|THE TOON (in white) ATTACK THE ANFIELD ROAD END (1st half)|
(View from row 22, seat 62)
"WE DE BELEEEVE IN MIRACLES!"
In wor preview to this game we said we needed miracles to get us oot of the relegation zone and a precious point @ Anfield after bein' 2-0 doon after half an hour waz a 'miracle' indeed!
It started off oh so badly when Sturridge put The Liverbirds 1-0 up after barely ONE MINUTE on the clock and aall looked lost, even at this stage!
We were aaful once again on the road and it waz soon 2-0 to the home side when Lallana torned on the edge of the box and hit a shot into the corner of the net, givin' Darlow ne chance in the Toon goal!---and a cricket score in their favour looked on the cards az many Toon fans heeded for the concourse for a few 'liquid lubrications' in resigned defeat!
But 'The Wally with the Brolly' and hiz 'white flag of surrender' iz NOT in charge now (thank god!)
'Rafa the Gaffa' haz a different mentality and he telt hiz players at half time that they had 'nowt to lose now' and to 'gan for the jugular'!
|THE TOON ON THE ATTACK @ THE KOP END|
This they did az we attacked the 'Kop End' and within fower minutes of the restart we pulled a goal back when a Vernon Anita cross from the right foond Papiss Cisse's heed and he nodded the baall past Mignolet in the Liverbird's goal!---'game on!?'
|CISSE HEEDS HOME (top of picture)|
Well ---YES! az we attacked the Kop and had a couple of chances before the 'miracle happened' when Jack Colback fired home from the edge of the box from a Toonsend cross in the 66th minute 'to get wor kicks' <(get it?)
|COLBACK (far left in white) SCORES WOR EQUALISER!|
This nearly lifted the roof off 'The Anfield Road End' where we were housed az Rafa's name rang oot from the travellin' faithful!---We could even have won it at the end but it wasn't to be and we had to settle for a solitary point to bring us on level torms with the SMBs and just one point behind Norwich City! (although they both have games in hand on us!)
'The Arse' can de us a massive favour today by winnin' at 'The SOS' against 'The SMB's and then beatin' The Canary Custards' of Norwich next week!
Shud this happen then the 'miracle escape' iz 'on the cards' ---We live in hope with just 3 games left! ---Palace at home next Saturday, Villa away a week later and the Sporz at home on the final day of the season!
