Posted 'high noon bells' Sunday 2nd April 2023
Its been a canny weekend so far on Tyneside az wor rivals for a Champions Leegue place aall lost or drew yesterday! And then we foond oot Gatesheed had won on penalties in the FA Trophy semi final v Barnet to progress to thier 2nd ever Wembley final, where they will play Halifax.
The anly disappointment woz Dunston's game v Grimsby Boro woz postponed coz of a waaterlogged pitch!---The game we intended to gan tee!
Anyway! later today NUFC play wor most important Premyaa Leegue game of the season so far against Moan U! A win for us would propel us to 3rd place above Moan U and Sporz (who divvint play til tomorrow), but a defeat would mean that they would move 6 points aheed of us and we would stay in 5th position!
Despite the April Fools jokes yesterday that Eddie Howe had rabies and that Bruno had suffered a serious injury in trainin' on Friday, we hear that both are OK!
Joelinton retorns after sorvin a suspension, but Almiron and Gordon will miss oot az they are still carryin injuries!
Its certainly a busy week for us az we face 2 games in London in 4 days (West 'am on Wedinzday and Brentfaad on Saturday) so those 3 games in 6 days (includin today's) will define wor season!
A full Geordie Times match report will appear here sometime tommorow!
Az per usual "Watch this space!"
