Well we just don’t believe this – after Newcastle were 3-1 down to Norwich City after 69 minutes we came back with three goals in the last 20 minutes to win this game and there were two goals late in stoppage time and we somehow won this game 4-3.
It would have been a stunner to lose to Norwich, because we would have gone 7 points behind them, but maybe the Gods are on our side after all.
Gayle got his second goal of the game after 71 minutes and then Gouffran scored 5 minutes into injury time.
Dwight Gayle after scoring winner six minutes into stoppage time
And yes – you guessed it – Dwight Gayle got his hat trick one minute later and gave Newcastle all 3 points – which is exactly what we needed.
Who said he should have been dropped then?
Well me actually.
But Dwight now has 7 goals for Newcastle this season.
Only Newcastle can mount a magnificent late comeback like this and the Newcastle fans will be going crazy tonight back home.
Did I say it was unbelievable?
We’ll have a report out later – once we re cover – but we are now 3rd top one point behind Norwich and 3 points behind Huddersfield.
Note to Rafa – this is not exactly good for the old heart.
