Posted 'just after high noon bells' Tuesday 29th August 2017

"CAN I HAVE A 99 WITH LOADS OF FLAKES AND LOLLIES PLEEEZE!?"

Tooneet wor U23s travel to Crewe for a Checkatrade Trophy group 'D' match at the renamed Alexandra Stadium (formely Gresty Road)

Toon fans will be housed in the ridiculously named 'ICE CREAM VAN STAND' (Dont believe me?---then see photo below!)

'The NUFC mad sad groundhoppers' WILL be represented by 2 or 3 fans who have never seen The Toon play here before! ('We' at 'The Geordie Times' were here in the orly 90s for a Leeegue Cup tie, which we won 4-3 after bein 3-0 doon!) (ie: most of us will give it 'a miss' az we've 'got the tee shirt' from this groond!)

NUFC mad-sad groundhopper rules:
If its a competitive first team game anywhere or on a new groond we must gan! (Includin' Europe) (Rule 1a !)

If its a competitive U23/reserve or junior game on a proper new groond, we must attempt to gan!
(ie: An enclosed groond with stands) (Games on trainin pitches/fields not compulsary!) (Rule17c !)

If its a forst team friendly on a new groond, we must attempt to gan ( not aalways possible if its in Europe or beyond!) (Rule 2d !)

If its a U23/reserve or junior competitive game on a groond we have previously visited, then we can 'give it a miss' (like Crewe) (rule 47b!)

PS: Crewe's Gresty Road groond ( az it woz then caalled!) woz mee 106th groond and 100th for a forst team game!
