"FROM ZERO TO HERO!"

6th minute: Henri Saivet gives the baall away to Arnautovic <(hope av spelt that reet?) and he runs through wor defence az though it didn't exist to plant the baall past Elliot in the Toon goal!
1-0 to The Jellied Eels Mob!

10th minute: Saivet gans from 'zero to hero' when he hits a superb free kick from 20yards oot to level things within 4 minutes of hiz defensive 'gaff' (many of us in the top tier in the away end didn't know that Saivet had scored and thought that it woz in fact Atsu, az we so far away from the pitch at the far end from the goal! (can we have some binoculars left on the seats next time---pleeeze?)
1-1

2 woodwork strikes from Gayle and Richie shud have put us forthaa aheed, but 'lady luck' deserted us once again, (just like against Everton) and we went in on level torms at the break!

53rd minute: The 2nd half started off at a blisterin' pace and within 8 minutes of the restart we went aheed when Diame sidefooted in in front of the 3,000 Toon fans behind that goal!
2-1 to The Toon

 61st minute: Then a penalty save from Elliot followed, before Atsu put us forthaa aheed just after the hour mark to send the 3,000 faithful into raptures!
3-1 to The Toon

69th minute: But we couldn't hang on and The Jellied Eels Mob pulled one back through Ayew and we had a nail bitin' last 20 minutes to endure az they pressed for the equaliser, but we 'hung on in' and won the 3 precious points which propels us up to 15th in the table, just one behind Sooothampton in 13th place---from 'them' doonwards just SIX points separate the rest of the pack, doon to bottom place!
