THE COMPLETE AND UTTER IRONY OF IT AALL, AZ THE PL GET REVENGE ON TOON FANS!

Posted 'high noon bells' Munday 31st August 2020

GALLOWGATE!

NUFCs first 3 games of the new season will NOT be televised!

Whereas the 2 Manc clubs, The Liverbirds, The Arse and Chelski's first 3 games are AALL live!

Iz this the Premyaa Leegue's revenge and punishment on Toon fans who sent them hate mail (and Masters in particular) and gave them negative vibes durin the takeower fiasco!



The irony of it aall is that this will FORCE Toon fans to watch it illegally on pirates boxes---one of the very reasons to try and block the takeower deal!

And are there just 5 clubs who matter in the top flight?---and to hell with the othaa 15?



I for one will NOT watch any of the legal games involving the 5 teams mentioned, if I cant watch my own team legally!

Of course I will find oot where to watch it on someone's pirate box---not wot I want to dee, but will be forced into, alang with thoosands of othaa Toon fans, desperate to see us play!

The Premyaa Leegue iz a disgrace and Masters in particular should be sacked forthwith!-- and then frogmarched to Gallowgate, put into a pillory and have rotten eggs, chicken legs and black cats hoyed at him! (amongst othaa things!)


"Can I hoy the forst egg?--- pleeeze!"

SILENCE IZ GOLDEN!

Posted 'high noon bells' Sunday 30th August 2020


We have never met Amanda Staveley, just like 99.9% of Toon fans, but we trust hor 100%
It is now exactly one month to the day since we hord that the Saudis were 'pulling the plug' to takeower NUFC

We are sure that if the takeower by the PIF group woz 'dead in the waataa', then she would tell us, and not stay silent, if that woz the case!

We feel that sommik IZ gannin on quietly behind the scenes and hopefully we will hear some good news in the next few weeks!

We live hope that the deafenin silence IZ golden! πŸ™   πŸ™   πŸ™   πŸ™   





THE TOON 2 BARNSLEEE 1 *** FRIENDLY

 Posted '9:48am bells' Sunday 30th August 2020

NEE ENTRY TO TOON FANS!

The Toon took on Barnsleee yesterday afternooon at Darsley Park, Benton and won 2-1 with goals from Andy Carroll and Jacob Murphy!

Carroll's strike woz a fine effort in the 27th minute and Murphy scored from the penalty spot in the 77th minute after he woz fouled in the box! (So we are told, az this game of course woz behind closed doors!)

Barnsleee had equalised in the 53rd minute but couldn't prevent the winner from the spot!

Sorry we dont have any pix from the game az we wornt there!




Next up iz The Smog Monsters at their trainin groond in Hurworth near Darlo next Tuesday! (Behind closed doors of course!)

THE BAD BLUE BOYS 1 THE SPARTAN ARMY 2 *** FRIENDLY FIXTURE

 Posted 'high noon bells' Saturday 29th August 2020



For the forst time this season, fans were allowed into Dunston's groond where they took on Blyth Spartans in a friendly match!

Anly 200 fans were allowed in on a forst come forst sorved basis and so aa got there and hour and a half before kick off to make sure that aa didnt get locked oot!

On arrival a Dunston committee man pointed a gun at mee foreheed!

"OK! OK!", I said, az aa held mee hands above mee heed!---"I'll buy a season ticket, yoo dont have to threaten me!"


LUCKY 7? A'V AALSO GOT A 10 YEAR 
NUFC SEASON TICKET!---PITY AA CANNIT GET IN!

"It's to check your temperature, Fink!" he replied az 'the gun' gave a readin of 32!---It must have been OK, coz he let me in!




Anothaa advantage of gettin' there orly woz that aa had more time for a pre match 'gargel' in the Dunston clubhoose!

                                        A SOCIALLY DISTANCED PINT OF BITTER!

The game kick off at '7:45 bells' and the forst sign of autumn az there were loads of leaves on the pitch from the huge trees that surroond the groond!

"IZ THAT SNOW ON THE PITCH?"



From wot aa could see, 'The Spartan Army' numbered but a dozen or so die-hards who had made the jorney south---a low number of followers for them, but hardly suprizin' az there woz nee guarantee that they would get in! (Could have been more, but aa didnt see (or hear) any)



There looked az though there woz a full hoose of 200 aaltogether, and aa have nee idea if anybody got torned away under the strict 'bat oot of hell' covid restrictions?

Spartans got off to the better start az they attacked 'The Tea Hut End' and were one-nil up after 17 minutes by Panos, with a simple tap in at the near post from where aa woz standin! And there woz muted cheerin' and applause from The Spartan Army!



They doubled their lead in the 27th minute through  McKeowen after a misstayk by the 'Bad Blue Boys' goalie, Connell!

It woz still 2-0 at the break!

Dunston did pull one back on the hour mark after Spartan's player boss Michael Nelson diverted Jack Elliott's cross into hiz own net to half the deficit!<(We naa aall the big words!)



'The Bad Blue Boys' tried in vain to find an equaliser, az 'The Spartans of Blyth' recorded their forst victory of the pre season!

