"IT WOZ JUST LIKE WATCHIN' ING'LAND THE NEET BEFORE!"
With the World Cup in full swing and nee Toon games because of this, aa got wor Saturday 'fix' at Tadcaster Albion, who were playin The Bad Blue Boys of Dunston in a leegue fixture!
A new groond and the 67th watchin Dunston for me! (Av aalso been to 20 odd of them with The Toon az well--- but NOT Tadcaster!)
We (Davy the Siver Fox and hiz better half, Barbara) went on the team bus and at just a tenner fare it woz a bargain!
Forst port o caall woz a boozer opposite the huge John Smith's brewery which woz within 'hocklin distance' of the entrance!
Unbeleeevableee they sold the rival Sam Smith's bitter----anothaa brewery which woz not far away!---The story gans that 2 brothers caalled John and Sam Smith ran a brewery in Tadcaster and fell oot!----They then formed their separate breweries---John Smith's and Samual Smith's---so now yi naa!
ANYWAY! There were aboot 7 or 8 Dunston fans in the bar when somebody's mobile telling bone went off!---He woz told in no uncertain torms by the manager that mobiles were banned and that he couldnt answer it!!!!----A policy in AALL Sam Smith bars apparently!
After shovellin 3 pints of 'Sam's finest' doon wor necks, it woz time to heed for the groond which woz actually though the John Smith's brewery! Weird!
"Bear we go! Beer we go! Beer we go!"
"Taddy"--- az the locals caall them, were rock bottom of the table with nee wins and when The Bad Blue Boys (playin in aall grey?) went one-nil up in the 15th minute through Carl Finnigan who heeded home--it looked az though a cricket score woz on the cards!----How wrang we were az Dunston laboured on and against the run of play the home side equalised through Hinsley in the 44th minute, who, unmarked, heeded the baall into the net, after a mix up in the Dunston defence from a corner!
"IZ THAT THE SMAALLEST COVERED STAND IN FUTBAALL?"
"SING IN THE TADWELD!"
The 2nd half woz terrible---just like Ing'land v USA the neet before, az Taddy went for the winner---and they came close several times before the final whistle!----It ended one's a piece and the oppotunity for Dunston to move higher up the table from their 7th position woz lost!----A new groond 'off the list' anyway!
PS: Congratulation to The Toon Lasses who played Barnsley Lasses at SJP yesterday and won 2-1 in the Womans FA Cup, in front of a record crowd of 28,565, beatin' the 22,000 who attended the forst Lasses game at SJP orlier this year!----Which reminds us---the MENS FA Cup 3rd roond draw takes place at Anfield tooneet at '7:00bells'----live on BBC2---NUFC are baall number 27
The Geordie Times will of course publish wor opponents az soon az we find oot who they are and wethaa it's home or away!
Az per usual "Watch this space!"
