Maybe you watched the derby. Maybe you didn't. Either way, you know you need this celebration in your life. Aleksandar Mitrovic, who has struggled to a degree in front of goal in his debut Premier League season today scored the goal that may just give us all hope that this relegation battle may have a positive end... but that's for the coming weeks to play out. What matters today is that this happened after he scored:
If Mitrovic has any reputation on Tyneside, that reputation is that he is a bit of a nutter. It's probable that the reasons behind this are 50% his personality and 50% his actual love for this club. It's 100% nailed on that his reputation as a nutter is exactly what went flashing through this pitch invader's mind as he approached Mitrovic mid-celebration and Mitro launched toward him. In the perfectly scripted version of this celebration, the pitch invader catches Mitro in his arms, the orchestra hits a sweeping crescendo and they ride off into the sunset. The way it worked out in real life was fine, too.
