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

Posted '1:20pm bells' Munday 1st February 2018

"Justice woz NOT done!"

The sequence of events were az follows!

17th minute: After bein on top for the forst period of the forst half, new boy Kenedy hit a powerful 20yard shot which hit the post at The Gallowgate End!
Atsu woz at hand to hit the rebound into the net, but instead hit it straight at Pope Nicholas (Nicholas Pope!) in the Bornley goal!
A great chance wasted!
THE TOON ATTACK THE GALLOWGATE END (1st half)

34th minute: 'President' Kenedy who woz havin a great debut iz pulled doon on the edge of the box and the ref points straight to the spot!
To everyones dismay Joselu, who woz havin an indifferent game stepped up to take it, but hit a weak effort to the right of Pope who palmed it away for a corner!
Anothaa great chance wasted!
ACTION AT THE LEAZES END (2nd half)

65th minute: We were on the front foot again in the 2nd period and a great corner swung in by Kenedy from the Leazes/East Stand corner foond Lascelles who sent a powerful heeder into the back of the net to open the scorin' for 'us'!

75th minute: Joselu had a great chance to seal the points when he woz put through by Murphy, but hiz shot went agonisingly past the far post, when it looked easier to score!!!
YET anothaa great chance wasted!!!

And then 'the killer' goal!
85th minute: The ref gave a corner after Darlow palmed the baall away
The corner foond a Bornley player but hiz effort went ower the bar az Darlow stretched to save it---He MISSED it but the ref  claimed that Darlow HAD touched the baall ower the bar, but he clearly HADNT!

The resultin' 2nd corner foond the heed of Bornley's Vokes and he sent hiz effort goalwards---Darlow palmed the baall twice but woz unable to stop it gannin into the back of the net!
It woz agony!---a corner that wasn't had brung wor visitors back from the brink of defeat!
(I watched the highlights of the game 'later on' and whoever edited it had shown the forst corner---and then the goal!----but like aa say, it woz the disputed 2nd corner that resulted in the goal that WASNT shown for some reason! (BBC bias again?)


Just how we didnt win this game easily iz a mystery to us all!
In a game dominated by NUFC we just couldn't finish them off and had to settle for a point instead, to extend wor winless home games to EIGHT in the Premyaa Leegue!
Both Kenedy and Diame had outstandin' games and hopefully this and wor new 'loanee signings' will help hold us in good stead for the 13 remainin games!

The draw took us up to 14th place in the table---but don't be fooled az we are anly ONE point off the bottom 3!---it's THAT tight! 
ITS A BIT BLURRED, BUT THIS IZ A MESSAGE
TO WOR OWNER FROM THE GALLOWGATE FAITHFUL!
