IN THE CHAMPIONSHIP THIS SEASON!
"GRANDAD---I WANT THE TEAM IN BLUE TO WIN!
"OH NO YOO DONT!!!!
Mee day started off at 'Soccer World' in the 'west end' of the Toon where grandson Jamie waz celebratin' hiz 7th birthday with a party and 'kickaroond' on one of the '5 a side' pitches in the complex before the game with hiz little friends.
Zac, one of mee othaa grandsons waz aalso there and aa waz takin' him to watch the Ipswich game with Jamie (and Jamie's dad).
Zac had been before with hiz daddy and hiz forst ever game waz last season in the 6-2 thrashin' of Norwich----a lucky mascot if ever there waz one!
"IT ANLY TAKES A MINIT TO WIN IT!"
The game kicked off and Zac aged 5, who waz dressed from heed to toe in black n white garb (hat, top, shorts and socks!) said to me: "Grandad---I want the team in BLUE to win!"
I looked incredulously at him and replied: "OH NO YOO DONT!!!"---and just az those words left my mouth, Paul Dummett crossed from the left az we bore doon on The Leazes goal and hiz cross waz flicked on by Goffran to the feet of Perez and he made ne misteak from a few yards oot, with just ONE minute on the clock! (see top pic)
|LUCKY MASCOTS ZAC (left) and BIRTHDAY BOY, JAMIE|
Despite dominatin' the half we couldn't add to the scoreline, despite the fact that a blatant penalty appeal failed when Gayle waz brought doon by Ipswich's keeper!? <(me 'finks' the ref shud heed for Specsavers---like!)
|THE TOON ON THE ATTACK (1st half)|
The 2nd half started of drably and it took until the 72nd minute to double wor advantage when Perez fired home from a Richie cross @ The Gallowgate End!
The final nail in 'Bent Nose McCarthy's coffin waz delt in the 78th minute when Perez returned the compliment and supplied Richie, who wellied the baall home to seal the victory!
