"They're getting every so slightly closer to their first trophy"

Mark Ogden and Shebahn Aherne discuss Newcastle after their Carabao Cup semi-final first leg win against Southampton
Newcastle United's first-half strike against Southampton was ruled out because VAR didn't 'have enough evidence' to overturn Stuart Atwell's on-field decision at St Mary's. Joelinton thought he'd put the away side ahead when he smashed the ball home from less than six yards shortly before the interval.
However, he was judged to have handled the ball when he brought it under control before his finish. Atwell wasted no time blowing his whistle in real-time after Southampton players brought the incident to his attention.
But many Newcastle supporters believed the ball had hit Joelinton's torso rather than his hand. However, VAR reviewed the incident and deemed they could not see sufficient evidence to reverse the decision.

Newcastle United boss Eddie Howe named his strongest starting line-up available for the Carabao Cup semi-final first leg at Southampton's St Mary's Stadium.
The Magpies went into the clash after a 0-0 draw at Crystal Palace in which Bruno Guimaraes had played despite suffering a nasty whack on the ankle in the 1-0 win over Fulham. And Howe again started with the Brazil star in the centre of hid midfield.
Kieran Trippier skippered the team while Sven Botman and Fabian Schar formed the centre-back pairing and Dan Burn again played at left-back. Sean Longstaff, Joe Willock and Bruno made up the engine room trio.

Newcastle United target Anthony Gordon has bid an emotional farewell to former Everton boss Frank Lampard after he and his backroom staff were sacked on Monday. The Toffees are languishing in the Premier League relegation zone and on the hunt for a new manager to take the reins at Goodison Park.
Gordon is also expected to leave Merseyside this month with Newcastle at the front of the queue for his signature. Chronicle Live understands Lampard's Everton exit is unlikely to prevent the sale of Gordon – IF the price is right on the 21-year-old.
The attacker has been left out in the cold in recent weeks, last featuring for Everton on Boxing Day. However, Gordon still wanted to put his thanks to Lampard on record.

Former Newcastle United midfielder Alan Smith says he surprised by the lack of interest in Brentford striker Ivan Toney.
The former Magpies striker told There’s not many realistically that I look at that I think would be a stand-out candidate, but I’m surprised that within the Premier League that nobody has tried to sign Ivan Toney. He’s that type of striker that you can play into, and the goals that he’s scored have been incredible.
"You see less signings within the Premier League from one club to another over the last few years, but it would be interesting to see a player come through at another Premier League club and then join United. You mentioned Kalvin Phillips going to Man City, and Declan Rice linked with going to a few places – it will be interesting if any of those moves materialise."

Newcastle United fans would like Eddie Howe to name two changes to his starting eleven for the Carabao Cup first-leg tie at Southampton. The Magpies head coach has been urged to select both Alexander Isak and Allan Saint-Maximin in a bid to address the team's recent goalscoring troubles.
Newcastle sit third in the Premier League table after Manchester United's defeat at league leaders Arsenal, but attention now turns to the Carabao Cup. Southampton stand in the way of a first major final for the Magpies in more than two decades, with Nottingham Forest squaring off with the Red Devils in the other semi-final contest.
Howe's side have scored just once in their last four top-flight outings, and were again frustrated by Crystal Palace in a goalless draw at Selhurst Park on Saturday evening. Newcastle fans would like the head coach to make changes to his team as a result, with only Miguel Almiron keeping his place in the frontline in the most popular eleven.

Shay Given has warned Newcastle United they can't afford to rock the boat with January additions, but says their FA Cup defeat to Sheffield Wednesday has shown the squad depth isn't as strong as other clubs in the race for the top-four. The Magpies were five points clear of Tottenham Hotspur prior to Spurs' clash with Manchester City, having played the same amount of games.
Manchester United's draw with Crystal Palace means they're just a point ahead of Eddie Howe's side, level with Manchester City. Newcastle are more than happy to go under the radar and avoid any talk of a title race, with Arsenal nine points clear having played a game less.
Supporters are hopeful the Magpies will strengthen the squad in January and take advantage of the Champions League opportunity before them. Former Newcastle goalkeeper and favourite Given, says the FA Cup defeat to Sheffield Wednesday has shown how far the Magpies are away from their top-six rivals.

