Newcastle Fans React With Delight For Daryl Murphy

8:47 am, Tuesday, September 6th, 2016 by Dr. Ed Harrison · 11 Comments

We were certainly delighted when we saw Daryl Murphy score his first goal ever for Ireland after 23 caps last night and it was some goal as he powered a header past the goalkeeper from a corner with just 10 minutes left in the game to get the 2-2 draw.

Newcastle fans took to Twitter to express their delight for Daryl.

    Good header by Murphy but the delivery from Brady was excellent as well!! Wish we had signed him for the left wing!!

    I’m warming to Murphy, even if I think he might be, brace yourself, a hipster.

    A hipster ?

    I don’t know what you mean, a hipster to me has always been someone who is fashion conscious, perhaps a bit ott, I’ve never came across a footballing hipster, it would be something learnt if you could explain it to me !
