BROKEN NOSE BRUCE'S TIGER LILLYS v THE TOON *** THIS AFTERNOON!

Updated '8:30am bells' Saturday 1st March 2014

Followin' last Sunday's dramatic injury time winner @ 'The Living Breathing Animal Stadium' <(aka St James' Park!), we now must travel past The Humber bridge to take on the manager aall Toon fans 'love to hate' namely, 'Broken Nose Bruce' and hiz Hull Tigers @ The KC Stadium <(or whatever it's caalled now?)

Hull of course have enraged their fans by tryin' to change their name from 'City' to 'Tigers'---anothaa case of:  "It's MY trainset---and aa'll de wot aa want!" <(and divvint WE naa it!)

Aall taalk in 'The 'Ronny Gill' this week iz aboot the fact that we can still qualify for 'the dreaded' 'Europa Leegue' next season, shud we manage to finish sixth in the table!
A complicated combination of results could even meeen that we could qualify by finishin' SEVENTH! <(but divvint haad yi breath!)

However!---'Brucey's Boys' are on a run themsels and are fresh from an FA Cup 5th roond win ower Brighton and a 4-0 away win at Cardiff---so it won't be an easy ride @ 'The KC' come '3 bells' this afternoon!

Not suprizingleee, we have sold wor entire allocation of 2,500 tickets for the game (we tried to get more but Hull said: "NO!")  

Team news: Ben Arfa and Santon are oot injured---but fear not!---coz Sammy Ameobi and 'Marveaux the Magician'? are both available for selection! <("Wow!")
('Fab' Coloccini will aalso be missin' due to a family bereavement back in Argentina) 

'The Toon' are lookin' for their forst ever win @ 'The KC' in a competitive game and if we de it, it will be wor 100th success on the road since we joined 'The Premyaa'!

For the record, fower of us are settin' off in 'The Caped Crusader's' 'Batmobile' in half an hours time---the othaa three bein': 'little ol' me'!, <('The Mad-Sad Groundhopper'), 'The Mad Professor' and 'Peddlin' Pensioner Paul'!  <("Er!"--he 'peddles' a push bike!---NOT contraband!)

A full 'Geordie Times' match report will of course appear here sometime 2moro!
