Readers of a certain age may remember a pop song by Herman’s Hermits (trivia quiz: what was “Herman’s” real name?) entitled No Milk Today. This typically dotty ditty from the 60s was later parodied as No News Today (“to CNN’s dismay…”), and it was the latter song that came to mind this week, as I received no news of club scores in matches. With seven of the men away on the Gosforth Tourists’ visit to Lincoln, and another batch of people away on holiday, things must have been rather quiet. So, in tribute to Peter Noone (for ’twas he):
No news today, the guys have gone away
They’re on the Gosforth tour, there’s no news that’s for sure.
No news today, the ladies keeping mum
We hope they got to play, but no result has come.
No news today, we cancelled in the Nines,
But Thursday was ok, so how about West Tyne?
No results or score, were our teams down or up?
I’ll try and find out more – but first I’ll watch t’ World Cup
