"WE WILL REMEMBER THEM!" >>>>>
|THE SUN BLAZES DOON AZ THE TOON 'BLAZE DOON' ON THE SPORZ GOAL!|
(The Toon are in 'Brazil yellow'!)
"KRUL' LUCK FOR SPORZ, AZ WE HAD THE PORFECT 'REMY'DY!"
It waz 45 years and 1 day since mee forst visit to 'the smoke' when we drew 0-0 with 'The Arse' @ Highbury in 1968, which iz just fower miles doon the road from White Hart Lane!
And this of course torned oot to be a 'very happy annivorary' az we beat 'The Arse's' arch rivals 'Sporz' 1-0 with a superb goal from Loic Remy in the 13th minute, when he rounded Brad Friedel in the home goal @ 'wor end' of the groond!
The 1st half belonged to us az we pressed for the opener from 'the off' and Remy's goal bore 'the fruits of our labour' az the Toon played in their new 'Brazil' 3rd strip of yellow shirts, blue shorts and white socks!
We could have had more but had to settle for a one goal advantage at the break az Sporz predictably 'came at us' from the start of the 2nd half.
Tim Krul waz wor hero of this half when he made save after breathtakin' save az Sporz laid siege to wor goal, but 'lady luck' waz on wor side this time az they just couldn't get the baall into wor net!
The biased ref and hiz two linesmen gave decision after decision to the home side (or shud that be 'b*stard' referee and linesmen?) but somehow we held oot to claim the 3 away points az the 2,400 Toon fans celebrated wildleee at the final whistle after SIX minutes of extra time waz added by 'the b*stard in the black'!
After the match we heeded to 'McGlynn's bar' near King's Cross for a few 'doon yer neck' 'gargels' before heedin for the train yem!
Wor train waz predicably 'dry' on the way back, with one 'Transport Dibble' askin' me THREE TIMES if I had any alcohol in mee bag, az he shaked uncontrollably! <(hopin' that aa had, so he could 'nick me'!)
"Aall av got mate, iz a couple of 'scabby eyes'(pies) and a bottle of 'Fanta' orange!", aa said, az he looked at me 'deflatedly' < (if there's such a word!)
