TOTT on the Toon!
But do you really know anything about the person you`re talking to? ToTT on the Toon is the new weekly series that will help you to get to know the posters on the forum.
We interviewed Poisoned_Monkey!!!
Let`s start by asking your age:
29 or as I prefer 23 & 6 bits.
Mile roundtrip to an average game:
18 miles for home games.
How long have you supported NUFC?
I`d say all my life but really from my first game a 2-1 win at home to West Brom in 1990
How many games do you get to (home and away) each season?
Work commitments mean a 3pm Saturday kick off is always a nightmare for me, so only managed 9 games last season.7 home and 2 away. Back to crazy premier league kick off times I should manage a fair few more this season.
Where abouts do you sit in SJP?
I`ve sat just about everywhere in the ground but I wouldn`t swap a seat in the balcony in level 7 for anywhere else. Best atmosphere in the ground by a mile.
Moment that`s made you proud to be a Geordie?
West Brom game at home last season shortly after Lovenkrands dad had passed away. The whole of level 7 spent the second half singing the Lovenkrands song with so much warmness and passion it was almost as if we were giving him a giant group hug.
Moment that`s made you question your allegiance/sanity.
Don`t think anything could happen so bad that I`d question my allegiance (*Touches a huge bit of wood*).The style of play under Mr Hippo Heed most definitely had me questioning why I would waste good money to watch a 90 minute game of head tennis.
Favourite game of last season?
5-1 against Cardiff, great to watch some good incisive attacking football and even funnier with BowburnMag arriving late to miss the first two goals!
Favourite game at SJP?
3-2 Derby win against the great unwashed. Don`t think I`ve ever celebrated a goal like Emre`s free kick before or since.
Favourite goal of all time?
Probably a bit controversial but Roberts goal in the 3-1 win over Aresnal under Sir Bobby. Nothing special about the goal it was more to do with the belief that we had a team that might actually be good enough to win the league.
Your Toon Hero
Sir Bobby. A true gentleman & I`m glad I had the privilege of having manage the team I love.
Ever met a player - if so what were they like?
Through work I`ve met a fair few so the quick run down on them….
Shearer - It`s Mr Shearer to you. Enough said.
Saylor - Arrogant beyond belief.
Speed - Dead Canny and happy to talk football for hours.
Milner - Much like speed & the polar opposite of Taylor.
Keegan - Posed in my shower, but that`s a story for another day.
How long have you been a ToTT poster?
Since 2007 I think, doesn`t time fly when you`re posting utter ramblings.
Why did you join?
I`d been lurking for quite a while, enjoying the humour and craic from people like Daz, Laz and Office Monkey and eventually signed up myself.
Best Poster on ToTT?
Platini - Talks sense that man!
Most Annoying Poster on ToTT?
I`m not even going to say as he`ll probably cream himself over the attention.
Best thread you`ve seen in your time on ToTT?
The would you s*ag Jessica Rabbit or Penelope Pitstop thread. Utter Utter madness.
NUFC Season prediction
A positively optimistic 12th.
One fantasy signing you`d like to see in a Toon shirt?
One realistic signing you`d be chuffed with this season?
Tell us a chant you`d like to hear belted round the terraces?
"He`s big, he`s fast, don`t text his f**king lass Andy Carroll…Andy Carroll"
Tell us a Joke
A Sunderland fan's wife gets on to the bus holding her 3 week old baby... The bus driver says, 'Hey pet, your baby is the ugliest baby I've ever seen!' The woman pays her fare and goes off and sits up the back of the bus almost in tears.
man says to her 'What's up, love?'..... 'The bus driver has just been very rude to me back there...' The man replies: 'Although you are a filthy Mackem, you shouldn't let him get away with that, I reckon you should go and say something, after all he is a public servant, he can't do that to you...' She says: 'I will then, I'm off'...
The man replies 'Do you want me to hold your monkey...?!'...
Who's your Dream Woman?
One Question you`d like us to ask the next poster interviewed?
How would you feel about Mike Ashley, if we won a major trophy in the next 2 years?
If you`d like to be in the hot seat next week and have some not-very-quick questions fired at you, then message -Morty- or one of the other site journalists.
