‘It’s the hope that kills you’, ‘Disappointed’ – These Newcastle fans far from happy with cup exit

Newcastle disappointingly bowed out of the Carabao Cup on penalties after an impressive display saw them hold Leicester City to a 1-1 draw on Wednesday night, and whilst the performance was promising the result wasn’t.

After the game, the fans were left gutted as some of them seemingly had their hearts set on going on a cup run. It wasn’t to be this time, though, although Steve Bruce and co will always have the FA Cup to have another crack at.

In the end, it was the lottery of penalties, and after giving a good account of themselves the Geordies could only convert two of theirs whilst Leicester put away four, sending the Foxes into the third round where they’ll face Luton Town.
