Posted from 'high noon bells'onwards, Friday 28th April 2023 on train back from Liverpoool
The forst half wasnt ower clever but we managed to take a 1-0 lead into the half time break when Wilson fired home at The Glydiss Street End after Joelinton's shot woz parried to him by Little Arms Pickford!
HT 1-0 to us!
We were on the front foot in 2nd half az we attacked The Park End and doubled wor lead in the 72nd minute when a pinpoint cross from Willock foond Joelinton who heeded home from very close range!
It woz soon 3-0 when Wilson hit a glorious right footed shot from ootside the box past 'Little arms' from a Bruno pass!
At this point the Evaatin fans left in their droves az the Toon fans celebrated!
They pulled one back in the 80th through McNeil but from the kick off super sub Alexander the Great (Isak) jinked past 3 defenders on the byline to cross for Murphy, who had the easiest of chances to hit home past the disparin mackem goalie to put the icing on the cake! (Er! We originally said Willock had scored, not Murphy!-- Special thanx to Marzzy for spottin anothaa Geordie Times dilibrit misstayk!)
A brilliant goal by Schar woz then ruled oot az Dan Burn woz offside!
Anthony Gordon had came on az sub late on to muted boos from wot woz left of the home fans and loud cheers from the Toon faithful!
Great news then came through that Moan U had let a 2 goal advantage slip az they drew 2-2 at Sporz!
This moves us 2 points clear of them and 8 points clear of Villa in 5th place!
The Champions Leegue iz within wor grasp!
Attendance not given but groond woz full at the start and 3qwaataz empty at the finish! (3,000 delirious Toon fans!)
