A TOON FAN HOLDS HIZ HEED IN FRUSTRATION
AZ A CHANCE GANS 'A BEGGIN' AT THE GALLOWGATE END!
"WOOD' YOO BELEEEEVE IT!"
Non of wor new recruits started this game with Joselu and Perez leadin the line!
It didnt take lang for the forst goal when Sporz took the lead in the 8th minute, when Vertonghen heeded against the bar and onto the goal line at The Gallowgate End!
The ref looked at hiz watch and confirmed that the baall HAD crossed the line and the goal woz given!
It didnt tek lang to find an equaliser thought, when Joselu met a Matt Richie right wing cross and glanced a heeder home at The Leazes End, to send the Toon fans wild, just 3 minutes later!
|THE TOON ATTACK THE LEAZES GOAL (1st half)|
The buzz aroond the groond didnt last lang though az Sporz retook the lead in the 18th minute when an unmarked Deli Alli had a free heeder from close in to give Debravka in The Toon goal nee chance!
We had chances in the 2nd half to equalise again, but the woodwork at The Gallowgate End denied us, when, forst, Diame rattled the left hand post with a pile-driver and thenwor new number 9 Rondon (who had come on midway throught the 2nd half) smashed a shot against the crossbar, but the baall boonced off it in the 85th minute!
In between this Kenedy, who woz clean through unexplicably ' fluffed hiz lines' and woz denied by Lloris in the Sporz goal!
(Muto made hiz debut in the 80th minute, comin' on for Perez)
The same outcome az last season's opener (0-2) but at least we scored this time!
A disappointin' result, but we were very unlucky with the 2 efforts that hit the woodwork! ( but didnt gan in!)
