Whinging Geordies!

Last updated : 01 September 2006 By Reggie Holdsworth

First we had them grieving after we called a game off a couple of years ago because of a millimeter of snow. Boro won the re-arranged game by-the-way!

Then we had them whinging because their allocation at the Riverside was cut due to persistent standing. What don't they inderstand about “this is an all-seater stadium – please do not stand”.

More recently we had the digs about Gareth Southgate taking over as manager without the necessary coaching badges, using Newcastle as a yardstick, “they've done it, so why can't we do it”? Bollocks, if the Gate is the right man for the job, he's the right man for the job.

Now we have them whinging because Jonathan Woodgate decided to come home to Boro instead of them. And finally we won't let them have Mark Viduka, even trying to tempt us with James Milner. Sorry, we are not playing, do you want your ball back now?

There is of course only one way to solve the differences between the two clubs and that is on the pitch, roll on October the 21st for the first of this seasons installments.

Oh, and if there are any Geordies reading this who may decide to jump from the Tyne Bridge at some point in the future, please remember it was built with Teesside steel!
