|FA CUP ACTION @ ST JAMES' PARK IN JANUARY
CARDIFF WON 2-1 !
(View from The Leazes End)
For the forst time in livin' memory the biggest futbaall match on Tyneside this weekend will NOT feature NUFC!
This iz the result of pathetic performances and apathy amongst the Toon faitful <(no! we havvent mis -spelt it!) after a record breakin' six Premya Leegue defeats in a row and mid table mediocrity!
Many fans have taken to Facebook/Twitter etc. to say that they will be waalkin' oot on 60 minutes in anger at wor 'ambitionless aims' (it will be 60 years next season since we last won a major domestic trophy!) and best of luck to them in their protest!
We will NOT be dein' the same however! and will stay til the bitter end against 'The Red Herrings' 'come wot may', az we are sadists! And in any case, do yoo reely think that 'The Fat Controller' will be in the directors box to see it anyway????
On the othaa side of the Tyne and in complete contrast to wor plight, 'The Heedbangers of Gatesheed' will attempt to book their place at Wembley Stadium in the Conference play off final on Sunday afternoon against Grimsby Toon ('4:30 bells' kick off)
Az mentioned below we will be there to back 'The Heed', az we WILL this afternoon, backin' 'The Toon' <(az they say 'a dog iz for life'!) and we can anly hope (and pray!) for TWO victories ower this bank holiday weekend!
PS: Just foond oot that (az well az the above waalk oot) some Toon fans are gannin to waalk oot in the 27th minute (the last time we won T'he Leegue' waz way back in 1927!)---some are gannin to waalk oot in the 55th minute (wor last FA Cup success waz in 1955 AND the 69th minute (the last time we actually won a trophy of any description, namely The Inter Cities Fairs Cup waz in 1969!
(Will there be anybody left at full time?)
"ER!"---yes! We plan to waalk oot in protest in the 90th minute!, (plus injury time!)
Match reports on both games will follow sometime on Sunday (Toon) and bank holiday Monday (Heed)
