|THE TOON (in dark blue strip) ATTACK THE NEAR GOAL|
"DISASTER DAY(S) DIARY!"
Like a condemned man waitin' for hiz last meal, aa dragged mee lifeless body oot mee 'scratch-pit' @ '3 am bells' for a 'wash n brush up' before jumpin' in a taxi for 'The Central' to catch the '4:45am bells' train to 'the smoke'
It waz then onward by tube to Waaterloo Station where we caught the '9:50am bells train to deepest Hampshire---where we arrived @ '11:00 bells' and heeded straight for a Wetherspoon's boozer called 'The Giddy Bridge' for the forst 'liquid lubrications of the day' (er!---apart from the 4 cans on the train doon!) and a nose-bag'! <(mee 'last meal' before the game!)

BEFORE THE MATCH (IT SOON WAZ!!!!)
A couple of more 'liquid lubrication location' stops later and it waz time to gan for 'wor punishment' and heeded for St Mary's Stadium.
Within fower minutes of the kick off we were 1-0 doon thanx to some aaful defendin' on wor part and we were doon on wor knees from this point onwards!
That it took the home side anothaa 34 minutes to increase their lead waz an inevitable conclusion az we were absolutleee shokin' once again 'on the road' (anothaa defensive error!)
The gallows humour waz in full flow by this time with the usual self inflicted chants of doom and gloom!
Wanyama made it 3-0 to Sooothampton in the 55th minute az wor heeds were nearly 'on the deck' az Rafa tried in vain to 'rally the troops'---some chance from this shambolic lot!
A spectacular consolation goal from Adros Toonsend had the Toon fans dancin' in their seats singin' "We've scored a goal!---we've scored a goal!"---much to the amusement of the home support!
It waz of course 'aall ower' by this point and the anly consulation waz that Norwich were losin' @ Palace to 'quite not condemn us' ---yet!
After the game it waz back to Waaterloo on a train so packed we had to 'shoehorn' wor way on and stand the entire one and a half hour jorney back to 'the smoke', squashed in like sardines!---more 'punishment' for the lang sufferin' Toon travellers'!
A few more 'gargels' later and it waz time to catch the last train back---to--- DONCASTER!----From there we had to change trains and eventually arrived back at 'The Central' @ '1:00 am bells ---Sunday mornin'!
Mee pre booked taxi then DIDN'T torn up (addin to my 'punishment'!) and aa eventually arrived home in anothaa taxi @ 1:40am bells', completleee 'cattle-trucked' from the day(s) 'events'!
