Blackburn Rovers 0 The Toon 0

Posted: '10:30 a.m. bells' Sun 13th Feb
The neva endin' rollercoaster ride was an awayday @  
Blackburn 
Rovers yesterday.

We let the train tek the strain and arrived at wor destination @ '10:30 bells'. 'The Post Office' bar in Blackburn toon centre offered us 'John Smiths' extra caad at one poond sixty five a pint!----less than one thord of the price we paid at wor recent away game @ Fulham (fower quid a pint!) 
From there it was onto a club near the groond for somemore 'cheap liquid' before heedin' for the tornstiles.
In complete contrast to wor 4-4 thriller against 'The Arse' the Saturday before, this one ended nowts each with Peter Lovencrands comin' closest for us when his lob ower the goalie in the 14th minute hit the Blackburn bar. The Toon were the better team and shud have won, but wth ne recognised strikers to pick from the outcome was predictable.
4,750 Toon fans were there to witness this and afterwards we heeded back to the train station with a 'stop-off' at York for a few more 'refreshments'
in the city centre before catchin' the '125' back to Geordieland.------
Attendance: 26,781 (Rovers biggest crowd of the season so far!)

"NO BOOZE AT THE BOOZERS!"


The followin' report haz appeared in the sports section of  'The News of the World'----and I quote: "Talk about feast to famine. The poor travelling Geordie faithful had their thirst wetted by an amazing comeback against The Gunners. It's a good job they drank the local boozers dry by kick off, because there was nothing here to raise a glass to"---unquote

Next up: 'The Brummies' of Birmingham on Tuesday neet @ St Andrews in the re-arranged 'snowed off' game from December when we got within 3 miles of the groond before findin' oot that the game was off! (lets hope for better luck this time---"Eh!")
