|'THE TOON' ATTACK THE LEAZES END DURIN' THE 1st HALF|
"A GAME OF 2 HALF'S!" <( Bet yiv hord this one before!)
Before the match the talk in the bars waz just how many 'The Arse' would get against wor injury/suspension ravaged squad!
And so it waz to prove in the 1st period when they raced into a 2 goal lead with othaa chances 'gone abeggin'! We had some chances too, but couldn't put wors away and we went in 2 behind at the break!
We came oot with 'aall guns blazin' against 'The Gunners' at the start of the 2nd half and aalmost straight away we pulled a goal back when a Ryan Taylor run doon the right foond Cabella and hiz neat cross foond 'The Sissoko Kid' in the Gallowgate End penalty area and unmarked he gleefully excepted hiz chance to welly the baall past Ospina in the visitors goal!
This brought the crowd to life and we had great chances to equalise through Perez, Gouffran and Sissoko, but we couldn't find a way past their goalie again az 'The Arse' hung on for dear life!
|'TOON' ACTION @ THE GALLOWGATE END|
At the end of the day (apart from gettin' dark!) we went away pointless and anly results from teams below us in the table kept us 10 points above 'the abyss' (although Pardew's Palace DID win to gan above us and push us doon to 12th place!)
'Whey Aye (where's mee pie?)' Carver's CV now reads:
Played 12, won 2, drawn 3, lost 7, goals for 11, goals against 21. That's just ONE home win in THREE months (and of course just ONE away win in the same period!)
Toon team: Krul, Ryan Taylor, Janmaat, Williamson, Colback, Anita (Gutierrez 72), Sissoko, Gouffran, Cabella, Sammy Ameobi (Armstrong 89, Perez
Attendance: 50,544 (3,000 or so 'Arseholes' in level 7 of The Leazes!) It would have been a 'full hoose' but NUFC in their wisdom would anly sell tickets to members with NO public sales at aall!
PS: It costs a ridiculous £35 to become a 'member' (ie: you can't just turn up and buy a ticket anymore for certain games like 'The Arse' and Man U!)
PPS: On a totally different theme: On Thorsday the chancellor 'slashed'? 1p of a pint of beer in hiz budget speech---Yesterday aa went into 'The Bodega' on Westgate Road and ordered a pint of 'Caffreys' which waz £3 the last home game!---aa waz charged £3:20 this time and pointed this oot to the barmaid!---(who shrugged hor shoulders!) ---so much for 'slashin' the price of beer!---"EH!"
