(SOMEWHERE OOTSIDE MELWOOD TRAININ' GROOND!)
This afternoon @ '2 bells' wor resorves played 'The Liverbirds' resorves at their Melwood trainin' groond in Liverpool behind closed doors!
Az we didn't fancy anotha 'Fulham Fiasco' (see 'ground 285 NOT Motspur Park', in the 'archive grounds list!) we decided not to attempt to get in, just in case we didint!.
We hord 'through the grapevine' that they had a huge fence aroond their trainin' groond to stop any 'pryin' eyes', so unlike 'Motspur Park', we would be unable to get a view of the game from any gaps in the fence!
Az per usual in theeze circumstances, we sent wor intrepid 'Stop the Pigeon' reporter, who flew ower the action and flew us back this report!
"The Toon won 2-1 with wor goals comin' from Yven Moyo with a side footer in the 22nd minute.
Mehdi Abeid doubled wor advantage ten mins later from the penalty spot after Donaldson waz scythed doon in the box.
Ngoo redused the deficient orly in the 2nd period for the home side but we hung on to win wor forst game for 'donkeys'!"
FINK THE MAD SAD GROUNDHOPPERS STATEMENT (on wor non attendance!)
"However!--- We refuse to be beaten and shud we play their junior team at their trainin' groond next season (when access iz guaranteed!) (and if we have a 'free day'?) then 'The Geordie Times mad-sad groundhoppers will be there in force!" ("Er!"---probably 2 or 3 of us at the most!)
Footnote: 'Chancer' and 'Mad-sad groundhopper' 'Glennn from Ashington' went doon and DID get in by 'sneakin past' the security bloke on the gate!---"well done mate"!
