Posted '10 am bells' Wed 16th Feb
Wor second away game in fower days waz played last neet at St Andrews in Brummieland.

A 'sprited' and 'gutsy' performance from both 'The Toon' and 'The Toon Army' started with  just 90 seconds on the clock, when Peter Lovenkrands guided the baall home from a 'Spiderman' cross at the far end from us in the heavy rain, before many of wor fans had even taken up their standin' places. (we neva! sit doon at away games!) 

Then at the start of the 2nd half we doubled wor lead in front of the 3,000 plus Toon fans when Leon Best heeded home from another 'Spiderman' cross to send both the away end and 'The Egyptian Branch' in Cairo wild with delight (see below!)
Attendance: 28,270 (Brum's highest of the season) 
Footnote: amazingly we have won more away games (5) than Premership leaders Man U (3!) and have taken 18 points away from home compared to their 17!---(we are now 9th in the table)

The Toon resorves were aalso in action last neet when they beat The Terriers of Bedlington 2-0 in The Northumberland Senior Cup at 'Blue Flames' Benton, with both wor goals comin' in the second period from Edmundsson and Knight in front of just 172 hardy souls.

The Juniors lost 1-0 last neet in the 5th roond of the FA Youth Cup away to Man U @ Altrincham.
The deadlock was broken in the 64th minute when the weirdly named Ravel Morrison scored for 'the mancs' of Salford <(Accordin' to Man City fans!) 
I wasnt there as a'v 'got the T shirt' for this groond iz well!---however!---there were at least FIVE! 'mad-sad groundhoppers' who I know of, who made the trip ower the Pennines for 'this one' to 'represent us'!? ---------Attendance:657 (number of Toon fans---at least 5!))

Next archive report will now be on Friday
