Boxing Day . . . Submitted on 19/12/2005 by Smike
Arrangements are now sorted for Liverpool on Boxing Day.

We will be leaving The Sporties at 8am, apologies go to the Sherburn Surf Stars as we can not pick up at The Keys on this occasion (I'm sure that some canny Carrvillian will come across and pick you up). There is a 'stop off' booked for food and drinks on the way. Unfortunately, as usual there'll be no alcohol allowed on the coach.

Looks like another good turn out, however as I've had to book a different bus company we've got a larger coach and there's possibly a couple of spare seats.

Don't be late........8am.

By the way, who's got the flag?

 MATCH REPORT . . . West Ham United 2-4 Newcastle United Submitted on 18/12/2005 by Stevie
Ok, I’m not the most frequent of visitors to Newcastle matches and may be a bit naive but I presumed when Dirk asked me to pick up my ticket in the “Boleyn” that there may be a few of the toon army in there.

 MATCH REPORT . . . Newcastle United 1-0 Arsenal Submitted on 14/12/2005 by John Elliott
Saturday turned out to be a day of firsts. First, Newcastle decided to produce their best performance of the season to date (in the second half anyway) and Nobby scored his first goal since his return.

Toy Town Tribulations! Submitted on 08/12/2005 by Enid Blyton
On a very cold day in Toy Town, Mr Plod was very happy to be assigned the role of driving the brand new Astra diesel car.

‘Now then, to drive £10,000 worth of car will be a privilege’, he said. ‘After all, the car is barely a month old and only has 1500 miles on the clock’.

The Police Station then took a call and Mr. Plod rushed to The Hilltop Pub.

‘Now then, I wonder if Dinah Doll and Tessi Bear have had too much to drink again’ he pondered as he safely parked the new police car in the car park.
"Now then! What's going on here?’ he asked sternly, only to find that there was no disturbance at all.

Unfortunately, in his haste to get back to the station for a cup of tea and a packet of Monster Munch, he neglected to see the brick wall in the car park.

‘Oh dear’ said Mr Plod, ‘I’ve really done it now’.

Mr. Plod, red faced, then called a red and yellow taxi to take him back to the station.

‘Now then, it’s back on the beat for you Mr. Plod’ said the Sarg.

The brand new car will be in Mr. Sparks’ garage for at least a month.
 MATCH REPORT . . . Newcastle United 1-1 Aston Villa Submitted on 07/12/2005 by Sean
Being given this match to report following the JJB debacle made me think xmas had come early, after all the players reputations had been scrutinised, criticised and vilified which meant, to a man they had something to prove. Then we come to our gloriously ‘unlucky’ manager, having been usurped tactically by one of the youngest and least experienced managers in the premier league and having his ‘judge me when all our players are fit’ stock excuse embarrassingly exposed by defeat to a reserve team, ‘the disciplinarian, no nonsense man motivator’ would surely have fired up our boys to bury the ghosts of the carling cup?

Hammers Ticket? Submitted on 06/12/2005 by Stevie
Stevie the webmaster (I use that term loosely) requires a ticket for West Ham away. Anybody got one?
 MATCH REPORT . . . Wigan Athletic 1-0 Newcastle United Submitted on 05/12/2005 by Wilf
Onto Wednesday and a league cup tie against Wigan who were to rest nine players and play a midfielder up front, in anticipation of a season which will surely now become little more than a very quick descent down the Premier League. Souness elected to play his strongest side, which included his multi - million pound signings, Luque, Emre, Parker and Boumsong. Unfortunately most of the team thought that all they had to do was turn up.

 MATCH REPORT . . . Everton 1-0 Newcastle United Submitted on 05/12/2005 by Wilf
Two trips down the M6 in the space of 4 days, the first stop being a trip to Everton for an early kick – off the morning after the party of the year. First stop was the usual meeting point of Micks house to join the twins, Jonny and friends to make up our convoy. We also picked up Dirk who was surprisingly a lot less hung over than most of us. Next stop was Scotch Corner, as John who was en route to West Brom for work had decided he would rather meet us there than Coxhoe. The rest of the trip to seemed to pass quickly thanks to long periods of sleep.

The McGuinness Challenge – The Equaliser! Submitted on 01/12/2005 by ?
Some people are still recovering from the arctic conditions in The Angel beer garden the other Friday night – Greavsie in particular. Although young Wilf was well aware of the rules he elected to put his coat on at the first opportunity, where as Kieron on the other hand survived the duration of the whole evening coatless.

One point to Kieron.
Wilf 4 v 4 Kieron
