At the time of writin' this we are still NINE points above the 'abyss' az wor season peters oot with 7 games to play.
On current form we are the worst side in the top flight and just where wor next points are comin' from iz anybodys guess?
We haven't won at Anfield for 20 years and are very unlikely to do so tomorrow evenin' eetha! <(Last 19 attempts---won 0, drawn 3, lost 16!)

We are travellin' ower the Pennines this afternoon in mee 'canny tranny' 9 seater <(4 seats empty!) and shud be in Scouseland by '6 bells' at the latest!
We told yoo that we had anly sold 850 tickets for The Anfield Road End orlier this week, but even that low number waz too high and in fact just 800 diehards will be in attendance come '8 bells' <(a shockin' indication of wor desperate plight!) <(high ticket prices (£52!), boycotts and live Munday neet telly are the main reasons for this!)
But 'The Geordie Times' 'sadists' WILL be there of course, watchin' through open fingers! to bring yoo a match report and pix on Tuesday!
