THE LIVERBIRDS 1 THE TOON 1

Updated '10:10pm bells' Monday 5th November 2012

"WALK ON!---THROUGH THE RAIN!"
"AND YOOO'LL NE-VER WALK ALONE!"

This draw ended a run of seven successive defeats @ Anfield, but still we havent won here since 1995 and it iz nuw 18 games withoot success!

The home side started off with 'aall guns blazin' and it seemed anly a matter of time til they made the breakthrough! 
The view from row 2 of The Anfield Road End waz 'breathtakin' az yoo can see, (see below!) and for forty eight quid (plus a poond bookin' fee!) we couldn't complain!---but did the hat gan to the top of hiz heed???
"EXCUSE ME 'DIBBLE'!---BUT! DOES THAT HAT
GAN TO THE TOP OF YOUR HEED???"

However!--despite the home sides dominance in the orly exchanges, (we just managed to see roond 'dibble's' helmet!) it waz 'The Toon' who took the lead in the 44th minute of the forst half when Yohan Cabaye, on the left from us, hit a stunnin' strike across the face of the goal into the far corner of the net in front of The Kop, after Ben Arfa had sent a pin point cross to him across the box, to send the Toon faithful in the Anfield Road End into ecstasy!


"WHY DOES IT AALWAYS RAIN ON ME?"

At half time there waz a hilarious incident when a pitch waata sprinkler went 'beserk' and sprayed waata onto some 500 scousers in the main stand 'posh seats', drenchin' them to the bone!    
"Er!"---I naa we shudn't laff!---BUT!-------"HA!"--"HA!"
(see top photo!)

In the second period 'The Liverbirds' had many chances to level things and this finally happened at the mid point of the half when 'divin champion' Luis Suarez roonded Tim Krul in 'The Toon' goal and slotted home to break wor hearts!
THE TOON ATTACK THE ANFIELD ROAD END

'Fab' Coloccini waz then sent off in the 84th minute for a downward kick on 'diver Suarez' in frustration! (he did hiz divin' act a couple of times durin the game and had gave 'Fab' a torrid time throughoot the match!)

We held oot though for the point and it waz a releeeved Toon Army who left Anfield in the better mood!

On the injury front James Perch, Demba Ba and Yohan Cabaye aall limped off the pitch at various points durin' the match, to give wor manager a few heedaches ower the next few days in antisipation of wor trip to Brugge on Thorsday in the Europa Leegue!

Toon team: Krul, Anita, Steven Taylor, Coloccini, Santon, Ben Arfa, Perch (Simpson 25), Cabaye (Ferguson 67), Gutierrez, Ba (Sammy Ameobi 48), Cisse

Attendance: divvint naa yet but it waz a full hoose!  (wor guess is 44,500 plus, includin' 2,000 Toon fans!") "ER!"---just foond oot: 44,803
