"IT COULD ANLY HAPPEN TO US!"
Havin' anly lost just ONE home game aall year and havin' gone FIVE games unbeaten, we took on a Sporz side in 2nd position and lookin' to finish above arch rivals Arsenal!
A breathtakin' 5-1 win in front of 52,000 plus with anly 10 men waz the outcome---in WOR favour, but we still find worsels in 'The Championship' next season----It could anly happen to NUFC!
The atmosphere waz truly amazin' considerin' that we were aalready relegated with Rafa's name continually shouted by the fans from forst whistle to last!---It could anly happen here!
Sporz must have thought that we would throw the 'towel in' considerin' wor demise, but they were in for a shock az we put in wor BEST performance of the season to bow oot of 'The Premyaa Leegue'!
19th minute: Wijnaldum fires in at The Leazes End from a Sissoko pass to put us 1-0 up!
39th minute: It's 2-0 az Mitrovic puts an unstoppable heeder past Lloris in the visitors goal after a pinpoint through baall from Toonsend foond hiz heed! (this goal waz scored az a plane with a pathetic message from The SMBs on the side, flew ower the groond!) <(THAT'S why they are called The SMBs!)
60th minute: Lamela pull a goal back for Sporz with a shot that somehow squeezed past Darlow in The Toon goal!
|THE TOON ATTACK THE GALLOWGATE END AZ THE SHADOW CREEPS OWER THE PITCH!|
67th minute: Mitrovic iz sent off for a 'studs up' challenge on Walker and we are doon to 10 men!
73rd minute: You would have thought that the team in 2nd top place would take advantage of the extra man ower the team 3rd bottom---but exactly the opposite happened when we were awarded a penalty at The Gallowgate End when Sissoko fell like a stone in the box to give us a dubious penalty!---Wijnaldum made ne mistteak from 12 yards oot and we were 3-1 up!
85th minute: It's 4-1!---az Toonsend hits the post and the baall rebounds oot and eventually finds Aarons on the far side of the 18 yard box---he fired a shot past Lloris into the far corner!
GAME OWER! The crowd sing , "RAFA BENITEZ!---WE WANT YOU TO STAY!" az he looked on dumbfounded from the dugout!
87th minute: Janmaat completes the rout with an easy chance to put the 10 men 5-1 up!-----The crowd chant, "5-1 to The Championship!"---"We've anly got 10 men!", in 'gallows humour style' az the Sporz end quickly empties!
'The Arse' beat 'The Hazbeenz and Villians' 4-0 to compound Sporz's misery and finished above them----and az the final whistle blew the crowd applauded and chanted Rafa's name---you would have thought that we had WON the leegue and NOT been demoted!
