"ONE NIL DOON----TWO NIL UP!"
A virtuoso (we naa aall the big words!) performance from NUFC saw a 5 goal thrashin to sting The Bees from Brentfaad (sic!) at SJP yesterday afternooon!
It started off badly az we went behind in the 10th minute (or so we thought) until a VAR decision ruled Mbeumo's goal oot for offside to loud cheers from the Toon fans and dispair for the travellin Brentfaad fans!
The 'real' goal sequences were az follows:
21st minute: Bruno sends a bullet heeder off the far post at The Leazes End from a Trippier cross to open the scorin'!
28th minute: Callum Wilson intercepts a mistayk by a Brentford defender to cross the baall to Jacob Murphy for an easy sidefoot shot into the back of the net! 2-0
This promted some fans behind me to sing: "One nil doon, two nil up!" (if that makes sense?)
2-0 HT UP!
53rd minute: A hand baall by Dan Burn in the box gives Brentfaad a penalty which woz taken by ex Toon player Ivan Toney, who sent Nick Pope in the Toon goal the wrang way to pull a goal back! 2-1
56th minute: Bruno runs through the Brentfaad defence to fire home a glorious right foot shot to restore wor 2 goal margin to deafenin cheers from the home faithful!
82nd minute: An attempted back pass to the Brenfaad keeper by Pinnock iz intercepted by Miggy Almiron who roonded the keeper to put us 4-1 up!
90th minute: Pinnock's nightmare continues az he slices a cross into hiz own goal to complete the rout to loud cheers from the 50,000 Toon fans!
After the match we heeded for The Bodega where a Brentfaad fan with a large bee on the front of hiz t shirt caalled Leon, foond oot that I did this website: "I hope you put in wot a dead atmosphere it woz from you lot!" "Where woz your famous atmosphere?", he added!
Me 'finks' Leon needs to buy a hearin aid sharpish!
Attendance: 52,067 (2,000 Bees who were well and truely 'STUNG'!)
*Footnote: At the time of writin' we have moved up to 5th in the table!
It's 88 years since Brentfaad last won at SJP
And on this showin' it will be anothaa 88 years before they get the chance to win here again!
