"IT'S WORK IN PROGRESS!--IT WILL TAKE TIME!"
(Broken Nose Bruce after 4-1 defeat)
Normal sorvice haz been resumed at St. James' Park! After the 3-1 win ower Bornley at home in wor last game, we flash back to wor previous home game to that, when we lost by 3 clear goals to Brightin (3-0)
It aall started so well!---we had hardly taken wor seats in Rosies Bar when a wicked deflection off Moan Us Luke Shaw in the very forst minute, from Emile Krafth's shot, gave us a 1-0 lead at The Leazes End! This brought delayed reaction cheers from the NUFC diehards assembled, just a stones throw from SJP!
And then the reality!----we sat back and let Moan U rain shots onto Karl Darlow in the Toon goal, in the blind hope that he would have a 'blinder'!---And he DID!
Unfortunatly it wasnt enough and after Harry McGure heeded an equaliser in the 23rd minute, we sat back to try and save a point!
A disallowed Moan U goal for offside just before this and a saved penalty from Darlow were aall in vain az wor visitors hit THREE goals in the final FIVE minutes of the game to win it 4-1 (and deservedly so!)
After the match wor beleagered manager Broken Nose Bruce said: "We will have bumps in the road, but we will keep on working at it!" (More like LARGE POT HOLES!) and "It's a work in progress!---It will take time!"
But just HOW MUCH TIME Steve???---You've been in charge for 1 year and 3 months!!!!!!
