City knocking Burnley out of the competition.
Um Grant Hanley and Joseph Dermot the scores for enormous city Um and Peter's dragged one back.
Erik Pieters bagged one back for Ah Burnley! But it was not enough in the end, so Norwich advanced to the fifth round Coventry and burning him, unable to be separated after after 90 minutes there will be a replay, oddly enough, at the same ground.
But with Birmingham as the home team as Coventry are currently, um sharing that ground with Birmingham.
Ah, Sheffield United went to the den and Millwall and Ah, and came away with the two nil victory Mohammed message.
Ah, scoring as well as, um, Oliver Norwood grabbing the second within a system.
So to nothing in that game.
Chef of the United Into the fourth round.
Big men for Portsmith for two at home against Barnsley.
And so they knock out a side struggling in the championship.
The league one side are into the fifth round.
Ben Close, John Marquis, running Curtis and Christian Burgess.
The scores for Portsmith Kali Woodrow dragged one back in the 60th minute when it was 21 and then counter chaplain with nothing more than a consolation in the 90th minute for eliminated Barnsley.
In Reading it ends 11 So both goals scored in the inside the 1st 10 minutes, and then those teams held on.
So it will be a replay in Wales for between Cardiff and Reading a replay on the cards as well for Tottenham and Southampton, Young men son looked like he had given taught him the advantage 50th minute.
But Sofyan Boufhal uh, equalized with just three minutes to go and force the replay that will be at the top in Amman Spurrier Stadium in London, west from Cling to their one nothing advantage for 81 minutes and come away with a win against Premier League opposition at the London stadium West Ham United eliminated and west from into the draw.
As I said, Hole and Chelsea playing later on today um, actually kick off in about half an hour.
So, um, if you want to stick with the F A Cup action, you still gotta still got an opportunity.
Um, let me just stop on a chat before I depart.
I had a good record, I guess, of choosing games that had a lot of action.
And in this one, no such luck.
But, um, I do hope you guys have enjoyed it is always a pleasure to be ableto cast these games and and have the, ah, the play by play and just get to watch a bunch of teams that, you know, normally you wouldn't get to an F.
A Cup is a good opportunity to watch some teams outside the Premier League outside the big teams.
Um, so watching Oxford and seeing the shift they put in and seeing, it's just it was it was a touch here, touch there are past year passed there that they had the opportunities t create something toe really come away with a famous victory in ST James's Park in the fourth round and set up a tie against likely a pretty big team in the fifth round.
But instead, it is a replay, definitely a better situation for Oxford than it is for Newcastle, who won't relish the trip down to Oxford when they had an opportunity here to deal with the fourth round and either advance and advance without without the headache of a replay.
But the fixture congestion will just get a little bit worse.
So thank you guys for joining me.
Um, sorry that there weren't any goals, but I hope you guys have enjoyed and I hope you'll join me for the next one.
I'm hoping if the work schedule works out, I'm hoping I'll be able Thio do Tranmere versus Man United tomorrow, But I kind of have to play that one by ear.
So, uh, yeah, thank you guys for stopping by and I'll see you next time
