THE TOON 3 VAN UNITED 3 *** PREMYAA LEEGUE 2015-2016

Posted '12:22pm bells' Wednesday 13th January 2016
THE TOON ATTACK THE LEAZES GOAL (1st half)


"IZ THIS THE TORNIN' POINT AT LAST!?"

We said in wor pre match build up that "Anythin' could happen!" az this IZ NUFC---and it DID INDEED!

Twice the Manc Muppeteers took the lead and twice we came back to deny them!

It didn't look 'ower clever' in the forst half az Van Gaal's Mob attacked the Gallowgate goal and went 1-0 up in the 8th minute through a Rooney penalty, after Mbemba waz harshly judged to have handled the baall in the box!---Janmaat then had a 'ligitimate' penalty appeal torned doon at The Leazes End before Lingard fired the visitors into a 2-0 lead in the 38th minute and aall looked lost!

Just after Man U's 2nd goal a banner waz unfurled @ The Gallowgate End which read
'Sports Direct Shame', in reference to the way workers are treated by the company!

Wijnaldum gave us hope just before the interval when volleeed home from a Mitrovic pass to half the deficit!

Just before the mid-point of the 2nd half we were back on level torms when Mitrovic waz pulled to the groond by Smalling and the ref pointed straight to the spot for wor forst penalty in ower a year!

Mitrovic grabbed the baall and wellied it into the net to send the
46,000 plus Toon fans in the crowd wild with delight!

2nd HALF ACTION AZ THE TOON ATTACK THE GALLOWGATE GOAL

We went for the win after that but couldn't make the breakthrough and then disaster struck again when that 'thorn in wor side' Wayne Rooney hit an unstoppable shot into the roof of the Leazes net to send the 3,000 muppets into ecstasy az they mocked Alan Shearer, caallin' him "A sad Geordie b*stard!' -with a sh*t football team!"

Aall looked lost at this point! (10 mins left!)

Paul Dummett however, dumfounded them (and us!) in the very last minute of the game with a belter of a shot to beat De Gea in the Manc Muppets goal to lift the roof off the stadium and claim an unlikely precious point in the progress!

"Chants of " SHEARER!-SHEARER!" then rang oot from the home contingent az 'The 3,000 Muppeteers' (in tears!) sat in deathly silence in the away end!

Is THIS the tornin' point of wor season at last?--OR anothaa 'false dawn'?----we shall soon find oot on Saturday when we face 'The Jellied Eels Mob' at SJP, where wor new signings will (hopefully!) be on show!

Attendance: 49,673 (3,000 very quiet Muppets at the end!) *
