THE TOON v SWANZEE **** SATURDAY AFTERNOOON!

Posted 'high noon bells' Friday 15th April 2016

Tomorrow we welcome Cedric the swan and hiz mates to SJP for yet anothaa game that we MUST win and hope that Norwich divvint!---although they are playin' the SMBs and of course we divvint want them to win eethaa!  (a 'draw' pleeeze!)

Theeeze are desperate times of course and the very fact that wor visitors have won their last 3 visits here, doesn't make good readin'!

The team news iz that Chancel Mbemba iz set to partner Jamaal Lascelles in central defence with Steve Taylor 'getting the bullet' aftaa hiz aaful display at Sooothampton last week!

Daryl Janmaat will be missin' after hiz 'argument' with a door/waall <(take your pick!) resulted in him breakin TWO fingers when he punched the 'said' solid object(s) with hiz fist when he waz substituted last week! < (the 'comedy club' just gans from strength to strength!)
And just who will be up front to score wor goals???---well your guess iz az good az mine and Rafa's!

We've simply GOT to win this game of course az defeat or a draw will surely condemn us to 'the abyss'!
Six games left to save wor bacon and a minimum of at least 4 wins against 'the above', 'The Blue Moonies' next Tuesday, 'The Liverbirds' a week on Saturday and then 'Pardew's Palace', 'The Hazbeen and Villians' and finally title chasers 'Sporz' on the last day of the season @ SJP---but will we still have a chance of survival by then???

There's one consulation though!---At least aa divvint have to drag meesel oot of mee 'scratcher' @ '3 bells' in the morning, like aa did for last weeks disastrous trip to Sooothampton----a ten minute bus ride this time!
 
A special mention to 'Barry' who worked in The Newcastle Arms on every match day for many (many!) years, pullin' pints for the thirsty regulars!
He anly missed TWO games in TWELVE YEARS of loyal service to T.T.T. ('The Toon Tipplers'!)   
Barry haz moved on to 'pastures new' <(ie: anothaa City centre boozer!) and he will be a big miss to 'The Arms'!

A full Geordie Times match report will appear here sometime in the future!---watch this space!
