|1st HALF *** THE TOON ATTACK THE FAR GOAL|
"SELF INFLICTED WOUNDS FROM WOR OWN 'FANS?'!"
The lang jorney to Norfolk started off @ '5:59 am bells' precisely @ 'The Central' and we arrived in Norwich some 4 and a half hours later (via Peterborough!)
'The Murderers Arms' waz wor forst (and anly!) port o call in the city centre for the pre match 'gargels' and 'nosebags' before heedin' for Carrow Road some 4 hours later---a 15 minute walk away!
|THE MURDERERS---"SPOT THE PLONKY!"|
We were simply awful in the forst half and just az injury time approached the baall went into the away end in front of us az Norwich were award a free kick deep into wor half!
The fools in front of us were so thick and they wouldn't give them the baall back!--Considerin' that a 0-0 draw waz much better for the home side than us, this waz shear stupidity beyond belief from wor own lot! < (And aa thought that 'April Fools Day' waz the day before?)
When eventually they did get it back after aboot 90 seconds, wor defence fell asleep and allowed Klose a free heeder which he sent past Darlow in The Toon goal!---'self inflicted wounds' would be the understatement of the year!--HT 1-0 to The Canary Custards!
To cut a lang story short Mitrovic waz finally introduced in the 62nd minute and just 9 minutes later he scored after a Toonsend cross foond hiz heed and he beat the home keeper ne ends to level the contest!
Az The Toon fans were still celebratin' the goal, anothaa 'self inflicted wound' happened when wor defence failed to clear their lines and Mbokani welled the baall underneath Darlow's body to regain the lead!
Again The Toon came back when a hand baall in the penalty box resulted in a rare penalty kick for us and Mitrovic cooly despatched the shot into the bottom right hand corner of the net with just 4 minutes left on the clock ---and we thought at least a point iz better than nowt az we celebrated wildly again!
|2nd HALF ACTION|
And then the final 'self inflicted wound'---when again we failed to clear wor lines and Olssen put 'the dagger through wor hearts' deep into stoppage time with the killer goal in the 93 minute! (but waz it 'hand baall'?) ---wor NINTH defeat in a row 'on the road'! (inc FA Cup!)
The result meenz that we are now SIX points from safety with an inferior goal difference with just SEVEN games left!
Trip to Burton and Rotherham next season look an absolute certainty now!-----UNLESS! we can 'de a Lestaa'---very unlikeleee I'm afraid!
