THE TOON 1 MARITIMO 1

Posted '10:00am bells' Friday 23rd November 2012
'THE TOON' ATTACK THE LEAZES END!


Yet anothaa inept home performance from 'The Toon' meant that Bordeaux, who won 2-1 in Brugge, are now top of the group table, meanin' that we must win there on December 6th or finish 2nd and face the possibility of playin' one of the Champions Leegue 'dropouts' in the knockoot stage of the competition in February. (ie: we have DEFINATLEEE qualified!) 

We took the lead at the mid-point of the forst half when Ben Arfa supplied 'Marveaux the Magician' and hiz shot went through the legs of the Maritimo keeper @ The Leazes End to send the smaall crowd into raptures!

But that waz az good az it got and the minnows from Madeira had chances to level things in the forst half but couldn't make the breakthrough.

The second half waz even worse than the forst with passes gannin astray and hardly any efforts on target from us.

SPOT THE 'MARI' FANS!"
Maritimo on the otha hand, fought hard for the equaliser and went close on a few occassions before finally gettin' their much deserved goal when Finlis (in a carbon copy of wor goal!) fired through Tim Krul's legs in the 80th minute to send their smaall band of 35 fans<(yes! we coonted them!) in the Milburn Stand paddock wild with delight! 
They even had a great chance to win it when Finlis again, (me thinx?) shot wide when it waz much easier to score!


Toon team: Krul, Simpson, Steven Taylor, Coloccini, Santon, Marveaux, Bigirimana, Anita, Sammy Ameobi (Abeid 77), Ben Arfa (Ba 40), Cisse (Amalfitano 50)

Attendance: anly 21,632 (35 'Mari' fans!)
