OFF THE RAILS!

Posted '4:38pm bells' Friday 14th Joon 2019
OR NOT AZ THE CASE MAY BE!
(IZ THAT WOR BELOVED OWNER 'THE FAT CONTROLLER'?)


Toon fans are facin' a travel nightmare on the teams 2nd away game of the season---accordin' to wor local rag 'The Ronny Gill'

We are due to travel to King's Cross on the bank holiday weekend  where we play Sporz at their new London abode, BUT aall trains from the north east terminate at Peterborough that weekend because King's Cross iz CLOSED!

Network Rail haz given the followin' advice: 'On Saturday and Sunday there will be no trains between Peterborough/Cambridge and London King's Cross!
You are advised NOT TO TRAVEL!---Customers are advised to travel on Thursday, Friday, and Tuesday for this weekend!'

Not much cop if the game iz on Saturday, Sunday or Munday---IZ IT!?

There are ways aroond this however, by catchin' a train to Chesterfeeeld or Sheffeeeld---and then onward to St Pancras Station not far from King's Cross!
A little inconveeeniant, but it's the anly way to dee it--apart from drivin' (not advisable on a bank holiday!)
The trains WILL be 'rammed' however, so mek sure yi book a seat!

NUFC FIXTURES 2019-2020

Posted '1:30pm bells' Thorsday 13th Joon 2019 (anly 4 and a half hours late!)

"SO IT WOZ FAKE NEWS!"

The 'leaked' fixture list yesterday for the new season woz 'fake news' and we will host 'The Arse' at home on a Sunday for live telly and NOT 'The Toffee Noses of Evaatin', away, as woz wrangly leaked!

NUFC Games 'cast in stone' that CANNIT be moved!
Just 2 so far!--The forst and last games of the season!
Sun 11th August: 'The Arse' at home '2:00 bells' live on SKY
Sun  17th May: 'The Liverbirds' at home '3:00 bells'
Telly dates for the rest of August and September are due to be released on 5th July---but divvint haad yer breath!



*36 games oot of the 38 are subject to change


*After wor game v 'The Arse' we then travel to the newly promoted 'Canary Custard Creams of Norwich' the following Saturday?(hopefully) and then anothaa away game the week after that, which will delight 'The NUFC mad-sad groundhoppers', when we travel to Sporz new abode in "Norf Landan!" for the very forst time!

We finish off August when we host Wotfaad who were slaughtered 6-0 in the FA Cup final against 'The Blue Moonies of Manchester'!

We then must travel to Anfield where we face Champions Leegue winners Liverpoool, who we host on the very last day of the season in May (hope they don't need to beat us to win the Leegue!?)

Ower the festive period we must travel to 'The Theatre of Muppets' on Boxin Day? to face Moan United and on New Years Day? we are at home to 'The Basil Brush Brigade of Lestaa'!

Of course---aall games are subject to change for live telly and opponents who are in European action!

We fully expect that 30 of wor games will be moved for live telly! (One aalready v 'The Arse' in wor forst game of the season!)

Aaall this in the wake of the total chaos and confusion which haz engulfed NUFC once again, az we still divvint naa who wor manager will be or who will own us, when the new season kicks off in 2 months time!? (Nee new players signed so far, eethaa!)

FAIRS CUP WINNERS!---50th ANNIVORSARY!

Posted 'high noon bells' Sunday 11th Joon 2019

On this day half a century 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!"
