"IF ANLY A GAME COULD LAST JUST TWO MINUTES!"
|"THE TOON ATTACK THE GALLOWGATE END!"|
If this waz a boxin' match then we would surely have won it on points, but of course it wasn't and yet anotha defeat at the tail end of the festive period (12th neet isn't til January 6th!) makes it a very sorry situation indeeed!
Just TWO wins oot of the last ELEVEN (NINE defeats!), tells yoo that we are in serious trouble at the wrang end of the table!
The referee didn't help wor cause eetha, by denyin' us a stonewaall penalty in the forst half when Shola waz brought doon in the box---and then he awarded the visitors a soft free kick @ The Leazes End, from which Baines scored a 30 yard screamer!
It started off so well with Demba Cisse puttin' us aheed in the forst minute @ The Gallowgate End, when the baall boonced ower the Scousers defence after an upfield 'punt' by Toon goalie Tim Krul and it fell nicely for hiz bonce and he heeded it straight into the net ower the dispairin' Tim Howard in the visitors goal!
James Perch then hit the post with a heeder, but with wor luck at the moment, it boonced back into play!
Baines free kick then levelled things and we went in 1-1 at the break.
|"GRAINY ACTION @ THE LEAZES END IN THE 2nd HALF|
("Couldn't keep the camera still az I thought
we were aboot to score and waz shakin' like a leaf!")
We had chances to win it in the 2nd half through Shola Ameobi and Santon, who missed glorious chances to sew the game up, but it waz 'The Toffee Noses' who clinched it with another goal conceded through defensive errors in the 60th minute, when substitute Anichebe poked the baall in @ The Gallowgate End.
(Predicted? new signin' and full back Mathieu Debuchy watched on from the Milburn Stand---he must have cringed!)
On 'Match of the Day' later, 'stat man' 'Gary the Crisp', telt us that 'The Toon' were the forst team ever to score three goals away from home in two consecutive Premya Leegue games and not win! (against 'The Arse' last Sat and Man U on Boxin' Day) (some consolation!---"EH!")
That's NE points oot of NINE ower the festive period and THORTEEN goals conceded in three games! (although we HAVE scored SEVEN times in vain!) That's TWENTY goals in total!---sureleee anotha record, 'Gary'?
