|THE TOON ON A RARE ATTACK IN THE 2nd HALF|
"HOW MANY GOALS THIS TIME!?????"
Forst of aall, apologies for not updatin' this 'horror show report' yesterday, but aa waz at 'The John Alder Collection Auction' @ St James' Park yesterday mornin', where a Magnificent £26,000 waz raised by the sale of aall hiz vast memorabilia! <(more on that tomorrow!)
'Apologies' were aalso forthcomin' from 'John "whey aye the pie" Carver' for wor abject display @ The City of Manc Stadium, when we gave away wot iz surely the quickest ever penalty, conceded by Anita with just 27 seconds on the clock when he torned the wrang way and brought Dzeko doon in the box! (Anita Harris would have done better!) ^^^^^
Convorted by Aguaro we were soon 2 behind 10 mins later when Nasri had aall the time in the world to place hiz shot past Tim Krul in The Toon goal to end the contest then and there!--after ELEVEN MINUTES!
It waz at this point I wished I waz in a boozer somewhere gettin' totally 'sloshed' to obliterate the shambles unfoldin' in front of me, from my memory!
The Toon fans behind Krul's goal were resigned to wor fate and it waz just a question of when 'The Blue Moonies' would get their thord az we were absolutleee aaful once again on wor travels!
The 3rd came of course!---in the 21st minute, when Dzeko simply waalked through wor 'defence'? to place hiz shot beyond wor beleaguered keeper!
'Pie-man' Carver <(he likes the odd 'snake and pigmy' variety!) and the rest of hiz coachin' staff just sat rooted in the away dugoot, not naain just wot to de az they twiddled their thumbs and scratched their heeds! <(white flags at the ready!)
|1st HALF ACTION (view from row 'W' seat 377 Sooth Stand level 1)|
Somehow we got to the break withoot concedin' any more---but again we wondered just how many the home side would get in the 2nd period, such waz the huge gulf in class between the 2 sides! < (aboot az wide az the mouth of the Tyne!)
It didn't take lang!---6 minutes!---when Silva hammered the baall past Krul and just 2 minutes later he added a 2nd, similar to hiz forst! 5-0! with still 38 minutes on the clock and anothaa hammerin' waz on the cards!
However==for reasons unknown, City took their foot off the gas and thanx mainly to Tim Krul who made some great saves, nothin' more waz added to wor 'away goals column'!
A 5-0 defeat somehow felt like a relief!---theeze are indeed dire times for anyone who follows the 'black & whites'!
Just look at wor away record this season against the current top 7 at the moment: Chelski 0-2 --- Man City 0-5 --- The Arse 1-4 --- Man U 1-3 --- Sooothampton 0-4 --- The Liverbirds "still to play!" (last season 1-2) ---Sporz 0-4
We just can't hack it against the 'big boys' <("er!" Sooothampton az well???) That's ELEVEN leegue defeats in a row against 'The Blue Moonies'---a shockin' record that iz the worst in wor history!
Carver's CV now reads: Played 8, won ONE game in TWO months, drawn 3, lost 4!
Toon fan 'Tex Taylor' who waz fortunate not to be there and watched it on the telly, said yesterday: "We may az well be in The Championship!---at least we won't get humiliated there!" <(divvint bet on it!)
Toon team: Krul. Janmaat (Ryan Taylor 70), Coloccini, Williamson, Haidara, Sissoko, Anita (Abeid 46), Colback, Perez, Cisse, Gouffran (Obertan 86) <(why???)
Attendance: 45, 602 (just 2,000 Toon fans in the lower tier of the away end) <(we sold both tiers for the Leegue Cup tie!) *
The pre and post match 'gargels' took place here!
