But...6 in a row. But...Calciopoli.

Freezing special day.

A s*** season but even then still felt like a trophy was a realistic outside possibility.

2 years ago! Almirón's debut, most excited I'd been for a debut in years, bizarrely mild/warm weather in February, first red card given to the opposition in 5 decades or something, expectant of a win and delivering with the only gripe being not scoring more. Mint.

Aye, we were brilliant that day. Should’ve been at least 5-0 in the end. Imagine actually being able to dominate a game from start to finish!

You'd have to be as thick as pig s*** to conclude the football  hasn't gone backward under Bruce. Yet the fallacy we played negative football under Benitez is still trotted out on a regular basis.

I remember being gutted Almiron didn't get his goal when he hit the post but forgot how great the move was!

Was it his debut? Sure he played at Tottenham early feb? Seems strange his debut would be nearly 4 weeks after he signed.

Pretty sure it was, or at least full debut. Think he was injured when he signed.

Lejeunes passes in that clip man  :love:

Him in the squad would render Shelvey completely useless.

Came off the bench at Wolves the week earlier I think.

Felt like one of the best days of my life at the time that. I was 12 and the only time we'd beaten them in my living memory was the game at Roker with no away fans - I'd been to all the other ones, so that was 6 games against with 4 draws and 2 defeats. Then I was in second row right behind the goal for this, amazing. (Always try to find myself on camera, must've just been cut off, gutted).

I loved our fans behind right down by the pitch behind that goal. The goals in that goal are much more memorable for me - i.e. especially that one and all the 4-1 goals, as opposed to say the Solano penalty at the other end.


(Seems like 99% of my NUFC posts and thoughts now are just reminiscing about the same over and over again each anniversary, mostly from that period)

edit:

Also, last time I'll bang this drum but moments like this will never happen again while there's VAR, so sad. Now I'd have doubt in case it nicked someone's arm or something til confirmed. Luckily we're soulless anyway so VAR doesn't make that much difference.

Just read up about that, we went 2 points off top with a game in hand after that win. Unfortunately Bellamy got injured after that and our next two games were Arsenal and Liverpool, the two teams below us and we lost 0-2 and 3-0 respectively. Watched the 02-03 season review on YouTube recently and Alex Ferguson was at some awards evening with Sir Bobby and some of our players and was asked about us, he said that he thought we would have won the league if Bellamy hadn't have gotten injured.

Yeah Bellamy injury was a big loss, though don't think we'd have won it anyway really -  AArsenal never lost a game all season after losing to us in December, and barely drew any.

The 0-2 Arsenal in the next game was the one with famous Bergkamp goal.

Aye it was something like 19 wins and 2 draws for Arsenal after we beat them at Highbury, they were insane. Think Sir Alex just knew who is audience was that night so was being nice.
