If ever there woz a reason for wor takeower to happen, then this woz it!
A game NUFC were totally outplayed in and we were SO lucky to get away with a 5 goal hidin'---it could so easily have been a 9 or 10 goal defeat, we were that bad!
It took The Blue Moonies presicely 10 minutes to get the first goal when Jesus (NOT the one from Bethlehem!), side footed home, from a Silva pull back, with wor defence 'aall at sea'!
It woz soon 2-0 after 20 minutes through Marez and it should have been so many more, but somehow we managed to get to the break just 2 goals doon!

VIEW FROM ROSIE'S UPSTAIRS WINDOW!
And as for WOR attacking formation? I didnt even realise that Joelinton woz playin until they did a 'close up' on him in the 25th minute! (Honest!)
The 2nd period for 'The bottle green brigade' woz just az bad (we played in wor horrible bottle green change kit!) and we well and truly 'bottled it' for certain!
NUFC did actually score!---an own goal from Fernandez, that iz, to put us 3 behind! (Fernandez woz aalso responsible for wor anly effort on target, a weak heeder in the forst half!)
The 4th followed soon after, through a Silva free kick on the edge of the box--- and the final nail in wor coffin came in the 1st minute of stoppage time from Sterling, to 'put us in wor place'! (13th in the leegue table, actually!)
|A FEW PINTS OF 'THIS' TO DROWN MEE SORROWS!|
And as for 'Broken Nose Bruce', who it's said iz in contention for the 'Manager of the year award'--dont be daft and even 'fink' aboot it!
The Daily Mail summed it up porfectly: "They folded up like a deck chair on a windy beach!"
