THE TOON 2 NE WHERE NEAR BRIGHTON 0 *** EFL 2016-2017

Updated '11:05am bells' Munday 29th August 2016
SHELVEY FREE KICK GOAL (2nd half)
*Geordie Times excluuusive!

"LET US GO FOURTH!"

A thoroughly entertainin' game waz won 2-0 with 2 brill set piece goals from Jamaal Lascelles and Jonjo Shelvey.
To be honest, before the game aa would have been happy with a point against Chris Hughton's 'high flyers', given the fact that both wor proven strikers Mitrovic and Gayle were oot injured!

But aa needn't have worried az we put on wor best display of the season so far to push us up to the dizzy heights of FOURTH place in the table!
*'Ne Where Near Brighton' had anly lost 1 oot of their last 23 games but a fearless Toon side put them to the sword!
A Matt Richie free kick at The Gallowgate End foond the heed of Lascelles and he nodded past the visitors keeper to put us 1-0 up!
*(We say 'Ne Where Near Brighton' az their new ground ISN'T!)
LASCELLES GOAL (1st half)
*Geordie Times excluuusive!

Gouffran then hit the crossbar with a thorty yard screamer az we went for the 'jugular'!  HT 1-0 to 'us'!
The referee waz absolutleee cr*p and handed oot a stream of yellow cards to NUFC player for trivial offences---If anybody waz gannin to beat us it wasn't Brighton--but HIM!

We attacked The Leazes End in the 2nd half and the killer goal came in the 63rd minute when Shelvey hit an unstoppable free kick from outside the box, which gave their keeper 'ne chance'!

Just before that Brighton had a player sent off for a 2nd bookable offence and with Shelvey's goal the contest waz ower!

More chances went 'a beggin' and we had the settle for a 2-0 win which moves us up into the 'play off positions' in 4th place and of course a 4th win in a row---things are startin' to look UP --in more ways than one!
