Newcastle exit FA cup by Watford

Not surprisingly, Newcastle leave the FA cup early in the tournament. An extremely poor game was noticed in the first 45 with nothing from either team. It wasn’t until around the 60 minute mark when Watford decided to show up and score and lastly in the 90th to end to game 0-2 at ST James park.

In reflection, nothing changes and it’s almost predictable these days with every game Newcastle go into. Without any new quality into the team, I can’t see anything changing soon or in the future. Mike Ashley runs the club as a business only and isn’t interested in anything other than surviving the premiership season at best.

Next game is Manchester city which is probably going to be huge score line defeat and will move us down the table as other teams around us pick up wins or draws.

Curry recipe

A slightly adapted recipe I got from a very good friend of mine.


500g diced chicken
1 red onion
3-4 green chillies
1 root ginger
Fresh mint
Fresh coriander
2-3 garlic cloves
2 black cardamon
Green cardamon pods
1 stick cinnamon
1 star aniseed
1 bay leaf
1 tbs deg murgh (chilli powder)
2 tbs mdh meat curry masala
1 tin chopped tomatoes
1/2 tin coconut milk (used to reduce spice heats and optional)


Note… For better tasting chicken, marinade in some curry masala spice with a little oil overnight

1. Chop and blend together using a hand blender the garlic, chillies, onion, ginger and mint. Blend to a paste.
2. In a preheated pot with a little oil, put in the cinamon stick, black cardamom, aniseed star and a couple of the green cardamom pods. Stir for a few minutes then remove items, leaving just a small amount of oil.
3. Add in the blended onion, garlic etc into the pot and bring to boil then simmer for 3 mins
4. Next add the degh murgh and the masala spice and stir in. Add a little water if needed. Add about 5-6 crushed green cardamom seeds into pan.
5. Add tinned toms, a little salt and simmer for a further 5 mins.
6. Add the chicken, bay leaf and bring to boil then add the coconut milk (optional)and simmer for 45-50 mins covering pot and stir occasionally during this time.
