THE BLUE WIGS 2 THE TOON 1

Posted '8:35am bells' Monday 18th March 2013
THE TOON (in lime green) ATTACK THE BLUE WIGS
GOAL IN THE 2nd HALF (view from row 'K')

Within the last week we have won two games in dramatic style in the last minutes of games but this time the boot<(or shud taht be 'hand'?) waz on the otha 'foot' when The Blue Wigs grabbed a last minute winner in controversial fashion!

The main taalkin point of the match of course waz the absolutely horrendous 'leg break' tackle on Massadio Haidera by Wigan's Callum McManaman in the forst half!
He wasn't even booked by blind referee Halsey and after lenghthy treatment Haidara waz stretchered off with a suspected broken leg!
And no!--we didnt even get a free kick from this and there waz fury at half time az coach John Carver tried to 'get at' McManaman az the players left the pitch!
In between aall this the home side had taken the lead when a defensive error by Santon gave Beausejour the simplest of chances to poke the baall into the net!

ACTION FROM THE FAR END IN THE 1st HALF

The equaliser came in the 72nd minute when Santon made amends for hiz forst half error when he waz put through and he placed his shot nicely into the right hand corner of the net to send the 5,000 Toon fans behind that goal wild!

It wasnt to be wor day though and a blatent hand baall at the far end from us from a Wigan corner in the 90th minute of the game, saw the baall drop to Kone's feet and he had the simple task of stabbin' the baall home to break wor hearts!---and send us to within six points of 'the abyss'!---we played in wor horrendous lime green 'hi viz' strip az well---it just wasnt wor day!

Toon team: Elliot, Debuchy <(Haidera 13)<(Perch 26), Steve Taylor, Yanga, Santon, Gutierrez, Tiote, Marveaux, Sissoko, Gouffran (Shola Ameobi 67), Cisse

Attendance: 22,297 (highest of season) (5,000 very angry Toon fans!)
