SOOOTHAMPTON 2 THE TOON 0

Posted '10:10am bells' Monday 26th November 2012

"IT WAS ALL GOOD UNTIL IT KICKED OFF!"

An absoloootleee disastrous November continued @ St Mary's yesterday when we went doon 2-0 to a relegation threatened Sooothampton team who have been at or near to the bottom of the table since the beginnin' of the season.

The match stats speak for themsels:
Sooothampton had loads of chances throughoot the game and if it wasn't for Tim Krul in wor goal who made several vital saves the scoreline would have been much worse. (although he waz at fault for BOTH their goal!)
The home side aalso hit the woodwork three times az wor midfield and defence put in a shambolic display!

The anly action that we can remember in wor favour waz when Davide Santon nodded a bullet heeder towards the corner of their goal, anly to be denied by a fantastic block from their keeper!
Anita aalso shud have scored but fluffed hiz easy chance! (Cisse and Ba were totally ineffective!)

After the match we faced a one mile trek back to the train station in torrential rain and we were soaked to the skin by the time we got there to complete a day of misery! (It was then onward to Victoria Station and then King's Cross and we eventually crossed the King Edward Bridge ower the Tyne @ '12:45am bells' on Sunday mornin'!)

The result meens that we havvent won any of wor six games played in November and with anotha away game against 'The Pulis P*ss Potts of Stoke' loomin' on Wednesday neet, things divvint look good!---do they?

Toon team: Krul, Simpson, Williamson, Steven Taylor (Perch 90), Santon, Gutierrez, Tiote, Anita (Marveaux 65), Ferguson (Sammy Ameobi 46), Cisse, Ba

Attendance: 31,410 (2,000 or so very unhappy Toon fans!) 

Wor manager 'I Beg Your Pardew' had the quote of the day---which just aboot summed it up!
"It was all good until it kicked off!"
