|"CABAYE'S FREE KICK HEEDS GOAL-BOUND!"|
An absolutleee disasterous result for us and the dreaded 'R' word waz deein' the roonds in the clubs and pubs after the game az angry and disaloooshand<(Geordie Times spellin'!) fans droonded their sorrows!
THREE great chances which fell to Cisse in the forst half shud have sealed the game for us on a wintry afternoon @ 'The Park', but a combination of brilliant saves from 'The Biscuitmens' keeper and bad luck prevented hiz hat-trick!
Yohan Cabaye's free kick on the edge of the box @ The Gallowgate End (see 'Geordie Times' photo above) after Marveaux had been fouled, left their keeper rooted to the spot az it whizzed into the top corner of the goal and it looked at this point that we would gan on to win the game easily!
BUT! this iz NUFC and the substitution of Marveaux for James Perch telt us that we intended to haad on to wor one goal lead rather than gan for more goals---And this proved to be wor doonfaall when in the 70th minute the visitors made an inspired substitution when centre forward Le Fondre came on.
Within TWO minute he had equalised with a scrambled goal @ The Gallowgate End to the horror of 'yorz trulee' and 48,000 otha Toon fans!
An apparently injured Cabaye then went off to be replaced by Bigiramana in the 73rd minute and loud protests then enveloped the groond az wor manager stood forlornly on the touchline!----
But worse waz to follow fower minutes later when Le Fondre again beat wor defence after a sliced effort from anotha Readin' player fell nicely to him and he tucked the baall past an unsighted Tim Krul in the Toon goal, to send their 1,000 travellin' fans in level 7 of The Leazes End wild!
This aalso sent the Toon fans 'wild' az wor manager got the brunt of abuse with chants <(for the forst time) of: "YI DON'T KNOW WOT YI DOIN'!" <(looks like yi 'honeymoon period' iz ower now, Alan!)
Anotha great chance by Cisse to level things near 'the death' ended up high in The Leazes stand and just after this the ref blew for full time to loud protest against wor manager AND owner!
The 'bleak mid-winter' continues!
Toon team: Krul, Santon, Debuchy, Williamson, *Coloccini?, Cabaye (Bigiramana 73), Anita (Obertan 79), Gutierrez, Marveaux (Perch 64), Shola Ameobi, Cisse
*We were suprized to see Colo in the line up az we were telt last week that the Norwich away game would be hiz last!
Attendance: 49,411 (highest in Britain on the day!) (1,000 'Biscuits' 'risked it' in the snow!)
PS: Unlucky 'mascots' 'John from Ireland' and hiz son Ciaran were at the match. They very rarely see 'The Toon' win on their visits to Tyneside from across the Irish Sea, which number aboot five or six a season!
(Their last 'win' waz against Liverpool on 'April Fools Day' last season!)
Their next intended visit IZ!----wait for it!----for wor derby game against the SMBs! this April!---"AARRGGHH!"<(it's time to pull yer 'hair oot' folks!)
PPS: On the otha hand, and because that's the last time they'd seen us win, the month of 'April' just might just prove to be a LUCKY omen!?)<(lets hope so for their sake!!!)
