FARCE IN FLORIDA***ORLANDO 1 THE TOON 0

Posted '7:15 am bells' Sunday 24th July 2011
"I'm a canny cetre forward---like!"

This match in 'The State of Disneyland' @ '1:30 bells' this mornin' had to be played on a plastic pitch due to the grass one, (which had hastily been laid on the top ), comin' up 'like a loose carpet', which then had to be removed before the match could take place for fear of yet more injuries to key players!

We had precisely ne chances in the forst half and then Orlando, who play in the lower leagues of America, struck in the 76th minute of the second half when Kevin Molino fired home to win the 'drastic plastic' game 1-0. 
We could have done with a 'Mickey Mouser' apparently, (Scouser, Joey Barton, perhaps?) as we were totally inafective again up front!
USA tour so far: Played two, won none, scored none! 

Attendance:10,889 (in a 70,000 seater stadium!)


Better news from Holland though, where a Toon XI beat an Utrecht XI 3-2 on their trainin' pitch after bein' 2-0 doon at one stage.
Joey Barton , Michael Richardson and Ryan Donaldson were wor goalscorers

(more to follow later when aa finish work!)
