|Scandinavian based fans outnumbered travelling UK Mags by about ten to one. That resulted in a slightly Nordic pronunciation of the "United" chant, while hand claps greeted moments of Newcastle pressure. Toon fans found themselves in one single tier 2,000-capacity stand with some all-important shade on the rear half. In total there were 1,700 in the away end. A small police presence was relaxed in the extreme and seemed to have nothing to occupy them.
We debuted our new third kit, a sky blue and black ensemble with sky blue shorts and socks.
At the far end of the ground from where the away fans were, Emre won a free kick towards the Lillestrøm box. Solano backheeled it to N'Zgobia, who let fly with a shot that the goalkeeper could only parry out to his right. Ameobi muscled past a defender and dumped him on his backside before sweeping home a low shot from 8 yards into the opposite corner of the goal. 1-0 to The Toon after 29 mins. Then on 35 mins a fine ball out of defence from Carr just stayed in down the right flank and was seized on by Parker. The Newcastle captain raced away before centering for the unmarked Ameobi to poke home from close range at the far post. 2-0.
It wsn’t until the final minute that we scored again and although various agencies and media outlets mysteriously gave the scorer as Milner, there was no doubting that Emre took the ball from the right flank along the edge of the box, before sweeping home a looping shot that the goalkeeper watched as it sailed past him.
