THE BIGGEST FLAG IN FUTBAALL IZ UNFURLED
AT THE GALLOWGATE END !
'THE INJUSTICE OF IT AALL!"
If yoo were a neutral fan then yoo would have had a great days entertainment az both teams went hammer and tongs from the 'off'!
Forst blood woz to wor visitors who took the lead at The Gallowgate End in the 13th minute when an unmarked Van Dijk heeded past Dubravka in the Toon goal to give them the lead.
We fought back and equalised in the 20th minute when Atsu fired home from close range at The Leazes End after Rondon had had hiz shot stopped on the line by the hand of Alexander Arnold!
An instant dismissal shud have followed but because Atsu had scored the rebound the ref took no action against him?---The injustice of it aall!
The Mickey Mousers retook the lead through Salah 8 minutes later with a shot from inside the box!---HT 2-1 to them!
We came oot with 'aall guns blazin' in the 2nd half and equalised again in the 54th minute trough Rondon who hit a sweet left footer past Alisson in The Liverbirds goal to send the crowd into raptures!
This 'end to end game' ended with a dive from Liverpoool's Fabinho az Ritchie shadowed him!---Richie protested loudly to the linesman who woz close by, but the free kick woz given anyway!
The resultin' free kick 4 mins from time woz heeded in by Origi at The Leazes End---the injustice of it aall!
There woz then fightin' below us in the corporate areas of The Milburn Stand az Liverpoool fans had managed to get tickets for those areas and who celebrated their winnin goal!
8 minutes of stoppage time (Salah woz stretchered off) meant a nailbitin' time for the 3,200 Scousers in level 7 of The Leazes End, (and elsewhere!) before the ref finally blew for full time!
The result and results elsewhere meeenz that NUFC can finish ne higher than 13th and ne lower than 15th with 1 game left away to Fulim next Sunday. (we are currently 14th)
Liverpoool move 2 points clear at the top, with just 1 game to gan---but of course if Man City win their 2 remain' games then they will be champions again!
