It’s funny how a day that will live long in the memory of many a NUFC fan brigs back memories of near death experiences although to be fair I could have fallen that 20 or feet onto solid concrete and I’d have died a happy man. Unfortunately, or fortunately for me I guess, it was only 5-1 that day. Only 5-1 against Sunderland.
Let me fill you in a bit on why I almost died, numerous times. Some of you may have heard this before so if you have please forgive me and let me explain this one to those that haven’t. I was sat in Gallowgate Upper, right next to and right on top of one of entrance/exits to the concourse. This was all well and good. I wasn’t driving so I was pretty steamed and I’d met a few people before hand, like Richietoon for example.
The problems began when Kevin Nolan scored what turned out to be the first of many. You see I’d made a ‘special’ friend about five seats away and I’d managed to make this friend without actually speaking to him. When the ball hit the back of the net the little b*stard charged at me full force to celebrate which resulted in me nearly toppling over the edge of the concourse entrance/exit and plunging to death. Dramatic? Maybe, but it would have hurt at the very least!
This happened five times.
This is why in the end I was quite happy that it was only five goals. Actually, nah I’m not. I’d have liked it to have been more. I’d have taken my chances on survival for a sixth goal!
Anyway, without further delay I suppose I’d best crack open the celebratory video so we can all relive that glorious day one year. What makes it even more glorious is that Widow Twankey and his band of merry retards are still waiting to get his own back on us. Here goes…
Tonight we face another team who wear trampy Red and White stripes. It’s not Stoke’s fault that those inbreeds from down the road have sullied those two colours and to be fair Stoke have nothing to do with this video.
However it does give us something to watch ahead of the game at the Britannia this evening. I very much doubt the game this evening will be as memorable as this but we can wait and see. In the meantime I’ll just enjoy watching this again. And again, and again.
Happy 5-1 everyone!
