That's right... Anthony Gordon, Allan Saint-Maximin and Bruno Guimarães.

Mr Dale said: "The reaction has been great on social media with shouts of 'Howay the Dog' whenever I post on Twitter or Facebook. 

"All my pals think he's a superstar and I am his chauffeur or agent."

The Magpies booked their place at Wembley after beating Southampton 3-1 on aggregate.

Ahead of the final Mr Dale has even created ‘Bruno’s magic hat’ for Devo to wear. 

The hat is something that was created by a young fan inspired by a chant often heard in St James’ Park.

Mr Dale even has a cup final outfit ready for his beloved pooch, which shows the Carabao Cup.

According to his owner, six-year-old Devo loves dressing up, something which started during lockdown.

The Magpies have not collected major silverware since their 1969 Inter-Cities Fairs Cup triumph, and last tasted domestic success in the 1955 FA Cup.
