"AND NOW THE END IZ NEAR!"
What a Saturday!---Aaall the teams we wanted to succeed did (apart from 1) az results from the SOS and Wembley came through at '5:30 bells' last neet! Aalso, Brentfaad won, which meenz they gan into the Championship play off final to try for a place in the top flight! (IF they win it will be a new groond for The NUFC mad-sad groundhoppers to gan tee next season!) (Hopefully!)
Today, we torn wor attention to Craven Cottage in west London where NUFC bring doon the curtain at relegated Fulim in a dead rubber game!
3 months ago this woz supposed to be the game where ex mackem player Maja woz gannin to send us doon to The Championship az the SMBs won automatic promotion from Leegue 1!
Of course yesterday's 3-2 aggregate loss consigned the mackems to a FOURTH consecutive season in the thord tier of Inglish futbaall, while NUFC secured safety to the top flight a month ago!
They can now look forward to trips to Cheltenham and possibly Newport Coonty, Morecambe or Forest Green Rovers and of course they must 'enjoy Burton' for the 4th succesive season!
At Wembley yesterday, that non leegue team we love to hate begginin with the letter 'H' lost 3-1 to Hornchurch in The FA Trophy final!---A hat-trick of success for us, for sure!😆
The anly 'blip' woz Binfield FCs, who lost the FA Vase to Warrington az wor mate from Bracknell near Reading 'Colonel Gadaffi' used to play for them in the 1960s, which shows just how old he iz!---WE wanted them to win for hiz sake, but it wasnt to be!
ANYWAY!--back to this afternooon at '4 bells' where we will watch the game in Rosie's Bar which iz within hocklin distance of SJP!
A win will propel us up to az high az 13th if other results gan wor way, or az low az 17th if they divvint--and The Toon lose!
This will bring an end to wot haz been a horrendous season of havin to watch Toon games on Laptops, pub screens and mobile phones!(and even listen on truck 📻s!)
Some of the games have been truly aaful and a change of owner and 🦖 management are wor anly hope of avoidin' relegation battles season after season after season!---We live in hope!🙏
A full Geordie Times match report will appear here az per usual by 'high noon bells' tomorrow!---"Watch this space!"
