As I welcome in the new year it's time to reflect on some of the good people that won't be with us and one stands out for me in Sir Bobby Robson.
The world will be a sadder place without his knowledge, personality and entertaining quotes. One that instantly springs to mind is when the BBC were interviewing Shola Ameobi Q " What does the boss call you??" A "Carl Cort " Absolute Quality!!
Therefore, this weekend I'm going for a F.A Cup treble for the Coldenders to ponder. In a competition that SRB loved and respected i'm going for "away the lads" in Newcastle United, Man City and Liverpool to win all their games. £10 stake pays £42 at skybet
The following Geordie's amongst many will be raising a glass for the great man tonight - Ant&Dec, Super Al, Sting, Jimmy Nail, Jayne Middlemiss, Neil Tennant of PSB, Mad John McCririck, Brian Blessed (Gordon's Alive) Noel Gallaghers ex Missus, Mark Knopfler, Si King of The Hairy Bikers, Michelle Bass, Miriam Stopard, Wor Cherly and the new king of pop Joe McElderry.
With confidence and a bit of luck I predict that in 2010 I will take my total profit at the end of the season to over £500!!!
Happy new year everyone from Toon Towers!!!!
I also send out New Year best wishes to everyone and hope you all have a prosperous and very happy 2010.
ENGLAND - 2010 - BELIEVE
