So, once again wholesale changes to the starting line-up led to Newcastle surrendering progress in the League Cup and for the umpteenth time we are out of the cup in the very early stages to lower-league opposition. Whilst we all appreciate how important it is to maintain our Premier League status - but really, after only two games into the season we are having to think about survival and therefore surrendering a cup run? I really do despair sometimes!
