THE TOON v THE MAD HATTERS *** FA CUP 3rd ROOND *** SATURDAY

Posted '12:41pm bells' Thorsday 4th January 2018ŕ
Updated Friday just before 'high noon bells'


A TEA PARTY SOMEWHERE IN LUTON!

We take a break from the 'grind' of the Premyaa Leegue when we take on 'The Mad Hatters' of Luton in the thord roond of the FA Cup at 3 bells this Saturday!

We fully expect that NUFC will field a weakened team involvin Woodman in goal and the likes of Saivet and Mitro up front!
Rafa haz since hinted that 'squad players' WILL be used!

Aa meeen!--- lets face reality--- we are very unlikely to 'win the cup', for when (of if) we get through, sooner or later we will get one of the so caalled 'big 6' and it will probably be: "Bye bye Wembley!---Hello free Saturday!"

'The Mad Hatters' will be backed by 7,500 fans for their 'cup final' (they took less than 300 in the last roond at Gatesheed!) (For the benefit of wor overseas reeders, Gatesheed's groond iz 2 miles from SJP on the south bank of the River Tyne!)

And because of unexpected high demand from Toon fans, parts of the top deck of The Milburn Stand will be opened (so we understand!)
Because of this a 40,000 plus crowd iz expected!
Not bad for a game where everybody naaz that we WILL play 'fringe players', against a Leegue 2 side! 

A full Geordie Times match report will appear here sometime on Sunday!
Az per usual---"Watch this space!"
