LONDON (Reuters) - Newcastle United were thrashed 5-1 by second divison leaders Birmingham City in their FA Cup third round replay on Wednesday at St James's Park.

The Premier League club, who last won the FA Cup in 1955, were shambolic throughout and were booed off at halftime and full time after being outplayed by the visitors who were relegated from the top flight last season.

Birmingham were 2-0 up by halftime thanks to Gary McSheffrey's fifth-minute effort and Nolberto Solano's own goal.

James Milner's long-range effort gave Newcastle a lifeline after 55 minutes but they were reduced to 10 men soon afterwards when Steven Taylor clipped Dudley Campbell just outside the area and from the resulting free kick Bruno N'Gotty made it 3-1.

Sebastian Larsen and Campbell added to Newcastle's misery with further goals to seal a fourth round meeting with Reading.
