"AFTER THE LORD MAYORS SHOW!"
NUFC started off brightly az we attacked The Gallowgate goal and within a minute we were one-nil up after Miggy Almiron crossed a baall for Joe Willock to fire home!---But wait a minute!----The goal went to VAR az Miggy's cross woz possibly oot of play!
After a short spell it woz conformed that the baall WOZ ower the byline and the goal woz ruled oot!
Then!---Just seconds later!----A through baall from Sean Langstaff foond Callum Wilson and he raced towards the goal before hittin a great shot past Fabianski in *'The Jellied Eels Mobs' goal to FINALLY put us one-nil up!----Nee VAR needed this time!
Just when we thought that this might torn into a cricket score we eased off and lets wor visitors off the hook az they pressed for an equaliser!
West 'am arnt a bad side and their leegue position near the relegation zone will surely get better!----They attacked the Leazes goal and a corner kick from Rice in the 32nd minute eventually foond Paqueta a few inches oot and aa knew he couldnt possibly miss from that distance az he tapped the baall into the net! ONE-ONE!
The 2nd half woz littered by wayward passes from us and when new boy Anthony Gordon came on at the mid point of the half to rapturous applause from the home faithful he made a great through pass to Wilson, but he woz too slow az he lined up hiz shot and a West 'am defender kicked the baall away just az he woz aboot to score wor 2nd goal!
Wilson had another chance late on when he had a weak heeder easily saved by their goalie and the chance woz gone!
We just couldnt get that winnin goal and had to settle for a point instead!----We slipped to 4th in the table az Moan U had won orlier on, but on the bright side we are the ANLY team oot of the 92 Premyaa Leegue and Futbaall Leegue sides to have lost anly ONE game this season, az The Arse lost at Evaatin to increase their losses to 2 games!
Aalso we are unbeaten in 16 succesive Leegue games to extend wor club record!
Attendance: 52,256 (3,200 Jellied Eels!)
*The Jellied Eels Mob---an explanation: Jellied Eels are a delicacy in the east end of London where West 'am come from!
