Some incredible scenes at the Stadium of Light over the weekend (no, they didn’t win!), with a Newcastle fan providing a priceless moment for us Geordies to enjoy during their half time ‘entertainment.
A Newcastle fan stepped up and won their half-time crossbar challenge, and if that wasn’t already bad enough for the dribs and drabs of Mackem fans to endure, he then marked his victory with a classic Alan Shearer celebration!
He was initially being applauded by the half empty Stadium, with few clocking on that he was actually a Newcastle fan mimicking Shearer in his black and white shirt. To top it all off, an on-rushing steward eventually cottoned on – only for him to be nutmegged!
Here’s the footage itself, shared by Sky Sports news over the weekend:
Not only are Sunderland flying into League One at the speed of light, they also had a Newcastle fan win the HT crossbar challenge yesterday, do a Shearer celebration lap of honour AND nutmeg a steward. Times are tough on Wearside. pic.twitter.com/KaPxHVFcy7

It was a bad enough day for Sunderland as it is, with their 2-0 home defeat to Preston leaving them 5 points adrift from safety and plummeting towards League One, however this really will rub salt into the wounds!
Feeling the slightest bit sorry for them? Watch this..
