"DANCIN' AND SINGIN' IN THE RAIN!"
This iz a great day for everybody connected with NUFC az this iz the day that we have cemented wor place back in the upper reaches of The Premyaa Leegue after many years in the wilderness at the wrang end of the table in relegation scraps!
Callum Wilson opened the scorin in the 31st minute when he clashed with Sporz goalie Lloris ootside the box and he lobbed the baall into the net with the keeper lyin poleaxed on the groond! VAR conformed the goal woz OK after protests from Sporz players!
Miggy Almiron doubled wor lead 9 minutes later when he took a pass from Longstaff and roond a home defender to double wor lead and we went in 2-0 UP at the break!
Durin the half time interval the sky torned grey and black and thunder and lightning lit up the heavens!
Aall of a sudden it started to pelt doon with torrential rain of biblical propotions, az the wind blew it into the stands!
Within seconds we were drenched to the bone and aall of a sudden 100s made for the shelter of the concourses! (Put it this way! If a'd jumped into the river Tyne fully clothed aa couldn't have been any wetter and aa half expected Noah's Ark appear on the pitch at any time!) 🠜Slight exaggeration!
Mee so caalled waterproof jacket woz soaked through az woz mee jeans and boxer shorts! I woz in row 15 and made mee way to the very back row of the away section to try a keep dry! A billion pound stadium where at least 30,000 of the 60,000 plus crowd got a good drenching! (The worst and heaviest downpour at a match av ever known!)
The fear woz that if the rain kept falling so heavily that the pitch wud become waterlogged and the match abandoned!
Thankfully the rain eased off and the 2nd half started!
Harry Kane pulled one back in the 54th minute, but instead of defendin' we stayed on the attack to try and score another, rather than 'parkin the bus'!
The 'new' Newcasil have come a lang way in the last 12 months!
The win lifts us up to a Champions Leegue position in 4th place az soaken fans and players danced and celebrated wildly at the end of the match!
"Dancin' and singin' in the rain!"
Just one undeserved defeat at Livaapoool oot of 13 played (12 Premyaa Leegue, 1 Leegue Cup) make very impressive reading for the new regime!
We won't single any particular player oot for praise---they were aall outstandin'!*Attendance:61,726 (30,000 rather wet fans!)
THE TOON ARE BACK! YOU'D BETTER BELEEEVE IT!
