THE FRIAR TUCK MOB v THE TOON *** LEEGUE CUP 2ND ROOND!

Posted '3:50pm bells' Tuesday 28th August 2018

"WHY DON'T THEY JUST TOSS A COIN!?"

Tomorrow neet we heed for Sherwood Forest country where we are takin on Nottm Forest at The City Groond in the Leegue (Caraboa) Cup at '7:45 bells for wor 4th live telly game of the season so far! (Oot of 4!)

We fully expect that both teams will field serverly weakened sides to avoid injuries to key players!
Forest, because they are gannin for promotion from The Championship---And NUFC because we dont want to end up back there, come next May!

Big Al (not the the sheet metal workers son!) said that they, "May as well toss a coin!" to see who gans through to the next roond, az neethaa of us have any chance of winnin it once 'the big guns' enter at the 3rd roond stage!

Better still, why dont they play the 1st and 2nd roonds pre season instead of meaningless friendlies against the likes of St Patricks Athletic or Ausburg!?

NUFC have been allocated 4,000 tickets, but we fully expect that anly half that number will travel doon!

A full Geordie Times match and pub crawl report will appear here sometime on Thorsday!

Updated '10:00pm bells', Tuesday

The farce of The Leegue Cup woz laid bare when it woz reveeeled that ower 160 changes were made to Tuesday's 21 ties line ups from the weekend leegue fixtures, includin' Joey Barton's Fleetwood, who made ELEVEN changes from Saturday.  They lost 4-0 at Lestaa!

Perhaps they should rename it, 'The Reserves Leegue Cup'!😨
