Gus Poyet has done his best Jordan Belfort impression this afternoon
It was the start many a neutral, well if you aren’t from Newcastle that is, would have dreamed for - as Liverpool loanee Fabio Borini sprinted away from Martin Demichelis, out muscled Vincent Kompany and fired in with the outside of his right boot from an incredibly acute angle.
It was a magnificent early goal that gave Sunderland, whom most had written off before kick-off, a real chance of winning the first silverware of the football season.
And Gustavo Poyet, on Oscar weekend, seemed to pull out a homage to one of the Academy Award nominated films with his celebration.
The Wolf of Wall Street moment where Jordan Belfort, played by Leonardo DiCaprio, smugly lifts his arms into the air has become a meme sensation on the web - and Poyet did his own version as he basked in the glory of his adoring fans.
Not a stranger to big celebrations, remember when he got Brighton into the Championship, this one is arguably his best.

But will he be celebrating at the final whistle?
