Gel, Goals & George
Is it just me, or has it seemed like ages since we’ve played a game?

A daft quiz on the message board provided sparse entertainment for last weekend without a game, however it turns out that some Carrvillians entertained themselves at Matalan, Tescos, TK Maxx, ‘choosing paint’, or in the ladies toilets at Brandon Club.

Passy was at work, nevertheless he texted his latest quiz question: Who played centre forward for The Toon in the nineties and also played in goal once for Manure? This was discussed for a short while as we were late setting off – Chrissy & Craig were at The Spar getting some hair gel, ‘wet look’ of course. Initially I thought that Greeny must have been out of sorts as he was so quiet on the way through. Turns out Chrissies new ‘phone was providing the entertainment. The McGuiniss brothers, however read a leaflet on ‘Discovering Islam’ to each other!! Say what you like about Ian, I love it when he turns up – it saves me having to collect and count the bus fares. Guff has obviously had the heating repaired on the bus, just in time for the warmer weather!

Quote of the week: ‘Parker’s been running around in circular triangles’ !!! Can you guess who is responsible for that gem?

It was into the Irish Centre for 7.15. Squeezing in an extra pint meant that we were slightly late heading up to the ground and I just got in in time to see the first goal. 5 mins and Milner opened the scoring with a spectacular strike. George was at the toilet! The goal was extra special as Milner dodged McCann’s pathetic attempt at a challenge and left Sorensen with no chance of making a save. 1-0.

Two minutes later and Milner crossed for Dyer to steer a header over Sorensen to double the lead. George was getting a Bovril! Surely this meant that we would now relax, control the game, take the sting out of Villa and canter home. However in true Newcastle United style we let them off the hook. Harper miss-kicked a goal kick into touch and this somehow seemed to spur Villa into realising that a comeback was possible. Harper then made some great saves as Villa began to take control towards half time.

The second half began much the same as the first had finished with Villa in control. The inevitable happened on 59 mins when Carew (who had looked dangerous all game) scored with a header. Villa were still creating the best chances as the minutes ticked by, although Parker did produce a great effort tha came back off the bar. However the points were sealed in the last minute when Milner played the ball for Sibierski to drive home from inside their box. George was outside at the hamburger stall!

The three points move us up to ninth.

Butt seemed to sustain a bad knee injury and it was worrying to see Dyer pull up holding his back, the last thing we need is more injuries….

…the answer to Passy’s question…… The Honey Monster!!!!!!

His gaffer needs to find him some work to do, he’s got far too much time on his hands!!
