It’s been a long, long time since football supporters have been able to unashamedly celebrate inside grounds when their team has scored.
Atmospheres up and down the country were spine-tingling, and none more so than at St. James’ Park where those lucky enough to have a ticket were treated to a six-goal thriller.
Unfortunately for the hosts, the game went the way of visitors West Ham.
A video from up in the gods captures the moment when the Toon Army celebrated wildly after Freddie Woodman had saved Michail Antonio’s penalty.
That was just a pre-cursor for the Hammers fans to go wild seconds later as Tomas Soucek slammed home the rebound.
