'WOR FLAGS' DISPLAY AT THE LEAZES END
'POST' TRAUMATIC STRESS!
NUFC needed just a point against relegation threatened Lestaa and went straight for the jugular az we attacked The Leazes End goal!
Lestaa's strategy from the Start woz to put ELEVEN men behind the baall and hope for a breakaway goal!
Twice in quick succession we hit the post through Callum Wilson and then Miggy Almiron, but agonizingly both times the baall refused to gan into the net!----Their goalie aalso had a blinder to deny us a goal in the forst period and we went in norvously at 0-0 at the break!
Again in the 2nd half 'we went for it', but again Ivrsen in the Lestaa goal pulled off some ootstandin saves before Bruno hit the Gallowgate post at point blank range---again the baall 'refused' to gan into the goal!---Now aa naa wot 'post' traumatic stress' meeenz!
It nearly went horribly wrang deep into stoppage time when 'The Pope' in The Toon goal made a 'miracle' save from Castagne to rightly deny The Foxes a very undesorved victory az this woz their forst shot of the game!----After 5 minutes of injury time Marriner the ref finally blew for full time to very loud roars and relief from the 50,000 plus Toon fans present!
*Attendance: 52,152 (1,300 Basil Brushes!)
The Toon had nearly 80% possession and had 22 shots on goal to Lestaa'z ONE in stoppage time and we hit the post THREE times!
Against aall the odds we qualified for The Champions Leegue az The Liverbirds can nee langer catch us and the lowest we can finish iz in 4th place!---Unbeleeevable after last seasons relegation scrap!
We can now 'live the dream' of trips to Real Madrid, Barcelona and Bayern Munich after a 20 year gap!
