THE TOON v THE MANC MUPPETEERS/COCKNEY REDS *** TOMORROW NEET!

Posted 'high noon bells' Tuesday 3rd March 2015

'The Cockney Reds of Salford' come to Toon tomorrow evenin' in wot iz wor 2nd home game in 5 days! ('7:45 bells'---live on BT Sport)

We very much doubt if they will play az badly az 'The Hazbeenz & Villians' did on Saturday, but we can anly live in hope!

Louis Van Crash <(apparently he's had loads of road accidents!) brings hiz 4th placed side to SJP, lookin' for hiz forst ever win against us at wor place in hiz 3rd attempt!
(He waz manager of Barcelona in 1997 when we won 3-2 and then AZ Alkmaar in 2007 when we won 4-2!)

Wor home record against Man U however doesn't make good readin' with just ONE win in the last ELEVEN games and losin' EIGHT times!

WE sit cemented in 11th place, 5 points above Palace in 12th and 4 points behind Stoke in 10th and 'The Fat Controller's wish that we shud finish in mid-table mediocrity looks likely to come to fruition!

History lesson: We forst played 'Newton Heath' <(az Man U were then known) @ SJP 120 years ago, when we won 3-0 on 13th April 1895.
Bill Thompson, John McNee and Will Milne got wor goals in an old 2nd Division game played oot in front of 4,000 spectators!

Geordie Times history: A 2-2 draw in 1967 when The Leazes End sang "Bobby iz a Geordie!" to Man U centre forward Bobby Charlton! <(Can't imagine that happinin' tomorrow neet, IF he decides to torn up in the Directors Box,--- can yoo?) 

Jim Iley and Tommy Robson got wor goals that December day az a 48,639 crowd watched on!

Wor aall time record against them isn't good havin' lost twice az many games az we have won! 
(Games played: 160---Won 41, Drawn 37 and lost 82!)

A full Geordie Times match report will appear here sometime on Thorsday!
