The official site have informed fans that the reserve game against Fulham, set to take place tonight, has been called off as Fulham were unable to field a team due to injury and illness.

Phil Bardsley was set for his debut.

  • Sorry, but that’s absolutely rubbish. Fulham seriously couldn’t field 11 players? Of course they could have done if they wanted. To not put a team out at sort notice is insulting to everybody and I hope Mr Mohammed “Where’s my passport” “Boo, hoo, the Queen killed my son” Al-Fayed is forced to pay a lot of money in compensation. Failing that, Fulham should be kicked out of the reserve league.

  • Certainly seems a very weak excuse, one that probably needs looking into by the powers that be. Pity though, I was looking forward to seeing the game, including taking my first look at Phil Bardsley.

  • I hope we get the three points by default, i also wonder if Hendrie and Bardsley would have taken the field……. Never know now. What kind of Mickey Mouse outfit are they.

  • Newcastle United under Kevin kegan ditched the Reserves? It looks like the Premier League don`t hold it`s value much either. The reserve league, could and should be run like all other FA leagues, you put a team out and fulfil the fixture, youth and first team players if needed.

  • how can they not be able to have a reserve team? we have the smallest team in the prem and we have injuries but we are still playing reserve matches
