“'EIGHT' DAYS A WEEK!”
It’s been a great week for NUFC fans after wor exploits in Milan just ower a week ago and 8 goal demolition of Sheff U last Saturday!---The 3rd great result in the last 8 days happened last neet when we inflicted European champions Man City's forst defeat of the domestic season, to unbridled joy from the players and fans alike at the final whistle (see above video!)
It haz to be said that 'The Blue Moonies' were the better team in the forst half az Toon manager 'Steady Eddie' had made TEN changes to the startin line up from the 0-8 thrashin' of 'The Blade Runners' 4 days before!
The 2nd half woz different though az we dominated most of the half with the vital---and one and anly goal--comin in the 52nd minute, when Joelinton sent a cross in at The Gallowgate End and the baall ended up in front of 'Alexander the Great' (Isak) and from 1 yard oot he had the simple task of placin the baall into the net, to send most of the 50,000 plus crowd crazy with delight!
FANS REACTION TO ISAK’S GOAL!
Man City tried to find a way back, but their team--who had aalso made major changes, couldnt make the breakthrough and we held on to gain a place in the 4th roond of the competition!
We went to The Leazes End (Companions) club near The East Stand after the game to celebrate with a few 'liquid lubrications' and to watch the draw for the 4th roond on the telly!
Ex mackem failure Don Goodman picked the away teams oot of the bowl and when Man U came oot az the home team, he seemed to look into the bowl and grabbed number 16, which woz the NUFC baall !
Woz it a fix?---anly Goodman and the Toon fans know that it WOZ and so we must play the other half of Manchester away in a few weeks time!
Attendance:: 51,000 (4,900 Blue Moonies)
