"WHO'S YOUR NEXT 'MESSIAH'?"---
'The Hazbeenz & Villians' came to St James' Park on the back of six defeats in a row and were hopin' that new heed coach Tim Sherwood would be able to dig them oot of the mire of 2nd bottom place in the Premyaa Leegue!
Of course there waz 'history' between the fans, when in 2009 Villa fans took great pleasure in witnessin' wor relegation to The Championship, when they unveiled banners in The Holte End of Villa Park, which read: "SOB ON THE TYNE!" and "WHO'S YOUR NEXT 'MESSIAH'?"---"ANT OR DEC!???"
There waz absolutleee ne need for this at the time az The Toon and Villa fans (up til this point in history) had ne animosity between them!---this aall changed on that fateful day in 2009 and we have never forgotten that they 'took the p*ss' and laughed at wor demise and even had those banners made, to 'rub it in'"!
"WOT GANS AROOND!---COMES AROOND!"
|'GEORDIE TIMES EXCLUUUSIVE!' *** CISSE'S GOAL! |
(HE IZ PARTIALLY HIDDEN BY NUMBER 28 AMEOBI)
The game started off with many mistayks from both sides, but Villa had the better chances orly on and 'fluffed their lines' in front of goal on 3 occasions at least @ The Gallowgate End!
A rare sorte into The Leazes End in the 37th minute from 'us' saw an unmarked Papiss Cisse score from inside the box, from a pinpoint Janmaat cross from the right!---wor FORST shot on target az well! to send 49,000 of the 51,000 plus crowd, wild with delight! (Villa had 2,000 travellin' fans!)
|THE TOON ATTACK THE GALLOWGATE GOAL (2nd half)|
(View from Milburn Stand balcony)
We played much better in the 2nd half and 2 chances of note were missed by us. The 1st waz when Obertan waz put through---he raced up the pitch and with anly Guzan in the Villa goal to beat he 'baallzd it up' and missed hiz chance.
Then 'at the death' Perez hit the post after Guzan punched clear, but 'it mattered not' az we played oot SEVEN minutes of stoppage time <(where the hell did they get that from?) before the ref finally blew, much to the relief of The Toon faithful!
We are now 'cemented' in 11th place in the table, while 'The Hazbeenz' remain 2nd bottom in the relegation 'mire' <(oh how we would celebrate if they went doon!)
And yi naa that old sayin'---divvint yiz!---
