"JACK'S THE LAD!"
We said yesterday that we thought the game would probably be a bore draw and that's exactleee wot we didn't get! <(yet again 'The Geordie Times' gets it aall wrang!)
The sequence of events were az follows:
5th minute: Disaster strikes az The Toffee Noses gan ahead through Kone, who shoots home from inside the 6 yard box @ The Gallowgate End!
33rd minute: Cisse clobbers Colman with hiz elbow after he iz held back---luckily the officials missed it!
|THE TOON ATTACK THE LEAZES GOAL (1st half)|
37th minute: Tiote's cross iz pulled back by Williamson and it faalls nicely for Cisse who rifles the baall into the net for the equaliser!
53rd minute: Tiote finds Perez inside the box and the Spaniard tuck a neeet shot just inside the post to put The Toon 2-1 up!
70th minute: Everton's Ross Barkley drops a clanger and gives the baall straight to 'Ginger Jack' Colback and he gleefully excepts hiz belated Xmas present and knocks the baall underneath Robles in the visitors goal! He celebrates hiz FORST EVER GOAL for us wildly, in front of The Gallowgate End!

82nd minute: We try to shoot worsels in the foot by allowin' Merallas through the middle and he chips Alnwick to bring the game back to 3-2 az the 3,000 Toffee Noses celebrate high up behind The Leazes goal!
82nd to 95th minutes: A nailbitin' last few minutes then follows and we are very unfortunate not to gan 4-2 up when Perez hits the post from the edge of the area deep into injury time!---the baall rebounds to Riviere but he slices the baall wide!
We 'haad on' to claim the valuable 3 points and prove 'The Geordie Times' wrang! <(we are so pleezed we were wrang!---beleeeve yoo me!) to end this sad and tragic year on a 'high'!
