Unseen footage reveals NUFC star’s passionate message seconds after late drama at Liverpool

A brilliant video has been picked up by the pitch side cameras at Saturday’s dramatic 1-1 draw at Anfield, showing Matt Ritchie’s passionate reaction to Callum Wilson’s disallowed goal.

Just as our top scorer is reeling is reeling away to celebrate, Ritchie can be heard shouting “lads, this is ******* teamwork! GET IN THERE!” before jumping on his teammates.

As we all know, the stoppage time goal was chalked off by VAR for a ‘handball’, but justice was done when Joe Willock popped up with a 95th minute equaliser!

Watch Ritchie’s brilliant reaction to the Wilson goal that never was below:

He may not be our captain or even our vice captain in Jamaal Lascelles’ absence, but there’s little doubt Ritchie is one of our leaders both on and off the pitch.

The determined winger turned wing-back is one of the most vocal players in the squad, always gives his all and has proven he isn’t finished at Premier League level in recent weeks, with his return helping us to two wins and a couple of draws in our last four games.

He certainly doesn’t look like a man who has been pushing for a return down south just a few months ago!

  1. Said months ago Ritchie should be one of the first names on the team sheet, massive presence on the pitch leads by example, he is like an angry Jack Russell but has a superb touch and crossing ability, with him getting the ball in the box it gives the strikers a chance. must mention Murphy who has been great in the right wing back position and once again can cross the ball and like Ritchie can score goals. Just need to start Wilson from the start in place of Joe and we have a fighting chance again anyone.

    Here we go again with the Murphy obsession.

    As was said earlier – Murphy passes the ball into touch 10 times and to the opposition another 10 then makes one good pass then one decent cross and he’s a hero.

    Shelvey controls the midfield, dictates the pace, completes more passes than anyone else in the team, and starts four or five attacks, but makes one mistake and gets slagged off for it.
    Then there are the fans who complain that he passes sideways and backwards too much, ignoring the fact that there are no other passes on.

    Toon fans have very selective memories.
