Twitter predicts Newcastle vs Norwich will be dull, they were really wrong

St James Park

C'mon admit it, we all thought it was going to be a pretty drab game but Norwich and Newcastle proved us wrong!

When Sky Sports use the term 'Super Sunday', you can almost guarantee that the Sunday won't be very super because the games are usually a bit naff. 

So when we all saw Steve McClaren's winless Newcastle taking on Alex Neil's Norwich City, basically no one thought it was going to be interesting.

In fact, pretty much everyone was expecting an incredibly dull affair between two pretty boring teams and people on Twitter were not exactly impressed.

However, Newcastle and Norwich were having none of that and decided to treat us to a brilliant five goal thriller in just the first 45 minutes!

Actually, all five of the goals came in the space of 20 minutes, with Georginio Wijnaldum almost scoring a perfect hat-trick and Newcastle's defence gifting Norwich both of their goals.

And after that 45 minutes, everyone back-tracked on their earlier comments (including us) on just how boring we all thought the game would be.
