|THE TOON PLAYERS CELEBRATE PEREZ'S WINNIN' GOAL |
IN FRONT OF THE TOON FAITHFUL!
"A GAME OF 2 HALVES!"<("YID BETTER BELEEEVE IT!")
Havin' travelled to 'the smoke' the evenin' before for this 1:30 bells Sunday encoontaa, aa left wor hotel in Tavistock Square near Euston station @ '10:00 bells' aftaa consumin' TWO large 'help yersel' brekkies (to keep me gannin for the day!) and made for O'Neills Bar near St Pancras station before heedin' for Kings Cross 'to collect' two more boozers, namely 'Millers Bar' and 'The Waiting Room',where aa 'waited' for 'Norman the Cowboy Plumber', who *'had taken a chance' and had travelled doon on an orly train, which duly arrived just 1 hour 15 mins before kick off! (*If the train had been delayed for any reason he would have missed the kick off!--or worse still! ---the whole game!)
Anyway!---we boarded the 259 bus which gans through Tottenham and arrived @ White Hart Lane some 45 minutes later, just in time for the start of proceedings!
Sporz went for the jugular straight away and before lang they took the lead in the 17th minute when Adebayor heeded an easy chance past Tim Krul in the Toon goal!
We were terrible up til this point and defeat looked certain az the home side went to double their lead and missed several good chances! It waz still just 1-0 at the break and we were thankful for that at least!
And then the 'game changers'----Sammy Ameobi and Remy Cabella replaced Obertan and Anita who 'were out of sorts' for the start of the 2nd period.
Straight from the kick off Ameobi teared doon the field and collected a through baall from Jack Colback and he fired a fierce shot into the far corner of the net with Sporz keeper Lloris beaten 'aall ends up' with just EIGHT seconds on the clock! (many Toon fans who were still in the concourse feedin' their 'alcohol habit' 'missed it'!)
It waz a different baall game now az WE 'went for the jugular' and just 13 minutes later Cabella crossed and an unmarked Perez heeded past Lloris to unbelievably put us 2-1 up!
The players celebrated wildly in front of the 2,000 plus Toon faithful az we danced in wor seats!
We somehow managed to hold on and beat Sporz for the 2nd year in a row at their place, but more importantly climb oot of the relegation zone to 14th place in the table and put the mackems 'in it'!---a very satisfactory outcome!
It waz a happy contingent of fans who travelled back to The Toon on the '4:45' from King's Cross where we arrived some 3 hours later!---bring on 'The Blue Moonies' <(who we play away in the Leegue Cup on Wednesday neet!)
Toon team: Krul, Janmaat, Steve Taylor, Coloccini, Dummett, Anita (Cabella 46), Colback, Obertan (Sammy Ameobi 46), Sissoko, Gouffran, Perez (Haidera 79)
Attendance: 35,650 (2,200 happy Toon fans!)
PS: TWO NEW PREMYAA GROONDS!---"YAHOOO!"
Some great news for the 'NUFC mad-sad groundhoppers' concernin' Sporz:
Because of buildin' work on the White Hart Lane site, Sporz are said to be relocatin' to Milton Keynes some 50 miles up the M1 for at least one season while the work iz completed.
This meeenz that (provided we are still in the same division az them?) we will have a new Premyaa Leegue groond to visit in the near future.
Not anly that!, but when Sporz move back to Tottenham their pitch will be in a different location just a few feet away from the present one!
This meenz!---when their new stadium iz opened this will be a new venue for 'the mad-sad groundhoppers' az it's 'next door' (see below pic!)
