|THE PICTURE ISNT BLURRED---IT'S 'CHUCKIN IT DOON'!|
"WE TOLD YOO SO!"
We said in wor run up to this match that NUFC were capable of 'shootin worsels in the foot' and that's exactly wot happened @ SJP yesterday evenin' in front of the live telly cameras! (see article below!)
Against a poor Villa team we dominated the forst half az torrential rain started pourin doon from the heavens!
The breakthrough came in the 38th minute when the baall fell nicely to 'Fab' Coloccini a few yards oot and hiz shot waz deflected in to give us a desorved half time lead @ The Gallowgate End!
Aa took mee 6 year old grandson Jamie to the match az he waz 'a lucky mascot' the last time he came, when we beat Norwich 6-2 a couple of months ago!
The rain waz faallin that hard the pitch waz gettin' waterlogged and aa had visions of the game havin to be abandoned because of this, but luckily it abated in the 2nd half az we went 'for the jugular'!
The tornin point came on the hour mark, when (somehow!) a point blank heeder from De Jong on the far post @ The Leazes End went wide, when it waz so much easier to score!---a goal that would have sealed victory!
However-this gave wor visitors some confidence and they went for an equaliser straight away--just az Perez had came on for the dejected De Jong!---Seconds after the substitution, wor visitors raced away up the pitch, where the baall foond Villa's Gordon Awey, who torned quickly on the edge of the Gallowgate box to hit an unstoppable shot past Rob Elliot in The Toon goal--a contender for 'goal of the month' undoubtedly!
From wot shud have been 2-0 up to 1-1 in the space of 2 minutes waz a 'gut wrencher' for certain!
Perez then missed a glorious chance at the very end to claim the 3 points when he blasted high ower the bar!
'The Hazbeenz' had had a couple of chances to win the game az well, but it ended 'aall square and we had to settle for a solitary point!
At least 'Jamie' hadn't seen us lose!
|SPOT THE DIFFERENCE BETWEEN THIS AND THE TOP PIC!?|
ITS NEAR THE END OF THE GAME AND THE RAIN HAZ EASED OFF
AZ WE ATTACK THE LEAZES GOAL!
Shud they win, then we will be in the bottom 3 again, come Xmas Day!
