THE LIVERBIRDS 1 THE TOON 1 ***,PREMYAA LEEGUE 2020-2021

 Posted 'high noon bells' Sunday 25th April 2021

96th minute equaliser from Joe Willock! (Just to the right of the penalty spot!)


"FROM UTTER JOY TO ABJECT DISPAIR TO UTTER JOY!"

For the forst time in 5 months aa woz able to watch a match at a pub, rather than watch on mee laptop at home!

We managed to book 6 seats on the Strawberry's ootside balcony, within hockling distance of The Gallowgate stand!


Within 3 minutes of sitting doon with mee pint of John Smith's disaster struck when Salah scored on the turn to put the Mickey Mousers 1-0 up!

We feared a hammering at this point, but we stuck in and had a few good chances to equalise, but couldn't make the breakthrough!

The not so good view of the big screen az the sun deflects off the glass!

Dubravka in the Toon goal woz in top form and denied Liverpoool on a couple of occasions and we went in 1-0 at the break!

We fought tooth and nail in the 2nd period and again Dubravka woz wor savior with some excellent saves!

The drama came right at the end and deep into stoppage time, when Wilson scored a dramatic equaliser at The Anfield Road End!--We were in utter joy az pints were spilled and chairs knocked ower in the celebrations!

And then abject dispair az VAR ruled the goal oot az the baall had come off Wilson's arm!

Within a minute of aall this, Joe Willock scored with a wicked deflection az the Strawberry went ballistic once again!

It could anly happen to us!

Willock iz hugged by Brucey etc!

PS: The draw takes NUFC 9 points clear of the relegation zone and with games runnin' oot for the othaa teams below us, we are more or less safe, hopefully?
