"AT LAST!---ANOTHAA SIGNING!"

NUFC have made wor 2nd signin' of the summer transfor window with the aqusishun (Geordie Times spelllin'!) of Ki Sung-Yueng from Swanzee on a free transfor az he became a free agent!

He iz a 29 year old Sooth Koree-an international and played in The World Cup v Sweden and Mexsico and woz an unused sub in their famous victory v Jawmany a few days ago!

He haz 93 caps for hiz country and haz played 166 Premyaa Leegue games for Swanzee!

Rafa said: "I am pleased to welcome Ki to the club. It was an easy decision to bring him here!
He is the captain of his country, a good character and he will be a good addition to the squad!"

Ki will be the 50th different nationality to play for us in the Premier Leegue!

Welcome to The Toon!

Aaltogether now!
"The Yueng ones, darling we're the Yueng ones!"

ING-ER-LAND KANED!

Posted '12:47pm bells' Friday 29th Joon 2018

FT Beljim resorves 1  Ing-er-land resorves 0

To leave top goal scorer and captain Harry Kane oot of the startin' X1 and make EIGHT changes to the team that annialated Panamaar 6-1 iz unforgiveable!
Wot the hell Soothgate woz 'fink'in aboot iz anybody's guess!

And so it came to pass that they lost 1-0 in a terrible match against Beljim (who themsels made NINE changes from their previous game!) and will face Columbee-aa (16th in the rankings!) instead of Japaan (61st in the rankings!) in the next roond, which could well end in tears yet again!----Lets hope not!

A total selection shambles if yoo ask us!

PS: Some have said that finishin 2nd meenz that Ing-er-land have an easier run in and will have an extra day off!
8 of those who played against Beljim WONT start against  Columbee-aa anyway so it wouldnt make any difference!---would it?

NUFC SEASON TICKET DEADLINE EXTENDED!

Posted 3:50pm bells' Tuesday 26th Joon 2018
"IZ THERE ANYBODY THERE!?"

News reaches The Geordie Times that the deadline for season tickets renewals haz been extended by a week!

Lookin' between the lines we 'fink' that many fans are unhappy aboot the 20% price hike for some tickets (£120 in some cases!),
plus the fact that we have still to sign an outfield player  in the summer transfor window! (ie: they wont commit themselves til then!)

Hopefully this will push wor 'beloved'? absent owner into givin ' Rafa the Gaffa' some much needed 'dosh' to buy players before the window closes!

Rafa haz been spotted at St James' Park today, (for talks we presume) to get some clarity to which direction we are headin' (up the table to Europe OR doon hill again!)

We will of course keep yoo, wor loyal subjects posted to any developments on that score!
(One day late az per usual!😨)

WOR 'BELOVED'? OWNER!
HAZZENT SPOKEN FOR OWER A YEAR!


With just one week to gan before 'The Toon' retorn for pre-season trainin', we are still me nearer naa-in if 'Rafa the Gaffa' will stay or gan!
With just one porminent transfor in the window so far (the porminent signin' of on loan goalie Martin Dubravka), anothaa season of struggle iz in the offing!

The silence from wor beloved? owner and MD? Iz deafenin' once again!
WOR 'BELOVED'? MD
(HAVE YOO EVER HORD HIM SPEAK?)

'The Fat Controller's' statement ower a year ago (the last time we hord him speak!), that he wants a major trophy or Champions Leegue place before he departs iz laughable to say the least!
(He woz recently compared with North Koree-aa'z dictator Kim Jong-un!) >>>>>

If thats the case and with minimal spendin', he will be with us for a very lang time indeed!

Yet again the end of season optimism haz been replaced by dispair az the new season fast approaces!!!

A BARROW LOAD OF TROUBLE!

Posted 'high noon bells' Munday 18th Joon 2018

Havin aalready booked the flight on the Munday mornin' of July 16th to Dublin for wor forst team game against St.Patricks Athletic on the Tuesday, we then find oot that wor U23s are playin' at Barrow on the Munday we travel to Dublin!

Az a'v nevaa been to Barrow's groond before, which iz a former leegue groond, it woz with long thought and careful consideration (aboot 5 seconds!) that I decided to 'bin' the flight to Dublin and catch the train to Barrow instead on the same day!
After the match in Barrow it's anothaa train orly the next mornin to Holyhead via Warrington---and then onward by ferry to Dublin!

A bit of a carry on, but bein a former leegue side, Barrow's Holker Street groond iz one a'v aalways wanted to tick off 'mee list'!

