EURO 2012---PUB PLONKIES AND 'CAN OF CARLSBURG ON THE COUCH', POTATOES, TELLY GUIDE!

Final update '10:50am bells' Monday 2nd July 2012 
OLYMPIC STADIUM KIEV IN 1997


"ENGLAND EXPECTS!---AND GOT EXACTLEEE WOT WAZ EXPECTED!"

The Euro 2012 Championships final waz tooneet of course and 'The Geordie Times'  produced ower the last 3 weeks a compreeehensive TV guide for yoo to cut oot and keep for aall matches!

The final  at The Olympic Stadium in the Ukraine capital of Kiev @ 7:45 bells and az we now naa, SPAIN hammered ITALY---4-0---and just in case yi wonderin'---oh yes!---'The NUFC mad-sad groundhoppers' have been here az well! (TWICE in fact!) to watch The Toon in The Champions Leegue!
England, of course beat Sweden here last Friday (just!) in the now reduced 60,000 capacity rebuilt stadium (It waz faallin' apart when we were last here 10 years ago!)  

To coincide with the final, aa'm deein' a 'match report' of wor forst visit here in 1997, when 'Bill Quay Kev' drank a full bottle of vodka before the match in a bar ootside the groond!
He didn't get in 'til half time and fell asleep in the 2nd half and MISSED the game! which ended 2-2, with unlikely hero John Beresford gettin' both wor goals. (aall that way for nowt!)

'Sensible' 'me'!?--on the otha hand!, ended up in the KIEV END! in the 100,000 crowd that day, afta gettin' completlee lost tryin' to find the Toon fans tornstiles!
It'll be well worth a reeed---aa promise yoo! 

PS: Just finished the nightshift truck run from Gatesheed to Glasgow and back.
Gannin for some much needed kip now and aa'll put the Kiev groundhoppin' story online when aa get up at teatime!----"ZZZZZZZzzzzzzz!!!!!!!"
