THE TOON 3 THE COCKNEY REDS of SALFORD 0 !

Updated '12:30 pm bells' Thorsday 5th January 2012

An absolutleee brilliant performance and result from 'the black 'n' whites' who (literally!) BLEW  'The Cockney boys' away in the gale force conditions!.
Wearin' wor new 'Virgin Money' logo on the front of wor shirts we kicked off towards The Leazes End and it was obvious from the word 'go' that we were gannin for 'the jugular'
Demba Ba (centre of picture) volleys home

Who else but wor hero of the moment Demba Ba to open the scorin' with a fantastic forst goal on the half hour mark. He hit a thunderous volley that gave Lindegaard in the visitors goal 'ne chance' az the baall rocketed past him into the net! 
Yohan Cabaye (2nd Toon player from right) scores 2nd goal

Yohan Cabaye free kick orly in the second period @ The Gallow-gate End doubled wor advantage az the wind howled and rain came 'doon in buckets'!
His superb effort from the edge of the box hit the underside of the bar 'Geoff  Hurst style' and ricocheted ower the goal line to give us breathin' space. (divvint naa if the linesman was Russian?---but he gave it!)

'Hair Transplant Man' Rooney and the rest of the Man U team looked totally devastated and their misery was completed in the final minute with a brilliant heeded own goal by Phil Jones, which left Lindegaard stranded az the wind blew the baall into the empty net! The look on hiz face said it aall---("Will Fergie EVER pick me again!")
Phil Jones heeds past his own keeper for The Toon's 3rd goal 
Lang before the end there were huge empty gaps in the Cockney Reds Supporters Club seats in Level 7
(It's a lang way to London and Cornwall yi naa!) and their normally noisy support was reduced to deathly silence and anly aboot 1,000 of them remained 'til the final whistle!

If a'd telt you before the match that we would win 3-0 you would have said that I was 'VIRGIN ON THE RIDICULOUS'!
