Posted '10:30am bells' Sunday 23rd Joon 2019



With just one week of Rafa's contract to gan, we will find oot wor fate!---and it doesnt look good!

Rafa Benitez:

"And now the end is near--and so I face the final curtain!
I've done my level best--to keep us up--and that's for certain!
I love Newcastle fans--but I hate 'The Fat Controller'!
And I'm afraid to say--in 7 days--it could be over!"

TOON ST'RIP OFF'!

Posted '1:59pm bells' Friday 21st Joon 2019

It has been revealed by wor 'little sister' 'The Times' of London, that NUFC's new home shirt iz the most expensive in The Premyaa Leegue at an eye waaterin' £65 for a large, short sleeved adult shirt!

The club tell us that its "A tribute" to the Fairs Cup winning shirt from 1969?, but it looks nowt like it and iz one of the worst Toon shirts we have ever seen!
One thick black stripe doon the front and two thick white stripes to each side with the rest 'aall black' iz nothing like the 1969 iconic version and already fans have said they won't buy it!
Who are they tryin' to kid?
IT'S NOT FUNNY!"

THE FAIRS CUP SHIRT FROM 1969
SPOT THE DIFFERENCE!?

Meeenwhile!---and az you'd expect!---there iz absolutleee NEE news aboot Rafa's contract, which runs oot in 9 days----the possible takeower---or any new incomin' players----but "YES!" come and buy wor new extortionately priced home shirt, "yoo gullible idiots!"

Toon fans are facin' a travel nightmare on the teams 2nd away game of the season---accordin' to wor local rag 'The Ronny Gill'

We are due to travel to King's Cross on the bank holiday weekend  where we play Sporz at their new London abode, BUT aall trains from the north east terminate at Peterborough that weekend because King's Cross iz CLOSED!

Network Rail haz given the followin' advice: 'On Saturday and Sunday there will be no trains between Peterborough/Cambridge and London King's Cross!
You are advised NOT TO TRAVEL!---Customers are advised to travel on Thursday, Friday, and Tuesday for this weekend!'

Not much cop if the game iz on Saturday, Sunday or Munday---IZ IT!?

There are ways aroond this however, by catchin' a train to Chesterfeeeld or Sheffeeeld---and then onward to St Pancras Station not far from King's Cross!
A little inconveeeniant, but it's the anly way to dee it--apart from drivin' (not advisable on a bank holiday!)
The trains WILL be 'rammed' however, so mek sure yi book a seat!

NUFC FIXTURES 2019-2020

Posted '1:30pm bells' Thorsday 13th Joon 2019 (anly 4 and a half hours late!)

"SO IT WOZ FAKE NEWS!"

The 'leaked' fixture list yesterday for the new season woz 'fake news' and we will host 'The Arse' at home on a Sunday for live telly and NOT 'The Toffee Noses of Evaatin', away, as woz wrangly leaked!

NUFC Games 'cast in stone' that CANNIT be moved!
Just 2 so far!--The forst and last games of the season!
Sun 11th August: 'The Arse' at home '2:00 bells' live on SKY
Sun  17th May: 'The Liverbirds' at home '3:00 bells'
Telly dates for the rest of August and September are due to be released on 5th July---but divvint haad yer breath!



*36 games oot of the 38 are subject to change


*After wor game v 'The Arse' we then travel to the newly promoted 'Canary Custard Creams of Norwich' the following Saturday?(hopefully) and then anothaa away game the week after that, which will delight 'The NUFC mad-sad groundhoppers', when we travel to Sporz new abode in "Norf Landan!" for the very forst time!

We finish off August when we host Wotfaad who were slaughtered 6-0 in the FA Cup final against 'The Blue Moonies of Manchester'!

We then must travel to Anfield where we face Champions Leegue winners Liverpoool, who we host on the very last day of the season in May (hope they don't need to beat us to win the Leegue!?)

Ower the festive period we must travel to 'The Theatre of Muppets' on Boxin Day? to face Moan United and on New Years Day? we are at home to 'The Basil Brush Brigade of Lestaa'!

Of course---aall games are subject to change for live telly and opponents who are in European action!

