|1st half action az The Toon attack 'The Kop End'|
(We are in the dark strip)
Pre-season friendlies are notoriously bad to judge just wot will happen when the real action starts, but we cannit help feel that after yet another lack-lustre display yesterday dinnaatime in rainy Sheffield against 3rd tier opposition, that it will another hard season aheed!
We hit the bar orly on through Cisse, but then after this iz waz aall Sheff U az they had several chances to take the lead with a number of glarin' misses in front of the 3,000 Toon fans packed behind that goal!
However!---it waz 'us' who took the lead in the 40th minute when new boy Ginio Wijnaldum fired in a re-bound from 20 yards oot to give us an undeserved lead!
Sheff U soon levelled things orly in the 2nd half when McNulty had the easy task of beatin' Krul in The Toon goal after he was put clean through!
|2nd half action in front of The Toon fans|
De Jong restored wor lead with 10 mins to gan when he flicked the baall into the net from a corner by Colback to send 'the faithful' wild with delight behind the goal!
Again, the home side came back az the rain bleached doon from the grey skies, when Freeman vollied an unstoppable shot past Krul with barly 2 mins left on the clock!---and that's the way it ended!
Toon team: Krul, Janmaat, Williamson, Steve Taylor (Lascelles 69), Haidera, Anita (Obertan 59), Colback (Gouffran 88), Sissoko (Abeid 79), Wijnaldum (De Jong 73), Perez (Aarons 46), Cisse (Armstrong 79)
