THE BLADE RUNNERS V THE TOON ** THORSDAY NEET!

Posted '1:19pm bells' Wedinzday 4th December 2019

Tomorrow neet we heed for Sheffield for a rare appearance at Bramall Lane, where NUFC are taking on Sheff U in a '7:30 bells start for live telly on Amazon Prime!
Lascelles, Ritchie and 'Carroll the Crock' are aall injured and will miss the game, while Yedlin woz pictured trainin yesterday and iz expected to be available!
We have sold wor allocation of 2,865 tickets for The Bramall Lane Lower Stand.

But wot performance will NUFC put in?--Hopefully one like wor MAGnificent 2-2 draw with Man City at SJP and NOT the sorry performance we put in at Villa Park!  

Its aboot 10 years since we last played a competitive game here, but in the distant past we were regular visitors to the oldest futbaall groond in the world (the world's oldest club, non leegue Sheffield FC played here before Sheff U)

The Geordie Times forst visit woz in 1972 where a huge fight took place in The Shorham End between The Leazes End Boot Boys and The Shorham Skinheads! (In the days before crowd segrigation) 

A 'classic' archive match report from that game played on April Fools Day more than 47 years ago, iz reproduced below!
