|ACTION FROM WOR GAME IN MADEIRA|
AGAINST MARITIMO IN SEPTEMBER
('THE TOON' ARE IN THE 'HI VIZ' YELLOW STRIPS!)
Tooneet we play wor penultimate<(we naa aall the 'BIG' words!) game in the Europa Leegue group stage when we take on Maritimo @ St James' Park @ '8:05 bells'
A win against the groups bottom club will see us progress to the knockoot stage which begins in February and guarantee us 2nd place at least!
When we were in Belgium a fortneet back, we were taalkin to some Brugge fans after the game and they telt us that Maritimo hadn't brung ANY FANS AT AALL! when they'd played them at their place---so!---gannin on that assumption, and the fact that heavy rain and strong winds are forecast and that the game iz on live telly, (ESPN) we predict that this will be wor lowest crowd of the season, with less than 30,000 tornin up!
Squad rotation will again play a big part, so divvint expect the team who played in wor 'horror show' defeat against Swanzee in the Premya Leegue last Saturday to torn oot! (mebeez that's just az well!)
'Geordie Times' match report (az usual!) to follow sometime tomorrow!
