Posted from '1:01pm bells' onwards, Friday 19th August 2022
NUFC face wor biggest test of the season so far, when we take on current Premyaa Leegue champions Man City at SJP at '4:30 bells' on Sunday
It wont be easy az wor visitors are by far and away the best team in the leegue (and probably Europe!) and a draw iz the best outcome we can hope for! (me 'finks'?) Both us and City are the anly teams in the top flight not to concede a goal----yet!
We shall soon find oot of course, but if 'The Blue Moons' are on top form then there will anly be one winner---and it wont be 'us'! (We are still in the transition stage and it will be a while yet, til we can compete with them!)
Aall tickets were sold oot weeks ago and indeed wor next 5 games home and away are aall taken! (Man C(H), Tranmere(A), Wolves (A), Livaapool(A) and Palace(H). Tickets are now on sale for West Ham away and Bournemoooth at home and will both be sold oot soon, nee doubt!
NUFC have anly been beaten at home in the Prem once since Man City beat us in December last year! That's 11 games ago
(8 wins, 2 draws, 1 loss!)
Az we have a blank Saturday, a'm off to Bridlington for a bit of non leegue groundhoppin' tomorrow to see 'The Bad Blue Boys of Dunston' in an FA Cup qualifyin' roond tie! (Match report of sorts on that---eventually!)
Update Saturday mornin
'The Bad Blue Boys' won 3-0!
Meeenwhile, team news on the NUFC game will appear here an hour before kick off on Sunday, when the line ups are annoonced!
Az per usual---"Watch this space!" 🢃