Negotiations on between Newcastle and Everton for Anthony Gordon. He’s in the list alongside Matheus França — talks ongoing as @CraigHope_DM has reported. #NUFC

Understand Flamengo have turned down €16m bid from Newcastle for França but talks continue.
Southampton will welcome Newcastle United to St. Mary's looking to avoid a repeat of their 4-1 thrashing earlier in the season. Eddie Howe's side turned in a near perfect away performance with Miggy Almiron, Chris Wood, Joe Willock and Bruno Guimaraes on hand to secure all three points.
The Saints – then under the stewardship of Ralph Hassenhuttl – were second best as the Magpies made it nine games unbeaten, seven of those being wins. Southampton were booed off the pitch back in November, with Hassenhuttl losing his job in the days that would follow.
Nathan Jones, the former Luton Town boss, has done well throughout his career building sides that thrive on hard work and application. However, it's been a tough introduction to life at St. Mary's, winning just once in the Premier League since his arrival.

Newcastle are now reported to be in formal talks with Everton over a deal for winger Anthony Gordon but are also speaking to several European clubs over attacking options.
Here's Lee Ryder's transfer piece on the situation from last night.
Chelsea and Newcastle have both been linked to the Brighton midfielder.
Caicedo: “I’m focused on Brighton. I’m here, I’m focused on this club so things from outside don’t trouble me, nor does it take that focus away because I’m focused only on here”. #BHAFC

“I only try to be focused on club which opened the doors for me to be playing every week”.
The Brazilian teenager has been the subject of a £14million discussion but his club Flamengo want more. In fact both Newcastle and Arsenal have been told to double that figure for the attacking midfielder.
The Flamengo youngster is tied down to his club until 2027 and the Brazilian club have stated they have long-term interest from Real Madrid and Lyon, who might be prepared to stump up more in the future.

Real Valladolid right-back Ivan Fresneda has held talks – via his agent with Newcastle – throughout the window. His representatives, Epic Sports of Portugal, have also had interest from Arsenal, Borussia Dortmund and Man United.
Man United now seems unlikely but there have been long discussions on Germany and London. Newcastle still feel that Fresneda would be the ideal understudy to Kieran Trippier moving forward.
But a big decision is due later this week. Newcastle have excellent links with Harrison Ashby's agency Wasserman, who also represent Eddie Howe. Howe admires the West Ham youngster and feels he could be a big part of the future if he decides to swap the Hammers for the Magpies.

The latest of Newcastle's search for a striker
Newcastle United are set to revamp their scouting operations at Academy level with a host of key appointments. United secured sporting director Dan Ashworth from Brighton & Hove Albion last summer but his long-term plan is now beginning to take shape.
Having appointed Man City's Paul Midgley as head of youth recruitment the club are now looking to flesh out the rest of their talent spotting unit across the country. The Magpies have struggled at Under-21 level this season and now have an eye on what happens in the long-term future.
In what is described as an "exciting time" for Newcastle they will look to appoint a new Head of emerging talent as the club look to improve recruitment at the Academy.

Kieran Trippier admits that he was shocked when he learned how long Newcastle United have gone without winning a domestic trophy.
Eddie Howe has used the trophy drought as motivation around the club's Benton base and the fact that United have gone 68 years without one was displayed on screens around the ground. Trippier has also held long chats with former season ticket holders such as Sean Longstaff and Dan Burn who gave him a history lesson on the club's wait for success.
When asked his reaction after being told it was 68 years for a trophy and 54 for any major trophy – the Fairs Cup in 1969 – Trippier spoke of his surprise. Speaking ahead of tonight's League Cup semi-final, Trippier said: "It was a bit of a shock when you look at how big the club is but I have Dan Burn, Sean Longstaff, loads of players who are Geordies and they try and drill it into the boys how much it would mean to get to a final and to win a cup.

