THE TOON v "NE WHERE NEAR" BRIGHTIN *** SATURDAY AFTERNOOON

Posted '2:00pm bells' Thorsday 18th October 2018
ST. JAMES' PARK

Havin' not won a competitive game since the end of last season, NUFC gan into the weekend game in desperate need of 3 points!

3 of wor next 4 games are at home and we reeely must get sommik from them or else we will be in deep deep trouble! (or shud that be deeper trouble!)

Rumours that yet anothaa very rich consortium iz puttin' in a bid for the club simply divvint wash anymore and it looks likely that we will be stuck with 'The Fat Controller' for a considerable time more!

Soloman Rondon iz STILL not fit to play and so a forward line of eethaa Joselu and Perez OR Muto and Perez looks to be the options Rafa haz for the game!
Kenedy looks set to start but Ciaron Clark looks doubtful

Ironically tickets are still on sale for this match, while "ower the waataa" in Dunston, 3 miles away, their game v Gatesheed in the FA Cup iz a complete selloot, with every one of the 2,500 tickets sold! (the groonds capacity)
AND 3 MILES AWAY!
FEDERATION PARK, DUNSTON (aka: UTS STADIUM)

The Geordie Times and many Toon fans will be at that game which kicks off at '12:30 bells' and then rush ower The Redheugh Bridge for wor '3 bells' kick off @ SJP! (a 10 minutes drive away)

A match report on both games will appear here sometime on Sunday!


Footnote: Brightin's groond iz in a place caalled 'Falmer' and iz "Ne where near Brightin"---hence wor name for them!
"Ower the waataa" meenz "Across the river Tyne" in Geordie slang
