|THE TOON KICK OFF |
(WE ARE IN WOR NEW WHITE AND BLUE AWAY STRIP)
A much much better defensive performance than last week @ Swanzee, ensured we came away from 'The Theatre of Muppets' with an unexpected point in this goal-less draw!
Again (just like at Swanzee) it waz the home side who battered wor defence and after just 7 minutes or so 'that thorn in wor side' 'Wayne "where's mee hair"? Rooney' slotted the baall into wor net---anly for the linesman to raise hiz flag and rule it 'offside'!---It waz a close caall, but the officials are aalways reet---arnt they?
We had wor moments too and new boy Mitrovic hit the bar with a powerful heeder @ The Stretford End', but unfortunatally it bounced back into play!
Coloccini, Taylor and Krul in particular had outstandin' games for us and saved us several times from gannin behind in the 2nd period!
|NEW BOY 'FLO' THOURVIN SENDS A CORNER IN, LATE ON!|
The Toon nearly won it at the 'death' when anothaa new boy Florian Thourvin agonisingly just failed to connect to the baall with an outstretched leg from a Cisse cross! (Cisse had just come on in the 88th minute!)
Apart from Mitrovic's heeder, we had NE shots on target az far az aa can remember!? <(several pints of the local brew before the game might have sommik to de with that!)
TWO points oot of the forst NINE!---we are cruisin'!
PS: On the retorn jorney back yem the train waz engulfed in a thunder and lightnin' storm and it waz rainin' that hard waataa started drippin' through the roof az we approached York!
It didn't let up and by the time aa got yem aa waz like a drowned rat az aa waalked through mee front door drippin' wet, az the storm engulfed Tyneside! <(the joys of followin' The Toon away!)
