|"THE 'MUTHAA' OF AALL GROONDS!"|
THE GRAND TOUR OF SCOTLAND 2013 (Part One)
"MAMA WE'RE AALL CRAZY NOW!"
The Toon started off their pre-season in Scotland with a fine 4-2 win @ Fir Park last neet against Scottish Premyaa Leegue runners up Muthaawell!
The two and a half hour drive from Tyneside in the bakin' heat ended outside the Fir Park Social Club where we parked up and went in for a few 'gargels'! <(to quensh wor thirsts---yoo understand!)
At £2 admission to the club and 'Smiths' at £3:20 it wasn't a cheap day oot and not suprizingly the locals 'gave it a miss' and the bar waz half empty with just one hour to kick off!
A few noisy Toon fans were in the lounge next door where a Kareoke waz gannin on and 'anti-mackem' songs to the tune of 'The Monkees' <(yi naa the ones!) were dein' the roonds!
From there, we heeded to the away tornstiles and there were around 1,500 Toon fans who had travelled with around 3,000 'Muthaa F*****s' in the home sections!
The Toon took the lead in the 8th minute when Haris Vuckic tapped in after the home keeper had fumbled the baall!
The lead was doubled 7 mins later when Gouffran slooted home after bein put through by Vuckic.
A solitary England flag made an appearance, much to the annoyance of the home fans, congregated in the corner of the main stand! (drummer boy and aall!)
'The Muthaa F*****s' reduced the deficit not lang after with a fine shot from Vigurs!
Then, in the 36th minute "Get out of our club!", anti 'Fat Controller' chants were hord for the forst time in the visitors section, with aboot 50 or so joinin' in! < (not me, by the way!---wot waz the point?--he wasn't there anyway!)
The two goal advantage waz restored in the 38th minute when 'The Sissoko Kid's shot was fumbled by the home keeper for the second time and the baall trickled ower the line to the delight of the 1,500 or so faithful behind the far goal, where a smoke bomb waz set off amongst the 'anti 'Fat Controller' brigade'!
Again the home side reduced the deficit, when just after the re start James McFadden lobbed in a free kick which beat Elliot in The Toon goal!
The final goal came in front of the away supporters when in the 64th minute Dummett crossed and 'Marveaux the Magician' waz on hand to score with the simplest of tap-ins!
A good forst workout for wot waz mainly a young Toon side and in total, includin' the subs, NINETEEN player were given a 'workoot'!----Lang may it continue!
