|THE SOOTH STAND VISITORS SECTION|
(View from row 26 , seat <(standin' place!) 901 !
Wot can we say aboot yet anothaa aaaful performance from NUFC?
A fluke goal won it for the home team but that shouldn't detract from anothaa defeat az wor season continues to 'implode'!
Wor top goalscorer Loic Remy waz again missin' and with 'Shola 'no goals' Ameobi' up front, we just aall knew that withoot Remy in wor side, we just cannot 'hack it'!
For the forst time 'anti Pardew chants' could be hord from the visitors section and there were aalso a couple of banners unfurled caallin' for hiz heed! <(but NOT for hiz heedbutt!)
|SOMEWHERE TO 'TRAIN' WOR THOUGHTS!|
Before the match we heeded for a different location for the pre match 'gargels' az last season we were forced to drink oot of drastic plastic pots in a boozer some 25 minutes walk from 'The Britannia Stadium!
This time it waz a 20 minute waalk on the othaa side of the groond in a boozer caalled 'The Locomotive' where we were the anly Toon fans in the bar!
The locals were friendly enough and more importantly we got to drink oot of propaa glasses for a change! <(a 'propaa pub' in Stoke!)
|THE LOCOMOTIVE 'TROPHY TRAIL!'|
Az for the match---and playin' in wor 'lucky'? Brazil strip, we again 'went through the motions' with Stoke makin' the most of wor ineptitude <(we naa aall the big words!)
Lanky 'bean pole' Peter Crouch <(hiz 'figure' reminds me of a car's dipstick!) heeded against wor post in the 9th minute, but luckily for us it rebounded oot to safety, but wor 'luck' waz aboot to run oot!
The anly goal of the game came when a intended cross from 'The P*ss Potts' striker Erik Pieters, deceived Tim Krul and the baall floated into the top corner of the net in front of the Toon fans, just before the interval!
Az we had hardly had any efforts on goal up til this point most Toon fans concluded that there waz ne way back!---and that of course proved to be the case in the 2nd half az we tried in vain to break doon the home defence!
A double substitution in the 73rd minute when (a rather tubby!) Ben Arfa and (slim Jim!) Adam Armstrong replaced the ineffective Gosling and Cisse, made absolutely ne difference az we 'plodded on aimlessly' til full time!
|"ER!"---YI'LL HAVE TI TORN YI COMPUTAA SIDEWAYS TO VIEW THIS|
AZ AA CANNIT TORN THE PICTURE THE REET WAY UP!?"
That's 4 (FOWER!) defeats in a row now, with 12 goals conceded and NONE scored!---it's just az well we are safe in 9th place in the table---isn't it just!?
