"REVENGE IZ SWEET!"
For the first time ever, ah woz confident that NUFC could beat Moan U at their place—-but when ah saw the team line up, with just 3 of the players who started at Wolves last Saturday included, ah had 2nd thoughts!—how wrang ah woz!
Dead simple—we started off on the front foot and never took it off the excelorator!
5th minute: Matt 🎯 Targett pulls up with wot looks like a hamstring injury and iz replaced by Almiron (which turns oot to be a blessing in disguise 🥸!) ⬇️
28th minute: Livramento races doon the pitch and sends a pin point pass to Miggy Almiron who holds off a home defender to hit a sweet left foot shot across the goal into the far corner of the net in front of The Stratford End!
36th minute: Joe Willock sends a cross into the box and McGuire heeds oot, straight to 19 year old Lewis Hall, who hits a great left footed shot into the corner of the goal to double wor lead and get his first senior goal for the Toon!
The 2nd period woz the same and on the hour mark Joelinton puts a foot in to win the baall, which falls to Joe Willock—He gans on a run and hits a fantastic shot past in the Milan U goal to send the 7,000 plus Toon fans behind that goal into meltdown!
It’s at this point that their fans get oot of their seats and (virtually!) stampede towards the exits! (See top picture!)
It seemed unreal!—it woz 10 years since we last won here and just the 2nd time we have won here in 51 years!
A game that will live in wor memories forevermore!
Attendance: 72,484 (7,300 jubilant Toon fans!)
PS: The draw for the qwaataa final wasn’t kind (again!) and paired us with Chelsea—AWAY!
