"THIS TOON PERFORMANCE REEELY TAKES 'THE BISCUIT'!"
The mornin after the night before we made wor way to Forest's trainin' groond aboot a mile away from The City Groond where NUFC's forst team had won 2-1 against Forest!
Just before the game started it started 'chuckin it doon' and we were soaked to the skin even before the match had started az there woz nee cover at aall for spectators!
3 of the 2,950 Toon fans who were at The City Groond the neet before were in attendance, namely 'Glennn from Ashington', 'Blondie Alan the Morris Dancer' and 'little old me' ('Fink the mad-sad groundhopper'!)
Winless in wor previous 8 games we predictably started off badly and were 1-0 doon after just 6 minutes when Forest's Larsson fired home from a cross!
Forest doubled their lead in the 20th minute when McAdam tapped the baall into the net after a goalmooth scramble!
We pulled one back 5 minutes later when Rodrigo Vilca hit a low shot past the home keeper!
But thats az good az it got az the rain eased off!
In the 2nd period we had a free kick near the halfway line in the 60th minute, but instead of hittin the baall forward it went backwards instead, where we lost possession and Larsson said 'thank you very much' az he hit a sweet shot past Thompson in The Toon goal! 3-1 doon and there woz nee way back after that az the clouds torned grey and we got soaked again! (Talk aboot shootin yourself in the foot!)
On the far side of the uncovered groond there woz a banner which read: 'THE GARIBALDI THAT WE WEAR WITH PRIDE WAS MADE IN 1865' (The year Nottingham Forest were founded)
Curious to wot 'GARIBALDI' meant aa 'Googled it' on mee mobile 'telling bone' and it said that 'Garibaldi' woz a SQUASHED CURRANT BISCUIT!!!???
ie: THE 'SQUASHED CURRANT BISCUIT' THAT WE WEAR WITH PRIDE WAS MADE IN 1865! (Now that makes sense!---doesn't it???)
In other words we were 'cream crackered' (Knackered) by their U21s (sic!) Now that reeely does 'TAKE THE BISCUIT!' (double sic!)
PS: 'Glennn from Ashington' aalso 'Googled it' and the alternative answer woz: 'Garibaldi iz a shade of red' (Now that DOESN'T make any sense at aall!---does it???)
The pre match gargels took place here, bringin the away days total to 120 different drinkin dens for the season --so far!
