CHEICK TIOTE R.I.P.!

Posted '12:53pm bells' Tuesday 6th Joon 2017

It woz with disbelief that aa hord on mee truck radio az aa drove doon the M1 yesterday evenin', that wor former midfielder Cheick Tiote had collapsed and died durin' a trainin' session with hiz new club Beijing Enterprises!

Cheik's last game for The Toon woz against Birmingham in an FA Cup replay in January @ SJP, when we won 3-1
He woz then transfored to the Chinese club in February.

The Ivory Coast international made ower 150 appearences for us, scorin' one goal---and wot a goal it woz!---a screamer from ootside the box at The Gallowgate End against Arsenal in 2011 to bring the score back to 4-4 after we were 4-0 doon!---The comeback of aall comebacks!

It's hard to believe that someone who played for us just months ago iz no longer with us!---He woz just 30 years old!

R.I.P. CHEICK --you wont be forgotten by The Toon Army--that's for sure
