Posted 'high noon bells' Saturday 12th March 2022
The NUFC mad-sad groundhoppers are off on wor travels again today----just a day after gettin' back from Sooothampton, az we are heedin south again for wor game v Chelski at Stamford Bridge! (The kick off time of '2:00 bells' makes it impossible to get to west London by train from The Toon, for the start!)
Of course we naa what haz happened in the last couple of day with their Russian owner sanctioned because of hiz friendship with Putin!
After tomorrow NEE away fans will be allowed into Stamford Bridge, which meeenz that we are the lucky ones who bought match tickets before the sanctions began! (The Toon will have 3,000 fans in the away corner)
Brentfaad, (who play 'just alang the road' from Chelsea) are sweatin' az to wethaa any of their fans can get in, az they play there after us!---A few tickets have been sold, but Brentfaad divvint naa for certain wethaa they will be allowed to attend?---whereaz Toon fans 'CAN'!
Anly the 28,000 Chelski season ticket holders will be allowed to attend future home games with NEE tickets for casual fans, or away tickets for their fans! (Thought they would have had more season ticket holders than that!)
It's a crazy situation, and it will be interestin to say the least how Toon fans react to their predicament! "WHERE'S YOUR RUSSIAN GONE!?"---iz a predicted chant for example!
Can we get at least a draw to keep wor unbeaten run gannin?, which now stretches to NINE games! (Wor last away loss woz before Xmas at Liverpoool---a 3-1 loss)
Anyway!----A Geordie Times match report will be attempted on mee mobile 'telling bone' on the train yem! (like on the way back from Sooothampton!)----So expect plenty of errrors and misstayks az the train rocks alang the tracks!
Failing that, the match report will appear sometime on Munday mornin'?
Az per usual "Watch this space!"
