THE TOON 0 (NE WHERE NEAR) BRIGHTIN 0 *** PREMYAA LEEGUE 2017-2018

Posted '11:02am bells' Sunday 31st December 2017

"FROM 'ENTERTAINERS' TO 'NO BRAINERS'!"

Yet anothaa aaful home performance against a so caalled 'lesser team' ended scoreless az 52,000  plus watched on in 'sleep mode'!

We did have a few chances when Merino fired wide twice at The Gallowgate End and Gayle's 'cross/shot' woz well saved by Brightin keeper Ryan--but 'that woz it' for the forst half!

The 2nd period wasnt much better with the 'highlights' bein Hayden's shot which woz well saved by Ryan who tipped hiz shot roond the post and a Gayle heeder aboot 20 mins later, again well saved by the Brightin keeper!

From 'entertainers' to 'no brainers' in the space of 20 years iz hard to believe!

Both teams were az bad az each othaa az time after time possession woz  lost after 2 or 3 passes az the clock agonisingly 'ticked by' in 'slow mode'! ( no goals for 'us' in the last 3 home games and no goals for Brightin in their last 5 away games!)
(2 teams who came up from The Championship, playin' 'Championship futbaall'!)

Othaa results at the bottom went against us az well, and 3 of the teams beneath us have games in hand az we sit just 4 points off the very bottom of the table!

Thats 6 home games in a row withoot a home win and just ONE point from 18 with the 'trapdoor' just beneath us!

The last 9 years in particular have been depressin to say the least---relegation, promotion, relegation, promotion and yet anothaa relegation battle because of lack of funds for the managers, in that time!

It seems that The Fat Controller will NEVAA LORN az hopes of a takeover recede az the days pass--dont forget he wanted rid of the club by Xmas and its the new year tomorrow, with (seemingly) no progress made!

We of course travel to The P*ss Potts of Stoke tomorrow who lost 5-0 at Chelski yesterday!---anothaa 6 pointer---but will we win it?
"HAPPY NEW YEAR!?" lets hope so!
