@bigpapablu – “Gonna spend the next hour or so gazing at the league table like it's a good thing. Who's with me?”

@NUFC360 – “Dubravka was great. The defence did well in the second half. Murphy didn’t let his head drop, scored a worldie. S Longstaff was everywhere. @asaintmaximin - what else can you say? He’s a star.”

@AdamBeckett09 – “It’s so great to finally see #NUFC take the opportunity presented to them. I fully expected (and for 45 mins, was justified) us to totally blow the chance to push ourselves toward staying up. Happy days.”

@davez2010 – “Safety is in our hands now, confidence should be high this week and we play better at HOME. It’s all to play for and every game should be considered a winnable game, let’s get more points on the board ASAP!”

@Magpie24_7 – “What a week for Allan Saint-Maximin... Donated packages to NHS workers in the region, Assisted and scored in 5 minutes to turn the game around, 3 points, taking us 6 points from the drop. Baller!”
