The final curtain of this very lang and tirin' season finally comes to a close tomorrow @ '4 bells' in wot iz now a live telly game!
'The Arse' from 'Is'(lington) provide the opposition and thankfully! we are under ne pressure az the final relegation issue waz finally resolved last Tuesday, when wor opponents relegated 'The Blue Wigs' to 'the abyss' of 'The Championship' with a 4-1 victory!
We of course conceded SEVEN @ 'The Em' orlier on this season, so it's just az well we are safe!

Centre of attention gans to loyal servant Stevie Harper who will be takin' hiz final bow after 20 years and 199 games between the posts.
Rob Elliot's suspension and Tim Krul's lang torm injury meens that he gets hiz chance to say farewell to the near 50,000 loyalists who will be packed into St James' Park to see it! (The Arse have sold their 3,000 allocation)

A testimonial game for Steve against a certain Scottish 3rd Division club, by the name of 'Rangers', will provide the opposition <(and we don't meen 'Berwick' Rangers!), which probably take place sometime next season?

It iz highly like that Captain 'Fab' Coloccini could be playin' hiz last game for The Toon az well and he will be a sad loss if he decides to leave

We understand that anly a very few tickets remain for 'The Arse' game az aa write this, so if yi havvent got yours yet, yi'd better rush to the groond 'pronto' to get one!

Although there iz nowt at stake for us (apart from pride and revenge!), 'The Arse' are chasin' a Champions Leegue place with their arch "norf Landan" rivals 'Sporz', for they are anly ones who can catch them and they just happen to be playin' the SMBs @ White Hart Lane at the same time <(live telly az well we understand!)
So it shud be an interestin' afternoon---to say the least!

Watch this space for more updates!
