"FROM ENTERTAINER TO UNTERTAINERS!"
Anothaa visit to Rosies Bar near SJP to watch us and anothaa rear-guard action where we somehow secured a point!
Before the match on 'Sky', former Toon player Kieron Dyer said that NUFC had once been caalled 'The Entertainers'---but Dyer expected anothaa 'dire' performance from us!---How right he woz!
Rosies upstairs woz fairly empty with some tables unoccupied, which told me that Toon fans are sick to death of watchin games on the telly and wor inept and borin' performances are a 'big switch off ' az well!
Aa meeen!---It took us until the 41st minute for us to have a shot on target----a weak effort from Saint-Max which woz easily saved by Patricio in the Wolves goal!
Wolves had made aall the play in this half, but their finishin woz just az bad!
The truth iz that NUFC never looked like scorin from open play in the entire game!
Disaster struck just 10 minutes from the end, when Jimenez shot from ootside the box to give the boys from 'the Black Country' a desorved lead and they looked certain to claim the 3 points!
HOWEVER! a master stoke by 'Broken Nose Bruce' in the 88th minute woz to bring Andy Carroll on when we had a free kick from the edge of the box!
A 'centre' to 6 foot 3 Andy looked on the cards, but Jacob Murphy had othaa ideas and he hit hiz free kick to the nearside of the Wolves goalie and the baall squeezed inside the post for an equalisin goal!
Aa nearly knocked mee pint of John Smith's ower az aa celebrated the goal, alang with the few othaa 'Tellyhoppers' in the bar!
It woz tooo late for Wolves to reply and we claimed an undesorved point once again! Amazingly we are unbeaten away from home this season, (3 games) but wor home record iz anothaa thing! (2 defeats in 3)----Nee crowd = Nee home advantage now!)
NUFC sit 14th in the table with 8 points!----So this iz a 'work in progress', iz it Steve?-----"ZZZZZzzzzz!!!!!"
Official attendance in Rosies upstairs: 10!
The bleak stats just aboot sums it up from wor point of view!
2 shots on target---and 1 of them woz wor goal!
And in the othaa 5 PL games played!
West Ham: 2 shots on target (2 goals)
Brightin: 0 shots on target (0 goals)
Sporz: 1 shot on target (1 penalty goal)
Bornley: 5 shots on target (3 goals)
Moan U: 4 shots on target (1 own goal)
Wolves: 2 shots on target (1 goal)
Total shots on target in 6 PL games: 14 (8 goals)
Average shots on target in 6 PL games: 2.4 per game!
OR! just ower 1 shot on target per half!
And a comment on Twitter from somebody caalled Barney sez it aall!
