THE TOON ATTACK THE PARK END (2nd half)

"BACK DOON TO ORTH WITH A BUMP!"

Most of this game woz aboot the Toon fans slaggin off the mackems on their 2nd successive relegation at the weekend and goadin' Evaatin's smb goalie jordan pickford who used to play for them and iz a mackem born and bred!

Chants of: "Your just a sad mackem bustard!", "Stayin up---gannin doon!" and "You laughed at us when we went down!--but who the f*** iz laughin' now!", reverbirated aroond Goodison Park, but unfortunataly we went back to the dark days in late 2017 and put in an inept performance on the pitch!
ACTION AT THE GLADYS STREET END (1st half)

If yoo saw the match on SKY and were a 'neutral', yoo would have went for the remote control and switched the telly off, az this game woz terrible with passes gannin astray and balls lost aplenty!

The anly goal of the game came in the 53rd minute when Evaatin took the lead through Theo Walcott who hammered an unstoppable right foot drive into the roof of wor net, givin Toon goalie Debravka ne chance!

Thiz woz one of anly 2 shots from the home side with 'us' missin a great chance to equalise late on through Dwight Gayle who blazed hiz effort ower the bar!

A torned doon penalty appeal and a scramble on the home sides goal line in the very last minute failed to get us an equaliser and the game woz lost!

On the final whistle, pickford gave hand gestures to the Toon fans for the 'stick' he endured for the full 90 minutes, but it woz 'a hollow victory' for him, az hiz beloved team wont be comin to Evaatin next season---it will be Exeter or Wycombe instead!
And trips to Arsenal, Man City and Liverpool just a year ago, will be replaced by trips to Accrington Stanley, Fleetwood Town and 'good old' Gillingham (who can forget them, when Tony Cascarino put them in the 3rd Division in 1987!)

Happy days!---even in defeat!😊

PS: We are still not mathmatically safe, but Soothampton in 18th place MUST win their last 4 games and NUFC MUST lose wor last 4, for them to catch us! (highly improbable!)
Both West Brom and Stoke can't catch us!

Toon team: Dubravka, Yedlin, Lascelles, Lejeune, Dummett, Ritchie (Murphy 79), Diame, Shelvey (Merino 83), Kenedy, Perez, Slimani (Gayle 63)

Attendance: 39,061 (3,000 Toon fans)
