Wor final (and anly!) home pre season fixture of the season waz played yesterday az The Toon wor an 'aall white' number with a a black 'V shape' design on the front and we have to tell yoo that a game that waz definatleee heedin for a goal-less draw --didn't! ---az 'The Sissoko Kid' scored the anly goal of the game for us against the 'Real Dads Army' of Spain namly Real Sociedad @ St James' in front of just under 20,000 (including a total of TWO 'Daddy Cool fans'!)
The main taalkin points of the game were:
17th minute: A rapturous one minutes applause for 'The Undertaker' (The Caped Crusader) and 'Liam from the Lamp' enveloped the groond in tribute to those two super fans who's anly 'crime' waz to want to gan to New Zealand to watch their team play!---but of course they never made it due to an unspeakable terrorist act against flight MH17 from Amsterdam to Kuala Lumpar ower the Ukraine! (RIP John and Liam!)
In 'The Undertaker's' case this would be the forst home game he had missed for ower 50 years, whereas hiz 'apprentice', 'Liam from the Lamp' waz just a few years into hiz 'Toon travels' <(they will both never be forgotten by aall of us!)
26th minute: New boy Daryl Janmata sets up Emmanuel Riviere but he just missed the baall for a certain goal!
60th minute: Mike Williamson gans close but 'Daddy's keeper Rulli makes a fine save from hiz bullet heeder!
87th minute: "GGGOOOAAALLLL!"--- The '|Angel Gabriel' Obertan puts in a fine cross to set up 'The Sissoko Kid' on the edge of the box and he wellies the baall past their keeper at 'The Gallowgate End' to win the game for us, az the rain p*ssed doon!
'The Geordie Times' prediction that we would use between 17 and 18 players (see below) wasn't that far off the mark az a total of 20 players were in fact used by NUFC!
Attendance: 19,188 (2 'Real' Daddys!)
