THE TOON v THE CHELSKI OAPs *** @ DINNAATIME TOOODAY!

Posted '9:50am bells' Saturday 6th December 2014

"5-1 to 'The Geordie Boys'?"

We face the dauntin' task of beatin' the current seemingleee invincible Chelski side who havvent lost a game this season so far!
The game kicks off @ '12:45 bells' and iz live on BT Sports.

It would be very nice indeed to wipe that 'non smile' of Jose Mourinho's face <(if yi see worra meeen!?) and claim the three points this afternoon!

It isn't beyond the realms of possibility that we can be the forst side to put a dent in the west Londoners armour and a white hot atmosphere iz guaranteed @ St James' Park in just a few short hours time!

History lesson: Wor forst ever meetin' with Chelski @ St James' Park occurred 107 years ago on Saturday September 14th 1907 when we won 1-0 thanx to a goal by 'one' Robert Orr, in front of a 35,000 crowd!

'Geordie Times' history: A great occasion for me az we slaughtered them 5-1 ! under the huge 150 foot high floodlights, (that yoo used to be able to see from miles away!) on a Wednesday neet, 47 lang years ago in August 1967, in front of 34,809 @ St James'

I waz in the old standin' Leazes End on that memorable neet and wor goals were scored by 'Ankle's' Bennett, Wyn (the leap) Davies (who got 2), Dave Elliott and Tommy Robson
It cost me 'half a crown' to get in (2s 6d in old money) <(12 1/2 pence today!) and the match programme waz 'a bob' (1 shilling in old money) <(5p!)

If ONLY we can repeat that result today???

And finally! Congratulations to 'The Spartans of Blyth' for their fantastic FA Cup win against 'The Monkeyhangers of Hartlepool' last neet. They came from a goal doon to spectacularly win the tie in the 90th minute!
Lets hope (and pray!) that we DIVVINT get them in the thord roond draw on Monday neet (Or 'The Heedbangers' of Gatesheed, shud they get through tomorrow!)  TWO 'banana skins' if ever there waz one! <(If yi see worra meeen!?)

Full 'Geordie Times' match report on today's Chelski game will be published online sometime tomorrow!
