"PAPPIS PUNISHES PULIS'S PALACE!"
Assistant John Carver again took the limelight in The Toon dugout az wor banned manager watched on a live video link from wor Benton trainin' base some six miles away! (communicating via 'mobile telling bone'!)
Anothaa one of those frustratin' games where we couldn't make the breakthrough beckoned @ St James' Park and Pappis Cisse had two good chances in the forst period to put us in front, but hiz goal drought continued az he fluffed hiz chances!
Pulis's Palace had came for a point and this waz obvious from the start az they wasted time and played a defensive formation to frustrate us!
The 2nd half wasn't much better but Palace fired a warnin' shot to us by rattlin' Tim Krul's crossbar in the 56th minute @ The Leazes End, through Bolasie!

Cheik Tiote then did likewise late on @ The Gallowgate End with his effort reboundin' off the bar, eventually findin' the feet of Cisse in front of goal, but he completely missed the baall and the chance waz gone!
This waz at 'the death' and by this time some 15,000 (or more!) Toon fans had departed---but they were soon to regret their decision to leave orly!
Into the 93rd minute of the game 'super sub' Ben Arfa raced forward and crossed into the box where hiz pin-point baall foond the heed of Pappis Cisse and he heeded past Speroni in the 'Crytsal Baalls' goal, (their main timewaster!) to deservedly win the contest, az the 30,000 plus Toon fans left in the groond went ballistic!---
Justice had been done against Pulis's negative tactics! (He complained bitterly after the game that the ref had played too much 'Fergie time' and therefore the game shud have finished before wor goal waz scored!) <(sour grapes from 'The Tramp in a Tracksuit'!---az the Toon fans love to caall him!)
Not a good game to watch---but at least Papiss Cisse iz a happy man to have scored hiz FORST goal in open play this season!---lang may it continue!
