Orly tomorrow mornin' we heed for the 'delights'? of "sarf Landan" where we take on Critstil Paliss at Selhorst Park in wot haz become a "must get sommik" game, after 6 winless competitive games!
The omens however!--- ARE on wor side, az we have anly lost once there against them, since 1983-1984 in the 9 games played! (won 6, drawn 2, lost 1)
WE have nee idea if Jonjo Shelvey or Salomon Rondon will be in the startin line up, but lets look on the positive side for once this season and hopefully we will put up a good show and get a result!
Wor allocation of 2,900 tickets have finally sold oot---but not til they went on general sale--which shows the disillusionment among wor away followin' at the moment!
On another subject---we had to have a wry smile when we hord that anly 40,000 could be bothered to attend Man City's Champions Leegue tie v Lyon on Wedinzday neet!
2 very old and arrogant 'City' fans took the p**s oot of us before wor game there a fortneet ago, singin', "You've got Mike Ashley you should have had ours!" (the sheiks!)
They lost 2-1 to Lyon in a shock result and aa couldn't help wunderin' if these smug bustards were part of the miserable 'atmosphere free' crowd at 'The Emptyhad', or if they decided to watch it on the telly like the 13,000 fair weather fans who didn't fill the empty seats, like they did when they played us (attendance: 53,000)
Az the old sayin gans: "Wot gans aroond comes aroond!"
CAN YOO SPOT THE MAN CITY FANS
DISGUISED AZ EMPTY BLUE SEATS!?
