Wife Goes Shopping But Newcastle Players Ready For Big Test

It’s a crucial game tomorrow against Leicester City and my wife of 42 years, Madeline, has just made a very wise decision – she’s decided to go out shopping while the game is on TV over here – that’s a good decision – obviously made from past experience.

Paul Dummett – in action at Swansea

Maybe it’s because I told her a Newcastle defeat tomorrow would be a complete and utter disaster?

My wife knows less than zilch about football, and I don’t know how many times I’ve said – they the ones in the black and white stripes – when she invariably asks – which team is Newcastle? 😀

But it’s really going to be very hard to take if we cannot get a win tomorrow, but we’re hoping for the best – that’s for sure – maybe we can even get some luck tomorrow

Paul Dummett is likely to line up at left-back unless Alan Pardew has some surprises when the team is announced tomorrow at around 2:00 pm.

Paul is fit after he pulled out of the Welsh squad with an injury almost two weeks ago, and this is what the Geordie has said about tomorrow’s game:

“It’s a different pressure, especially when you’re near the bottom of the league and haven’t picked up a win in the Premier League yet, so it adds more pressure but that’s what we’re paid to play for, so it’s up to us to go to St. James’ and win.”

“Leicester are a good team, they work well together and they work hard.” “They’ve proved that if you do that in the Premier League then you can win games.”  ¨They beat Manchester United so it’ll be a tough game, but we’ll definitely be up for it.”

If we cannot win tomorrow, it looks like we could be in for another long hard season – and its the very last thing we want after the last couple of seasons, which haven’t been great.

Wonder when that multi-Billionaire from somewhere out there, is going to buy out Mike Ashley and say his (or her) goal in the next few years is to return Newcastle United to its past greatness?

How Will Newcastle Fare Against Leicester City?

    Billionaire wise I think we need to have a word with Russell Crow.
    He bought the Rabbitohs over here when they were struggling and they just won the Grand final last week. Not sure if he knows any more than your wife about our game but he clearly likes a challenge and can’t be worse than the circus we got now.

    I missed out on the power ball jackpot so I’m out

    Wife: “How would you describe me?”
    Husband: “ABCDEFGHIJK.”
    Wife: “What does that mean?”
    Husband: “Adorable, beautiful, cute, delightful, elegant, fashionable, gorgeous, and hot.”
    Wife: “Aw, thank you, but what about IJK?”
    Husband: “I’m just kidding!”

    Do you get it.

    because of your correspondence and encouragement of multiple poster bill,ted count or whatever you called him, I thought at first you were one of his aliases, Ed’s cryptic correspondence on top of your inane,pointless and non football related posts further backed this up. The fact you are still posting inane and pointless drivel proved me wrong and as you aren’t particularly offensive you will continue to post your pointless, non football related drivel.

    A man walks into a bar and the bartender says, “If you can make that horse over there laugh, you can get free drinks for the rest of the night.” The man walks over, says something to the horse, it laughs, and he walks back over to the bar to collect his free drinks. The next night, the man goes back to the bar and the bartender asks the man if he can make the horse cry. The man walks over, does something to the horse, and it starts to cry. The bartender asks, “How did you make it cry?” The man replies, “Well, to make the horse laugh last night I told it I had a bigger dick and to make it cry tonight I showed it.”

    As for talking football, there’s nothing to talk about yet, talking about Ashley is getting boring, talking about pardew is getting boring, talking about protests is getting boring, how long has everybody keep talking about those two people and yet surprise surprise they are still at this club, what you want to talk about our results so far yet again nothing to talk about, we all want them out but how do we get them out, until they have gone there’s nothing to talk about, nearly on every topic and every comment it’s about those two, nobody talks about football on here.

    From tomorrow’s independent

    No bonuses at Newcastle for all staff unless Alan Pardew’s team finishes in top 10

    There’s no way we will be in the top 10 at the end of the season.

    Saw Sammy Ameobi going into the Nuffield today. Either he has a very odd natural gait or he won’t be in the team tomorrow.

    Blah Blah Blah ffkn Blah. Pardew a wanker of the highest calibre. Detest the arrogance of the man. If he had an ounce of pride he would fukc right off. Unfortunately he likes
    himself a bit. Give him hell the morra boys. Toon Army!

    “There’s no doubt that our league position would be better than it is (without involvement in the Europa League).”

    So this year…

    Oh yeah, another excuse from the idiot which has been exposed.

    I don’t think it was pretty but hull last season towards the end had a team goal

    the one and only I can remember for well over a year

    its sad times for us

    normally in all walks of life you can always say oh well it could be worse and then you insert your next bit

    but as a football fan we are the inserted line we are as worse as it can get

    Dr Ed.
    Your good lady seems to have something in common with Pardew – he knows zilch about football as well!

    Are Mrs Ed and Pardew related at all?
