ISAK'S PENALTY TO SEAL THE VICTORY
"FIVE IN A ROW!"
For the forst time in many a year aa missed the kick off coz the queues were massive to get in!---Aa missed the forst 2 minutes despite leavin The Leazes End Club (Companions) 40 minutes before the kick off, joinin the queue 5 minutes later!---Total chaos with some fans still ootside 30 minutes after the kick off!---NUFC reely shud get this sorted az the didgy ticket on phones simply take too lang to get in, with some not workin! (There woz nee issues with the plastic card season tickets we used to have!)
For the fifth time in 14 days we conceded zero goals and gained wor thord Premyaa Leegue scalp in a row! The 5 games in question are: Brentfaad 1-0, AC Milan 0-0, Sheff U 8-0, Man C 1-0 and now Bornleee 2-0!
It took just 14 minutes for us to make the breakthrough when Trippier dispossessed Ramsey just ootside the box and gave it to Miggy Almiron who hit a screamer into the corner of the net at The Leazes End to send the crowd potty!
There were many more chances to increase the lead but somehow lady luck woz on wor visitors side and we went in just one goal to the good, when it shud have been at least 4!
The 2nd period woz just the same with 'The Hillbillies' hardy crossin the halfway line, but they did have a 'purple patch' when an underserved equaliser nearly came aboot when a shot woz acrobatically pushed ower the bar by 'The Pope' in the Toon goal, for a rude wake up caall!
Al Dakhil then upended Anthony Gordon in the box in the 77th minute and the ref pointed straight to the spot!
Alexander the Great (Isak) took the penalty, sendin the Bornlee keeper the wrang way to double wor lead and end any hope of wor visitors makin a comeback! (They havvint won at SJP since 1976!)
More chances went a beggin and the final score woz just 2-0, rather than 6-0, which would have been a fairer ootcome!
Attendance: 52, 163 (2,500 Hillbilies in level 7 of The Leazes End)
