"MIRACLE SAVES BY 'THE POPE' & MIGGY MAGIC!"
A game we had to win to keep in European contention---and a game we DID win----Just! The Toon were on top for lang periods and in total had 19 shots on goal, scorin twice!
The main taalkin point in the forst half woz in the 20th minute when Nick Pope miscontrolled <(we naa aall the big words'!) a back pass and collided with Wolves Jimenez in the box and for a few seconds we thought that a penalty might be awarded and (God forbid!) Pope would be sent off for the 2nd time in 2 home games!
Thankfully and miraculously The Pope stayed on the pitch az the ref waved 'play on', with nee VAR involved!
6 minutes later we took the lead at The Gallowgate End when Isak rose above the away defence to heed the baall into the top of the net from a Trippier free kick! HT 1-0 to NUFC
In the 2nd half Wolves were forced to come oot and 'The Pope' made some 'miracle' saves, the best one from a bullet free kick on the edge of the box!
And then disaster in wor defence when Trippier slipped tryin to clear the baall with Pope on the deck---and it fell nicely for Whang He Chang (who had just come on!) to hit the baall into an empty net for the equaliser!
Just when it looked az though we would have to settle for a draw, up stepped anothaa sub---this time Miggy Almiron to hit a great cross field shot into the far corner of the net at The Leazes End with 12 minutes left on the clock, to win the game for us!---The crowd went wild---more out of relief---az we picked up the 'precious' 3 points to leapfrog Livaapoool into 5th place and just 4 behind Sporz in 4th with TWO games in hand!
Can another 'miracle' possibly happen--and we qualify for the Champions Leegue next season???----Divvint rule it oot, although we need several new players to boost wor squad to have any chance!
We play 'The Friar Tuck Mob' of Nottingham away on Friday neet and a win would see us just that point from Sporz with that game in hand--and just 3 behind Moan U---who divvint play a Leegue game til they play us at the beginnin' of April, coz they are in FA Cup action next weekend!
A win against Moan U at SJP would see us leapfrog 'them' on goal difference az well! MIRACLES CAN HAPPEN!
Attendance: 52,240 (Less than 3,000 Wanabeeez!)
PS: Aa watched Match of the Day on Saturday and Sunday neet and it woz great to hear the crowds roar when a goal woz scored---and nee condescendin' commentary at aall to spoil it! (Just like when yoo actually attend a game!)
