Updated Easter Egg Saturday '12:12pm bells'
|ST. JAMES' PARK FROM STANHOPE STREET|
"NEARLY THERE!---BUT NOT QUITE!"
With Cardiff's 2-0 win at Brightin through the week, it meeenz that NUFC are still not mathematically safe from relegation just yet!
A win for us tomorrow neet and a defeat for Cardiff at home to 'The Liverbirds' on Sunday will be enough, az the Welshmen will be 10 points behind us with anly 9 points to play for!
Both results are far from certain of course and with Sooothampton just below us in the table, it's anothaa six pointer for both clubs!
Wor home form iz shockin' of course and the defeat to Palace in wor last home game woz undeserved and unexpected!
However!---we picked worsels up for an excellent 1-0 win at Lestaa last Friday to propel us to 38 points and virtual safety---until 'The Taffy Noses' win at Brightin of course, putting them just 7 points behind us, in the last relegation place!
Uncertainty of Rafa's future continues with him tellin SKY SPORTS that hiz contract runs oot on June 30th and that nee progress haz been made!
"We are at the same point!", he told the tv cameras!
Unless wor great club iz sold, then we fear Rafa could well depart and that anothaa relegation battle will ensue next season---yet again!
(Provided we divvint gan doon this season of course!)
MEEENWHILE!---today (Good Friday) a'm heedin for 'The Heed' where they are playin a National Leegue game v Chesterfeeeld @ '3 bells' @ Gatesheed Stadium (discounted prices for NUFC season ticket holders)
A match report on that game will appear here at some point ower the weekend (see below!)
Wor home game v The Liverbirds haz now been belatedly conformed!
