"OOH ITS A CORNER!" (AT THE LEAZES END IN THE 2nd HALF)
RITCHIE'S CORNER WHICH LED TO SCAR'S 2nd GOAL
"93 YEARS AND COONTIN'!"
The last tine The Taffy Noses of Cardiff left SJP in a top flight game with a victory woz in 1926, some 93 years ago!----and on this showin' it will be anothaa 93 years before they leave here with anything!
|1st HALF ACTION AT THE GALLOWGATE END|
We 'huffed and puffed' for the most part of the forst half, when a massive penalty appeal woz torned doon by the 'blind ref', just after Perez had went close,--- but the breakthrough came at The Gallowgate End when 'Fab'ian Schar dribbled into the Cardiff penalty area from the halfway line before hittin' a precision left foot shot into the far corner of the net in the 24th minute!----a crucial goal which sent the crowd wild!
HT: 1-0 to 'us'!
In the 2nd half Perez went close again on the hour mark before Schar doubled hiz tally and wor lead from a Matt Ritchie corner, when he flicked the baall into the net from at The Leazes End!
Taffy Noses manager Neil Warnock (az usual!) winged throughout the match from the touchline and he winged even more deep into stoppage time when Perez added a 3rd from a superb Rondon cross, to send us above Cardiff and send them into the bottom 3!
A must, must, MUST win game that we did win---and with tough games against champions Man City at home to come and away games at Sporz and Wolves to follow, this woz a valuable 3 points and the 3 goal win aalso boosted wor goal difference---which could prove decisive in the final run in!
That's 7 goals scored in the last 2 games (4 v Blackborn in the midweek FA Cup replay)-----Lang may it continue!
Toon team: Dubravka, Schar, Yedlin, Lascelles, Ritchie (Manquillo 85), Hayden, S. Langstaff, Atsu, Perez, Rondon
Attendance: 49,864 , includin' The Fat Controller who woz slagged off a number of times durin' the match! (1,400 Taffys)
* Footnote: Spare a thought for a Toon and Gatesheed season ticket holder called 'Baallaa'.
He opted to gan to Salford to see The Heedbangers draw 1-1.
This woz the 3rd Toon home leegue game he haz missed this season that we have won!---and we have anly won the 3 he haz missed!
In total he haz seen us pick up just ONE solitary point v Fulim (0-0)!
We are havin a whiproond before the forthcomin home game v Man City to try and persuade him not to gan!
