Did you even check the starting lineups? We made 10 changes to our starting line up to the game against Everton. It was Shane Ferguson's second senior start!

We had internationals on (Lovenkrands, Campbell, Coloccini, Gutierrez)and so did Chelsea (Terry, Ramires, Benayoun, Zhirkov, Anelka). We had youth players on (Ferguson, Ranger, Vuckic, Krul) and so did Chelsea (Gakuta, Turnbull, Van Aanholt, Bruma, Sturridge). Please check your facts before commenting. Thank you please.

One thing that everyone seems to have missed is that Chelsea got back from 3-1 to 3-3 whilst down to 10 men. Not demeaning the win for Newcastle but this game needs to be got into some sort of perspective. Chelsea have a very big game at Man City on Saturday lunch time that makes this game into little more than a distraction.

Sorry but for most Chelsea fans this game didn't matter that much, the only two negatives that came out of it was the injuries and the fact we will have to put up with the usual inflated egos of Newcastle fans.

Chelsea fan here.
Fair play to newcastle,they came to stamford and won 4-3.Albeit in the carling cup but fair play.This cup has great potienal for newcastle.On the other side,Both sides put out a reserve side and sadly newcasle reserves were better.Im really looking forward to the Man City game.I think our aim should be to retain the epl and give the champions league a great rattle.What about mceachran eh?

donít forget you had home advantage, and, like Chelsea, the Carling Cup is also bottom in our list of priorities.

------------------------

Sorry, but I can't understand that attitude. It makes sense that the Carling Cup is at he bottom of Chelsea's priorities. But Newcastle? What other trophies are you going to be so busy challenging for this year that the league cup is unimportant?

I didnt say its 'unimportant'...I am saying it comes after staying in/doing well in the premier league and after the FA Cup. Just because we wont win the premier league doesnt mean we forget about it and put all our efforts into the carling cup!. All games are important - fortunately the NUFC players realised that last night and kept on puting the effort in, right to the very end!

This is a bigger win for Newcastle than it is a loss for Chelsea. As much as they would deny it, no big club likes the fixtures that the Carling cup brings to the schedule, they only start to take a proper interest if they are still in it in the later stages of the competition.
As a Newcastle fan myself, I just care about the league this year and staying in this division. This was a fantastic result for us in terms of confidence and a good test for our squad depth. The fact we can bring in some of the younger guys and they can do a turn is reassuring and will be vital for our survival this season. Its been a great start but years of being a magpie has taught me to take nothing for granted! I'll only be at ease when its mathematically impossible for us to go down again.

Perhaps Iíll get the last word in.

Chelsea are more interested in the Premiership and the Champions League and we are more interested in survival in the Premiership.
We both put our reserve teams and we were the better of the two teams on the night. If you say that we didnít deserve the win you are simply not being fair or objective. The only reason you went down to 10 men was because you used all of your subs too early in the game and that was a mistake by Ancelotti.
In the cauldron of defeat you have seen the coming of age of a fantastic young player Josh McEachran, who with Anelka, was responsible for your resurgence. If I were you Iíd happily take a few defeats in the Carling Cup to unearth gems like him.
Let us bask in our victory in a meaningless cup match were our reserves were better than your reserves: reality begins again tomorrow afternoon.
Finally: Dazzel (U14373036) I think youíll find that Newcastle fans do not have inflated egosÖ were not kidding ourselves that it matteredÖ or that it didnít matter.
