"WOOD HEEDS FOR THE FOREST!"
News that striker Chris Wood iz off to Forest reaches us----'Steady Eddie' told him that hiz game time at The Toon would be limited with both Isak and Wilson fit again---and that he'd be better off gannin to Forest, despite hiz reluctency to leave us!
Chris did a great job last season in helpin us to stay up, with vital goals at the reet time!---He woz aalways a 'stop gap' signin' and we aall wish him well in hiz new venture!--He wont be forgotten! "Cheers Chris!"
The results ower the last 2 days have certainly gone wor way, az Moan U conceded a last gasp goal at The Palliss on Wedinzday to deny them 3 points in the 1-1 draw---and move just one point above us (instead of 3!) ----and then last neet at Man City, Sporz hoyed away a 2 goal lead at half time to lose 4-2 in dramatic fashion to keep them 5 points behind us in 5th place, with a game more played!
This iz a great opportunity to open up an 8 point gap on them and owertake Moan U to move back into 3rd position in The Premyaa Leegue table!----It won't be easy of course (Az Moan U foond oot!), but the way we are playin', its quite possible to take the 3 precious points in wor quest for Champions Leegue futbaall next season!
'The Geordie Times' will of course bring yoo a full match (and booze!) report az we travel back from London on the train on Sunday mornin' Az per usual "Watch This space!"
