"EDDIE THE EAGLE----SLAYER!"
From bein' 19th and 5 points adrift of safety when 'Steady Eddie' took ower last November, to 11th and 15 points above the drop zone now, iz a truely amazin' stat and NUFC will now become the ANLY team to be bottom of the Premyaa Leegue before Xmas to escape the drop!
"WOW!---WOT A TORNAROOND!"
Aalso this woz wor SIXTH Premyaa Leegue home win in a row, which iz anly matched by Bobby Robson in 2004!
We started the game off well against The Eagles of Palliss and had a few orly chances az we attacked The Leazes goal!
The breakthrough came after a magnificent volley from Bruno foond 'Miggy' Almiron runnin doon the East Stand wing and he cut inside to send a left foot shot into the far corner of the goal from a tight angle, to send 51,000 Toon fans wild with delight!
Miggy then ran ower to the East Stand with hiz shirt off and jumped ower the advertisin' hoardings to be greeted by the fans in the front row who hugged him az we aall celebrated!
The 2nd half woz a 'backs to the waall' affair az Palliss strode for the equaliser---and they came close several times az they battered wor defence---but couldnt find a way past!
The crowd whistled wildly az the 4 minutes of stoppage time seemed to take 4 hours!---But finally the ref blew for full time to to relief and delight of aall those of black n white persuasion!
Miggy woz the SEVENTEENTH different player to score for NUFC this season in The Premyaa Leegue!!!! (See stats at bottom!)
'Steady Eddie' for manager of the month?---More like manager of the YEAR!
