"A FIGHT TIL THE DEATH!"

The Toon put up a fightin' display against the Champions Leegue semi finalists last neet and came away with a point--when, before the match, nearly everybody thought that we would probably lose!

The Blue Moonies took the lead in the 15th minute when a clearly offside Aguero heeded past Darlow @ The Gallowgate End!
The linesman's didn't see it and the goal waz given az the 1,500 City fans who had bothered to come, celebrated in level 7 of The Leazes End!

However, this team iz different under Rafa The Gaffa and wor heeds didn't gan doon az we fought for an equaliser!

This happened just after the half hour mark when Moussa Sissoko foond Vernon Anita close to the box and the Dutchman fired in a low shot which hit the left hand post and rebounded into the net to send the Toon faithful into raptures!---Jamie, mee 6 year old 'lucky mascot' grandson who a'd 'kidnapped' for the occasion, hadn't seen us lose a Leegue game this season, waz beside me and he loved every minute! (This waz Jamie's 4th Leegue game of the season, which includes the 6-2 victory ower Norwich!) 

THE TOON ATTACK THE GALLOWGATE GOAL (2nd half)

We reeely played well and matched City toe for toe and we nearly pinched it at the death when sub Wijnaldum fired in a shot which waz saved by Hart in the visitors goal!

We are just a point behind the SMBs now (although we've played 1 game more) and 2 behind 4th bottom Norwich, with 4 games to gan!
Where there's life there's hope!
