On a rain sodden pitch NUFC totally dominated wor Italian opponents and it took us just 4 minutes to break the deadlock when Perez fired home at The Leazes End from a through pass from new boy Manquillo

Wor lead woz doubled just 8 miutes later when  Shelvey knocked the baall doon the left hand side of the pitch and Atsu slid the baall into the net!

After this we shud have had more goals az attack after attack followed, but we couldn't find the net again and went in just 2-0 up at the half time interval

Verona played a bit better in the 2nd period but The Toon were still the much better team and the woodwork woz hit by Richie at The Gallowgate End where we were situated

The game ended 2-0 but it shud have been 5 or 6 to 'us'!

TOON TEAM (that started!) Elliot, Manuillo, Lejeune, Clark, Dummett, Richie, Hayden, Shelvey, Atsu, Perez, Mitrovic
'Super subs'!: Darlow, Gamez, Lascelles, Mbemba, Aarons, Murphy, Merino, ,De Jong, Diame (20 players used!)

Attendance: just under 24,000 includin' 300 or so 'Hellas Angels' who were jammed into the corner section between The Leazes End and East Stand
