|THE TOON (in white) ATTACK THE LESTAA GOAL DURIN' THE 2nd HALF|
A much better display than the last away game at Stoke--but the same result! A 1-0 defeat meenz that we have nuw lost EIGHT (8!) in a row on the road and wor inability to put the baall into the net waz wor downfall (yet again!) last neet in Lestaa!
Rafa Benitez took hiz forst game in charge and we matched the leegue leaders for most of the match but just couldn't find that killer touch!
We seemed more organised than of late and where McClaren didn't have a clue of formations, Rafa does!
The anly goal of the game came in the 25th minute when a bicycle kick from Okazaki sealed wor fate---although Vardy looked offside!
|1st HALF ACTION AZ THE TOON ATTACK THE FAR END|
Sissoko, Mitrovic, Perez and De Jong aall missed chances and there in lies wor problems---goals meenz points--ne goals meenz nowt!
Anotha one goal defeat on the road (and there have been quite a few lately) have cost us dear az we gan into the must! must! must! win derby next Sunday @ SJP!
Lets hope 'Rafa the Gaffa' can work hiz magic there!
