Tomorrow we face yet anothaa London club at St. James' Park and after 4 defeats to Sporz, The Arse, Chelski and West Ham it iz time to end the 'hoodoo' and get wor forst home victory ower a 'capital city side' this season.
Reeely there shud be 'ne problem' az Fulim are rock bottom of the table havin' anly taken ONE solitary point on their travels this season!
BUT Mitro will be playin' and we aall naa wot he can de----lets hope he cannit de it tomorrow afternooon!
Yedlin iz available for us after suspension and Fernandez iz fit again to play---however Shelvey, Clark and sub goalie Darlow are aall still carryin injuries and are ruled oot
With just 2 home wins oot of 9 and 7 defeats, it iz vital to get the 3 points which would take us 10 points clear of *'The Cottage Pies', especially az we face 'The Liverbirds' at Anfield on Boxin' Day and then Wotfaad away 3 days later!
*The Cottage Pies--an explanation: Fulim play at Craven COTTAGE---get it?
Az per usual a full and compreeehensive match report will appear in The Geordie Times sometime on Sunday!
*We say 'Black Eye Friday' az this iz the day that The Toon gets swamped with Xmas 'do's on the last Friday before Xmas and invariably drunken fights break oot in the packed bars and clubs!--with 'black eyes' the predictable outcome!
In othaa news, aall 2,800 away tickets have been sold for wor RESORVES/U21s Checkatrade Trophy game v sund'lind's forst team at 'The SOS' (Stadium Of "Sshhh!-yee naa wot!") on Tuesday January 8th, despite the mackems tryin to put us off gannin by chargin a ridiculous £15 for tickets (5 times az much az the charged in the last roond!)
This woz NEVAA gannin to put us off and predicably aall available tickets have been snapped up, just days after gannin on sale----to see wor RESORVES divvint forget!!!
Under competition rules NUFC are entitled to 10% of the 48,000 capacity, which iz "er!"---4,800 seats---so we have requested 2,000 more tickets!---It aall depends on wot numbers that The Northumbria Dibble force can cope with!
