" DEFEAT FROM THE JAWS OF VICTORY!"
Wot can we say?----1-0 up after 25 minutes through Evaatin fan Anthony Gordon with a fine run and shot and then 3 minutes later Van Dijk woz shown a straight red for clatterin into Isak and they were doon to 10 men!
Several chances to finish the mickey mousers off failed to find the net, with Almiron hittin the post at The Leazes End----Fine margins, az it could easily have rebounded into the net, but didn't! HT 1-0 to us!
The 2nd half woz the same with Almiron again hittin the post, this time at The Gallowgate End, but again it rebounded ootside the goal!
And then 'the horror show' near the end, when with just 10 minutes to gan, Numez raced doon the pitch on The East Stand side to fire a raspin shot past The Pope to level the scores!
Worse woz to follow when again Numez raced doon the same side of the pitch after a Bruno misstayk, to hit an identical shot past The Pope deep into stoppage time, to break wor hearts and send the 3,000 Liverbirds in level 7 into raptures!
3 points hoyed away at the end, against 10 men woz not wot we wanted or expected!
We must now pick worsels up for the lang trip to Brightin on Saturday----train strikes and aaalll!
Attendance: 52,214 (3,000 very happy Scousers!) (49,214 stunned Geordies!)