Full time 2-1 to 'The Spartans'

Attendance: 200? 

Footnote: We say 'The Bad Blue Boys' coz on a trip to Croatia in The Champions Leegue a canny few years ago, NUFC played Dinamo Zagreb. A handful of us ended up in a notorious Zagreb bar where their nutters gan!  They were amazed to see us calmly drinkin pints of the local brew!  Apparently NEE away fans dare venture here coz of their reputation!

Thankfully they were OK with us and seemed pleezed to see us!

They are caalled 'The Bad Blue Boys' and in Croatia they are the equivalent of Millwaall's 'F Troop' hooligans!

                                 "FIRE BRIGADE AT THE READY!"

We decided that az Dunston play in aall blue, that we would give them the same nickname!---and it's stuck!

PS: This afternooon at '1:00 bells' 'The Toon' play Barnsleee at Darsley Park, Benton, but yet again it's behind closed doors!

PET SHOP BOYS BID FOR TOON! *** GEORDIE TIMES EXCLUUUSIVE!

 Posted '2:45pm bells' at Woodall services truckpark northbound, M1, Munday 24th August 2020


News reaches us that a £300 million bid for NUFC haz been lodged by the BN Group from Singapore who are said to be the fastest growin' conglomerate in the world!(whatever that meenz?)

They share premises with a PET SHOP, which iz on the top floor of a 4 story buildin' in the city state!

I'm not sayin that theres a 'rabbit' off' somewhere,(sic!) but if yoo share a buildin with a bloody pet shop, how much money have yoo reely got and how the hell will yoo get Ronaldo to sign for NUFC az you've promised???

BN Group speaking to Ronaldo:

"We're not in the Champions League, we're not even in the Europa League, but we did finish 13th in the Premier League and yoo could partner Joelinton in attack, who scored 2 goals in 38 League games last season!"

Geordie Times comment: "They are not even 'chancers', they're not THAT good!"

And as for that American gadgie!???

WIDEOPEN 9 HEDDON UNITED 0 *** FRIENDLY FIXTURE

 Posted '5:25pm bells' Saturday 22nd August 2020

(Updated Sunday)


"HADRIAN WILL NOT BE IMPRESSED!"


Emperor Hadrian
 

This woz mee forst live game since March (Toon away at Soothampton on the 6th and then Dunston away at Widnes on the 13th)

I travelled up to the northern outskirts of the Toon in 'Blondie Alan the Morris Dancer's 'jam jar'

The visitors from Heddon on the Wall (Hadrians wall) were totally outplayed in this game az WideOpen (yes! There is such a place!) dominated from start to finish!

To put it bluntly the Heddon defence woz 'wide open' as the appropriately named home side laid siege to the visitors goal. The Emperor Hadrian would not be impressed if he woz watchin from the clouds above!


WideOpen is to the north of Gosforth Park racecourse and their groond iz caalled Lockey Park and they play in the Northern Alliance 2nd division!   Whereaz Heddon United play in the Hexham & District Sunday Leegue

The groond consisted of a pitch with a metal fence aroond it, open to the elements with nee stands! (Luckily it wasnt rainin'!)


The goal glut woz az follows (deep breath!)

Goal 1: 15th minute: Shot across the box!

Goal 2: Goalie blunder to let WideOpen forward in for simple tap in in 20th minute

Goal 3: Another simple tap in from close range just 2 mins later

Goal 4: A great strike which gave the Heddon goalie nee chance! (See photo)


                                                                       The 4th goal!

Wide Open didnt have any
numbers on their blue
shirts, so we didn't have a
clue who scored their 
9 goals!  
(Nee team sheets eethaa, of course!)


HT 4-0 to WideOpen

Goal 5: A wide open goal for WideOpen after anothaa defensive blunder from the Heddon defence, just 2 mins after the restart!

Goal 6: Penalty, which woz hit doon the centre az the goalie dived to his right on the hour mark!


   Goal 6 from the penalty spot!



Goal 7: Another tap in from close range!


"BEWARE OF LOW FLYIN' PLANES!"

Just before the 7th goal the linesman, who woz a Heddon substitute, flagged for offside against WideOpen

The 'away' linesman in the orange Heddon strip!
(The linesman on the far side wore a blue Wide Open strip!)


It wasn't offside and the ref, who we naa caalled Barry said, "Iz there a plane comin' in?" (To nearby Newcasil Airport--and there WOZ!)


Goal 8: A free kick in the 70th minute from the edge of the box, woz fumbled by the Heddon goalie and the baall trickled into the net (NOT a good day for him!)

Goal 9: Bang on full time. A Shot across the box ended up in the far corner of the net with the Heddon goalie 'headin' in the wrang direction! (sic!)


'Official' attendance: (Accordin to 'Blondie Alan the Morris Dancer') 36, plus 2 smaall doggies!

Amazingleee, this woz Blondie's 14th game of the season and 2nd today!

*PS: Had a look at WideOpen's twitter feed on Sunday mornin' and the goals were scored by: Beattie (hat-trick), Whittaker (hat-trick),  Desmond (2) and Norvell (1), but in which order, iz anybodys guess???

