Wigan Away Submitted on 30/09/2005 by Smike
The bus is filling up quickly for the trip to Wigan on Sat 15th Oct. We'll be leaving at about 8am. There'll be a stop off on the way down but we'll be coming straight back after the game. As usual there'll be no booze allowed on the coach. If you haven't already confirmed your place you need to do so sharpish. Contact me as soon as poss.

Carl Boon has been in touch to let us know that the Mountain Men will be running mini buses and coaches to away games this season. Picking up in Bishop Auckland and Newton Aycliffe as necessary, they too are going to Wigan.

There’s space on a minibus for the Chelsea trip on 19 November, cost is £24 each. Depending on numbers, they might run a coach.

They’ve sorted a coach for Everton on Sunday 27 November. The Goodison trip will cost £17.

Contact Carl on 07706 850726.

As you are probably aware a massive earthquake measuring 5.8 on the Richter scale struck Durham in the early hours of this morning. At the epicentre in Coxhoe, victims were seen roaming around aimlessly muttering, 'Where`s me chickens and hens?'. The earthquake decimated the entire area causing £30 worth of damage. Several priceless collections of banjo`s and violins were damaged beyond repair.

Three historic areas of burnt out cars, some over seven years old were disturbed. Many of the locals were awoken before their Giros arrived. The Durham Advertiser reported that hundreds of locals were confused, bewildered and still trying to come to terms with the loss of Pearn Antiques.

One resident Miss Sharon Smith, a 15 year old mother of six said, 'It was a shock to my little daughter Chardonnay Mercedes. She came into my room and put me and Winston off our stroke but my youngest two boys, Tyler Morgan and Brooklyn Romeo Rainbow luckily slept through it all. I was still shaking whilst watching Trisha the next day'.

Apparently looting, mugging and car crime did carry on as normal. The Red Cross has so far managed to ship 4000 crates of Ace Larger into the area to help the stricken locals. Rescue workers are still searching through the rubble and have recovered large amounts of belongings including Benefit Books and Jewellery by Elizabeth Duke at Argos.

How Can You Help?

This appeal is to raise money, food and clothes parcels for those caught up in the disaster. Clothing is urgently needed and amongst the most sort after items are;
  • Fila or Burberry Baseball caps
  • Kappa Tracksuit Tops (his and hers)
  • Adidas Trackie Bottoms, ¾ length
  • White socks
  • Rockport boots
  • And anything else from The Donnay shop
Food parcels must take into consideration local tastes and should include Chicken, Chicken Noodles, Baked Beanz (with Chicken), Super Chicken Noodles, Chicken Rolls and Greggs pasties (Chicken) for the babies.

Every little helps. Remember:
  • 22p buys a biro to help fill in a compensation form
  • £2 buys chicken nuggets and Blue Panda Pop for a family of 9
  • £5 buys 20 B&H and a box of Swan Vestas to calm the nerves of a grieving ten year old
Please don't sent tents for shelter as the sight of posh accommodation is unfair on the residents of Quarrington Hill and Kelhoe.

 MATCH REPORT . . . Newcastle United 1-0 Manchester City Submitted on 24/09/2005 by Trapper
The Carling cup has thrown up a few surprises(!) this week and as I wandered around Durham on Thursday lunchtime chuckling at the sad demise of Pompey, Spurs and Man City (why have Spurs not been given the slaughter treatment from the media that other “big” clubs would have endured, OK I’ve answered my own question),(and hopefully we wont find out what treatment we’d get now we’ve drawn them in the next round) when I bumped into quiet lad, now the sight of him in a shirt and tie is a big enough shock to the system.

Bigmouth 0 v 3 Big Club
Blackburn 2pm on a Sunday. Impossible to get there from London in time for kick off using public transport. So, I had to go up to Manchester on Saturday afternoon and stay with Stevie. Given the KO times of Premiership games nowadays it is necessary to have mates all over the country where one can stay. I decided to take the coach up to Manchester for a change and could not believe when I saw on the Internet that the ticket from London to Manchester is only £ 1.-. Great that leaves me with quite a bit of drinking money for this weekend. The coach journey actually was not bad and it was on time what you usually cannot say for the trains. At 6.30pm I got into Manchester . . . more
Should I Stay Or Should I Go? Submitted on 20/09/2005 by Sean
The rain was chucking it down, so when my season ticket dropped through the door, I thought it would brighten my outlook for the season ahead if not the weather. It didn't, I sat watching Sky Sports News, reflecting on the players who'd left and the distinct lack of potential quality signings. I re-assured myself that everything would be ok by the start of the season.

Canny holiday?

Aye, really good, Bournemouth for a week, glorious weather. Excellent in fact.

Long drive down though?

Not a problem ….. I didn't drive though.

Eh? There and back - you didn't drive?

That's right, I didn't drive anywhere all week. Andrea did it all

I thought she's pregnant?

That's right - she is pregnant - that's why she had to drive.

Come again?
Well she couldn't drink cos she's pregnant. So, as I was on the drink, she had to drive. Simple as that.

Bottle of Becks?

Yes please.
 MATCH REPORT . . . Newcastle United 1-1 Fulham Submitted on 11/09/2005 by Beat
"Souness is a fcuking idiot." So said Quite Lad several times last season when our hard-man manager introduced us to some terrible tactics, stupid signings and shocking man-management.

Others - me included - thought differently. Souness had a difficult job to sort out our idiots, and that he should be given time. But Quiet Lad disagreed. He'd formed this opinion the day Souness arrived - and I still have the text message.

From Andy Gray on the Sky website:-

"Boumsong made two errors against Manchester United that cost them the match. That has happened too often for Newcastle, but Titus Bramble will be back soon."

Is he sure?
