On Sunday aa watched mee 7 year old grandson Jamie play at Swalwell for 'Redheugh Blacks' in front of 22 spectators and 2 ducks, which had wandered onto the pitch!
Last neet aa 'watched on' az Jamie (who woz one of the Toon mascots) run oot with the players in front of 48,814 spectators and 1 'duck-egg'! (The 'duck-egg in question torned oot to be the referee!---read on!)
In the warm up Jamie scored a 'penalty' against Karl Darlow at The Gallowgate End (see above) to huge roars from ME!, Zac (anothaa grandson) and wor lass, who woz in attendance to see mascot Jamie
|ZAC ENJOYS A BLACKCURRENT 'BEER' BEFORE THE MATCH!|
On the half hour mark of the game and amid the most extraordinary scenes ever witnessed at St James' Park the referee Keith Stroud awarded a penalty after Matt Richie had been fouled in the box at The Gallowgate End.
He took it himself and scored sendin' the keeper the wrang way--anly for the goal to be disallowed for encroachment by Dwight Gayle!
This meant that the penalty MUST BE RETAKEN!---But NO! the ref gives an indirect free kick to Bortin and waves the protests away az the crowd gans mad!
Frantic discussions with the 3 othaa official then followed but the SAME decision woz given, which sent Rafa and the players into a rage!
I honestleee have neva seen anythin' like it!!!!!
Anyway!--the 'duck-egg' ref woz roundly booooed for the rest of the half and just 3 minutes were added despite the penalty protests gannin on for at least twice az lang???
Justice woz done however in the 68th minute when Matt Richie hit an unstoppable shot into the roof of the net at The Leazes End to win the game for us!
The question iz this: How come aall FOWER (4) match officials divvint naa the rules of the game????
Match summary: Jamie scores a penalty at The Gallowgate End and the goal woz allowed!
Matt Richie scores a penalty at The Gallowgate End and the goal woz DISALLOWED!!!!
