BRUNO'S WINNER AND CELEBRATIONS!
A memorable goal that we will remember for years to come, woz scored by Bruno in the 95th minute with a superb divin' heeder at The Gallowgate End, from a Joe Willock cross, to seal a 2-1 victory and seeel virtual Premyaa Leegue survival!
It started off badly az Lestaa scored in the 19th minute through Lookman, who hit a set piece move shot from a corner by former Toon player Perez!
This silenced the Toon fans for a while az the Lestaa fans sang "This is a LOYBREE!" Grandson Jamie asked wot a 'loybree' woz and I told him that they had dodgy accents and were actually singin' LYBREE ('LIBRARY'!)
They were soon silenced however, when a scramble on the goal line at The Leazes End had Bruno toe poke the baall ower the line after Lestaa goalie Schmeichal failed to hold the baall and at forst the ref disallowed it, but woz told by the VAR to take a look at the incident on the pitch side monitor in front of The East Stand---and after wot seemed like an age pointed to the centre spot to indicate that he had changed hiz mind and the goal stood!----This awoke 'the sleepin' giants' az the groond erupted into a crescendo of noise, which enveloped aall 4 sides! (Apart from 2,500 of The Basil Brush Brigade' high up in The Leazes End)
The 2nd half woz a dour affair and looked certain to end in a draw, but Brazilian Bruno had othaa ideas and deep into stoppage time he send the crowd into overdrive with this last gap winner az he took hiz shirt off to celebrate in from of The Gallowgate faithful!
The Lestaa fans looked shattered az they sat in their very own LOYBREE with not a sound from them now! (ie: They wornt laffin anymore!) ↓↓↓↓↓
Bornley (who were winnin at West Ham) anly came away with a draw and so NUFC are now TWELVE points clear of the drop zone with games runnin oot!
"HAPPY EASTER INDEED!"
