|VIEW FROM ROW 2, SEAT 97, ON THE MILBURN STAND BALCONY|
"YET ANOTHER ONE TO FORGET!"
After the great win at Sporz last Sunday it woz 'back doon the orth' in this dour display against pointless Wotfaad in from of wor lowest leegue crowd for 7 years! (44,000 plus!)
It took 'The Elton John Mob' less than 2 minutes to strike the forst blow, when Will Hughes slotted home at The Gallowgate End with wor defence at 'sixes and sevens'! (Great start--eh?)
WE just couldn't get 'oot of the blocks' az we 'slogged away', passin sideways and backwards for lang periods! "ZZZZzzzz!!!!"😴
We finally made 'the breaktrough' just before the half time break when a Krafth cross foond Hayden in the box who knocked it doon for FABian Schar to force the baall into The Leazes End net, to send the 43,000 Toon faithful into raptures ---and relief! (Wotfaad had 1,000 fans)
|EMPTY SEATS IN THE LEAZES END|
(WOTFAAD FANS ARE TOP RIGHT)
The 2nd period woz a bit better, but we couldn't find the winner az Wotfaad wasted time! Almiron woz caught 'offside' at least FIVE times in this half, much to the frustration of the crowd, who were very quiet for lang periods!
Muto who had came on az sub late on, ran doon the wing and hiz effort hit the side nettin' from a very tight angle, when it would have been better to pass the baall!---more frustration for the crowd!
A 1-1 draw then!, which amazingly moves us up from 2nd bottom to 14th of the table---for the time being!---
It's THE LIVERBIRDS next in a fortneets time at Anfeeeld, who are on a 14 game winnin' streak!----an eazy 3 points for 'us' then!
(There's an international break next weekend)
Footnote: £21 million man Almiron missed 2 good chances and haz now played 14 times for us and iz yet to score a goal or assist a goal!
