A MINUTES SILENCE WOZ OBSORVED BEFORE THE KICK OFF
IN MEMORY OF THE GLORIOUS DEAD
2 and a half years ago we put in a horror show v Bournemoooth and lost in front of a capacity crowd---and it woz a case of 'de ja vu' az we lost the game in the 92nd minute after an aaful 2nd half performance in which wor visitors missed a sitter, hit the post and had countless corners at The Leazes End
|1st HALF ACTION AZ WE ATTACK THE LEAZES END|
The forst half woz a bit better for us az we went for 'the jugular' from 'the off' but couldnt find the net az we were well on top with efforts from Richie, Gayle and Atsu
The 2nd half as mentioned woz a complete shambles az we lost wor shape (and the game!) to drop into the bottom half of the table! (We were 6th 2 weeks ago and now sit 11th after 2 defeats in a row!)
|WE ATTACK THE GALLOWGATE END (2nd half)|
A visit to 'The Theatre of Muppets' in a fortneets time iz next up on 'the list' az we look downwards instead of upwards in wor quest for survival in the top flight!
Before and after the match we 'Went on a bender for November'
in defiance of the 'Dry January' and 'Go sober in October' brigade!
