THE TOON v THE ARSE *** TOMORROW AFTERNOOON!

Updated 'high noon bells' Friday 20th March 2015
"LOOK THROUGH ANY WINDOW---YEAH!"---'THE GALLOWGATE END'----
BUT FROM WHICH TOON BOOZER WAZ THIS PICTURE TAKEN?
(ANSWER ON SUNDAY!)


Forst of aall--apologeeez for not updatin' 'The Geordie Times' on a more regular basis like aa used to--but lang workin' hours are the blame for this and some days aa just havvent got the time!

We gan into Saturdays game against the high flyin' 'Arseholes' of Islington', needin' at least a point to drag us forthaa from 'the abyss'!
Bornley's totally unexpected win against 'The Blue Moonies of Manchester' last week sees us just 10 points above them followin' wor 'no show' @ Goodison Park last Sunday!

In othaa words--we are still not completleee safe and are relyin' on othaa clubs at the bottom to 'cock it up' this weekend az 'The Arse' are firm favorites to 'wipe the floor' with us!

Missin' of course are both Cisse and Coloccini through suspension and just who iz gannin to lead the line on Saturday and shore up wor defence now---iz anybodys guess???
'Injury plagued' az well, we face Arsene Winger's side with a depleted line-up and can anly 'hope for the best'!
Othaa players missin', include Steve Taylor, De Jong, Dummett, Haidara, Tiote, Abeid, Good and Aarons

Carver said yesterday: "I only have 13 fit outfield players plus 2 goalies available for Saturday!" <(a ready made excuse shud we lose!) 
   
'Pieman Carver's' record in charge now reads: Played 11, won just 2, drawn 3 and lost 6 times!  (At home we have won just once since the beginnin' of January!)  

It's not hiz fault entirely of course, az Pardew 'jumped ship' unexpectedly at the end of December and with ne signins in the January transfor window, wor predicament iz bein' 'brought home to roost', followin' the failure of 'The Fat Controller' to 'put hiz miserly hand in hiz pocket'!

'History lesson': 125 years ago: Woolwich Arsenal (az they were then known) forst came to St James' Park on 30th September 1893 and were slaughtered  6-0! by a rampant Toon side in an old 2nd Division game  
A double hat-trick from Bill Thompson and Joe Wallace secured the victory in front of a 2,000 crowd!

Aall time record: Played 175, won 66, drawn 38 and lost 71 times

Geordie Times history: 1967, old 1st Division: A 2-1 win 48 years ago, again on 30th September, when a Pop Robson penalty and a goal from Wyn Davies in front of 33,377 gave us the 2 points <(2 points for a win in them days!)
IF anly it waz the 30th of SEPTEMBER tomorrow! <(if anly!) *

A full Geordie Times match report will be forthcomin' sometime on Sunday!
