|"TIL DEATH US DO PART!"|
The most hated day in the futbaall calender iz upon us! and @ '11am bells' this mornin' we will start boardin' the 'Alf Garnett skool busses' to the SOS!
We will start off in 'The Three Bulls' az it iz open @ '9 bells' and move onto 'The Newcastle Arms' which cannit opens it's doors til an hour later! (on police orders!) before heedin' for Barrack Road ootside The Milburn Stand (where the busses leave from)
Then it's onward at snails pace with a huge 'dibble' escort of motorbike ootriders, black marias and Northumbria force helicopters to 'guide us' to 'yee naa where' for wor annual 'day of hate' in this 147th derby match since season 1888-1889!
Rumour haz it that we will be 'locked in' til an hour after the end of the match, arrivin' back on Tyneside aroond aboot five thorty-ish!??
It's certain to be a very lang day!
Match report to follow on Monday---"Let's hope it's a 'good-un'!"
In the meeentime!--av 'dug up' the archive report from wor match @ joker park in 1970, which waz the last time yi cud 'pay @ the gate' to get in! (they made them 'aall ticket' after this)
