THE TOON 0 WOLVERHAMPTON WANABEEZ 2 *** EFL 2016-2017

Posted '9:43am bells' Sunday 18th September 2016
A MISSED CHANCE AT THE LEAZES END AZ A TOON FAN
HOLDS HIZ HEED IN HIZ HANDS! (JUST ABOOT SUMS THE DAY UP!)

"TYPICAL TOON!"

Just when yoo are sittin' high up on a pedestal, somebody throws a rock at yoo and knocks yoo off!
We've seen it aal before of course--aa can remember way back in the 1960's when we were unbeaten at home for nearly a year when little Carlisle came to Toon for an FA Cup tie!
WE would surely hammer them!---but oh no!---we lost 1-0 in front of 56,000 to bow oot of the competition! (mee forst FA Cup defeat at home!)
And then with Kevin Keegan at the helm and flyin' high we went to Cambridge who were on a 30 odd game winless streak ---a new futbaall leegue record---BUT of course they won 1-0!
And then there waz Grimsby Toon!---a winnin' 11 game streak at the start of the season---and Grimsby win 1-0! <(a 'grim' day indeed!)  <(sic!)


There are many many more times like this and yet anothaa one came yesterday afternoon in front of a sell-oot crowd!
After demolishin' QPR 6-0 last Tuesday, we played abysmally against a Wolves side who had lost 4-0 at home to Barnsley on the same night az the QPR game!

We play them again on Tuesday neet in the Leegue Cup and the anly thing that iz certain iz that there wont be 52,000 there to witness it!

A bad day at the office with an own goal from Mbemba, a bad missteakk from Perez (to give the 2nd goal away!)  and a sendin' off for Anita---nothin' much more to say---iz there???

Toon team: (who didn't torn up!) Sels, Anita, Dummett, Shelvey, Lascelles, Mbemba, Hayden (Mitrovic 63), Diame, Gayle, Perez, Richie (Atsu 63)

Attendance: 52,117 (3,200 'Wanabeez')  *
