A VIEW TO DIE FOR!
AND THE GALLOWGATE END
FROM SOHO BAR
We return to FA Cup action after wor 4-2 win at Bleakburn the othaa week in the thord roond replay, when we play Wotfaad at SJP tomorrow at '3 bells'!
We fully expect anothaa weakened FA Cup X1 team to torn oot, with a game against the current champions Man City next Tuesday on the horizon!
Wotfaad, who we beat at home in a leegue game orlier this season (1 of anly 3 home wins!) will probably field a full strength team, az they are safe from relegation and too far away from a European places!
ie: They may az well 'gan for it' and will be favourites to progress to the 5th roond----a roond we have never reached under 'The Fat Controller's leadership! (The last time we reached the 5th roond woz 13 years ago in 2006!)
Premyaa Leegue survival iz more important and with anly SIX days of the transfor window left, the silence iz (once again!) deafenin' regardin' any PERMANENT new signings to add to wor weak squad!
Lets face it!--'we' won't win the FA Cup anyway, will we?
Although it would be a very nice distraction from the rigours of the leegue to reach the fifth roond after 13 years of abject failure in the competition!
'The Elton John Mob' have been allocated 6,000 tickets for the top deck of The Leazes End---however!--we anly expect a thoosand or so to travel up from Hertfordshire!
We 'fink' a crowd approachin' 40,000 will be in attendance, including thoosands of screamin' kids, who will get in for 'a fiver'!
A full Geordie Times match report will appear here az per usual on Sunday, alang with any transfor news!
A BYGONE ERA---THE LAST TIME NUFC WON THE CUP WOZ IN THE 1950's
WHEN YOO COULD BY A PINT OF BEER FOR '1s/3p' (6 pence!)
