THE TOON v WOLVERHAMPTON WANABEEZ *** PREMYAA LEEGUE 2018-2019

Posted '11:00am bells' Sunday 9th December 2018

This afternoon @ '4 bells' we face newly promoted Wolves @ St James' Park---and a win would propel us to 6 points above the drop zone after yesterdays results!  (4 of the 6 teams below us, lost--- Bornley and Cardiff won) 

We're not sure if Rafa will rotate the squad again, but with some tough games comin' up in the next month we reeely must get sommik oot of this game!
Schar iz suspended after reachin' 5 yellow cards and Hayden iz oot injured. Matt Richie retorns from suspension and both Dummett and Kenedy have returned to trainin'!

The Magpie Group have called off the planned boycott of the game because of takeower talks---but we 'fink' that not many would have took part anyway! (Certainly NOT me!)

NUFC v Wolves history lesson:
The 1st ever game between the 2 clubs took place ower 120 years ago in February 1898 @ St. James' Park, where Wolves won 4-2 in an old Division 1 game  (Jock Pendle scored both NUFC's goals)---20,000 attended

The last time we met woz 20 months ago @ Molineux, where NUFC won 1-0 in a Championship game. Mitrovic scored the anly goal in front of 24,876

Full record: Played 94, Won 39, Drawn 23, lost 32  

A full Geordie Times match report will appear here tomorrow---providin' mee laptop's still workin'! (Aa couldn't get it to work yesterday---but for some reason, unbeknown to man or beast, it haz decided to work today?)

HT 1-1  Perez for Toon
FT lost 2-1😨
