IF WE GET THERE, MOSS ROSE WILL BE GROOND
NUMBER 80 VISITED, OOT OF THE 90 LEEGUE GROONDS
"THE BIG MACC!"
Tomorrow evenin' at '7:45 bells' wor U21s take on Macclesfeeeld Toon's forst team in the EFL Trophy (group stage) at Moss Rose!
This will be the 2nd new Leegue groond for 'The NUFC mad-sad groundhoppers in 9 days, followin' on from wor forst team game at Tottenham Hotspur Stadium in "norf Landan!" a week gone Sunday
3 of us are travellin' doon in Blondie Alan's car and we shud arrive there in good time for a few pre match 'gargels' in a hostelry somewhere near the groond (Or indeed in Macclesfeeeld's club hoose (IF they have one?)
We will be housed in the ridiculously named 'Big Brand Ideas Stand'!😳
Because of Bury's very sad demise and Coventry's groond sharin at Bormingham, there are now anly 90 current Leegue groonds---and this will be 'The Mad-sad groundhopper's 80th current Leegue groond watchin' NUFCs forst team and resorves, with 10 still to dee---aall of them in Leegues 1 or 2! (6 in Leegue 1 and 4 in Leegue 2)
NUFC resorves have played here a few years ago (v Stoke resorves), but the forst team were playin' at Cristil Pallis on the same day, so we couldn't be in 2 places at the same time and 'missed it' because of this!)
A full 'Geordie Times' match report (and pix) will appear here on Wedinzday---sometime!
