|ANOTHER CHANCE GANS A-BEGGIN'!|
"WOTS GANNIN ON---LIKE!?"
"Metaphorically speaking, Steve McClaren's team never got off the bus!" <(quote from The Daily Mail!)
Some new faces in wor side but the same old story, az we hardly ventured into the Everton half in the forst half, with precisely NE shots on goal and NE corners at aall!
The inability to de anything remotely like an attackin' formation waz flustered time and time again when we got anywhere near the half way line and the home side made us pay with a goal at the mid point of the half!
Aaron Lennon put them aheed with a toe poked shot @ The Gladys Street End and really we wernt gannin to come back from that---in the forst half at least!
We were truly dreadful and Andros Toonsend, Johnjo Shelvey and Co. must be wonderin' exactly wot they've let themsels in for, comin' to The Toon!
Toonsend was obviously not fit and othaa new boy Henri Saivet made ne impact whatsoever!
|THE TOON PREPARE FOR THE 2nd HALF KICK OFF (Why did we bother!)|
We did a bit better in the 2nd period when we actually had a shot on goal from Shelvey in the 50th minute and in a 'purple patch? we got a few corners az well, but we couldn't de the blindingleee obvious, and put the baall in the net!
|THE TOON MAKE A RARE 'SORTE' @ THE GLADYS STREET END (2nd half)|
Super sub Mitrovic had missed a great chance, but wellied wide---and that waz it!
The Toffee Noses hit the wood-work 3 times in the 2nd half az Elliot in The Toon goal kept the score doon by deflectin' shots onto the post and bar!
2 penalties for the home side in the dyin' embers of the game, the last one in which Lascelles got himself needlessly sent off 'did justice' to the scoreline!
After the match on the car radio 'The Wally (withoot) the Brolly' unbelievably said we were "in it til the death" until we gave the 2 penalties away!
But NIL goals meenz NIL points, if the opposition get just ONE goal, Steve!
|"DO WE REALLY NEED TO ADD ANYTHING???"|
In complete contrast to the above statement, The Daily Mail said: 'Newcastle were wretched, why do they bother!'---'They were just rubbish, lacking energy, commitment and wit!'
Just SIX goals in FOURTEEN competitive away games this season and TEN defeats in THORTEEN tells it's own sorry tale!
Wor 'last throw of the dice' comes in 2 days time!
Failure to beat WBA at home on Saturday and we are knackered! FULL STOP..........................................................................!