Tune in!
Jamie Carragher and Gary Neville have disagreed over whether Newcastle United will secure a top-four finish this season. The Magpies currently sit third in the Premier League, having not lost a top-flight fixture since August.
Eddie Howe's side have only scored once in their last four league matches though, and were held to a frustrating goalless draw at Crystal Palace in their last outing. The Magpies hold a three-point cushion and a game in hand over fifth-placed Tottenham, although attention now turns to their Carabao Cup semi-final tie with Southampton.
The Sky Sports pundits revealed their predictions for the remainder of the campaign on Monday Night Football. Carragher tipped league leaders Arsenal to hold on to pole position, while Neville expects Manchester City to win their fifth title in six seasons.
The pair also did not agree on which team would claim fourth place alongside the Gunners, City and Manchester United.

Eddie Howe insists Alexander Isak needs more training time with Newcastle United to get up to speed on Tyneside. The Swedish striker returned from injury this month and netted the winner against Fulham but is still battling for a starting spot at St James' Park.
Isak came off the bench for Newcastle at Selhurst Park on Saturday but failed to inspire the Magpies to a win over Crystal Palace. There are calls from sections of the fan base for Isak to return to the starting XI but Howe says the forward is still trying to get up to full speed.

Newcastle United's dressing room may not be flowing with serial trophy winners – but in Kieran Trippier they have a man who knows both sides of the big semi-final occasion.
With England, Trippier tasted the glory of beating Denmark at Wembley at Euro 2020 while also suffering the pain of the 2018 World Cup semi-final loss on the night he became a national hero with a swirling free-kick against Croatia. And with Tottenham Hotspur too he tasted victory after a sensational victory in the Champions League last four against Ajax.
Trippier, even at 32 and having been here before, is excited about the big clash against Southampton and said: "It is massive. Some of the players might not have been in a semi-final of a cup before but for myself, I have had a lot of games in these type of situations so I can try and help as much as I can."

Eddie Howe admitted that there was no euphoria about Newcastle United making history on Saturday night on the journey home from Crystal Palace – because the stalemate felt like a defeat.
The 0-0 draw extended the unbeaten sequence to 15 matches to set a new all-time top-flight record for the Magpies. But the achievement barely registered with Howe in the immediate aftermath.

This from the Jamaica Observer.
Kingston College and Phoenix Academy forward Dujuan "Whisper" Richards is expected to go on a two-week trial with English Premier League outfit Newcastle United this week.
The Jamaica Observer has been reliably told that Richards received a British visa last week. And he is currently awaiting a Schengen visa, which allows him entry to some other countries in Europe for trials at a number of clubs.
When contacted Craig Butler, founder and president of Phoenix, confirmed Richards is to go on trial at one of teams currently in the top five of the English Premier League points standing, but he declined to name the club.
Eddie Howe has revealed that work on Newcastle United's training ground is 'getting there' – and players and staff could feel the 'benefits' in the coming weeks.
Although Newcastle's owners have been looking at sites for a new training base in the long-term, the hierarchy wanted to modernise the club's current facility in Benton in the interim. Those at the top felt moved to act after recognising the training ground fell 'significantly below the Premier League and perhaps even Championship standards'.
Work started last summer – Robertson Construction were awarded the contract – and the front façade of the extended building is starting to take shape with new black panelling installed. Inside, the players have been making use of a number of improvements in recent weeks, including a bigger dressing room, an extended dining room and even a modern boot room, and the new-look building will soon start to open up.

Frank Lampard's Everton departure could open the door for Newcastle to make a move for Anthony Gordon. The former Blues boss was relieved of his duties on Monday afternoon, with the Magpies linked with a £40million approach for the Toffees playmaker.
The Everton academy graduate played a big part in avoiding relegation last season, but with no sign of their fortunes improving, Newcastle have once again been linked with a move for the midfielder. Lampard, who was appointed this time last year, had spoken at length about keeping Gordon at the club and building a team around him going forward.
The 21-year-old has been a mainstay in Everton's starting XI this season, but like the rest of team, has struggled to find the form that propelled them to safety last season. The Blues youngster was among a number of players confronted by supporters at full-time following their defeat to Southampton.
