|BAGGIES FANS IN LEVEL 7---(TOP OF PICTURE)|
"WATCH OOT BELOW!"
This waz another lack lustre performance from The Toon, but we won it with a fluke goal deep deep into stoppage time @ the end of the match when a Sammy Ameobi shot hit Cisse's back and the baall reboonded into the net leavin' 'The Baggie Troosers' keeper stranded az we celebrated a most unexpected victory!
It waz obvious from the word 'go' that this would be a dour match az we couldn't seem to string two passes together with the visitors pushin' us back at every instant.
Against the run of play Demba Ba opened the scorin' for us in the 35th minute when he struck a sweet volley into the net @ 'The Leazes End' from a Shola Ameobi heeded 'flick on' and just after this Tim Krul in the Toon goal made two ootstandin' saves to deny the visitors and we were very lucky to gan in one-nowt up at the interval!
The inevitable equaliser however came in the 55th minute when Lukaku, who had lost his marker, had the easy chance of heedin' home past Tim Krul!
It waz 'backs to the waall' after this and the away side pressed for the winner but they couldn't get past 'Timmy' again.
And then that fluke equaliser!!!--If I waz a WBA fan a'd have been caallin' 'The Samaritans', tearin' mee hair oot and hoyin' meesel ower the balcony of 'The Leazes End' at the final whistle!!!
Toon team: Krul, Simpson (Cisse 61), Williamson, Coloccini, Santon, Ben Arfa, Perch, Cabaye, Gutierrez, Shola Ameobi (Obertan 61), Ba (Sammy Ameobi 73)
Attendance: 49,731 (1,400 suicidal 'Baggie Troosers' in level 7 of 'The Leazes'!)
(we predicted a crowd of between 47,000 to 48,000 and that WBA would bring 1,500 fans!)---so we wornt TOOO far oot!
Footnote: After the match we heeded for 'The Newcastle Arms' for a bit of post match 'tonsil ticklin', where we bumped into two Baggies fans sportin' their home strip. They were husband and wife and she telt us that she used to support 'The Villa'!
"So why do yi support West Brom now?", we asked curiously!?"
"Because my ex husband supported Villa and my new husband supports Albion!"-----"Albion and Villa hate each other!", she replied!
