Punters Panel.

Football fans across the country are always divided in thier opinions regarding the Carling Cup, and we are no different. So just how important is it to a team like Newcastle United? I could go into great detail about the pros and cons, but I would probably need a whole page. The bottom line is that if you manage to string five results together you find yourself in a major final with a great chance of finally winning something.

With the top three opting to play reserve teams, that must make us one of the favourites and we must not go into this complacent. Many will disagree and call this a Mickey Mouse cup, but would they feel the same way if it had black-and-white ribbons on it come February?

Prediction: 2-0 to Newcastle.
