THIS WEEK 114 YEARS AGO***THE ADMIRAL OF THE FLEET KICKS OFF
THE DERBY GAME v THE SMBs AT ST. JAMES' PARK
(LEAZES TERRACE (left) AND ST JAMES' STREET (right)
OWERLOOK THE PROCEEDINGS!)
News that Salomon Rondon will NOT be fit (again!) to play in wor game v Lestaa this comin' Saturday haz reached 'The Geordie Times' via carrier pigeon! >>>>>>>>>
So it will be the 'same old-same old' line up to try and get wor forst competitive win of the season at the 7th attempt!
'The Basil Brush Brigade' have sold 3,000 tickets for this game, but tickets are still on sale to Toon fans.
It will be interestin' to see the size of the crowd for 'this one' az wor visitors are the forst team ootside the 'big six' this season to visit SJP.
3 points are of utmost importance az wor next away game iz against Man U at The Theatre of Muppets a week later!
Shud we fail to beat Lestaa, then we could well be 'cut adrift' if we fail at Man U az well, before the 2nd international break of the season iz upon us in 3 weeks time!
PS: Just foond oot that Fernandez and Dummett are both injured az well and will miss the game!---It's aall gannin wrang!---isn't it just!
A full Geordie Times match and pix report will appear here sometime tomorrow!
