Sunderland 0 – 1 Newcastle

Only the second game of the Premiership season saw the Wear/Tyne Derby taking place. With Sunderland bringing in 10 new players and more players leaving St James Park than we have brought in, it was always going to be a strange game to guess the result of. Pre-match all kind of facts and stats were flying around including that we had scored against the Mackem’s the previous 22 games, and let’s face it they don’t manage to beat us very often.

Derby Day: NUFC v SAFC

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”.