TRYERS, BUYERS AND LIARS!

Posted 'high noon bells' Friday 21st August 2020

"OWER TO YOO,  AMANDA!"

The NUST (Newcasil United Supportaaz Trust) put questions to the Premyaa Leegue's cheef executive Richard 'Disaster' Masters yesterday aboot the takeower fiasco!

"The door is still open!" said Masters, when asked if the deal had been aborted!

"There is NO truth that othaa Premyaa Leegue 'big six' clubs put objections in, or influenced the owners and directors test!"
he added: We find that VERY HARD to believe?

The Buyin' party said that there were nee 'red flags' raised in the forst 9 weeks of the takeower!
Masters replied "That this was NOT true and the 'test' has no time limit!"

Put it this way, eethaa Masters iz tellin 'porkies', OR Amanda Staveley IZ!??

With 110,000 Toon fans signin' the 'e mail' for transparacy from the Leegue and 7,000 sendin 'e mails' to their MPs, of which ower 100 of them backed or wrote letters to Masters and Co., we reely DEE need Amanda and the PIF to say sommik!? (Az well az wor reluctant owner, 'The Fat Controller'!) (FAT chance of that!)

Amanda asked us to lobby the Premyaa Leegue, and we DID!
Amanda asked us to start a petition in favour of the takeower
and we DID!
Amanda asked us to send letters to wor local MPs and we DID!

We've done wor bit Amanda---we desperately need a reply!

Iz the deal still alive?---or iz it dead?
We the lang sufferin NUFC fans need to naa the answer!

ARE YOO LISTENIN', AMANDA!

A Wolves away game follows, but we fear that NEE away fans will be allowed for the foreseeable future!

NUFC MAD-SAD GROUNDHOPPERS NEAR MISS!

Posted '7:09pm bells' Tuesday 18th August 2020


The draw for the EFL Trophy northern section woz made this afternooon and NUFC U21s will face the first teams of Bolton, Crewe and Shrewsbury, aall away from home!


The NUFC mad-sad groundhoppers have been to aall 3 groonds, which is just as well as they are likely to be played behind closed doors!


We could have got Salford away behind closed doors,  a groond where have never seen the Toon play!  It woz a 'near miss'!

This would have been a disaster for aall of us who groundhop with the Toon and the sooner they let fans into games the better!

Dates and times of the above games to be conformed (not that we'll be able to gan, like!)

BNG TO SIGN RONALDO!

 Posted '9:22pm bells' Munday 17th August 2020

The BNG consortium say that they are serious bidders for NUFC and have said that they want to sign RONALDO!

Beleeeve that and yoo'll beleeeve that the Moon is made of cheese!


        AND HERE'S THE PROOF!

EFL TROPHY DRAW TOMORROW!

 Posted '8:08pm bells' Munday 17th August 2020


Tomorrow afternooon at '1:30 bells' the group draw for the EFL Trophy will be made on Talksport for the Premyaa Leegue sides who have entered it.

The northern groups have aalready been drawn for the lower leegue minnows (like the smb!)

There are 8 groups in the northern section, with 3 lower leegue clubs in each group, plus an 'invited' club from the Premyaa!

We can't be in group A coz the mackems are in that one and we will be kept apart til the knockoot stage!

Fleetwood are in that group and it's a huge sigh of relief that we wont play them, coz it might still be behind closed doors and 'The NUFC mad-sad groundhoppers' have never been there before and would miss a new groond, if it woz possible to draw them away!


However!  The anly othaa team in the northern section of the competition where we have never been tee, where we could gan, is Salford, who are in group B

If we draw them away, then there iz a good chance that we wouldn't get in, which would ruin the NUFC groundhoppers new grounds records, (gannin back 41 years in my case!)(Since I missed an NUFC game on a new groond!)


Of course fans might be able to gan to games in the near future, but with the 'bat out of hell' virus still active, this could aall change!


We will let yoo naa just which teams we will be facing as soon az we find oot!

Az per usual "Watch this space!"

NUFCs wanaaway owner The Fat Controller wants the PIF group to caall the Premyaa Leegue's bluff and gan to arbitration  to finally get the deal ower the line!


Quite simply he wants the PIF to tell them exactly who will be runnin the club to force an end to the saga!

He is sympathetic with their situation and believes that they are the ANLY serious contenders to buy us! (At the moment!)


Arbitration, we are told, is their anly option and could take 1 YEAR!   

But will they be prepared to wait that lang, we ask worsels!???


Watch this space for forthaa developments!

PL STIR UP A HORNETS NEST!

 Posted 'high noon bells' Saturday 15th August 2020




The letter from The Premyaa Leegues cheef executive Richard 'Disaster' Masters yesterday (see article below) has certainly stirred up a Hornets nest with the PIF and The Fat Controller!

Below are the replies to his letter!







        • Conclusion: It seems that The Premyaa Leegue's stance woz to block the deal, no matter what!
        • Have they succeded?   Well it's now up to the PIF consortium to make the next move, but the deal seems ever more unlikely az the weeks pass (20 weeks so far!)
