|THE GEORDIE TIMES'Z FORST DERBY GAME IN 1967 *** NUFC WON 2-1 !|
@ '1:30 bells' this afternoon we kick off in the BIGGEST game of wor season so far, when we entertain the mackems in the 151st Tyne/wear derby!
We can anly hope that we fare better than we have in the last 3 and collect the 3 points to propel us back up the table in this 'see-saw season'
Jak Alnwick will be in goal again and we can anly hope that he plays like he did in the 2nd half against Chelski in wor last home game and 'not play' like he did @ Sporz last Wednesday! (17 year old Freddie Woodman iz hiz cover!)
The 'liquid lubrication locations' are aall openin' @ '10:00 bells' and after the events of MH17 we hope that there iz ne trouble az 'the mackems' did start off a fund that raised £33,000 for 'The Undertaker's' and 'Liam from the Lamp's' family!
Theeze of course were two of wor great friends and they are sadly missed by aall!
We understand that az well az the usual 17th minutes applause for John and Liam there will aalso be applause in the 33rd minute for the mackems who started off the fund! <(thanx lads 'n' lasses!)
A full 'Geordie Times' match report on the game will be forthcomin' sometime on Munday when aa sober up!
"HOWAY THE TOON!"
