|THE MILBURN STAND FROM BARRACK ROAD|
Tomorrow afternoon at '3 bells' we attempt to win wor forst game of the season when we take on 'The Elton John Mob' at HQ!
Salamon Rondon iz expected to start, givin the much needed forward line a boost before the game!
Yet again we MUST win this game---but I have said this so many times this season that I am 'finkin aboot gettin' a tape recordin made of it!
THE MEDIA 'STICK THE KNIFE IN!'
Wor lowest home crowd of 'just' 50,329 v Brightin haz been given az an indication of us voting with wor feet and stayin' away!.
HOWEVER!---In the previous 4 games before Brightin the away section woz sold oot with 3,200 fans from Sporz, Chelski, The Arse and Lestaa!
Brightin anly brought 1,600 fans
So the number of Toon fans in the groond this season iz az follows:
Sporz---Attendance: 51,749 - 3,200 away fans = 48,549 Toon fans
Chelski---51,791 - 3,200 away fans = 48,591 Toon fans
The Arse---52,165 - 3,200 away fans = 48,965 Toon fans
Lestaa---51,523 - 3,200 away fans = 48,323 Toon fans
Brightin---50,329 -1,600 away fans = 48,729 Toon fans
So this actually meeenz that Toon fans attendin' the Brightin game waz the 2nd highest oot of 5!
Az Wotfaad are bringin even fewer fans than Brightin (1,400 tickets sold) it will be very interestin' to see if the media slag us off shud the attendance be the lowest of the season because of this!
NICE or NAUSEATING ?
Much haz been written this week aboot wor club captain Jamaal Lascelles sayin' that wor 'beloved owner' known affectionately az 'The Fat Controller' (he 'controls' wor miserable lives!) iz "A nice guy' after signin' a new 6 year contract with NUFC
He haz said that the protests are affectin the players on the pitch, which seems a very good excuse for NE wins in ELEVEN attempts this season! (The REEEL reason we cant win iz because we cant score enough goals (ne shots on target last week at Sooothampton, for example!)
He woz quizzed on Radio Newcasil last neet, sayin' to a fan who had phoned up, that he had been here for 4 years and that he had met wor owner just ONCE in aall that time, when they went for that infamous meal in Ponteland a few weeks back!
It haz been reported in 'The Sun' that this "Nice guy" threatened to "knock oot" a Toon fan, who confronted him in The Paradise Curry House in Hampstead, west London orlier this week for caallin him "A parasite!"
A "Nice guy!" OR a "Parasite!"---we leave yoo to draw your own conclusions!
PS: Its 'bonfire neet' on November 5th, when Geordies will be puttin' a certain 'guy' on top of their bonfires! (NOT an effigy of Guy Fawkes, by the way!)
|SOMEWHERE NEAR ST. JAMES' PARK!|
A full match report and pix will appear hear on Sunday---sometime!
