THE TOON (GEORDIELAND) v SWANZEE ( SOOTH WALES) *** WORLD CUP FINAL 2015! ***THIS AFTERNOOON!

Posted '11:18am bells' Saturday 25th April 2015

This afternoon we face 'The Swan Lakers' from sooth Wales in wot heed coach John 'Pieman' Carver describes in the 'Ronny-Gill' az a 'World Cup Final game'!

Quote: "We have been preparing for it like a World Cup final!---That's how important it iz!"

Carver aalso says that the planned protests ARE affectin' the players, despite sayin' exactly the opposite after the Sporz game last Sunday!?--- <("Yi want to mek yi mind up, bonny lad!")

CEDRIC THE SWAN (AND SIGNETS!)
The attendance iz highly likely to be less than against Sporz, simply because 'Cedric the Swan' and hiz 'Signets' will bring less than a third of the support that Sporz brought on Sunday, which waz 3,000 >>>

We gan into the game tryin' to avoid wor SEVENTH defeat on the bounce and Carver iz desperate not to beat Pardew from last season who aalso lost six in a row!
Wor home record under Carver's stewardship iz ONE win in FOWER months!---(The Natives are gettin' restless!)

History lesson: We forst played Swansea 'Town' <(az they were then known) in an FA Cup tie @ St James' durin' the 2nd World War on January 15th 1915 when we drew 1-1 in front of a 30,005 crowd. Bill McCracken got wor goal from the penalty spot! (We won the replay 2-0!)

Geordie Times history: 35 years ago this month, when we lost 3-1 in front of just 14,314 fans in an old Division 2 game. (Alan Shoulder got wor solitary goal through a penalty)

42 meetings: 22 wins, 7 draws and 13 defeats in total

A full 'Geordie Times' match report and pix of us liftin' the World Cup will appear here on Sunday!
