This Jack Grealish goal handed Newcastle the Chamionship title

It had to be Jack Grealish.

Of course it had to be Grealish.

Sure if it wasn't Grealish, this guy would have been wrong. And we have no reason to not trust this guy's predictions.

Especially considering this guy has a 100% prediction success rate (of the ones we've seen, at least... admittedly, we didn't do much research).

Brighton and Hove Albion were 1-0 against Aston Villa. Had they beaten the Vilains, they would have pipped Newcastle United to the Championship.

Up until the 89th minute, it looked like Brighton manager Chris Hughton was going to get to lift the cup as the league champions.

However, Jack Grealish refused to let that happen as he chanced his luck with a rangey effort from well outside the box. The goalkeeper should have had it covered, but somehow, he committed a howler that will haunt his nightmares for a long time.

Just look at his reaction to the ball hitting the back of the net.

Head in hands. Hands to the floor. Utter despair.

Brighton's loss - and Blacburn Rovers', who were relegated to League One, was Newcastle United's gain. The draw meant that Newcastle took the Championship title with 94 points, a solitary point ahead of Brighton.

The Toon Army were thrilled with Grealish spoiling the Brighton party. Fans wanted their new hero to be signed up, have statues erected, but most of all, they just wanted to say thanks.

This chap owes him a pint more than any of them.
