THE TOON 2 THE BAGGIE TROOSERS 1 ***PREMYAA LEEGUE 2013-14

Posted 'high noon bells' Sunday 1st December 2013

We gan in to the month of December in a European place and above both the Manc clubs (for the time bein' at least!) after we beat The Baggie Troosers of West Brom 2-1 @ St James' Park late yesterday afternoon!

Indeed!---az we speak!---we are anly ONE point off a Champions Leegue spot and just behind 'The Liverbirds' who are in 2nd place az we find worsels in the unlikely position of fifth in 'The Premyaa'!

The game waz 'to and fro' in the orly stages az both sides tried to grab the lead and the breakthrough went in wor favour in the 36th minute, when after nice work from both Cabaye and Shola the baall fell to Gouffran who backheeded the yellow rotund object past Myhill in the WBA goal, for hiz thord home goal 'in a row' @ 'The Leazes End'!

Predicableee!---The Baggie Troosers fought back in the 2nd period and drew level in the 53rd minute when Brunt (the C***!) fired in a superb effort to give Tim Krul 'ne chance' in The Toon goal!

But much better waz to follow from us az 'oot of the blue' just fower minutes later 'The Sissoko Kid' produced a 'goal of the month' rocket shot from thorty yards oot which beat Myhill 'aall ends up' to send the crowd wild!

This torned oot to be the winnin' goal and a desorved three points for The Toon and of course wor fourth 'win in a row' in November! 

'The Geordie Times' prediction of a 50,000 crowd waz just 702 oot (49,298) but ower 100,000 have torned up to see wor last two home games against mediocre (Norwich) and average (WBA) opponents in the last week! (49,298 + 51,328 = 100,626!)

Toon team: Krul, Debuchy, Williamson, Coloccini, Santon, Tiote, Cabaye, Sissoko (Cisse 90 +5!), Gouffran, Shola Ameobi, Remy (Anita 84)

Attendance: 49,298 (1,500 Baggie Troosers)
(The highest crowd in Britain ower the weekend!)

Footnote: In the 11th minute of the game there waz a minutes applause on the 2nd anniversary of wor former number 11 Gary Speed's death.
R.I.P. GARY!
