"IT'S AALL YOGI BEAR'S FAULT!"

Posted 'high noon bells' Wednesday 11th October 2017
"HA! HA!--IT'S ALL MY FAULT THAT 'THE TOON ARMY'
HAVE GOT TO TRAVEL TO LONDON THIS XMAS!"

At last the FA have admitted that there WILL BE live games on Xmas Eve, with chief executive Peter Scudamore sayin' that aall games chosen will kick off before '4 bells'! ("ER!"---sorry! That shud read RICHARD Scudamore!---Peter Scudamore woz a jockey!)

So that's aall reet then???---shud wor game at 'The Jellied Eels Mob' (West Ham) be one of 'the chosen few', then it will kick off anytime between '11 bells' in the mornin' and '3 bells' in the afternoon!---It STILL doesn't make it any easier for travel arrangements az the train and air prices will be at a premium and the roads will be 'rammed' on Xmas Eve of course with friends and family travellin to see loved ones ower the festive period!

Wot it meenz in effect---IZ!---we will be forced to travel doon to London the day before and hope (against hope!) to catch the last train back to Tyneside after the game! (dependin on the kick off time of course!)

To compound things--and make it a bit more expensive to travel' the Xmas fixtures for live telly, due to be announced this week, wont now be announced til October 19th (the nearer the game--the more expensive the tickets are!)

Yogi Bear, who invented the TV haz got a lot to answer for, az before hiz 'invention' aall games kicked off at '3 bells' on a Saturday or '7 30 bells' midweek ("ER!"---or woz it LOGIE BAIRD who invented the telly?)  🔻
