Newcastle fans takeover Trafalgar Square before Man Utd cup final

Newcastle fans are making the most of their first cup final in nearly 24 years and have taken over London ahead of facing Manchester United at Wembley Stadium. The Magpies will play at the new Wembley for the first time having reached the Carabao Cup final. 

Tens of thousands of Geordie punters have taken over the capital and are in high spirits ahead of the showdown. Newcastle supporters have taken over Trafalgar Square, with pictures showing a sea of black and white in front of Nelson’s Column. 

Boss Eddie Howe said ahead of the game: “To win would mean the world to me to do that, but it would not necessarily be for me.

“It would be more, genuinely, for the supporters, for everyone connected with the club to embrace that moment if we were able to do it.

“They’ve had a long wait for that moment and I know just from my very limited dealings with people around the city, the love they have for the football club. I’d love to return that love with a trophy.”
