"TALES OF THE EXPECTED!" (Again!)
(Brief match report on train(s) back)
Anothaa 'white flag of surrender game' where we tried to contain 'The Liverbirds'--but predicably we failed miserably az we watched on from row 31 in The Anfield Road End with wor view restricted by the roof above (see photos!)
We lasted til the 40th minute when Salah shot and it defected off Dubravka and into the net!
Mo Diame nearly equalised a minute later, but hiz shot woz tipped aroond the post by Karlus in the home goal!---wor best chance of the match!
After the break we conceded again in the 55th when Mane fired home in front of The Kop!
It woz 'white flag time' and no way back az wor powder puff attack failed to dent the home sides defence!
It could have been worse az The Liverbirds went for more, but thankfully they couldnt add any more and wor goals against column woz anly slightly dented!
Othaa results went wor way (apart from Brighton's win on Sunday!) and we are still 2 points above the drop zone in 16th place!
Geordie Times fact file:
We have now played 5 of the so caalled 'top 6' away from home and lost the lot!
