|THE TOON (in orange) ATTACK THE BLUE WIGS GOAL|
We arrived in 'Bluewigland' in good time for the boozers openin' and made for Newtown Workin' Mens Club a few hundred yards from the groond to 'tickle wor tonsils' and quensh wor thirsts, before heedin' for the tornstiles.
We'd had a canny bit to drink by '2:30 bells', which waz just az well, az a 'comotosed state' waz the best way to watch this!
An absolutleee terrible forst half performance from 'The Orangemen' saw us gan in 4-0 doon at the break to send the 4,500 travellin' faithful behind the goal into deep shock!
Two goals from Victor Moses in two minutes orly in the half, had The Toon reelin' and we never recovered from this!
Further goals from Maloney in the 36th minute and De Santo bang on half time in front of the Toon fans added to wor misery!
We played a bit better in the second period and hit the woodwork twice through Papiss Demba Cisse, but the deficit waz too much to make up anyway and this defeat severely dented wor Champions League aspirations.
With Spors and The OAPs of Chelski now breathin' doon wor neck and both playin' at home today (against Blackborn and QPR resectively) yi wud expect them to pick up max points!---"Er!"--but hang on a minute!---this IZ the premya leegue where crazy results have happened aall season!---lang may it continue today!
Wor prediction of 7,000 empty seats waz actually wrang and it waz less than half that number (3,000)
The attendance waz 'The Blue Wigs' highest of the season and waz actually 4,000 more than when they beat Man U the other week, due mainly to the fact that the home side openly sold £60 (plus VAT!) corporate tickets to Toon fans in other areas of the groond!
One to forget I'm afraid!
