I Am A Lucky Guy – We Are Still Not Safe



Martin Dibravka has been interviewed in the Chronicle today, and he is managing to survive during the coronavirus lockdown, with the help of his girlfriend Lucia and his dog Shay.

Both are upbeat during this period, so that’s helping Martin a lot.

🙂

They help Martin keep upbeat during these long days of uncertainty about the future.

And yes, Martin has named his dog after one of Newcastle’s best ever goalkeepers – Shay Given.

This is what Martin has told the Chronicle today:

“I am a lucky guy because my partner is very positive and my family and friends are too. They know we are alone here.”

“I am just trying to do my gym routine and trying to be in good shape when I come back.”

“We’re in a position where we are comfortable.

“We’re still not safe, but in a good position, so we need more points.

“I really hope we can finish the season because I miss football a lot.

“It’s important to stay home right now and we’ll see when the season starts again.”

Martin’s right, we are still not safe but we are a decent 8 points clear with 9 games to go – so we have a good chance of staying up.

Put it this way, it would be a shock now if we were relegated.

But we cannot forget – this is Newcastle.

    Best comedic situation on the blog today is The Wife asking if the Comedy Open Mike session was over followed closely by Bobbybee and his conspiracy rant. 🙂

    The thing is if ash does scupper this bid where on earth do we go from here.

    10000 free tickets had to be given away thi season.

    New owners, new manager, new players = the stadum will be full and rocking every home game.

    Ashley, bruce and maybe brady and hendrick on frees = massive anticlimax.

    So with social distancing does that mean a sell out at SJP will now be 25k and you can pick up a bargain on fold down plastic seats on gumtree? The lines for the turnstiles will be down the quayside on matchdays because of the 2m rule.

    I was thinking what with Disney doing these live action remakes they won’t be able to do Snow White and the Seven Dwarfs now will they? Doc will be busy and Sneezy will definitely not be welcome back. Sad really.

    only every 4th seat could be used in each row, and only every other row could be used 12/14k max in the ground per game,

    I really love reading the articles on this blog and appreciate the work Ed (and not forgetting Neil and the wife put in) but I sometimes wonder why I read the comments. I don’t mean everyone, some very good rational posters on here but there are some strange cats too.

    I was always a big fan of the BobbyBee heart on the sleeve stuff
    but the arrogance of conspiracy theorists that they are the only
    ones to understand the world is breath taking.

    Do you know Bill Gates never vaccinates his kids? Obviously you won’t know.

    but me in my wheelchair in Ashington knows it

    I’d go Robert – Ben arfa got two goals of the season in two matches, Robert got two in one.

    geordietom has spent the afternoon trying to belittle and put down THE FROG, I have not once seen HOPPITY have a go at geordietom. geordietom calls THE GREEN ONE repetitive yet repeats he’s confident of a takeover about ten times a day. I think geordietom needs to clean his own act up before telling others how to behave.

    I view of the fact that neither Robert nor Ben Arfa made any significant success at Newcastle I would say the genius of Ben Arfa puts him way ahead of Robert.

    “When I went to bed last night I think we were in to the first page of comments. When I looked at six this morning it was up to six pages. Trying to read NYmag and RobLeenio discuss whatever it is they discuss is like listening to a chess match on the radio.”

    WOW. Now you know how we feel having to you listen to you prattle on about Duolingo!

    I would prefer HBA playing under SBR.

    Robert playing under P45due would of been a train wreck IMHO.
