(Sorry aboot the blurred pic, but a'd had a bit to drink by this time!)
Tomorrow we heed for "Landan's eeest end" where we take on 'The Jellied Eels Mob' of West Ham @ The Boleyn Groond!
Aall 3,000 places allocated behind 'The David Fishwick Stand'? <(nevaa knew they had a player called 'Fishwick?---Soonds a bit 'fishy' to me?) have been sold, ensurin' a canny atmosphere come '3 bells'!
News that the trains are aall 'dry' both DOON and BACK from King's Cross for this game haz been conformed by the Transport Dibble, az the fixture iz regarded az 'Category B' for 'Bovver'!
This stems from wor pre season in Jawmany when both the eest Landan mob and 'us' played in the Schalke Tournament, when there waz a bit "bovver" between the two sets of fans!
Anyway!--we'll just have to abstain from the 'hootch' for 3 hours, before heedin' for 'The Overdraft' boozer in East Ham for wor liquid luncheon, which iz aboot a 20 minute waalk from the ground
We are gannin for wor SEVENTH win 'on the boonce', while the home side are flyin' high az well under the guidance of 'Big Fat Sam'
