Watch Norwich owner Delia Smith sum up Newcastle’s draw as she appears to fall asleep in the stands at St James’


DELIA SMITH summed up the viewing experience as it was caught on television cameras appearing to be sleeping during Norwich’s draw with Newcastle.

The Canary Islands owner and television legend, 80, watched Newcastle knock a man down but opened the scoring thanks to a Callum Wilson penalty on the hour mark.

Norwich’s pressure with an extra man ultimately proved too much as forward Teemu Pukki equalized in the 79 minutes with a brilliant left-footed volley.

It left St James Park silent – and apparently calm enough to give Smith, 80, a break.

Unsurprisingly, this left Twitter hysterical as one said, “Delia Smith falling asleep was the highlight of this game.”

Another said: “Delia Smith is taking a little nap over there.”

One added: “Norwich City owner Delia Smith is not enjoying the game against Newcastle.”

Another added: “Delia Smith falling asleep.”

Defenseman Ciaran Clark’s red card for shooting down Pukki as he scored just nine minutes later made him a mountain for Eddie Howe’s side to climb.

But Wilson’s penalty after Billy Gilmour’s handball put the Magpies on track for their first win in over six months.

Tim Krul got his hands on Wilson’s one-time kick, but he slipped off the bar and Newcastle’s season finally took off – 55 days after the Saudi-led takeover.

And they looked good until Martin Dubravka hit a cross on the way from undersized Giannoulis, who crossed over to Pukki – with the Finn scorching in the top corner.

A draw with 10 men for 80 minutes can hardly be considered a bad result. But when you’re in a quagmire like Newcastle, it doesn’t help.

Beat Burnley on Saturday and there might be hope on Howe’s side – if not, the lower Mags look a long way off.
