Well the first Derby day of the season is upon us tomorrow and with not having one last season with the Toon being in the Championship, it’s back . . . the Tyne/Wear derby! I have to admit that I am very excited and cannot wait to face Sunderland again at St James Park.
My best memory of being at a Derby game has to be Emre’s free kick to give us a 3-2 win!
Nothing is better than a win over your fierce local rivals! You get the bragging rights at work the next day! With being from South Shields – which has to be one of the most dangerous places to be on Derby Day due to the fact that it really is split 50/50 between NUFC and SAFC fans. Even my family is split between the two teams. The banter is usually brilliant!
HOWAY THE LADS! Let’s go for the 3 points tomorrow. I shall be in my seat in the Gallowgate end hoping for a “Emre free kick moment”.
