Smogs 2 v 2 Toon

Sam Allardyce's side preserved their unbeaten start to the season but were twice pegged back by the home side and lost two defenders with what looked like nasty injuries. We lost Stephen Carr inside six minutes and Peter Ramage – the Irishman’s replacement – soon followed.

 MATCH REPORT . . . Bolton Wanderers 1-3 Newcastle United Submitted on 27/08/2007 by Trapper
Bolton, away, the first game of the season!

The first game of the season is always a bit special and with a new manager, new signings and a new owner I thought there would have been a bit more interest in seeing Big Sam return to his roots.

“Get off, you’re $hit”
Perhaps last season, after a fairly flat performance with hardly any chances, then that would have been the shout at Sid James’ Park. On Saturday, at 2pm, the only voice heard moaning about the performance was Stud’s.

NEW BADGE Submitted on 13/08/2007 by ?
A top quality, UK manufactured, 3 colour hard enamel badge, with a traditional style secure brooch. It’s nice and small - 18mm diameter - just about the same as 5p coin. (For the fossils at the front of the bus it’s about the size of a Farthing.)

This is a very limited production run, priced @ £3 for Carrville Mags. See the usual salesmen if you want one or send a message to reserve a future collector’s item.

Chicken Liver Submitted on 09/08/2007 by ?
Much has been made of the late change of heart over the sale of bling boy. I think it’s a tremendous bit of brinkmanship by Ashley and Mort.

It looks like we can afford to really take the pi$$.

There seem to be two options at the end of this game of chicken
  • His agent can negotiate a reduced wages deal with West Ham – allowing them save some cash to pay the new asking price. (If he’s really homesick he’ll take pay-cut.)


  • He can stay, turn-up for work every day and sweep the car park - or serve hot dogs – or take care of the half time divots. (Thank you for this suggestion Surf Star – others welcome on the board.)
Needing to move back home to resolve his reported family problems is bollox. And I couldn’t give a monkeys about his undisclosed liver illness. He’s on £60,000 a week and can look after his health, his mam, her health, his partner, her kids, his kids, his mates (and their kids) and all of the no-marks in his favourite barbers, by moving them up here – they’d all be welcome in Coxhoe.

He’s unprofessional, self-deluded, a fcukwit, and a total waster, who has got himself fit, at long last, at our expense, after contributing nothing for years, but then realised he’s not guaranteed a regular place in the team. Otherwise why didn’t he play this transfer card at the end of last season?

String the twad along.

Tickets Submitted on 01/08/2007 by ?
Spare tickets for home games during the coming season are going to be a lot harder to sell.

Those who have received their new season ticket will have seen that it’s now a credit card sized swipe-card. As a result, tearing out a ticket and passing it on to mates of mates is not possible. It’s all or nothing. Definitely out is selling spares outside the ground or in the Irish Club.

Once again we have secured use of the two tickets together in the East Stand. Although we have not had to pay upfront for them, we need to recover the full cost of the season tickets – which is just short of £1,200.

Sale of these two tickets will be given priority over any spares that arise. The ticket price will be £30 each, regardless of the opposition. This compares very favourably to the match day prices charged by NUFC for tickets in the East Stand - between £36 and £42 per game.

So that we can do our best to sell any other tickets arising, please check the fixture list carefully - take account of TV changes - and provide as much notice as possible.
