THE TOON 4 THE CANARY CUSTARD CREAMS 3 *** EFL 2016-2017

Posted 'high noon bells' Thorsday 29th September 2016
1st HALF ACTION AZ WE ATTACK THE GALLOWGATE END
(View from Milburn Stand balcony)

"VICTORY FROM THE JAWS OF DEFEAT AZ GAYLE BLOWS THE CANARIES AWAY!"

Wot can aa say aboot this game???--A game that started off in a howlin' gale, waz totally dominated by NUFC in the forst 20 minutes and we shud have been at least 5 (FIVE!) up by this time az we attacked the Gallowgate goal, hittin' the woodwork/near misses etc!

The break through came in the 24th when Matt Richie centred from the right and Gayle (appropriately, because of the wethaa conditions!) slotted the baall home!---and then disaster struck just 1 minute before the break when Gouffran pulled Brady doon to concede a penalty and Dorrans made ne misteakk from the spot!
(1-1 at half time)

A forthaa disaster then struck just minutes after the restart when Norwich took the lead when Jarone corled a shot past Darlow in the Toon goal!
Disaster number 3 soon came when wor visitors went 3-1 up when a deflected shot beat Darlow in the 70th minute!

Aall looked lost at this stage az the wind howled aroond the park but we didn't give up and Dwight Gayle replied aalmost immediately when a great pass from Shelvey foond hiz feet and he toe poked the baall home!

2nd HALF ACTION AZ WE ATTACK THE LEAZES GOAL

'The Custard Creams' then went into 'waste time mode' with some ridiculous antics and 6 minutes were added because off this!

By the 90th minute many fans had left includin' mee 5 year old grandson Zac who waz with hiz dad--but I told Jamie mee 6 year old grandson who waz with me, that we must stay to the bitter end!---and he waz rewarded with a goal in the 5th minute of stoppage time when Gouffran heeded home to salvage a point! --- But NO!--we wernt happy with this and in the SIXTH minute of added time Dwight Gayle unbelievably got the winner when he chested the baall doon from a Mitrovic pass to claim hiz hat-trick and send the crowd into ecstasy az the Canaries were blown away in the wind!!!!! BREATHTAKIN' STUFF!!!!

The win takes us up to 3rd place in the table just one point behind wor opponents and three behind 'uddersfield who sit in top spot!

How does that old song gan again?
"3-1 doon!, 4-3 up!---and its broon ale we will sup!"

Toon team: Darlow, Yedlin, Lascelles, Clark, Dummett (Atsu 92), Shelvey, Colback (Hayden 71), Richie, Gouffran, Diame (Mitrovic 71), Gayle
