|THE TOON ATTACK THE LEAZES GOAL (1st half)|
"A ONE TO FORGET!"
On a freeezin caad afternoon (in April?) The Toon FROZE in front of the 52,000 plus sell oot crowd!
West Brom, who look doomed to life in the 2nd tier of Inglish futbaall, had nowt to lose and it woz obvious from 'the off' that we were in for a lang afternoon!
And so it proved az WBA took the lead when an unmarked Matt Phillips fired into the roof of the net at The Gallowgate End on the half hour mark, to send their 1,000 or so diehards high up in The Leazes End opposite, in raptures!
Reeelly, the ref shud have blew for full time, then, az it woz obvious that we wouldnt score if we played til Xmas!
This woz despite the fact that we hit the woodwork twice in the 1st period az well! (ie:'Lady luck' woz definatleee against us this time!)
|ACTION AT THE GALLOWGATE END (2nd half)|
The 2nd half wasnt much better and this woz 'A day to forget' for certain az we couldn't get oot of 1st gear!
This woz wor forst home defeat this year!
Swanzee'z home defeat v Chelski in the late kick off meant that we would definately be safe, az Swanzee still have Sooothampton to play, which meenz one of them wont be able to match wor 41 points total!
Lets hope that now the pressure iz off, that we can put in a much better performance at Wotfaad next Saturday!?
Toon team: Dubravka, Yedlin, Lascelles, Lejeune, Dummett (Murphy 58), Ritchie, Diame, Shelvey, Kenedy, Perez (Joselu 78), Gayle (Slimani)
Attendance: 52,283 (1,000 or so Baggie Troosers diehards!)
Footnote: We say 'The Baggie Troosers' az WBAs nickname iz 'The Baggies' az they used to wear 'baggie trousers' in the 19th century!
PS: Congratulations to Wycombe Wanderers who won promotion to Leegue 1 yesterday!
Guess who they will be playin' next season!?
