|THE STADIUM OF LIGHT!<^(THE 'PROPAA' ONE!)|
The build up to wor massive game against Benfica @ 'The Propaa Stadium of Light' in Lisbon<('Estadio Da Luz' in their lingo!) starts 'now'! az we prepare to travel to the Portugese capital this mornin' and a total of 3,800 tickets have been sold to Toon fans az we speak!
19 Toon players will travel to Lisbon and they are:
Krul, Elliot, Santon, Simpson, Perch, Yanga, Steve Taylor, Williamson, Anita, Sissoko, Cabaye, Gosling, Marveaux, Obertan, Gutierrez, Bigirimana, Shola Ameobi, Cisse and Campbell
Benfica are unbeaten in 24 Portugese Leegue fixtures and have scored ower 100 goals this season and won 6-1 against Rio Ave on Saturday az we were gettin' 'twanked' 4-0 in Mancland!
Oot of the eight teams left in the competition we are SIXTH favorites to win it, with the latest odds az follows:
The Chelski Pensioners 9/4
The Propaa Stadium of Light Brigade 4/1
Di Canio's Lazio Fascists 13/2
THE TOON 14/1
Ruban Kazan 16/1
The Basel Fawltys 33/1
In othaa words, they divvint give us much chance of winnin' it, but dafter things have happened in the past, like winnin' The Fairs Cup in 1969 against aall the odds aftaa finish TENTH in the 'then' Forst Division to qualify!
Of course! this will be 'The Geordie Times'z 300th groond watchin' the Toon<(if 'The mad-sad groundhopper' makes it!) and aa carnt think of a more fittin' place to 'de the triple ton', than the 'Real' Stadium of Light', in Lisbon!
Az per usual wor faithful computaa will gan into hibernation (yet agen!) for a couple of days in a few minutes and will 're-awake' sometime on Friday to bring 'YOO'---wor loyal reeeders a compreeehensive match and trip report ! "ZZZZZZZZzzzzzzzzz!!!!!"
