|Black clouds descend ower the main stand on a black day for NUFC!|
Any thoughts that NUFC cud gan through an entire season unbeaten were brought to a shudderin' halt in west London on Friday neet after just one game!---thanks mainly to the referee who failed to spot TWO 'hand baalls' by Ful'im in the penalty area!---One in each half!
7,000 Toon fans had made the trip to Craven Cottage and packed The Putney End and were in great voice az the match started!
|Happy Toon fans at the start of the match (we wornt so happy at the end!)|
The cottage which gives the groond it's name iz in the corner!
We dominated the game in the orly periods az we attacked The Hammersmith End at the far end from us, but couldn't make the breakthrough and had NE shots on target in the forst half (if mee mind serves me correctly!?)
A penalty appeal for a blatant hand baall in the 35th minute, when a Matt Richie shot waz handled by Ful'im's Ryan Tunnacliffe inside the box, waz waved away by Hopper the ref, az the 7,000 Toon fans, the players and Rafa protested loudly!
Thiz blunder by Hooper would prove decisive az bang on half time the home side scored from a set piece when Matt Smith heeded in unmarked at the far post, givin' Sels in The Toon goal ne chance!

We simply didn't get oot of the blocks in the 2nd half and anly had 2 shots on target!---we were SO disappointin'!
Anothaa blatant hand baall in the last minute of game when again, a Matt Richie shot waz blocked twice by Kalas this time, (with both arms!), but again the 'blind ref' Hooper gave us nowt and we lost for the SIXTH time in a row at 'The Cottage'!
Like aa say we didn't play well but the ref won the game for the Londoners with hiz inexplicable decisions!
It's certainly IZ gannih be a lang hard season!
