"DEFEND!, DEFEND!----DEFEND!, DEFEND!, DEFEND!"
|STEVE BRUCE QUOTE: "CAN WE GET ONE OF THESE THROUGH THE SIDE ENTRANCE PLEEZE!"|
We gan into today's game in need of a victory to drag us oot of the bottom 3 in the table!
Moan U are on a bad run az well, havin made their worst start to a season in many a year!
So something must give az we attempt to win wor forst home game for SIX months! (But wor beleaguered heed coach haz othaa ideas!) >'Broken Nose Bruce' haz said that he iz to change hiz tactics from tryin' to attack the opposition to, "lets park the bus!" defendin', to try and get some borin' goalless draws on board! (no doubt!)
Aallso, in the space of a few days he haz said that, "The flack stops with me!" , to blamin' the players by sayin' that, "They can no longer hide behind me!"---Mixed messages indeed!
Wots the odds on a nil-nil draw today in the pourin' rain (It's p*ssin' doon az I speak!)
Bruce haz nevaa won a game az a manager/heed coach against Moan U in 21 attempts!
The attendance iz likely to be above 50k for the forst time this season, mainly due to NUFC puttin' tickets on general sale and offerin' local organisations and universities cheap tickets for their students in a desperate attemps to get the attendance above the 'magical'? 50,000 mark! (The heavy rain will stop quite a few from attendin' for sure) (They can aalways watch it on the telly of course!)
North east based Moan U fans are boond to be in the home sections az well, after the 'general sale' and this will cause massive problems shud wor visitors manage to score!
Irresponsibility and hypocrisy of the highest order and double standards by NUFC, who told fans NOT to sell home tickets to Liverpoool fans on the last day of last season, or else they would be banned for life!
The cheapest adult tickets for this game are £41 and £22 to £26 for children, yet students can sit in the same seats for £10!----Hardly fair--iz it?
A match (and estimated actual attendance) report will appear here tomorrow!
