Many Toon fans are expecting us to get slaughtered tooneet at 'The Theatre of Muppets'!
However, Moan U's home record iz nowhere near az good az their away record and even relegation certainties Sheff U won there the othaa week! (They have drawn or lost 7 times from 12 home games!)
We fully expect a defensive rear guard to try and repel their attack, but if they do score, then Bruce doesn't have a 'plan B' to fight back!
Between them this season in leegue games, wor 3 remaining fit strikers have scored a paltry 3 goals between them, so any fight back would be a futile affair! (It seems!?)
We shall soon find oot and 'The Geordie Times' will bring yoo live updates of any goals and incidents az the game progresses on wor laptop!

It's just a pity that the game didn't end after 60 minutes, as Bruce said we matched them up until this point!
