THE TOON 0 THE TOFFEE NOSES 3 *** PREMYAA LEEGUE 2013-2014

Posted '9:55am bells' Wednesday 26th March 2014

Yet anothaa 'Mr Hyde' performance from us this season (wor umpteenth!) saw us crash 3-0 to European contenders Everton @ St James' Park last neet.
However! it could have been 'oh so different' if De Jong, Cisse and Gouffran hadn't missed good chances orly on @ The Leazes End! (an 'end' where were haven't scored a solitary Premyaa goal this year!)

They DIDN'T score of course and 'The Toffee Noses' took advantage az they pounded wor goal @ The Gallowgate End with a procession of corners!

They made the breakthrough when one of WOR corners 'went astray' and foond Everton's Ross Barkley in mid-field and he evaded several attempts to stop him by firing a shot past Tim Krul to put them 1-0 up at the mid-point of the half!

That's the way it stayed til the interval, but it didn't tek the visitors lang to double their lead when Lukaku hits home from 3 yards oot in front of their 2,000 or so travellin' faithful, high up in 'level 7' of 'The Leazes'!

Wor inability to finish waz evident az De Jong and Cisse struggled up front and the inevitable  thord goal came in the 'dyin embers' of the 90 minutes when Osman rifled the baall into the net az the groond emptied faster than pullin' a plug from a bath full of dorty waataa!

Shola then came on with TEN SECONDS to gan!? ---WOT! waz the point in that???
Honestly! there wernt 20,000 Toon fans left inside az the ref ended wor misery and we slunked off to 'The Newcastle Arms' to drown wor sorrows! ("ER!"---for the umpteenth time this season!)

Toon team: Krul, Yanga (Marveaux 74), Williamson, Coloccini, Sissoko, Dummett, Anita, Tiote, Gouffran (Shola Ameobi 91?), De Jong (Ben Arfa 57), Cisse

Attendance: 47, 622 (2,000 plus 'Toffee Noses')
