|!st HALF ACTION AZ THE TOON ATTACK THE FAR GOAL|
Due to the fact that this train iz chocker there will anly be a brief match report az I can hardly move!
Ayoze Perez hit a sweet right footed shot into the net in the 18th minute after Rondon had chested the baall doon to give The Toon the lead!
We were on the rampage in this half and shud have had at least 2 more goals, but couldnt add to Perez'z strike!
(Perez woz taken off injured in the 32nd minute which changed wor approach to the game in the 2nd period)
2nd HALF ACTION AZ WE ATTACK THE GOAL IN FRONT OF THE TOON FANS
(THE TOON ARE IN BLUE AND MAROON CHANGE STRIP)
The 2nd half woz a different story az we took wor foot off the gas and let Brightin back into the game!
They equalised in the 75th minute when Gross had a free header az wor defence woz in disarray!
Attendance:30,687 (2,500 Toon fans)
Thats it for now folks!--- az there's hardly room to swing a black cat by the tail!
A full match report will follow sometime tomorrow!
Updated 'high noon bells' Munday 29th April
The Saturday had started off with mee finishin' my nightly truck run to Manchester!---I got to bed at '3:00am bells' "ZZZzzz!!!"---and got up again at '7:00am bells' to catch the 8:58 bells' train to King's Cross (London)
It woz then onward to Lewes in Sussex where we had wor customary pre math gargels in the numerous pubs near the train station! (just 3, actually!) (see pix below)
The reason we went to Lewes and not Brightin, woz because it iz easier to get to The AMEX Stadium in Falmer from there, than it iz from Brightin train station (and aboot the same distance, 7 miles)
(Now yi naa why we call them 'Ne Where Near' Brightin!)
It woz then onward to Falmer where the train woz mostly full of Toon fans!
Orlier we'd hord that the SMBs had drawn with Portsmoooth and that Barnsleee had won which meant that the mackems would aalmost certainly miss oot on automatic promotion and settle for the lottery of the Leegue 1 play-offs
This had the Toon fans in buoyant mood and az we reached the groond the Brightin fans were aalso in a buoyant mood az they hord that Cardiff had lost at Fulim, which meeenz that they were virtually safe from relegation! (not quite, actually!)
The brief match report above iz not worth addin' tee, except we shud have had at least one penalty but the ref Toon fans love to hate, Mike Dean waved protest from Toon players away!
A 1-1 draw woz probably a fair result in the end, but it shud reeely have been 'aall 3' to 'us', after wor 1st half showin'!
Toon team: Debravka, Manquillo, Schar, Fernandez, Dummett, Ritchie, Hayden, Shelvey (Ki 73), Atsu (Muto 80), Perez (Kenedy 32), Rondon
"ONE HUNDRED AND TWENTY---THAT'S MORE THAN PLENTY!"
116 THE LANSDOWN ARMS, LEWES (Pre match
(Packed with Toon fans!)
|117 THE BREWERS ARMS, LEWES|
|118 THE RIGHTS OF MAN, LEWES|
After the match we heeded back to London where the post match drinks were consumed in 2 boozers near near Lords cricket groond in 'St Johns Wood,
119 DUKE OF YORK, ST JOHNS WOOD, LONDON (Post match)
(This boozer wouldn't take cash!---credit cards only!)
|120 ELGIN, ST JOHNS WOOD, LONDON|
bringin' wor seasons total (so far) to 120 different away boozers visited throughout the season!--- we then heeded back to wor hotel near Euston (London) for a good neets kip
"ZZZZZzzzzz!!!!!" before catchin' the '9:00am bells' train back from King's Cross the next mornin'!
The brief match report woz then done on the train yesterday!
The train woz packed, az the previous train to wors woz cancelled and everybody off the cancelled train had to catch wors, which meant severe overcrowdin' for the jorney back to Tyneside!
