The Evening Chronicle, in their report about the Plymouth match have made a wee blunder in their report.
Chris Hughton – only concentrating on game
What is wrong with this statement in the Evening Chronicle today:
“A bone-crunching 818-mile, eight-hour bus journey is the last thing United need after a long, hard season.”
Of course it’s an 818 round trip to Plymouth, and we know there’s a direct flight from Newcastle to Plymouth, but those scheduled flights could well be cancelled because of the ash in the air, causing real problems for Newcastle fans too.
And those motorways must be really fast over there being able to get 818 miles in just 8 hours – wow. 😀
We are actually vacationing in Plymouth for a week this summer with my wife’s sister Ann, and her and husband Mick, who are flying down from Newcastle, but only after the World Cup final – I’m not daft.
My brother-in-law Mick is a long-term (very long term) season-ticket holder at Newcastle, so we hope to sort out all of Newcastle’s problems that week – but please don’t tell the wives.
But Hughton as usual is only focused on the task ahead at Home Park, as he said today:
“We’ve been approaching it the way we would any other game really.” “Irrespective of what happens we want to win the game.”
“You always want to win something at the first available opportunity and if that is as a result of what happens at WestBrom then be it.”
“For us we are just using the same professional approach we have all season.” “We have our own targets and we push on with them.”
When the game kicks of at Plymouth, Newcastle may already be Champions of the Coca Cola Championship.
If WBA don’t beat Middlesbrough on Saturday, in a game that kicks off at 5:15pm, then we’ll have already won it, and if WBA win, then just one point on Monday will give us the Championship.
Howay The Lads!!
