THE AALL BLACKS 0 THE VIOLA 0---MATCH ABANDONED DUE TO WAATERLOGGED PITCH!

Updated '3:00 pm bells' Sunday 7th August 2011
WA(A)TERGATE 2---"NO!---IT'S NOT FOG!---IT'S RAIN!"

"THE 'WA(A)TERGATE 2 FIASCO'!"

Yet another farce in the build up to the new season when the predicted thumder, lightnin' and torrential rain desended onto the St James' Park pitch (and stands!) in wor final pre season friendly against Fiorentina of Italy as The Toon ran oot in their 'aall blacks' change kit.
PRESIDENT NIXON--- WATERGATE 1  

After just six minutes Tim Krul in the Toon goal slid aboot ten yards on the surface waata 'like a jet skier' and from then on the deluge continued.

Play was finally halted in the 63rd minute when the players could hardly keep their feet and were in danger of injuries on the now flooded 'waata polo' pitch, so the ref caalled a halt to the 'goals free' fiasco as the downpour continued.

Just another day in the life of some (very wet!) Toon fans who braved the elements to watch this!

Attendance: Just 12,656 includin' 25 diehard Viola fans huddled in one corner of The Leazes End!
(ne doubt wishin' that they were back in sunny Italy!)


THE 100 PUB CRAWL CHALLENGE!
A TOON FAN STANDS WITH HIS ARMS
OOTSTREACHED IN THE DOORWAY
OF 'THE NEWCASTLE ARMS' -----
"IZ IT STILL RAININ'?--"LIKE?"--HE ASKS!

We are to attempt to de sommik that we think that nebody has EVER done before!----We are to 'attempt' to visit 100 pubs and clubs within waalkin' distance of St James' Park this season and we visited SIX of them yesterday before and after the 'waatergate fiasco'.

The truth is--we divvint naa if there ARE 100 'drinkin dens' within' waalkin' distance of the groond----so!---there's anly one way to find oot!---IS'NT THERE! 

More to follow on this later!