"From Rushaa with Luz!" 
RED SQUARE, MOSCOW

The World Cup kicks off in Moscow @ '4 bells' this afternoon in the MAGnificent Luzhniki Stadium, which will aalso host the final!
'The NUFC mad-sad groundhoppers' have of course been there before (az yi'd expect!) when we played Anzi Makhachkala in the Europa Leegue (roond of 16) in a near desorted stadium az Anzi play in a war zone 1,000 miles away to the east of Moscow! (hence why the game woz played there!)

In total 73 Toon fans managed to get visas plus 30 Russians who aalso supported us!
The crowd woz 5,000 or so in this 78,000 seater stadium!

Below iz a match report from that game  (ground 298 on the list!)

Europa League round of 16 1st leg

(Brief trip report---more to follow much later!)


The lang trip to Rushaa started off on the Wednesday mornin' @ '3:30 bells' when the taxi pulled up and we were whisked off to Toon Airport for the '6 bells' flight to Brussels.

From there we boarded wor next flight not lang after landin' and arrived in Moscow some 12 hours after leavin' Tyneside.
Customs waz suprizingleee easy to get through, (which we didn't expect) and we were soon on wor way to wor hotel which waz an hours train ride away plus havin' to negotiate THREE Metro lines to get there!<(it waznt easy!)<(it waz aall in Rushan!)

It waz in the middle of newhere next to a buildin' site and after a quick wash n brush up it waz doon to the bar for a quick pint before heedin' off to Red Square!
Unbelieviblee it waz ower NINE QUID a pint and so I opted to stay 't-total' until we reached Red Square!<(a'd anly brung £100 spendin' money, thinkin' that that would be enough!)

One taxi ride later and we were there, but it wasnt cheap there eetha, with beer between four and six quid a pint!

Next day it waz match day and we decided to gan to the groond orly to suss the place oot before heedin' across Moscow to visit Locomotiv Moscow's groond in the suborbs!
"IF YIV EVER WONDERED WHY LOCOMOTIV MOSCOW
ARE SO CAALLED***THEN NOW YI NAA!"

Temperatures were reportedly minus ten in the bitin' wind and so (az yi de!) several liquids were consumed before heedin' back to Red Square for the afternoon session.
From there it waz onward to the match which kicked off at '9 bells' local time (5 in England)

TOON FANS TAKE OWER THE LONDON GRILL
NEXT TO MOSCOW'S RED SQUARE!

70 odd faithful who had managed to get visas in time were in the away section behind the goal, plus a fortha 30 or so Rushans who were there to support us, givin us a total followin' of ower 100!
SOME OF THE 73 TOON FANS---LOOKIN TOWARDS
THE ANZI FANS IN THE MAIN STAND


Anzi fans were in the main stand and there looked to be 4 or 5,000 of them who had made the thoosand mile jorney from Dagestan az the match kicked off, with the rest of the 78,000 seater stadium totally empty!




"IZ THERE ANYBODY THERE!?"
(Apart from the 'Secret Police'!)
The temperature had dropped sharply by this time and mee 'plates of meat' were startin' to freeze up, despite iz havin' two pairs of thick socks on!
And az predicted by us, an understrength Toon X1 side started the game. (see team line up below)

The forst half waz az borin' az it gets and the anly action of note waz when Rob Elliot in The Toon goal tipped a shot ower the bar near the end of the half!
The plastic pitch didnt help of course and the 2nd half wasnt much better although Ben Arfa makin' hiz retorn after injury shud have done better when he tried to chip their keeper in front of the 73 Toon fans!
 Obertan aalso had a rare shot that he blazed ower the bar but that waz aboot it and we look forward to the 2nd leg next Thorsday @ St James'

Toon team: Elliot, Simpson, Yanga, Perch, Haidara, Cabaye (Tiote 84), Anita (Steve Taylor 75), Ben Arfa (Shola Ameobi 64), Marveaux, Obertan, Sissoko 

Attendance: 5,000 (73 Toon fans plus 30 Rushan Geordies az mentioned!)

It waz then back to Red Square for somemore liquid refrehments before heedin' back to the hotel in the orly hours!

By the next day the 'bit' had run oot and we had to get some more to satisfy wor 'thirst requirements'! and it waz then the 'torturous' jorney back yem via the Moscow Metro/train/2 flights and then WOR Metro from Toon Airport and finally a bus from 'the Central' and I arrived at mee front door @ '10:30 pm bells last neet totally 'cream crackered'!--"ZZZZZzzzzz!!!!!"

FAIRS CUP WINNERS!---49th ANNIVORSARY!

