    • Mark Davies

    • Toontaff

      Metro to Palladium of Plight…………….

      • Wor Lass

        Find that photo on the internet. It`s a roundabout outside Sunlun with the Stadium of $hite signed then an official MoT match-day sign that says “For football follow Newcastle”. Priceless.

    • Leazes.

      Many a true word…… there aren’t any on sale to away fans on the EFL site…. they are selling them for all clubs except United in the draw…. strange.

    • Chris-Chapple

      i would think so as it would be like a home game for Newcastle.

      • Realist

        You ain’t got a clue, demand will be high for home and away tickets.

        • Kenny

          nobody takes any notice of scum like you,
          [email protected]@king moron
          blocked schitt head

          • Realist

            😂I’d spark you Kenny but then again I’m starting to think your abit simple minded so then again I wouldn’t take liberties against someone who’s backward.

          • Cushty lad

            Kenny. The north easts answer to “Joey Essex” 😂

          • Cushty lad

            Mind he is Leazes ‘joey’! He’ his little lap dog. I’am sure it his love child!

  • Fisherking

    Surely we’ll get a whole end to fill cannot wait

  • Chris-Chapple

    if they beat us then the Mackems will be happy for at least a year maybe more.
    very sad people.

  • Paul Patterson

    Bit unfair the full mackem first team playing the U23’s.

    • Toontaff

      That’s why we’re giving them a chance by playing our under 21’s! We want the mackems to have a chance.

  • Realist

    If Northumbria police stop us getting tickets for this , football is officially dead.

    • Milburn_Taylor

      it would be very good if all the trolls were dead

      • Realist

        😂Your the definition of the modern day keyboard weirdo.

        • Milburn_Taylor

          Not really, but I’ve sussed you as a troll straight away. Met guys like you before if fact I’ve just done 3 months for GBH
          You want some let me know
          I’d be happy to accommodate
          Then we’ll see who’s a keyboard warrior

          • Realist

            Well tommorow I will be in Trent house before match.

          • Mark Davies

            He wont haha

          • Realist

            It’s pathetic mate, but if people offer something on he can have his chance. He’s the one wanting it. Might see him tommorow in the Trent eh.

          • Mark Davies

            Doubt it as like a lot of people on here they are just hard behind a keyboard. Thick as a castle wall and soft as a butter block in the sahara.

          • Realist

            I posted a comment about getting Sunderland allocation and he wishes I was dead. Social media is the pits these days.

          • Mark Davies

            He and lets say leazes, john mag, tripple m, kenny etc are all the same sad little man. I really feel sorry for them.

          • Realist

            It’s their/his way of thinking/opinion or no way.

          • Mark Davies

            Aye. Tossers. Strange noone ever wants to meet. Fight behind a keyboard but real fams engage with each other as away days are the best. Lets all boycott when you dont go anyway etc. If we get bought out will these so called supporters want thier tickets back. Struggle on

          • Realist

            I agree. I’ve offered to meet people for a pint of here before but like you say they always go shy. Best way is to talk things through first like you say. I will be at Huddersfield next Sat also happily meet for a pint. I’ve nothing to hide to anyone on here. Hopefully they can’t get their tickets back. You should stick with the team through thick and thin imo.

          • Milburn_Taylor

            Big mistake, be there 3pm tomorrow

          • Mark Davies

          • Realist

            Ready when you are then big man

  • Carverlier football

    Excellent – no lose shot to nothing :) If they win, well it doesn’t really count because it’s seniors against U21s. If we win, kinda humiliating for them

  • Bring on the Mackems! We will obviously be underdogs but the young lads will cherish this.

  • JohnCornwell’sHair

    If our young’uns beat them, their humiliation is complete. Got to sting when your clubs biggest game of the season is against Newcastle’s U21’s.

  • Squintytoonarmy

    Seaburn casuals will be licking their lips at this one. Doubt they got much bite off the likes of Fleetwood and Accrington !!

    • Realist

      On they other hand though they’ve got the likes of pompey Shrewsbury Bristol rovers coventry.
