For the 2nd competitive game in a row on a new groond, 'The NUFC mad-sad groundhoppers' will be missin, az will any Brentfaad fans, as we make wor debut at The Brentfaad Community Stadium in west London! (Newport woz missed az well!)
And so it is with a heavy heart that we must watch on from afar on wor tellys, laptops and mobile 'telling bones'! (in my case, mee mobile phone on an extended break in mee truck at Redditch in deepest Worcestershire!)
It haz been conformed that Jamaal Lascelles and Allan Saint-Maximin are the 2 NUFC players sufferin from 'long covid' (az though we hadnt worked it oot, coz they were missin from previous squads)
The Geordie Times wishes them a speedy recovery and hope that they will be back in the side soon!
The prize of victory iz a place in the semi finals of the Leegue Cup, which will be a one legged affair this season! (At the beginnin' of January)
The winners will be at Wembley at the end of February, where it will more than likely played behind closed doors in the 90,000 seat arena! (How sad!)
A full Geordie Times match report on the game will be published sometime on Wedinzday!---Az per usual---"Watch this space!"
