"A HARD EARNED POINT!"
Havin dragged meesel oot of bed after the previous nightshift to Manchester (see Macclesfeeeld report below this one) it woz off again to 'The Central' (station) to catch the '1:30 bells' train to Liverpool, arrivin' in good time for a few 'gargels' before kick off in 'The Excelsior' and 'The Ship' next door!
It woz then a taxi ride to Goodison Park, some 3 miles from the centre of Liverpool!
A hard earned point woz the outcome of this game played in heavy rain for most parts.
We took the lead in the 19th minute at The Park End when a Murphy cross foond Rondon who wellied the baall past Pickford (the man we love to hate!)
NUFC held on to the lead for 20 mins and then Evertin equalised through Ricalison who fired past Dubravka at The Gladys Street End!
It looked at this point that we would get beat but we are made of sterner stuff these days and held on in the 2nd half to claim the valuable point and propel us up one rung on the ladder to 14th place!
This meenz that in the last 6 games we have won 3, drawn 2, and lost 1!
Not bad for a team in crisis!
After the match we heeded back to the centre of Livepool for a few gargels in 'Ma Egertons' before retiring for the neet in wor hotel near Lime Street station "ZZZZZzzzzz!"
Next morning we heeded for 'The Fall Well' for some 'breakies' (washed doon with a pint of 'Smiths') before catchin the '10:30 bells' train back yem!
And of course---anothaa 'night truck run' back to Manchester!--------"Its aall go-go-go!"
