"3 IN A ROW! HO! HO! HO!"
For the 3rd time this year we beat Moan U for the forst time in 102 years----1921 to be exact!---And this iz the worst performance from them that 'yours truly' haz seen in 55 years!
We started off on the front foot on a bitterly caad neet and the same startin line up that we played in Paris last Tuezday!
There are too many Toon chances to mention, but Kieron Tripper's free kick woz the closest we came to scorin, az his shot from ootside the box hit the bar at The Gallowgate End, but reboonded off the goal line to safety!
Man Us goalie Onana got some horrific stick everytime he touched the baall, az he woz at fault for 2 of Galatasaray's goals in their Champions Leegue game on Wedinzday! ("Dodgy keeper!"and aall that!)
The breakthrough came in the 55th minute when a pinpoint cross from Trippier from the Leazes End byline foond Anthony Gordon unmarked and he hit a sweet shot from close in to give us the lead, to very loud roars from the Toon faithful! (The guy in front of me stood up and blocked mee view of Gordon for a split second and ah just seen the baall enter the net!----but not Gordon hittin it!) Sit doon iff yih luv The Toon!
We completly dominated the game and could easily have won 4 or 5 nil, but lady luck (like Trippers crossbar effort) woz against us yesterday!
Yet another injury blow woz added to the lang list when Toon goalie 'The Pope' injured hiz shoulder late on and had to be replaced by Martin Dubravka!
The 3 points took us above wor opponents who's manager whinged on aboot 'us' playin on Tuezday and 'them' playin on Wedinzday, thus givin 'us' more time to recover from both of wor midweek exploits in The Champions Leegue! We divvint caall them 'Moan U ' for nothin!
Attendance: 52, 214 (3,100 Muppets in level 7 of The Leazes End ---many had heeded for the exits for the last train to King's Cross, before the ridiculous 9 minutes of stoppage time were added!)
*Before the match az they marched up to the away end the Moan U Muppets sang the usual: "Alan Shearer sad Geordie bastard, shit futball team", song!---We are SO shit that we have beat them 3 times in a row!---just sayin'!
