Updated '4:36pm bells' Munday
Jonjo Shevey takes a corner az a Toon fan in front of us strips off!
"I DON'T LIKE MUNDAYS!"😞
Wor 15th successive Munday away game (thats reet FIFTEENTH!) didn't start or end well az we put in a negative performance against a Villa team who sat 4 points behind us before the game (now 1)
This dire performance? iz on par with wor games at Norwich (1-3) and Lestaa (0-5) az wor forward trio which cost £78 million in total failed miserably and hardly tested the home keeper!
2 set pieces cost us in first half as both needlessly given away free kicks from just ootside the box foond the back, of the net, one direct and the other from a cross!
Honestly, it woz pathetic display from the black n whites!
To sum up, both £40 million man Joelinton and £21 million man Almiron were substituted in the 2nd half, with Andy Carroll and Dwight Gayle comin' on in a desperate bid to score a goal!
It didn't happen and so we must dust worsels doon and try again on Saturday when we are at home to current champions Man City!
Neeboďy gives us much hope in 'that one', but this IZ NUFC and anything can happen!
Toon team: Dubravka, Yedlin, Willems, Dummett (Carroll 63), Fernandez, Hayden, Clark, Shelvey, Almiron (Atsu 79), Saint-Maximin, Joelinton (Gayle 72)
Attendance:41,879 (just under 3,000 tortured Toon fans!)

*A TalkSport commentator sums it up when taking aboot Almiron:
"He couldn't be dangerous with an open razor!"😳
