THE TOON 1 'UDDERSFIELD TOON 2 *** EFL 2016-2017

Posted 'high noon bells' Sunday 14th August 2016
THE TOON PLAYERS IN A HUDDLE JUST BEFORE THE KICK OFF!
(It didn't de us much good though!)

"TALES OF THE UNEXPECTED!"

Wor 2nd game of the season and 2nd defeat against a very average 'uddersfield side who we shud have beaten comfortably.
52,000 plus were here to witness this horror show (includin' mee grandson Jamie aged 6, who iz now a fully fledged season ticket holder!) <(it's aall my fault of course!!!) >>>>>>>>>>>>>>

Quite simply in the forst half we were terrible, givin' the baall away and losin' possession  on many occasions and the killer blow came in stoppage time of the half when wor visitors stabbed the baall into the net at The Gallowgate End!
A TOON FAN HOLDS HIZ HEED IN HIZ HANDS AZ WE MISS
A GREAT CHANCE AT THE LEAZES END (1st half)

The 2nd half waz a bit better az we attacked the 'uddersfield goal and finally we made a breakthrough when on the hour mark a hand-baall in the box gave us a penalty which Dwight Gayle hit straight at their keeper, but luckily for him it rebounded straight to hiz bonce and he heeded into the net to lift the roof off the stadium---more in relief than hope!

We would surely gan on to win now?---but NO!---a through baall to an unmarked Jack Payne who ran towards the Leazes End goal sealed it for wor visitors in the 82nd minute az the 3,200 Yorkshiremen in level 7 of that end went wild with delight az we looked on in despair!

A sceptic alang from me shouted that LEEGUE 1 waz now beckonin'!!!!---WOT!!! after just TWO games????---Ye of little faith!!!!
"We weren't expecting this kind of performance!", Rafa said after the match---tooo true mate!

Of course we MUST improve on this showin' and wor home game against 'The Biscuitmen of Readin' on Wednesday now takes on more significance az the pressure cooker starts to build!

Attendance: 52,079 (3,200 'uddersfield fans)
