NUFC MAD-SAD GROUNDHOPPER NEWS *** NEW GROOND? (OR NOT AZ THE CASE MAY BE!)

Posted '1:01pm bells' Wednesday 17th February 2016

Due to yet anothaa 3rd roond exit from the FA Cup (and therefore anothaa 'free weekend') The Toon have arranged a friendly in La Manga, Spain for this Saturday when we play Lillestrom of Norway

However the logistics <(we naa aall the big words!) of gettin' there (and back!) are too much and the price iz a canny  'wack' az well!

On top of that wor 'beloved' manager? (or shud that read 'beleaguered' manager?) haz said that it iz a BEHIND CLOSED DOORS game anyway! (yesterday's Chron)
Lillestrom have said that it's NOT!---we just don't know for certain! (would yoo take the chance?) and so therefore we have scuppered this plan!

It might not be played on a proper groond anyway az it could be on one of the many trainin' pitches in the Spanish resort instead!

However!---one very mad-sad groundhopper IZ tekin' the chance and iz travellin' by BUS which takes 30 hours to get there!!!!
'Non flyer' Glennn from Ashington iz hiz name and he must be completleee mad to even think aboot it!
Best of luck mate---hope yoo get in!

Updated Thorsday

It haz been conformed that spectators WILL be allowed in---but the downside iz that it will be played on 'PITCH 'A' rathaa than the main stadium---aall that way to watch a match in a field!
