THE BORNLEY HILLBILLIES 1 THE TOON 0 *** PREMYAA LEEGUE 2019-2020

Posted '11:28am bells' Sunday 15th December 2019
VIEW FROM ROW Z, SEAT 0063 OF THE CRICKET FIELD STAND

Well!-- there's one thing for certain, it wont tek lang to see this match report!

Anothaa dire away performance in the rain, sleet and hailstones off the Lancashire hills, made it a black miserable day for the Toon fans present!

It reeely iz hard to watch this drivel and with a strikeforce of Carroll and Joelinton, we produced exactly NEE shots on target from the forst whistle to the last!

At 40 million quid, Joelinton haz got to be wor worst buy ever (even worse than 16 million midget Michael Owen!) az he failed yet again to score or come close to doin so!
(Just ONE goal in 17 starts and NONE in the last 14!)

Bornley wornt very good eethaa but the one and anly goal of the game to them in the 58th minute, when the ref at forst gave a goal kick to us--and then changed hiz mind? ---and from the resultin corner the home side took the lead through Wood and there woz nee way back after this!
A weak effort from Joelinton and a miss by Gayle in the 2nd period woz the anly 'highlight' from NUFC (or shud that be LOWlight?)

Quite simply, yoo cant win a game if yoo don't have a shot on goal and so it proved az the 2,450 Toon faithful watched on in disbelief at probably wor worst performance of the season, against a side that had conceded 11 goals in their last 3 games!

A one to consign to the history books aalready, FULL STOP.

Toon team: (who didn't do justice): Dubravka, Manquillo, Fernandez, Schar, Dummett, Willems (Gayle 71), Atsu (Muto 81), Hayden, S. Longstaff, Joelinton, Carroll

Attendance: 19,798 (2,450 fed up Toon fans in The Cricket Field Stand)

Before and after the game we went on wor usual 'liquid lubrication pub crawl' in various hostelries in Bornley and Manchester (where we caught train connections!)
