"SWINGS AND ROONDABOOTS!"
If we had some fortuitous refereein' decisions against 'The P*ss Potters of Stoke' on Boxin' Day, then the exact revorse happened yesterday dinnaatime az Lee Probert gave us 'nixxy'!
The main taalkin' point of the game waz a free kick NOT awarded to Anita for The Toon at the mid-point of the 2nd half and then just 30 seconds after this, a dive by Santi Cazorla who waz adjudged to have been fouled by Tiote, resulted in the anly goal of the game when Walcott chipped the baall forward from the edge of the box.
Hiz chip foond Giroud, who, with the merest for touches put the baall past Tim Krul in The Toon goal! (mebeez Santi Cazorla shud be caalled 'Santi CLAUSE'! for hiz free kick 'gift')
'The Arse' had come oot to win the game from the 'off' and we defended for the forst 20 minutes before 'getting a grip' to fight back!
We could have taken the lead just before the break when Cabaye hit the bar @ 'The Gallowgate End', (see above pic) but hiz effort unfortunately went ower! (THAT waz wor best chance of the game!)

Really we matched them for most of the match and were unfortunate to say the least not to come away with a point---thanx mainly to the man in black!
After the match wor manager, 'I Beg Your Pardew', said: "There was definatly a foul on Anita, before the goal, without a shadow of doubt!--there was also a foul on Sissoko that the referee didn't give!"
"Against Stoke we had all the calls go our way and today, perhaps, we were on the other side of it!"
