SHOT PAST THE PALACE KEEPER
(Geordie Times excluuusive pic from The Milburn Stand balcony!)
For the forst time in ower 3 months we are oot of the bottom 3 thanx no less to Andros Toonsend and Karl Darlow!
Pardew's Palace came for a point---ne more--ne less--and they frustrated the crowd by continual time wastin' in the forst period!
The major breakthrough came in the 58th minute @ The Leazes End when Andros Toonsend hit an unstoppable free kick from the edge of the box to beat Hennessey in the Palace goal--aall ends up!
This sent most of the 52,000 crowd into raptures az the roof waz nearly lifted off the stadium!
A disgraceful penalty decision came in the 70th minute when the visitors were awarded a bafflin' penalty for 'hand baall' accordin' to the ref???
Yohan Cabaye <(remember him?) stepped up to take it and hiz spot kick waz brilliantly saved by Karl Darlow who dived to hiz left to parry the baall away to safety---and this save drew even LOUDER NOISE from the Toon faithful!
6 minutes stoppage time waz played az we bit wor fingers and tore wor hair oot and finally the ref blew for full time az we celebrated wildly---News that The SMBs had drawn at Stoke due to an injury time penalty and later on that Norwich had lost to 'The Arse' meant that we had climbed oot of the 'abyss'!---although both wor rivals have a game in hand!
"Bring on The Villa!" <(next Saturday away!)
