THE TOON 3 DE BORDEAUX 'WINOS' 0

Updated '10:35am bells' Friday 5th October 2012
THE TOON ATTACK THE LEAZES END

This waz a 'vintage' performance from The Toon who played once more in wor 'high viz' alumanus strips @ St James' last neet to beat the men from the wine capital of France 3-0

Wor prediction of a fifty/fifty team of resorve and forst team players waz 'spot on' and this waz withoot doubt wor best performance of the season!

We opened wor accoont in the 16th minute when Gabriel Obertan sent in a pin-point cross for an unmarked Shola Ameobi, who had the simple task of sidefootin' the baall into the net @ The Leazes End!

Wor lead waz doubled soon after with a spectacular own goal from Henrique, when he sliced his attempted clearance past hiz dispairin' keeper from a Danny Simpson cross!

It waz aroond aboot this time that fightin' broke oot in the visitors enclosure in the Leazes/East Stand corner. At forst we thought that some Toon idiots had infiltrated their 'end', but it torned oot that they were fightin' amongst themsels! (too much wine---no doubt!)

It waz soon time to pop the vintage wine corks worsels, however!--- when Demba Cisse roonded the game off with the final goal of the game when he convorted off the post at The Gallowgate End from an excellent Shane Ferguson cross!


ACTION @ THE GALLOWGATE END

To bee honest 'The Winos' were 'p*ss poor' which we didn't expect and if we were honest a draw at best, waz predicted by 'us' before the game!

With this win we are now top of wor group table!