We fully expect that 30 of wor games will be moved for live telly! (One aalready v 'The Arse' in wor forst game of the season!)

Aaall this in the wake of the total chaos and confusion which haz engulfed NUFC once again, az we still divvint naa who wor manager will be or who will own us, when the new season kicks off in 2 months time!? (Nee new players signed so far, eethaa!)

FAIRS CUP WINNERS!---50th ANNIVORSARY!

Posted 'high noon bells' Sunday 11th Joon 2019

On this day half a century ago 'The Toon' won the old Inter Cities Fairs Cup in the Hungarian capital of Budapest by beatin' Ujpest Dozsa 3-2 on the day and 6-2 on aggregate, after wor 
3-0 forst leg win a fortneet orlier .

I was still a schoolkid at the time and me and mee mate 'Billy the Skin' listened to the final on a crackly old valve radio in his bedroom of his muthaaz hoose as the game wasn't televised live.

It didn't look 'ower clever' by half time as we were two-nowt doon, but as the 2nd half started, Bobby Moncur vollied in to pull one back and Ujpest just collapsed after that.

Benny Arentoft got wor equaliser soon after  and then Alan Foggon got the winner from a rebounded shot off himsel? as the radio commentator screamed his heed off:"IT'S A GOAL!--IT'S A GOAL!", he shouted at the top of his voice, above the 'crattles' of the radio, and it was 'game ower' as the ref blew the final whistle soon after! 

The bedroom floor nearly collapsed as we jumped up and doon on the creakin' floorboards in jubulation, as, (just like the radio commentator) WE shouted at the top of WOR VOICES as well!

We celebrated wor win by runnin' doon nearby Whickham Highway wavin' an NUFC flag and a huge 'Rangers' 'William of Orange banner' depictin' a gadgie wearin' a funny lookin' hat, ridin' a white horse, (would you believe!) which Billy had 'half inched' as a souviner from the policehut at 'The Leazes End', after we'd played and beaten Rangers in the Fairs Cup semi final @ St James Park in May! 
(At the time we didn't have a clue aboot the 'significance ' of the sectarian nature of the banner---we were just schoolkids after aall!)

Some very puzzled motorists on the road nearly crashed their cars when they seen us!, but they 'didn't have a clue eetha' just wot we were dein', as we sang and danced and waved the huge banner! (which we could hardly lift as it was so heavy!)
"AAAHHH! BRILLIANT MEMORIES!"

BLAYDON RACES 157th ANNIVORSARY---TODAY!

Updated '9:35am bells' Friday 9th Joon 2019


Geordie Ridley***'Geordie hero'!

Today iz an historic day for Geordies everywhere---for today iz the 157th annivorsary of 'The Blaydon Races' song, which of course iz the Geordie National Anthem, written by Geordie Ridley in 1862.


Aaltogether now!---'Geordie Times' version!

BLAYDON RACES

"Aaa went to Blaydon Races!
t'was on the ninth of Joon!
ayteen hundred and sixty two!
on a summers afternoon!
we took the bus from Balbra's!
she was heavy laden!
away we went alang Collingwood Street!
that's on the road to Blaydon!"--


Chorus!
"Oh! mee lads! yi shud'iv seen us gannin!
passin the folks alang the road!
just az they were stanin'!
aall the lads and lasses there!
aall wi smilin' faces!
gannin alang the Scotswood Road!
to see the Blaydon Races!"
SCOTSWOOD ROAD (100th ANNIVERSARY PARADE 1962)

"We flew past Armstrong's factory!
and up to The Robin Adair!
just gannin doon ti the railway bridge!
the bus wheel flew off there!
the lasses lost their crinolines off!
the veils that hide their faces!
an' aw got two black eyes!
an' a broken nose!
in gan ti Blaydon Races!"

THE ROBIN ADAIR 


Chorus!

"An' when we put the wheel back on!
away wi went agen!
but them that had their noses broke!
they cam back ower yem!
some went to the dispensary!
and some to Doctor Gibbs'ss!
and some to the infirmary!
to mend their broken ribs'ss!"
DOCTOR GIBBS

Chorus!

