|"NO!"---"IT'S NOT THE NORTH SEA!"--"IT'S THE OUTSKIRTS OF YORK!"|
("THERE'S A FARMHOOSE AND VILLAGE UNDER THERE!")---
"AN INSULT TO WOR INTELLIGENCE!"
After battlin' through the floods of York on the '7:25 bells' train to New Street, Bormingham, *("Whey!", hardly 'battlin' through the floods---more like watchin' York drown az we passed by on the train with wor feet up, drinkin' cans of 'easy rider', wonderin' just how those affected were copin'!)
We expected at the very least a 'battlin' display from The Toon az well, after aall the 'hype' surroundin' the 'injustice' of wor defeat at home to Everton just 2 days before on Boxin' Day (see that match report forthaa doon the page!)
*(PS: Honestly, wor hearts gan oot to aall the people who have been affected by the terrible floods--it must be heartbreakin' to be flooded time and time again!)
Wot we got from NUFC waz the usual garbage that we have been so used to this year, az we gave in meekly to a poor WBA side who bombarded wor goal in the forst half with wave after wave of shots and corners to keep wor rooky goalie Karl Darlow very busy (Rob Elliot had felt unwell before the game and Darlow waz hoyed into the fray!)
Honestly!---it would have been more excitin' watchin' paint dry on 'wor part' az we hardly ventured up the field and we were (very!)glad to see the half time break!
|A 'VERY' RARE ATTACK ---COLOCCINI (dark strip on left) |
HITS THE POST IN FRONT OF THE TOON FANS!
Both Dummett and Coloccini hit the woodwork in the 2nd half and Mitrovic seemed to be pulled back az he waz aboot to take a shot in front of the Toon faithful behind the goal, but penalty claims were waved away by the ref ---but they waz the anly 'highlights' of this half for 'us' az we continually gave the baall away, shyed oot from tackles and played across the field and backwards!--instead of gannin forward! <(ie: A 'complete' shambles!)
The killer blow came just after the Mitrovic incident, when Darlow failed to hold a Darren Fletcher downward heeder and it squeezed underneath him and into the net for the anly goal of the game!
'The Wally withoot the Brolly' iz unbelievable!---claimin' that we in fact "played ever so well!"--- matched West Brom in every department and didn't deserve to lose---which game waz he watchin', like????
Does he think we are so stupid and gullible that we will believe anything that he says???----hiz ridiculous comments are an insult to wor intelligence and have NOT gone doon well with the Toon fans!
The match stats tell a very different story to McClaren's however!
The Baggie Troosers had a total of 22 shots of which 5 were on target and 18 corners, compared to 'wor' 7 shots, (nearly aall weak efforts!) of which anly TWO were on target (1 in each half!) and 6 corners!
We aalso committed twice az many fouls az them (14 to 7), many of them needless when we lost possession!
The Leegue table doesn't lie, Steve and we gan into the new year 3rd bottom with a pathetic 17 points from 19 games at the halfway point of the season---Indeed, with just SEVEN wins oot of a possible THORTY EIGHT games played this calendar year, it beats the previous worst in livin' memory, which waz NINE wins in 1961 (relegated 1960-1961) and NINE wins in 2008 (relegated 2008-2009!)
|Alan Shearer totally contradicts wot McClaren had just said moments before |
on Match Of The Day
Next up iz 'The Arse' away on Saturday---a groond where we have conceded 14 goals in wor last 3 visits!-----Arsene Wenger must be rubbin' hiz hands!
