DARBEE COONTY 0 THE TOON 2 *** EFL 2016-2017

Posted 'high noon bells' Sunday 11th September 2016
JUST MOMENTS AFTER THIS CROSS, YEDIN SEALS THE VICTORY!
(TOON IN WOR 'BUMBLE BEE' STRIP!)

"RAM RAIDERS!"

NUFC ground oot a 2-0 victory and the anly highlight of the forst half waz an absolutlee sublime <(we reeely DE na aall the posh words!) effort from 'Gooffy' Gouffran in the 20th minute to put The Toon in front at Pride Park in wot waz a dour game, to say the least! (The anly shot on target we can remember in the forst period!)
Darbee reely are a 'ramshackle mob' <(excuse the pun!) and the fact that they had anly scored ONE solitary goal aall season proved to be their downfall!
1st HALF ACTION AZ WE ATTACK THE FAR END

The 2nd half wasn't much better az we attacked the end in front of 'us' and again, just one shot on goal waz forthcomin' before Yedin sealed the victory in the very last minute of the game with a scrambled effort az the home fans made for the exits like 'droves of sheep' <(sic!)

Before the game we made for some boozers near the train station which had 'welcoming' signs on the windows sayin' 'HOME FANS ONLY'!
But az iz the case with us, we 'sniffed' oot a boozer alang the road caalled 'The Alexandra' which let away fans in!---and so (az yi de!) we stopped there for 'the duration' until it waz time to heed for the game which kicked off at '5:30 bells' (for live telly of course!)
"WILL THEY LET US IN?---YES THEY WILL!"

INSIDE THE ALEXANDRA 


THE 'SCENIC' ROUTE TO THE GROOND
(A 25 MINUTE WAALK FROM 'THE ALEX')




The win takes us up to 'altitude sickness level' in 2nd place with wor FIFTH win on the spin and aall the talk from the sceptics of relegation after wor forst 2 games ended in defeat, iz surely banished forever!

Next up iz a trip to "west Landan" on Tuesday neet when we take on 'The Rag and Bone Men' of Shepherd's Bush' at Loftus Road.
The train will again 'take the strain' az we heed southwards on the East Coast Line yet again!
