Hollow promises from wor manager Alan P45DEW that we would 'reward' wor fans with a 'fightin performance' in the derby after the disastrous defeat at Sporz last Wednesday, fell on 'deaf ears' az we lost to them for the 4th time in a row, givin' us (and HIM!) this very unwanted record in Tyne/wear history, stretchin' back to the 19th century!
Playin' just one up front for the 4th time in a row against them waz a recipe for disaster (again!) and we put in a disjointed performance, hardly able to put two passes together and hoofin the baall aimlessly upfield at any opportunity!
The mackems wornt any better az two mediocre teams slogged it oot for 89 minutes withoot any breakthrough!
|THE TOON ATTACK THE GALLOWGATE END (1st HALF)|
There were chances for both sides to open the scorin' before that, but terrible finishin' waz the order of the day!
And then in the very last minute of this cr*p game the horror story unfolded az they scored @ The Gallowgate End!
I covered my face and then looked through the cracks of my fingers, hopin' against hope that the ref would disallow it for some reason---but he DIDN'T! and the game waz lost!
|2nd HALF ACTION @ THE LEAZES END|
The boozers were jam packed after the game and we ended the neet in 'The Railway Club' where a'd previously bought a Xmas raffle ticket from 'Norman the Cowboy Plumber'---number 1996 came up az the winner of a bottle of vodka and it waz MY ticket that won it!
Oh! the f***in' temptation to drink the lot then and there!!!
Toon team who now have that unwanted record!:
Alnwick, Janmaat, Steve Taylor, Coloccini, Dummett, Tiote (Cisse 75), Colback, Sammy Ameobi (Cabella 89), Sissoko, Gouffran (Armstrong 59), Perez
Attendance: 52,315 (3,000 mackems) The mackems joined in the usual 17th minutes applause for the MH17 victims and we applauded them in the 33rd minute in response, for the fund they had started which raised £33,000) *
