NO ROOM AT THE INN!
Despite repeated attempts to book into a multitude of Toon boozers with tellys in their beer gardens to watch the match, we have been unsuccessful and so we must watch the match on a dodgy channel on wor laptop at Geordie Times HQ once again!
This iz yet anothaa 'must not lose game', with Fulim not playin til tomorrow v The Arse and West Brom not playin at aall this weekend!
And so this iz a great chance to pull well clear of them IF we can somehow win against high flying West Ham at SJP!
The man we fear for the east Londoners iz Jesse Lingard, who haz scored 8 goals in hiz last 9 games! (He's on loan from Moan U)
With Saint Maximin and Callum Wilson now fully fit, we expect them to be in the starting line up which will be reproduced below in a few minutes time!
But what formation will Brucey play, we ask worsels? If we gan for a draw and a point we fear it will backfire badly, and so (hopefully) we will gan aall oot for the 3 points to drag us 9 points clear of Fulim and 11 points clear of 'Fat Sam the Ugly Man's, West Brom!
