|"WOR 'VIEW'? FROM THE FORTY POOND SEATS!?"|
Forst of aall apologeeez for the late postin' of this report, but aa did get back a bit late from this match ('5:15 bells' this mornin'!)
Anyway!---wor latest visit to 'The Wacko Jacko Statue Stadium' <(aka Craven Cottage!) waz (yet again!) not a happy one and remain in 14th position but at the time of writin' this, we are anly TWO points above 'the abyss' after this 2-1 revorse! (wor 4th defeat in a row here!)
Reeely!--- we shouldn't have been beaten, but defensive frailties cost us the game in the end.
The home side took the lead in the 19th minute when a shot by Sidwell hit Williamson's knee and the baall waz 'Kruely' deflected ower Tim Krul's heed and into the net via the bar at The Hammersmith End!
We equalised through Ben Arfa in the 54th minute when he ran doon the right hand side of the pitch and fired in a loopin' shot which aalso hit the bar and we were level, much to the delight of the 3,000 or so faithful who packed The Putney End!
|"WOR 'VIEW'? OF THE HAMMERSMITH END!?"|
We then went on the offensive and looked like winnin it on several occassions, but a needless free kick given away by Tiote on the edge of the box in the 62nd minute proved decisive, az ex Magpie Damian Duff, who was booed throughout by the Toon fans, got hiz revenge with a fine cross and Rodallega, who waz completly unmarked, had the simple task of heedin the baall past a helpless Tim Krul to win the game for them!
The coach yem didn't leave Fulham Palace Road til '11:00 bells' az one of wor passengers got lost and couldn't remember where it waz parked! (an aad biddy in hor 70's with a 'tea cosy' on hor heed!) (bless hor!)
We then had to endure a six hour jorney on the way back, which meant that aa didn't get to 'peepies' til after six this mornin' az mentioned! (hence the late report!)
AWAY DAY PURPLE PATCH!
We played in wor hideous aall purple away strip yesterday and we have now went THORTEEN away games this season in competitive matches withoot a solitary win! (Leegue, Leegue Cup and Europa Leegue!)
We now face the dauntin' prospect of a 'double heeder' against the Mancs 'finest' at home on Saturday and then away on Boxin' Day, before takin' on 'The Arse' away on the 29th!
The anly 'easy'? game we have ower the festive period is against 'arrys rag and bone men' from Shepherds Bush! (ne doubt HE would disagree!)
