|THE PLAYERS SHAKE HANDS BEFORE KICK OFF|
"AALL EYES ON CARDIFF NOW!"
Wot can we say?----A game we needed to win to make us 'safe' woz lost in the dyin' embers of the game, when a needless penalty woz given away by at The Leazes End by Yedlin in the 81st minute!
"OOH IT'S A CORNER!"
THE TOON ATTACK THE LEAZES GOAL (1st half)
Not sure how many shots we had, but it must have been 18 or 19 compared to Palliss's 2 or 3 and we reeely shud have got something oot of this game! (like 3 points!)
2 goals were disallowed for offside (one for each side) but from wor point of view, efforts from, Rondon, Richie, Perez and Lejeune (etc) were denied by the Palliss goalie and then Lejeune went doon injured and had to be carried off on a stretcher in the 65th minute!
|ACTION AT THE GALLOWGATE END (2nd half)|
When Milivojevic <(hope this iz spellt reet?) stepped up to take the penalty, someone behind me said that he'd aalready scored NINE penalties this season!
He didn't miss, sendin Dubravka the wrang way to clock up hiz 10th and send the Toon fans into despair az we hord that Bornley were winnin at Bournemoooth, meenin that both them and Palliss were leap-frogging us in the table!
With the teams mentioned aroond us pickin up points, we drop to 15th in the table, still 7 points above Cardiff, but 'The Taffy Noses' now have a game in hand az they arnt playin this weekend!
Aall eyes are now on their results az the dreaded 'R' word iz still possible!---They play Bornley next Saturday, while we must travel to Lestaa the neet before! (who won 4-1 at 'uddersfeeeld yesterday!)
|BOTTOM OF THE TABLE|
It's 'squeeeky bum time folks' az we bid to avoid the 'abyss' of 'The Championship' for the thord time in 10 years!
Az we are 7 points clear of the last relegation place and have a far superior goal difference to Cardiff, this scenario iz unlikely with games runnin oot---but NOT impossible!
