Forst of aall can aa just say 'congratulations' to Dunston UTS who won the FA Vase yesterday @ Wembley by beatin' West Auckland 2-0 thanx to goals from Steve 'Bully' Bull to bring the silverware back to Tyneside!
Az mentioned previously, we would have been there had the two games not clashed---(but yi cannit be in two places at the same time---can yi?)
"Well done 'The Bad Blue Boys'!"

TAKES A CORNER @ THE PARK END
Secondly!---'it just wasn't to be' for 'The Toon' though, and in the end, the 3-1 defeat against The Toffee Noses @ Goodison made ne difference to the premya table anyway, even if we'd won, az both The Arse and Spors won their games to claim thord and fourth places respectively.
So Europa League futbaall it iz for the 'black 'n' whites' next season!
Most of wor pre match 'garglin' took place in the Fountains Abbey which iz aboot a ten minute waalk from the groond, where we met a few Toffee Noses who we naa, namely Joanne and Mark, who telt us that the one thing they wanted above aall waz to win and finish above The Liverbirds in the table! (a bad omen for us or wot!?)
Yoo could see from the start of the game that we just wernt 'up for it' az we ran oot in wor new 'Winos' away strip and Pienaar opened the scorin' for the home side on the qwaata of an hour mark with a shot that hit Mike Williamson on the back and the baall spun past the stranded Tim Krul and into the net!
Jelavic doubled the home sides lead in the 27th minute, when, after he had handled just moments orlier (unbeseen by the ref of course!) he fired past Krul and wor Champions League aspirations were startin' to evaporate.
Meeenwhile!---text messages from Wembley telt us that Dunston were beatin' West Auckland 1-0 in the Vase final!
The thord and 'killer goal' came at the mid point in the 2nd half when Heitinga heeded home at The Gladys Street End.
We pulled one back soon after with an own goal from Hibbert, but it was aall ower by then.
Another two text messages from Wembley telt us that Dunston had won the FA Vase 2-0, so at least it wasn't aall bad news! (special thanx to 'Davy the Silver Fox' and 'Shaz the Postie' for keepin' us updated!)
News waz comin' through from the Championship decider games az well and cheers went up from the Evertonian sections when they hord that Man City were gettin' beat? (aalways thought they hated Man U more??) Of course we aall naa 'wot happened next', az this crazy season drew to a close!
Next stop for The Toon!?----The Amsterdam Arena! (where the Europa League final iz bein' held next season!)
