"SO CLOSE, BUT SO FAR AWAY!" (Steady Eddie after the game!)
A game we just had to win to keep the gap between us, Moan U and Livaapoool----And a game we won in the end quite easily!
NUFC attacked The Leazes End in the forst half and laid seige to the Brightin goal!---The Breakthrough came in the 22nd minute when a corner by Trippier foond the heed of Brightin's Undav and az he attempted to back heed it oot for a corner, it instead ended up in the visitors net to loud roars from the Toon faithful!
It woz soon 2-0 when Dan Burn soared above the Brightin defence to heed home across the goal from a cross deep into stoppage time! HT 2-0 to us!
The 2nd half started off just like the forst az we went for the jugular once again!----However the norves were janglin' in the 50th minute when Undav received a through baall and he raced away with Schar unable to catch him, to fire home and half the deficit! (hiz 2nd goal of the game!)
This woz totally against the run of play az Brightin played a dangerous game by passin the baall to each othaa near the box!
Relief woz finally on hand near the end when Callum Wilson raced forward splittin their defence, to place an accurate shot just inside the post to put NUFC 3-1 up!
It wasnt ower yet and just a minute later it woz 4-1 when Wilson squared to Bruno who said "thank you very much" to place the baall into the goal and send the groond into meltdoon! FT 4-1 to us!
Aall we need to dee nuw iz beat relegation threatened Lestaa at SJP next Munday to qualify for The Champions Leegue!--- Shud Livaapool lose to Villa at Anfeeeld on Saturday, then we will qualify withoot kickin a baall!----Aaltogether now!
"TELL MEE MAA, MEE MAA!, AA NEED THREE HUNDRED QUID!---A'M OFF THE REAL MADRID!---TELL MEE MAA, MEE MAA!" (This iz mee dream!--- to see us play in The Bernabeu Stadium!)
Attendance: 52,122 (1,000 Seagulls)
*FOOTNOTE: Aa managed to get loyal Toon fan 'John from Ireland' a ticket for the game and put it in mee wallet----Aa still had the Leeedz away ticket az well from last Saturday and by misstayk aa gave him the LEEEDZ ticket instead!----Toon fan 'Sarnie Steve' asked for a look to see where he woz sittin and couldnt figure oot where The West Stand Paddock woz???----He then realised that it woz the LEEEDZ ticket, which looks very similar to a Toon ticket, az yoo can see!
It doesn't bear 'fink'in aboot, if he had tried to get in with the Leeedz ticket!-----Aall that way and torned away at the tornstiles!!!!🥶
