|THE LAST WE WERE HERE---LAST MONTH!---LOST 3-1 !|
"CAN WE HAVE A FEBRUARY FA CUP TIE PLEEEZE!!!"
We heed for 'the smoke' (London) once again---this time for an FA Cup tie v Chelski at Stamford Bridge on Sunday, with a ridiculous '1 30 bells' kick off time for live telly! (We were anly here last month when we lost 3-1 in the leegue!)
Those Toon fans travellin by train on the day are ' chancin it' as ANY delays and they are 'cattle trucked' (F****D!)
Those gannin by coach or car will have to leave at the ungodly hour of '5 bells' to make the start!
We have taken an allocation of just 3,000 tickets and we have ne idea if we have sold the lot?
We fully expect a weakened team (unlike the last roond v Luton) az we have a crucial leegue game at home to Bornley next Wednesday!
(New signin Kenedy iz ineligible to play)
Because of the kick off time The Geordie Times entourage iz leavin tomorrow for (yet anothaa) overneet stay!
The most shockin' cup stat we have foond iz that since wor beloved? owner 'The Fat Controller', haz haz been in 'control' (since 2007), we have failed to get past the FA Cup 3rd roond stage on NINE occasions and have been knocked oot at the 4th roond stage ne less than on FOWER (4) occasions!
And NUFC have NEVAA reached the 5th roond under hiz 'leadership'!!!
In that time we have NEVAA got into February in the competition, with wor latest 'date exit' bein' at Oxfaad last season (Jan 28) and Brightin on the same date in 2012!
A TRULEEE SHOCKIN STAT!----IZ IT ANY WONDER THE LOYAL FANS WANT RID OF HIM!?
(And this doesnt include 2 relegations and several othaa relegatoin battles--includin this season!)
More to follow on aall this tomorrow when we will be on the train to King's Cross (London)
Updated Saturday from 'high noon bells'
With just 4 and a half days left till the transfor window closes, we are still ne closer to a permanent signing than we were on Jan 1st!
The saga ower the price of Feyenoord striker Nic Jorgesen iz still ongoin with the Dutch club wantin much more than the £17 million we have offered so far!
It iz very worryin!-
Aalso Rafa haz indicated that az expected, he will be forced to field a weakened team at Chelski tomorrow, az we dont have enough quality players to cope with the demands of Leegue and FA Cup fixtures!
