THE TOON 2 HARRY'S HOTSPURS 2

Posted '9:45 pm bells' Sunday 16th October 2011

This was an absoluteleee brilliant game for the 'cootch potato' 'neutral TV fans', watchin' this on 'Sky', (especially the 2nd half!)but did nothin' for the weak hearted diehearted fans who were actually present for this 2-2 thriller!

Spors took the lead in the forst half when 'The Toons' Steven Taylor was judged to have fouled Adebayor in the box and after several seconds the 'ref in red' eventually gave a penalty, which was duly convorted by DutchmanVan De Faart. (er!---sorry!--that shud read---Van Der Vaart!) to gave the Londoners a 1-0 lead five mins before half time @ The Gallowgate End

We hit back with just two minutes gone in the 2nd half when Demba Ba hit a sweet 'Spiderman' cross home to level the scores.

'Happy Harry'??? (Spors manager!) then brought on Jemaine Defoe to score a belter in front of the 3,000 or so 'Spors fans' housed in 'Level 7' of 'The Leazes End' in the 68th minute and it looked az though at this point that wor unbeaten five and a half month run waz comin' to an end!

However!---'I Beg Your Pardew' (Toon manager!)then made a double striker substitution of Ben Arfa and Shola Ameobi (replacin' Demba Ba and Leon Best) a few minutes later, which paid off handsomely when 'Shola' cut in from the 'East Stand side' to hit a fantastic shot past the despairin' Spors keeper to level things once again, with just fower minutes to spare and extended wor unbeaten run for another week at least!


Wor '100 pub crawl challenge' started off at the appropriatly named 'Hotspur' boozer in the Haymarket (pub 21) az predicted and we did a fortha fower 'new' pubs, before retirin' for the neet at 'Rosies Bar' (pub 25) after the match!

Attendance 46,420 (3,000 Spors fans)

'Match of the Day's' on soon---must dash!
