"THE MUST WIN GAME WE DIDN'T WIN!"

Yet anothaa aaful performance from NUFC which meenz we havent won a home leegue game for 3 months now! (7 games!)

It shud have been ower by half time however, but 5 glorious chances went 'a beggin', 3 of them from Dwight Gayle who missed with 2 easy headers, one from Atsu and one from Perez who shot wide! (3 chances 1st half--2 chances 2nd half!)

1st HALF ACTION AZ WE ATTACK THE LEAZES GOAL

We paid the price for those misses when Swanzee took the lead in the 60th minute when Ayew heeded home at The Leazes End after a fine save by Darlow rebounded to him and he had the simple task of noddin' the baall into the net!

It didn't look good at this stage, especially with fans around us tellin us that most of wor relegation rivals were winnin'!
And then Joselu came on for the ineffective Gayle and within 6 minutes he had levelled things when he shot across the box at an angle and the baall went ower the line at The Gallowgate End to set 'the pressure cooker off' az the crowd roared in relief! 
THE TOON ATTACK THE GALLOWGATE GOAL

We couldnt find a second goal and we nearly lost it at 'the death' with Darlow oot of hiz goal. Luckily we had 2 defenders on the goal line and Yedlin cleared a shot from Bony that would surely have seen the 3 points heed back to sooth Wales!

Wor beloved? owner 'The Fat Controller' iz playin Russian roulettle, by NOT givin Rafa any money for much needed transfors for us to avoid the drop (again!)
When WILL he ever learn!????????????????????

Amazingleee we are STILL 14th in the table, but just 3 points above the drop zone and 4 points behind Evertin in NINTH place!
That's TWELVE teams in danger of bein' relegated!---UNREAL!

Toon team: Darlow, Yedlin, Lascelles, Clark, Dummett, Atsu, Shelvey (Merino 82), Diame, Ritchie, Perez, Gayle (Joselu 64)

Attendance: 51,444 (includin' 1,000 Swanzee fans huddled in the top corner of The Leazes End!)
