|1st HALF ACTION AZ THE TOON ATTACK THE LEAZES GOAL|
"IT'S A 'SIX'!"
On Friday in 'The Geordie Times' (see article below!) we said that it waz McClaren's 'last throw of the dice' and would we get a 'six' or a 'one'--and 'SIX' it waz!---Not goals, but the 1-0 win and 3 points gained dragged us oot of the relegation zone at the expense of Norwich who lost @ Villa!
We started off well and went for the Leazes goal time and time again, with several chances 'gannin a beggin' before Tiote broke the deadlock with a lang range effort in the 30th minute---or so we thought? az we celebrated in the seats----but horror upon horror! Mason the ref went to consult hiz linesman and the goal waz chalked off az Mitrovic, who waz in an offside position, waz deemed to have blocked the sightlines of the West Brom goalie!
It waz aall smiles again though just 2 minutes later when a superb through baall from Jonjo Shelvey foond Mitrovic and he fired a fantastic shot into the back of the net!----Aa looked at the linesman on the far side, but he kept hiz flag doon this time and the goal stood!
We totally dominated this game and there were several chances to increase wor lead in the 2nd half --- Toonsend hit the post for example, but we couldn't find a 2nd goal and nearly paid the price at the end when 'Toon target' in the transfor window, Berahino, waz put through near the end but thankfully couldn't connect to a pass and the game waz won!
|2nd HALF ACTION @ THE GALLOWGATE END|
Every player played hiz part but Shelvey in particular waz ootstandin' with several pin-point passes in this totally one sided game!---If only we could play West Brom at home every week!---"IF ONLY!"
Toon team: Elliot, Janmaat, Taylor, Coloccini, Aarons, Toonsend (Perez 88), Shelvey (Saivet 90), Tiote, Sissoko, Wijnaldum, Mitrovic
50,152 (700 or so Baggie Troosers in level 7 of The Leazes End singin' (amongst othaa things) "Sh*t football my lord--sh*t football!" az their 'Tramp in a Tracksuit' manager (Pulis) looked on forlornly!
PS: looked less than 50,000 to us? *
