|"THE TOON GRAVY TRAIN IS COMIN'!"---PASS THE OXO PLEEEEZE!"|
Tomorrow, and anly for the THORD time this century we are playin' on a NEW groond for an FA Cup tie!
The othaaz bein' Cheltenham in 2006 and (ne Where Near!)Brighton in 2012!
In total this will be mee 108th leegue groond visited watchin' The Toon of the CURRENT teams in the Futbaall Leegue! (IF? aa make it to the 'Kassam'!)
80 in total if yi DIVVINT include the old groonds! (Maine Road, Highbury, Joker Park etc!)
The decision waz made that it would be 'train' to Durham and then 'car' to Oxfaad, az the train fare of £144 retorn woz considered tooooo much by many of us!
Jimmy (the Riddle) who lives near Durham had said that he would take hiz 'jam-jar' if the train fare woz 'too high' <(£144 sureleee iz!) and so the decision woz made to gan with him! (£7 train retorn to Durham--£30 in petrol each to Oxfaad and back!)
1,800 Toon fans will be present in the 12,000 capacity crowd
There will of course be a FULL Geordie Times match report which will be online sometime on Sunday--(or Munday if we 'baallz it up'!)