Posted 'high noon bells' Sunday 11th Joon 2018

On this day 49 years ago 'The Toon' won the old Inter Cities Fairs Cup in the Hungarian capital of Budapest by beatin' Ujpest Dozsa 3-2 on the day and 6-2 on aggregate, after wor 
3-0 forst leg win a fortneet orlier .

I was still a schoolkid at the time and me and mee mate 'Billy the Skin' listened to the final on a crackly old valve radio in his bedroom of his muthaaz hoose as the game wasn't televised live.

It didn't look 'ower clever' by half time as we were two-nowt doon, but as the 2nd half started, Bobby Moncur vollied in to pull one back and Ujpest just collapsed after that.

Benny Arentoft got wor equaliser soon after  and then Alan Foggon got the winner from a rebounded shot off himsel? as the radio commentator screamed his heed off:"IT'S A GOAL!--IT'S A GOAL!", he shouted at the top of his voice, above the 'crattles' of the radio, and it was 'game ower' as the ref blew the final whistle soon after! 

The bedroom floor nearly collapsed as we jumped up and doon on the creakin' floorboards in jubulation, as, (just like the radio commentator) WE shouted at the top of WOR VOICES as well!

We celebrated wor win by runnin' doon nearby Whickham Highway wavin' an NUFC flag and a huge 'Rangers' 'William of Orange banner' depictin' a gadgie wearin' a funny lookin' hat, ridin' a white horse, (would you believe!) which Billy had 'half inched' as a souviner from the policehut at 'The Leazes End', after we'd played and beaten Rangers in the Fairs Cup semi final @ St James Park in May! 
(At the time we didn't have a clue aboot the 'significance ' of the sectarian nature of the banner---we were just schoolkids after aall!)

Some very puzzled motorists on the road nearly crashed their cars when they seen us!, but they 'didn't have a clue eetha' just wot we were dein', as we sang and danced and waved the huge banner! (which we could hardly lift as it was so heavy!)
"AAAHHH! BRILLIANT MEMORIES!"

BLAYDON RACES 156th ANNIVORSARY---TODAY!

Updated 'high noon bells' Friday 9th Joon 2018


Geordie Ridley***'Geordie hero'!

Today iz an historic day for Geordies everywhere---for today iz the 156th annivorsary of 'The Blaydon Races' song, which of course iz the Geordie National Anthem, written by Geordie Ridley in 1862.


Aaltogether now!---'Geordie Times' version!

BLAYDON RACES

"Aaa went to Blaydon Races!
t'was on the ninth of Joon!
ayteen hundred and sixty two!
on a summers afternoon!
we took the bus from Balbra's!
she was heavy laden!
away we went alang Collingwood Street!
that's on the road to Blaydon!"--

Chorus!
"Oh! mee lads! yi shud'iv seen us gannin!
passin the folks alang the road!
just az they were stanin'!
aall the lads and lasses there!
aall wi smilin' faces!
gannin alang the Scotswood Road!
to see the Blaydon Races!"
SCOTSWOOD ROAD (100th ANNIVERSARY PARADE 1962)

"We flew past Armstrong's factory!
and up to The Robin Adair!
just gannin doon ti the railway bridge!
the bus wheel flew off there!
the lasses lost their crinolines off!
the veils that hide their faces!
an' aw got two black eyes!
an' a broken nose!
in gan ti Blaydon Races!"



Chorus!

"An' when we put the wheel back on!
away wi went agen!
but them that had their noses broke!
they cam back ower yem!
some went to the dispensary!
and some to Doctor Gibbs'ss!
and some to the infirmary!
to mend their broken ribs'ss!"
DOCTOR GIBBS

Chorus!

"Noo when we got to paradise!
thor wes bonny gern begun!
there wes four and twenty on the bus!
man!---who they danced and sung!
they caalled on me to sing a sang!
aw sung them Paddy Fagen!
aw danced a jig and swung me twig!
the day aw went to Blaydon!"
'PARADISE' BRIDGE

Chorus!

"We swung across the chain bridge!
and into Blaydon toon!
the bellman he was caallin' there!
they caall him Jackie Broon!
aw saw him talkin' to some cheps!
and them he was persuadin'!
to gan and see Geordie Ridley's show!
at the Mechanics Hall in Blaydon!"

THE 'CHAIN BRIDGE'

Chorus!

(last vorse!)
"The rain it poor'd aw the day!
and myed the ground quite muddy!
Coffee Johnny had a white hat on!
they were shootin', "Whe stole the cuddy?"
there wes spice stalls and munkey shows!
an' aud wifes sellin' cider!
an' a chep wiv a ha'penny roond-aboot!
shottin', "Aw me lads, for riders!"
'COFFEE JOHNNY'

Chorus!
