THE MOMENT ALMIRON HITS THE LEFT FOOTED VOLLEY TO WIN THE GAME!
(GEORDIE TIMES EXCLUUUSIVE PIC FROM ROW 2 OF
THE MILBURN STAND BALCONY!)
"IT ANLY TAKES 131,460 SECONDS TO SCORE A GOAL!"
Yet again it woz anothaa pitiful performance durin the first half at St. James' Park yesterday! "ZZZZzzzz!!!"
('Mr. Hyde' won it, hands doon!)
The 2nd half wasn't much better, with Palace gannin close and dominatin' for lang periods!
However, we did have chances az well and then just 7 minutes from the end of the game, which had 'nil-nil' written aall ower it, up stepped Miggy Almiron to volley home from a Andy Carroll doonward heeder in the penalty area, to score his first ever goal for The Toon after 26 barren games and 2,191 minutes field time!
Brian Clough once famously said, "It only takes a second to score a goal!"----or in this case 131,460 seconds!
And did the crowd roar their approval az the roof woz nearly lifted off The Gallowgate End where Miggy scored! He ran towards the Milburn Stand with hiz shirt off and celebrated with a young fan az they hugged each othaa!
We were SO happy for him and more importantly we move into 9th place in the table and 10 points above the drop zone---Aalso we are just 4 points from a Champions Leegue place and are unbeaten in the last 8 home Premyaa Leegue games!
Merry Xmas indeed!
