"WELCOME TO THE PREMYAA!"
Wor forst Premyaa Leegue game of the season torned oot to be a very one sided affair az NUFC attacked The Gallowgate goal in the forst half! It woz relentless az we missed chance after chance durin this half against a p*ss poor Forest side, who have foond oot straight away that The Premyaa Leegue standard iz a lang lang way above The Championship! (The fact that former Toon failure Jack Colback woz in the Forest team, told me that they wornt very good from 'the off'!)
The 2nd half woz the same az we pounded The Leazes goal this time and finally (finally!) we made the breakthrough in the 58th minute when out of the blue, centre back Fabian Schar raced doon the East Stand side of the pitch and hit an unstoppable piledriver past the hapless Forest keeper Dean Henderson!
It woz aall ower bar the shoutin' 20 mins later when Joelinton sent a cross in from The Milburn Stand side of the groond and Callum Wilson woz there to flick the baall into the corner of the net to secure the 3 points!
A great start to the season and in complete contrast to the start of last season when we conceded 4 goals at home to 'The Jellied Eels Mob' of West Ham!----In total we had 23 shots on goal----more than Broken Nose Bruce's side had in hiz final 8 Prem games in charge!
Things are definitely lookin' up!
