Orlando confirmed on U.S tour.

Orlando's Citrus Bowl.
Newcastle have announced a third date for their tour of America which will see them head to the Sunshine State inbetween trips to Kansas and Ohio.

It’s quite the road trip in terms of distance, and quite the fixture list when you consider it will be three games in six days for the players who will more than likely be gearing up for another season in the Premier League. I just hope it isn’t too much too soon and we don’t see any injuries become of it.

The opponents will be Orlando City who are making their debut in the third tier of the American Soccer Pyramid and are coached by ex-Everton midfielder Adrian Heath. The venue will be the 65,000 capacity Citrus Bowl which was used as a venue for the 1994 World Cup and 1996 Olympics.

That leaves our confirmed fixtures to date looking a bit like this:

20-07-2011 – Kansas City.
23-07-2011 – Orlando City.
26-07-2011 – Columbus Crew.

I’d imagine that will be about it in terms of our US activity over the summer. Hopefully at least one of the matches will be within a reasonable distance and allow some of our American fans to go and watch the Toon.

They may have to do without seeing Joey Barton however who is going to have to plead his case for a visa and try to convince the U.S authorities that he isn’t a danger to the public due to his previous troubles.

On the plus side, maybe Ryan Taylor can get a job as one of those kickers in the NFL? I think he’d probably be rubbish at that aswell, but at least I wouldn’t have to see him trotting out in a black and white shirt ever again. Let’s face it, we know Raylor is the one who is going to get one of those hats with the clappy hands on the front don’t we……

Howay the lads!

    The bookies are still mental over torres, his odds weren’t even worth a look, never mind a punt.

  11. Actually just thinking there what your like maybe your better off not going πŸ˜†

    Spencer I agree mate Raylor gets a lot of unfair stick, he always tries 100% and we have had lots of players that didn’t give 100% so I have always supported the players that give their all even if their average πŸ˜‰

  15. Batty I think fella’s can be a bit like that but πŸ˜† My Lass has to buy her on presents and cards to give me or I would never get round to it. πŸ˜†

  16. just think anyone betting on Ireland (not saying you have Jobey!) would be daft as a brush. What would they be basing the decision on? Form? Past scoring record? Not even like you are going to get mega odds from the bookies either

  17. Moreno- Aye i know that, i wouldn’t do it, but you can’t blame the bookies for trying.
    Big Dave- πŸ˜† πŸ˜† Does she still wipe your arse? πŸ˜†
    Toonsy- If he bangs one in on sunday you’ll love him πŸ˜‰

  18. dave aye but its causing some ****e because him and the gobby girlfriend dropped her mams off ,it wasent so long ago when i slapped her father at this rate she will be gettin a slap soon ,not of me like

  19. Toonsy he has done allright in the few games he has had this year I think he has scored twice and a couple of assists. Ok he challenge in his last game was stupid but he was just back in and he isn’t the 1st player to make a rash challenge,and you could see he was gutted.
    I dont see him as a starter but I would have him over the like’s of Perch any day

  20. spencer- now now, calm down :mrgreen:

    Moreno- aye,
    Williamson 50/1 to score an own goal on sunday, what an odd bet πŸ˜†

  21. dave hes not a door mat he dropped theres of then went on a bender till tuesday ,****in sick of him πŸ‘Ώ

  22. Moreno I would prefer a team of average players giving 100% than a team full of superstars going through the motions. I just think its sad that he gets so much abuse and I cant really see what he has done to warrant it πŸ™

  23. batty, me daughter is 2 next month and me son is about 8 months. One thing I am learning is to appreciate this time as it only gets harder

      (Quote)

  24. Dave, I have the same feeling. players like Ando and Dabizas, they are the sort of players I remember, even though they weren’t superstars

  25. BATTY you keep telling me aboot respect,make sure he gives you some mate divnt you gan soft 😐

  26. well batts if he could give her mum a card he could have delivered one to his own mum before he went on the piss, so you need to have a word with him for the card and for going on a bender he dosn’t want to start that πŸ˜‰
    I was pissed off with me own daughter although she got her a card, but she was working then went on out and never came back to near 11 when her mum was in bed

  27. I don’t think so…
    He’s a right little **** sometimes πŸ˜†

  31. reet boys, that’s me away.

    On the way home from work the missus rang and i asked her if she wanted out bringing back. she said wine, canny unusual as she is scottish and usually gans for cider. Got a bottle of rose and red, she lost interest and if have done them in so I should really be off before I put meself out of action for work the morra. Can’t do these late nights on the vino like.

    A couple of years back, me and me mates used to buy a couple of bottles of red each and play drinking games with shot glasses, used to spacka us. About a year ago, went to see me uncles in elswick and they got me buying a couple of bottles of rose and a bottle of sprite for spritzers. i thought they were gannin soft but **** me, you can down that **** like pop and it doesn’t half get you merry!

    Rare that I have a good drink nowadays so going to turn in. Night all.
