|CAN WE REPEAT WOR FA CUP VICTORY FROM 102 YEARS AGO!?|
(The dogs name iz 'REX' by the way!)
Today @ '3 bells' we face the bottom club in the premya leegue in the FA Cup 3rd roond @ St James' Park.
Nuw yoo might think we are tekin' the p*ss by caallin' them the above name, but it just gans to show that if you get the wrang owners runnin' your club you're in deep! deep! trouble az the relegation bound Rovers of Blackborn will ne doubt testify!
The Indian based 'Venkys Tandoori Chicken Takeaways', who own their club (hence wor new name for them!) havvent got a f*****' clue aboot futbaall and they even admitted that they'd NEVA even been to a futbaall match in their lives!, before they bought Blackborn, which sez it aall aboot just who iz runnin' wor clubs theeeze days!
Indeed board meetings are conducted from somewhere on the Indian sub continent by 'video link' and az we aall naa, the fans? arnt happy with the 'Jock manager' they appointed, when they sacked Big Fat Sam ower a year ago!
Level 7 iz shut for this game az a smaallish crowd iz antisipated, with the visitors expected to bring up less than 1,000 diehards, who will ne doubt slag of their beleaguered manager at the forst opportunity!
Many Rovers fans (sorry!--Tandoori Chickenites!) are plannin' to boycott the game and follow cash-strapped local non leegue side Chorley instead! (great supporters!--"EH!?")
On paper, we shud win, BUT! this iz NUFC and the FA CUP! we are taalkin' aboot, so we'll take nowt for granted!---Lets just hope we are in the 4th roond draw on Sunday!
Ne news of wot the team might be, yet!?
'The Geordie Times100 Pub Crawl Challenge' today, will start off @ 'The Villa Vic' in Rye Hill, which iz off the beaten track a bit, but STILL within the 20 minute waalkin' distance limit from the groond. (Rules are rules!---every pub we visit MUST be within 20 mins of the groond!)
We havvent been in this pub for at least 30 years! and ne doubt it will have changed a bit since the last time we were here!? (Aboot 'six bob' a pint back then!---me thinx?) (30 pence!)
This will be waaterin' hole number SIXTY incidentleee!) (hope it's still open!?)
