THE CRYSTAL BAALLS 1 THE TOON 1 *** PREMYAA LEEGUE 2014-2015

Posted '1:43pm bells' Thorsday 12th February 2015

"ARE YOO PARDEW IN DISGUISE!?" <(ne doubt aboot it!)
THE TOON (in grey) MAKE A RARE 'SORTE' INTO THE PALACE BOX
IN THE 2nd HALF!

Aa divvint want to soond like a broken record!, but for 'Stoke' last Sunday read 'Palace' last neet!

Anothaa aaful performance where the baall waz given away continuously and kicked high up the field aimlessly--and two passes were the most we could seem to put together!
Shots on target were virtually 'NIL' and Pardew's pitiful Palace were ne better than us, in a game where we hardly crossed the half way line in the 2nd half!

Both goals were scored at 'The Holmesdale Double Decker Stand End' and the one bright spot of the game for us waz when Pappy Cisse heeded home from a reet hand cross from Janmaat just 3 minutes before the break to set us up for wor SEVENTH win 'on the boonce' @ Selhurst Park!  (Coloccini then got hit with a coin thrown by a tosser from that end, which just missed hiz eye!)
1st HALF ACTION AT 'THE DOUBLE DECKER END'!

It wasn't to be though az we huffed and puffed wor way through the 2nd period which waz virtually spent in wor own half of the pitch!
The Palace equaliser waz an accident waitin' to happen---and it did in the 73rd minute when Campbell fired home!

Late defensive substitutions by Carver to 'save the point' then happened to loud disapproval from the 3,000 or so Toon fans in the away section with chants of "Are yoo Pardew in disguise!?" az Palace went for the winner!

Indeed!---BOTH teams are in 'Pardew's mould' az of course Carver haz just carried on the same system when Pardew 'jumped ship'!

Anothaa one to confine to the dustbin I'm afraid!
'POST' MATCH ACTION!

After the game John Carver said (unbeleeevibleee!):
"That's another game unbeaten!"---"That's ONE win, THREE draws and TWO defeats now, which is NOT bad in this League!"

"Hang on just a minute though, John!"---in othaa words that's SIX points in SIX leegue games (an average of ONE point a game!)---enough to get yoo relegated in a normal season! <(ne mention of the FA Cup defeat by Lestaa City, mind! (That's ONE win in SEVEN games, with THREE draws and THREE defeats under hiz guidance since he took the reigns!)

Toon team: Krul, Janmaat, Williamson, Coloccini, Haidara, Colback, Sissoko, Cabella (Dummett 85), Perez (Riviere 91), Gouffran, Cisse (Abeid 77)

Attendance: 25,118 (3,000 or so Toon fans) *
