"NE WHERE NEAR" BRIGHTON 1 THE TOON 0 *** PREMYAA LEEGUE 2017-2018
Posted from 'high noon bells' onwards Munday 25th September 2017
NICE STADIUM!---PITY ITS IN THE WRANG PLACE, MILES FROM BRIGHTON!
WE were brought back doon to orth with a bump at The AMEX on Sunday in a game we didn't deserve to lose!
When yoo are watchin' the match from behind the goal, yoo miss incidents that are picked up on the telly and 2 of those things were that there woz a clear foul before their goal and that their goalscorer Tomer Hemed should have been sent off az he stamped on Yedlin in the dyin embers of the game (missed by the officials AND 'us')
WE did have chances to score but couldn't take them, with Joselu gannin close and super sub Shelvey hittin the post from a corner near the end! There were aalso chances for anothaa sub Dwight Gayle but he couldn't put them away!
That's 3 wins and 3 defeats from wor forst 6 games back in 'The Premyaa', and we drop 5 places in the table to 9th position!
More worryinglee 2 of those defeats are against fellow 'weaker' promoted sides ('uddersfield iz the othaa one)
The jorney back to Tyneside woz horrendous, havin to endure the the ride back to Brighton station shoehorned into one of the train carriages like sardines from Falmer and then the train back to London Bridge which woz packed to the rafters az well!
DIVVINT DRINK HERE!----UNLESS YOO ARE VERY RICH!
It woz then 2 tube rides back to King's Cross before catchin a quick 'lubrication' at £5.50 a pint in The Fellow bar near the station, before boardin the '10 bells' train back to The Toon---which didn't arrive back til '2 bells' in the mornin'!
And we've got to de the same in a fortneets time---when we heed for Sooothampton for yet anothaa Sunday away day (wor 4th in 4 away games so far!)
Who would be a Toon fan?
PS: Aa dragged me lifeless body oot of bed at '11 15am bells' this mornin' and told wor lass that aa woz 'knackered'! I didn't get any sympathy and she said: "Yoo divvint have to gan--do yoo?" She's WRANG of course---"Oh yes I DO!"
