"THE TALE OF THE LAST SUPPER!"
|UPSTAIRS IN 'THE 3 BULLS'----THE 'LAST SUPPERS'!|
It's been exactleee 106 days since Boris came on the telly to tell us that that day (March 20th) woz in fact 'last suppers day' for aall drinkers---and that the bars would be shut til forthaa notice!
|"DURIN' THE LOCKDOON"|
Aa woz in The Leazes End Club behind St. James' Park that day when he annoonced it, and aa nearly chocked on mee pint az aa took a large gulp of the golden liquid refreshment!
|"ME AND MEE LITTLE DOGGY CAALLED 'BREWDOG' (WOT ELSE?")|
The 'last suppers' took place in 'The 3 Bulls' on Porcy Street that fateful day and since then a'v been forced to drink Broon Ale from the local 'off licence' in various locations aroond Tyneside! (see photos!)
|"WENT TO VARIOUS LOCATIONS ON TYNESIDE"|
This afternooon a'm heedin for 'The 3 Bulls' again, where 'Tex' Taylor haz booked a table for us upstairs!---106 lang days since we were last there!
It will be very strange indeed to have 'table sorvice' instead of proppin up the bar like we used to dee! (which isn't allowed now!)
|"TO DRINK 'DOG' (NEWCASIL BROON ALE")|
And then on Sunday we are tryin to find a bar where we can watch wor home game v 'The Jellied Eels Mob' of West Ham---and wouldn't it be ironic if that boozer torned oot to be 'The Strawberry' in the shadows of 'The Gallowgate End' and 'The Jackie Milburn statue' (a former great centre forward who won 3 FA Cup winners medals with The Toon in the 1950s!)
|"IN PUB BEER GARDENS"|
It certainly would be weird to be watchin the match ower the road, instead of bein in mee normal seat in 'The Milburn Stand'!
|"AROOND THE CITY CENTRE"|
'The Geordie Times' will dee a 'pub crawl' report sometime tomorrow mornin'----that's assuming we can get into pubs that can anly have one thord of the capacity they had before the lockoot!
|"INCLUDIN' SOMEWHERE NEAR ST. JAMES' PARK"|
A full Geordie Times 'NUFC Mad-Sad Tellyhoppers' report on wor game on Sunday will appear here from a yet to be named Toon pub!? (The Strawberry?, The Bodega?, The 3 Bulls?, The Monkey Bar?)
Az per usual---watch this space for news of this!
|AND OOTSIDE WOR HOOSE!"|
