A little something to get you in the mood…

Just a quick something to get you in the mood ahead of the Tyne-Wear derby today. That’s if you actually need any extra help to get into the required frame of mind!


I remember we’d had to put up with listening to how many light years the Mackems were ahead of us. I remember them saying how they were going to steamroller our team of Championship plodders. I also remember being in the Gallowgate watching them all trying to sneak out of the ground sheepishly as Shola Ameobi made it 3-0 just before half-time.

Oh how I laughed. Revenge is sweet as they say.

No doubt a Mackem somewhere (not a live one though!) will mention the 9-1 they beat us by over 100 years ago, in the same season that we won the league in. At least this thumping could actually be recorded on video!



On a serious note, the Sunderland players must really be looking forward to this game. For the bulk of them it’s the closest game to home they’ll get given that they mainly live in Newcastle!

So just remember folks, no matter how bad you think your life may be, it could always be worse. You could be a Mackem. An entirely different breed who have taken an insult to heart and actually nicknamed themselves after it!

Howay (spelt the proper way…) the lads!

  1. What a match that was and what a sweet victory. Didn’t think we would surpass the 6-0 mauling we gave Villa which was also sweet after all the shite they gave us when we went down, but this was all the sweeter. The moment Carroll hit the bar instead of netting-the set up to Shola’s magic jump goal, I knew who the real geordie was ๐Ÿ˜€

    Can’t fucking wait for tomorrow now, its like christmas eve!

  3. Thanks Toonsy for that. Brilliant stuff. Can’t wait for it to begin, just watching Shanghai GP to pass the time and it’s all kicking off there as well. Pity Cattermole wasn’t playing. Di Canio would have him wound up like a spring and it would be a definite sending off. They will be dreading this one, with so much at stake and anticipating the cauldron that will be SJP. Let’s stuff the rat munchers.Going for 3-0 to us. Mackem slayer to get at least one. Howay the Lads

  6. On one of their forums a couple of weeks back, even though they were below us in the league they were talking about bringing their “Toon Toon gannin Doon” banner ๐Ÿ™„ ๐Ÿ˜ณ ๐Ÿ˜ณ ๐Ÿ˜ณ , very intelligent mackems like ๐Ÿ˜†

  7. Embarrass them? Yes, totally!!!
    Send them down? I hope not – our aim should be to finish well above them every year as well as collecting an easy 6 points off them every season.
    I’m sure that would hurt them even more.

  8. I hope Pardz has a good game too and Cisse takes all his chances and doesn’t stray off side ๐Ÿ™‚ ๐Ÿ™‚ shit that won’t leave much to talk about ๐Ÿ™‚ ๐Ÿ™‚

  9. Pootle, I’d be happy if they stayed at least 1 div higher than them for the rest of my days. If that happened we would be “finishing well above them” and I could laugh at them 365 days a year instead of just the 2… though I get your point of view about the 6 points ๐Ÿ˜‰

  10. Toonsy ,Thank you for that ,set me up good and proper watching that again ๐Ÿ˜€

    Nolan had a field day and Shola was in usual slayer mood ,it was fantastic and how good were Bartons corners ,realise how poor ours are now when you watch that again.

    I’m normally worried on Derby day but I honestly think pound for pound we are the better side at the moment ,hopefully that shows over the 90+ mins today , I would love to rub their noses in it again with a big win but 3 points gained any way will do me :mrgreen: ๐Ÿ˜€ HWTL CAN’T WAIT.

  14. Rich – I forgot about that lad. Sods law that the time we thump Sunderland is the time when I have a nutter who runs to cuddle me when we score every goal. Not a problem normally but I did have that 20ft drop onto solid concrete next to me which his public affection was pushing me towards each time we scored ๐Ÿ˜†
