SISSOKO IZ NEXT TO GOALIE AND BAALL IZ IN CENTRE OF PICTURE
JUST BEFORE IT CROSSED THE GOAL LINE!
*** 'GEORDIE TIMES' EXCLUUUSIVE!
(Deep breath!) >>>> "SUPERB SISSOKO SOLO STRIKE STUNS SAD SITY!" <("er!"--- CITY!)
AT LAST!---We have 'this monkey off wor back' az we recorded wor forst EVER win @ The City of Manc Stadium <(or whatever yi want to caall it?) at the TWELTH (12th) time of askin'!
A youthful Toon team took the field and az we said in 'The Geordie Times' yesterday "Thiz IZ NUFC and anything can happen!"---and it DID!
Wor forst strike of the neet came az orly az the SIXTH minute from Rolando Aarons who received a superb through baall from Ryan Taylor, who waz makin' hiz lang awaited comeback after two years on the sidelines with bad injuries!
|"SPOT THE ADVERTS!?"***"WHERE'S MEE SUN GLASSES!?"|
Arrons got the baall from Taylor and went on a mazy run into the box before firin' the baall past Caballero in the Blue Moonies goal to put us in the lead! (a 'Taylor made' goal!) <(sic!) This sent the 3,000 Toon faithful wild with delight az the players celebrated on the touchline.
Surely it couldn't last???---but it DID and we went in one goal to the good at the break!
In the 2nd half a blatent penalty in front of the Toon faithful waz torned doon by the ref when Obertan waz scythed doon in the box, much to the annoyance of aall the players and 'us'!
However!---justice waz done not lang after when 'super sub' 'The Sissoko Kid' ran into the box, beatin' a myriad <(we naa aall the big words!) of City defenders to fire home into the far corner of the net to the jubilation of the away fans, with just qwaataa of an hour left on the clock!
We held oot for a famous victory against the current Leegue Cup holders and Premyaa Leegue champions and aa have to say that Ryan Taylor inparticular had a supurb game and waz influential in the result!
A 'TAYLS FROM THE UNEXPECTED' result--if ever their waz one!
The anly 'damper' on things came az we waalked back to wor mini bus after the game, when news came through that the draw for the qwaataa finals had paired us with Sporz!---AWAY!---who of course we visited and beat last Sunday in a Premyaa Leegue game!
