|THE TOON ATTACK THE LEAZES GOAL (1st half)|
"WOTFAAD GAP!" (7 points!)
The Geordie Times reeely hates writin reports like this, but write them we must!
Without doubt this woz wor worst performance for a lang, lang time az we pressed the 'self destruct button'!
It wasnt that Wotfaad were that good, but they were far too good for us, az we played with ne shape and ne defence in this one sided game.
They started off well az they attacked the Gallowgate goal az 'we' couldn't get oot of forst gear!
They went 1-0 up in the 19th minute when Hughes shot into the corner of the net!
They had othaa gilt edged chances to increase their lead az wor 'powder puff' attack of Joselu and Gayle failed to dent the Wotfaad defence, despite at least 3 good chances! (If anly we had De Bruyne or Lukaku in wor team!)
And then the 'killer goal' bang on half time (just like at Moan U last week!) when Yedlin deflected the baall into hiz own net from a cross shot!
We couldn't see anyway back after this and so it proved in the 62nd minute when Gray added a 3rd at The Leazes End in front of their 2,000 plus travellin support high up in 'the gods'!
|'BLURRED ACTION' AZ WE ATTACK THE GALLOWGATE GOAL!|
The introduction of Merino and 'Mitro' in the 69th minute made ne difference az this woz too little too late!
10 minutes from the end Toon fans started to leave in their droves az the Wotfaad fans celebrated their FOURTH win in a row ower us and inflicted 'wor' FOURTH defeat in a row az we dropped to 13th place in the table az Wotfaad moved 7 points clear of us in 8th place!
(We WILL slip even forthaa doon the table az 2 teams below us play each othaa this afternoon, no matter the score! (Sooothamptin v Evaatin)
We are nuw just FOUR points above the drop zone with some very tough games comin' up in December!
Meeenwhile, we are off to The Baggie Troosers of West Brom on Tuesday neet for yet anothaa 'must win game' against this (so far!)managerless team, after 'The Tramp in a Tracksuit' (Tony Pulis) got the 'bullet' last week! (they are a point above the drop zone!)
