THE TOON v THE BAGGIE TROOSERS---TONEET!

Updated '12:40 pm bells' Wednesday 21st December 2011

"ST JAMES' PARK SINCE 1880---AND AALWAYS WILL BE!"

Toneet we take in The Baggies of WBA in wot iz wor last home game of the year and we can anly hope that 'Santa Claaz' brings us an orly Xmas present in the shape of 3 points to end wor 5 game winless run.

The Hawthorns where the 'Baggie Troosers' play, iz close to my 'pay packet', az I am often at the bakery directly ower the road from their groond, deliverin' and collectin' bread (wud yoo belive!?) to take back to a bakery on the Team Valley in Gatesheed.

Not sure wot the crowd will be toneet? but I'm sure it will be less than the 51,000 at the Swanzee game on Saturday. (especially az it's anly fower days before 'yee naa who' comes doon the chimneee!)

Toon Team news :
PROBABLE TEAM LINE UP'S?
