THE TOON 3 THE BLUE WIG MOB WHO PLAYED IN RED 0

Updated '8:30pm bells' Tuesday 4th December 2012

Well!---we won the 'must win it' game against the 'Blue Wig Mob' last neet (who played in aall red!) but we did make 'hard work' of it, and for most of the game the visitors played with ten men after Figueroa waz sent off for pullin' doon Cisse in the Gallowgate End box! (a contentious decision which infuriated Martinez in the away dugoot!) 
The resultin' penalty waz dispatched by Cisse's  fellow countryman Demba Ba to put us one-nil up after 12 minutes play.
8 minutes later a Davide Santon shot waz blocked by their keeper but Demba Ba waz on hand to score goal number two and hiz tenth of the season in the Premya Leegue.

The visitors didn't give up though and attacked wor goal on several occassions, with wor defence lookin' very fragile to say the least!

Bigirimana came on for Tiote at the start of the 2nd half and he cemented the win with a fantastic strike from a canny way oot @ The Leazes End.

The empty gaps in the normally full East Stand seats told it's own story and wor prediction of a 45-46,000 crowd waz way too high az anly 43,858 braved the icy conditions, with those who chose not to gan, ne doubt watchin' it in front of a waam fire in their livin' rooms or their local 'drinkin dens'! ("F*****' SOFT C***S!")

Wor prediction of 'The Blue Wigs' bringin' a motor bike and sidecar load of fans up wazzint far wrang, az they had aboot TEN times that number huddled in the corner of 'level 7' of 'The Leazes End'!

We remain in 14th place, but now 5 points above 'the abyss'!

Toon team: Krul, Simpson, Williamson, Coloccini, Santon (Ferguson 49), Tiote (Bigiramana 46), Anita, Marveaux, Gutierrez (Sammy Ameobi 75), Ba, Cisse,

Attendance: 43,858 (lowest leegue crowd of season by a mile!)
(10 motor bike and sidecar loads of 'Blue Wigs'!)
