*News that Joelinton will be oot for at least 6 weeks with a thigh injury he picked up in wor memorable 3-0 win ower the SMBs last Saturday, iz yet anothaa devastatin blow to hit us! Aalready oot are Wilson, Barnes, Willock, Murphy, Anderson, The Pope and Targett! Plus Tonali of course who iz suspended til August!----Thats NINE players oot aaltogethaa!
Man City meeenwhile are withoot Stones and Harlaand who are (thankfully) unfit!
It will be a very tough game against probably the best team in the world and to be porfectleee honest, I for one would be happy with a draw today!
We of course beat them orlier on this season 1-0 in the Leegue Cup when Alexander the Great (Isak) scored the anly goal of the game to inflict The Blue Moonies forst defeat of the season!---They will definatly be oot for revenge come the '5:30 bells' kick off (Live on TNT)
*A full Geordie Times match report will appear here sometime on Sunday----And then we have a 2 week 'rest' before playin Fulim in the FA Cup 4th roond on January 27th in west London!
