Posted 'high noon bells' Sunday 16th October 2016

THE TOON ATTACK THE LEAZES END (1st half)

"THE TOON SMELL THE HONEY TO STING THE BEES!"

Yet anothaa game when the opposition thought it waz their 'cup final' and Brentfaad brought nearly 3,000 bees from "west Landan" who were housed in level 7 of The Leazes End
(This iz approx. one thord of their average home gates!)

We started off 'like a hoose on fire' and soon took the lead when a shelve pin-point pass foond the heed of Ciaran Clark and he heeded past the Brentfaad keeper in The Leazes goal
It waz soon 2-0 when Dwight Gayle fired home from the edge of the box!
we were rampant at this stage and a 3rd goal goal waz disallowed for a 'hand-baall against Perez after he deflected a shot into the net from a Gouffran shot! 2-0 at half time!
'CITY CENTRE VIEW' OWER THE EAST STAND
(View from Milburn Stand)

Again we came oot with aall guns blazin' and it waz anly a matter of time til we got wor thord goal! A Shelvey cross waz tapped into the net by Gayle for hiz 2nd of the game and it looked 'aall ower' at this point!
But this IZ NUFC and aalmost immediately wor visitors pulled one back with a heeder to send their travellin' contingent wild with delight high up in the gods!

A bit of 'nail bitin' then followed az Brentfaad looked for anothaa goal, but we held oot to claim the 3 points and move up to 2nd place in the table!
