THE BORNLEY HILLBILLIES 1 THE TOON 0 *** PREMYAA LEEGUE 2017-2018

Posted 'high noon bells' Tuesday 31st October 2017
 THE TOON ATTACK THE 'FISHWICK END' WHERE WE WERE HOUSED (1st half)
(View from row 'P')

"TELL ME WHY?---I DONT LIKE MUNDAYS!"

Anothaa away game against one of the 'so caalled' lesser teams and anothaa 1-0 defeat, when we shud have got sommik oot of the game!
Palace goal here Merino woz missin' with a back injury and with ne punch up front we couldn't break doon the Bornley defence az sideways pass after sideways pass left us in 'no mans land' in midfield for most of the game!
ACTION AT THE FAR END (2nd half)



One goal would decide this game we thought and it came from the home side in the 75th minute when a missteak by Perez near the centre circle resulted in a shot which woz parried by Elliot in The Toon goal, aanly for the rebound to fall nicely to the feet of Hendric who woz 2 yards oot and he hit a shot into the roof of the net, which your great-granny could have scored!

1-0 to 'The Hillbillies' az we desperatleee tried to get the equaliser and late on Hayden and Manquillo went very close to findin' the net but instead fooond the advertisin' hoardings behind the far goal and the game woz lost! (the 14th time in a row that we have failed to win an away game played on a Munday!)

A 'wake up caall' if ever there woz one az we slid 3 places doon the table to 9th after this and the othaa weekend results!

Up til now we haven't played ANY of the 'so caalled' 'big six' away from home, but will do in the next couple of months!

9th place might soond OK, but with tough games against Moan U, Chelski and 'The Arse' to play away soon, we NEED the 3 points against Bornemoooth at SJP next Saturday, for certain!

Toon team: Elliot, Manquillo, Lejeune,Yedlin, Diame (Gayle 83), Shelvey, Richie (Murphy 79), Atsu, Perez (Hayden 76), Joselu

Attendance: 21,031 (2,500 Toon fans facin' a 'reality check'!)
