"OLD FERGIE'S LOST HIZ LIGGIES!"

Posted '3:00pm bells' Friday 28th December 2012


'Old Fogey Fergy' haz completleee 'lost hiz marbles' this time<(alang the 'Scotswood Road' perhaps?) by caallin' us: "A wee club in the north east!"

This 'wee club' were the forst one in the world to average gates of ower *30,000 in 1906-1907 (*33,235) and ower *50,000 in 1947-1948 az a SECOND DIVISION CLUB (*56,283) which iz STILL a world record to this day for a club ootside the 'top flight'!
(Man U's record average gate ootside the top flight iz *48,387 in 1974-1975)

NUFC are the ANLY club in the world to have averaged ower *50,000 in both the top flight and second grade futbaall!

Wor average gates when we were relegated in 2008-2009 waz 48,750!  An 'unwanted' world record we admit, which incidentlee iz HIGHER than the SMBs record average gate of *47,785 in 1947-1948 
(when Man U were famously relegated in 1973-1974 their average was *42,712!)

'Senile Dementure Septuagenarian' are the words I'm lookin' for I think!

'Through the Turnstiles...Again'

'Liggies' iz Geordie slang for 'Marbles'
