'THE GOODIES' 3 'THE BADDIES' 1 (THE TOON U21s 3 WOLVES U21s 1)

Posted '10:20am bells' Sunday 18th August 2013

Jamie's forst game aged 3 years and 300 days!

JAMIE (STANDIN' BY FENCE) GETS CLOSER TO THE ACTION!

Me and wor lass picked 3 year old grandbairn Jamie up from hiz mammy and daddy's hoose and heeded for The Toon. <(yiv got to catch them young!) <(they've got to lorn to 'suffer' like us!)
Jamie who waz dressed in hiz black n white top for the occasion, waz excited aboot gannin' to the match and asked if we were gannin to 'the beer bar'
"YES!"--aa said, az he danced and waved hiz arms excitedly and off we set to 'The Strawberry'  'beer bar' next to the groond!

A pint of orange 'beer' waz consumed by Jamie az me and wor lass supped the normal 'broon stuff'!
Jamie then decided to get in a spot of 'serious pool practice'!

"CRUCIBLE!***CRUCIBLE!***HERE I COME!"

We then heeded for the tornstiles (Jamie crawled under them!) and we picked some seats near to the front, but just before the kick off it started 'chuckin it doon' and so we had to move forthaa back up The East Stand to keep dry!

In the 4th minute Haris Vuckic had a fine shot @ The Leazes End which waz tipped ower the bar by the Wolves keeper!

Then in the 21st minute disaster struck az the visitors took the lead through Altenmi who toe poked the baall past Alnwick in The Toon goal (NOT a good start for Jamie!)

I told Jamie that the team in the orange strip were 'The Baddies' and that we were 'The Goodies'

'The Goodies' then equalised when Vuckic crossed from the right and Gillespey fired home past the Wolves keeper, which brought loud applause from the smaall crowd and Jamie joined in in the celebrations by dancin' doon the steps!

Better waz to come when Adam Armstrong stabbed the baall home just a few minutes later and Jamie celebrated doon the steps once again! (HT: The Goodies 2 The Baddies 1)

The 2nd half waz'nt half az good az the 1st and Jamie who waz gettin' bored by now, torned aroond in hiz seat to face the wrong way!!! <(he had more sense than us!) <(the 'sufferin' had started aalready!)

"SUFFER LITTLE CHILDREN!***SUFFER!"

Then! bang on full time Dan Gosling 'wrapped it up' when he tapped in a loose baall @ 'The Gallowgate End'
Jamie celebrated this time by runnin' alang the front of the East Stand!

The final whistle blew and Jamie's 'debut game' waz complete with a 3-1 win to 'The Goodies'! <(he now haz a lifetime of 'sufferin' to endue!***just like the rest of us!)
