Posted 'high noon bells' Friday 4th March 2022
Forst of aall, can we say that we feel for the people of Ukraine, who have been forced to flee their country by Russian aggression! (Ower a million so far!)
NUFC have played 3 times in Ukraine in European competitions, twice in Kiev and once in Karkiv!
It's hard to believe that both those places that we have been tee, to watch The Toon, have been bombarded and reduced to rubble and wor hearts gan oot to aall Ukrainians!
A 'Geordie Times' match report on forst visits to both Dynamo Kiev (ground 158) and Karkiv (ground 297) can be foond in the right hand column under 'Archive grounds match report list'
Tomorrow at SJP we face a Brightin team that are on a bad run and so hopefully we can pick up the 3 points to steer us clear of the relegation zone!----We are still anly 4 points above Bornley in 3rd bottom place, but they lost in midweek against Lestaa and have now played aall their games in hand that they had ower us!
In the current 'form table' NUFC are 2nd anly to Liverpoool ower the last 6 games, while Brightin lie in 16th place!
*Amazingly, this will be wor 10th meetin' with Brightin in the top flight and we have yet to beat them!!! (5 draws, 4 defeats!) So its aboot time we did!!!
Callum Wilson and Kieran Trippier are both still 'crocked', but Saint Maximin will hopefully be in the startin line up at the '3:00 bells' kick off time!
A full Geordie Times match report will appear here sometime on Sunday---SO!---az per usual---"Watch this space!"
PS: We say 'Ne where Near' Brightin, coz their groond iz 'nee where near Brightin', which iz 6 miles distant!
