"ANLY 25% POZESHIN ---
BUT ITS GOALS THAT COUNT!"
On a bleak day in West Yorkshire with freezing rain faallin from the sky, we somehow pulled off wor 2nd away win with an excellent goal from Rondon 10 mins into the 2nd half, which proved to be the winner!
|THE OWNER OF THIS BAR IZ OBVIOUSLY A JIMI HENDRIX FAN!|
The day started off at 'The Central' (station) and we got to wor destination in good time for some much needed liquid 'sustenance'
in The Kings Heed next to 'uddersfeeeld station, which woz suprizingly half empty!
After more 'sustenance' 'doon the road' it woz time to heed for the tornstiles az the 'said' freezing rain came doon in buckets!
The forst half woz az bleak az the weather and we anly had 2 chances at the far end from us, from Atsu and Schar!
The home side wornt very good eethaa az the half ended goalless!
(NUFC were playin' in wor change claret and blue hooped shirts for the forst time this season)
The 2nd half wosnt much better than the forst, but we took the lead in the 55th when a through baall from Manquillo foond Rondon free up front and he made 'ne missteak' az he excellently beat Lossi in the 'uddersfeeeld goal to send the 2,400 Toon fans wild with delight behind that goal!
Some fans fell ower seats in the 'celebrations' and one lass woz sprawled on the groond in the seats in front of me, az somebody knocked mee Toon hat off and anothaa kid punched me in the side of the face (accidently!) (it's still sore!)
|RONDON'S GOAL (MOTD)|
It proved to be the anly goal of the game, with Dubravka in The Toon goal pullin' off a great save just after the goal to deny the home side!
A goal from Perez woz then harshly ruled 'offside' but it 'mattered not' az we held on for the 3 valuable points to move us up to 14th in the table and (more importantly) 6 points above the drop zone (for now!)
If anly we could replicate <(we naa aall the big words!) wor away form at home, then we would be in the top half of the table!
More 'celebratory' liquid lubrication were partook in 'uddersfeeld and York on the way back!
