Posted '3:00pm🔔 bells' Friday 10th February 2023
*We make wor langest away trip of the season tomorrow at '5:30 bells' (live on SKY) when we face 'Steady Eddie's old team Bournemoooth at their place! (720 miles, roond trip!)
We are travellin by 'jam jar' coz the trains are manic ower the weekend with replacement busses etc and lang jorney times! (Plus we didnt naa if there would be any train strikes!)
Of course everybodys mind iz on Wembley in just ower 2 weeks time in the Leegue Cup final against Moan U--and in total contrast to that, there will be just 1,300 diehard Toon fans present in Bournemoooth's tiny Vitality Stadium groond, compared to near 33,000 at Wembley, plus an estimated 30,000 travellin with nee tickets of course!!!
Bruno iz still suspended but £40million signin' Anthony 'Flash' Gordon iz set to start, az iz record signin' Isak, who missed wor last game through a concussion heed injury!
NUFC are unbeaten in wor last 7 away games, while Bournemoooth havvint won since the restart after the World Cup break, scorin just ONE goal in the process and concedin' 11!---and are in the 2nd bottom relegation place!
Moan Us failure to beat Leeedz in midweek meeenz that IF we win, we gan back above them into 3rd place on goal difference!
A Geordie Times match (and booze!) report will appear here sometime on Munday, coz, like aa say, we are travellin back by 'jam jar' on Sunday and tryin to dee a match report on mee 'telling bone' in the back seat will be ny on impossible!
Az per usual---"Watch this space!---eventually!"