"Noo when we got to paradise!
thor wes bonny gern begun!
there wes four and twenty on the bus!
man!---who they danced and sung!
they caalled on me to sing a sang!
aw sung them Paddy Fagen!
aw danced a jig and swung me twig!
the day aw went to Blaydon!"
'PARADISE' BRIDGE

Chorus!

"We swung across the chain bridge!
and into Blaydon toon!
the bellman he was caallin' there!
they caall him Jackie Broon!
aw saw him talkin' to some cheps!
and them he was persuadin'!
to gan and see Geordie Ridley's show!
at the Mechanics Hall in Blaydon!"

THE 'CHAIN BRIDGE'

Chorus!

(last vorse!)
"The rain it poor'd aw the day!
and myed the ground quite muddy!
Coffee Johnny had a white hat on!
they were shootin', "Whe stole the cuddy?"
there wes spice stalls and munkey shows!
an' aud wifes sellin' cider!
an' a chep wiv a ha'penny roond-aboot!
shottin', "Aw me lads, for riders!"
'COFFEE JOHNNY'

Chorus!

TURMOIL ON TYNESIDE 2!

Posted '1:55pm bells' Saturday 8th Joon 2019

NUFC fans are not the only ones who are in turmoil on Tyneside!

The other 'black n whites' from across the sacred Tyne river, Gatesheed F.C. have b een demoted from The National Leegue to The National Leegue North, after financial iregualities from their former far east owner!

2 Heedbanger fans have bought the club and the hope is that they can play at Gatesheed Stadium next season, after bein' kicked oot of their home by Gatesheed council for non payment of rent!

There is relief however, as it could have been much worse and they could have ended up in the Northern Leegue or worse!

They will have a few derbies as well, against arch rivals The Spartans of Blyth, Darlo and Spennymoor Toon.

We wish them well!

"IZ THAT A WASHIN' MACHINE--LIKE?"

Most of the ugly red, white and blue advertisin' signs, which have blighted SJP for years, have finally foond their 'rightful place' in a rubbish skip underneath The Milburn Stand!

We were told that they had been taken down for "cleaning", but just how do you clean advertisin' signs in a rubbish skip?

Wor eagle eyed paparazzi fotogrifaa took this exclusive fotograaf this mornin' as he passed the groond!

We have nee idea if this has anythin' to see with the proposed takeower, but we can only hope it's TRUE and that we will finally get rid of wor 'muthaa in law' 'The Fat Controller', who has been an uninvited 'get'--"sorry!" 'guest', for the past 12 bleak years!

Posted '1:37pm bells' Munday 3rd Joon 2019

With absolutleee nee progress bein' made (az far az we can see!) in the takeower saga, we now find worsels in 'yet anothaa fine mess!'
Will the takeower actually happen? ---Who naaz!
Will Rafa stay?--- Who naaz!
Will we sign ANY players in the transfor window?---Who naaz!

Not a word from NUFC aboot any of the above questions, so it looks more than likely that we will be in anothaa relegation dogfight come August, IF sommik doesn't happen very, very soon!

Of course we don't expect anything else from an owner who hardly ever speaks and a MD who we have never hord utter ONE WORD in the 12 years he haz been in this position!
Aaall we want iz some answers, whatever they may be!

This seems to happen every summer with incomin' transfors (or not!) and takeowers (or not!) the main taalkin points!----

NUFC v SAFC (average league attendances)

'The Geordie Times' haz  published below the average leegue attendances of both clubs from 1893 to 2019, startin' from 1893-1894 season and endin' on the current season, to date.

The SMBs claim that they are az loyal az The Toon fans and that they can match us in crowd figures throughoot the last 126 years of leegue futbaall between us!

Lets see if they are reet?---The SMBs joined The Futbaall Leegue in 1890 and NUFC joined in 1893 and so the average attendance figures are from the 1893-1894 season az we have ne NUFC data before that time.
Attendance figures are independant and are taken from three sources---'The Association of Football Statisticians', 'European Football Statisticians' and the excellent book, 'Through the Turnstiles', which gives every average gate for every club who have ever played in The Futbaall Leegue! (figures may differ slightly, dependin' on where yi look!)
