|THE TOON ATTACK 'THE GALLOWGATE END DURIN' THE 2nd HALF|
"NO JUSTICE @ ST JAMES'Z! "YOU F*****G OLD C**T!"
Wot can we say aboot the disallowed Cheik Tiote goal that hazzent aalready been said???
Yi'v aall probably seen the incident a thoosand times---but!--- how can yi chalk off a goal of this quality coz a player NOT interferin' with play, iz in an offside position???
After Tiote's wonder strike he ran to the Toon dugout where he waz hugged in delight az Joe Hart in 'The Blue Moonies' goal protested to the referee that Yohan Gouffran waz interferin' with play!
The linesman on the far side had KEPT HIZ FLAG DOON (ne offside!) but the ref went to him some 30 seconds later and told him to RAISE HIZ YELLOW FLAG and rule the goal OFFSIDE! (which he DID!) The worst decision a'v ever seen---EVER!
The crowd and wor manager 'I Beg Your Pardew' went mad aboot the injustice of it aall, but it waz to ne avail az the teams went in at the break to a crescendo of boos a'v never heard before!
Pardew apparently caalled Pellegrini "A F*****G OLD C**T!" (Pardew iz 52--Pellegrini iz 60!) az both camps argued az they went doon the tunnel!
'The Blue Moonies' had taken the lead after just 7 minutes through Dzeko who simply stode through wor defence to fire home @ 'The Gallowgate End' and thoughts of a 'cricket score' entered mee heed at this stage!
However!---we re-grouped and and az the game ebbed 'to and fro' we got the vital breakthrough (or so we thought!?) not lang before the interval with Tiote's strike! (TV later picked up a conversation between the ref and linesman in which 'the liner' said the baall had struck Gouffran before enterin' the net!--it obviously DIDN'T but the goal waz chalked off by the man in black!)
The 2nd half waz played oot to a chorus of boos directed at the linesmen, ref AND Joe Hart and we came close on several occasions to gettin' the equaliser!
And then deep into stoppage time 'The Blue Moonies' made the game safe when Negredo broke through and hiz shot waz saved by Tim Krul but rebounded straight back to him for a simple tap, with the goal empty!----Justice had NOT been done!
