BLACKBORN 'VENKY CHICKEN' ROVAAZ 1 THE TOON 0 *** EFL 2016-2017

Posted 'high noon bells' Tuesday 3rd January 2017
"GOAL!"---OH NO IT IZNT! (GAYLE WAZ OFFSIDE!)

"ROUGH SEAS AHEED!"
HMS NEWCASTLE!

Anybody who thought that it would be 'plain sailin' in wor quest for automatic promotion back to the Premyaa Leegue had better 'fink again'!
A game we should have easily won against a team in the relegation places, waz lost with a stupid tackle by Colback on the edge of the Rovaaz box late on---which the home side tucked away past the 'waall'? and Karl Darlow, into wor goal!
THE TOON (in black and gold) KICK OFF

A bar strike in the forst half (by Diame), numerous shots (many off target!) and TWO disallowed goals for us (1 offside, 1 'alleged handbaall'--Gayle and Clark)) in the 2nd period, summed up wor day az the near 7,000 travellin' fans suffered a new years hangower!---(for the 2nd time in 2 days!)
View from row 6 top tier Darwin End

The reality iz that we MUST strengthen wor squad in the transfor window or else we can say "goodbye" to promotion back to the big time---especially az AALL wor main rivals won to leapfrog and close the gap on us--with games in hand!

Perez haz lost the will---Colback iznt good enough (wot WAZ he thinkin' with that ridiculous tackle?) and Hayden iz like 'a bridge over troubled waters' (Haydon Bridge iz a village that straddles the River South Tyne in rural Northumberland---GET IT?) 

NOT such a happy new year after aall!
Toon team: Darlow, Anita (Murphy 87), Lascelles, Clark, Dummett, Richie, Hayden, Colback (Perez 76), Gouffran (Atsu 85), Diame, Gayle
