|SJP FROM CHINATOON|
We face a club called 'The Robins' for the 2nd time in fower days (aalso Bristol City's nickname) and this will be their forst ever visit to SJP.
The anly othaa time we have played them waz away in the FA Cup in 2005 when we won 2-0 with goals from Michael Chopra and Scott Parker (see archive grounds list in right hand column ---ground 255)
It's a glorious day here on Tyneside az aa look oot mee window across the sacred Tyne River and with the kids still bein' off school and anly a fiver for them to get in, we expect loads of them to be in attendance tooneet (inc. mee 6 year old grandson Jamie!)
Therefore 'The Geordie Times' predicts a crowd of aroond aboot 25,000 for this Leegue Cup tie!
Aleksander Mitrovic iz now free to play and we fully expect him to play some part in the game followin' suspension and we expect Karl Darlow to be in goal with Matz Sels rested!
A full match report will appear here sometime tomorrow!
PS: 'The Geordie Times' waz at Dagenham and Redbridge last neet to watch wor U23s play West Ham's equivalent and a full match and drinkin' den report will appear here later this week when aa get time to de it! (we lost 3-1---Heardman waz wor goalscorer)
