Sing your hearts out for the lads!
Sing your hearts out for the lads!
This weekend, life stops for the majority of Newcastle fans, and Sunderland fans for that matter.

The Tyne/Wear derby is back on the agenda, and I have a feeling that this one could be particularly tasty, for a number of reasons.

Newcastle have arguably been knocked off their perch as top dogs in the North-East due to last seasons ‘character building’ season in the second tier of English football, but Sunday presents a chance for us to claim that crown back and take the bragging rights, until January anyway.

For that to happen it’s going to take a whole lot of togetherness, both on the pitch and off the pitch. It’s going to take a team effort, and the fans need to play their part in the proceedings and get behind the team vocally and show them filthy, dribbling tramps what support is.

St James’ Park is very nearly sold out and the only seats that remain are in the ‘Platinum Club’ and ‘Bar 1892’ areas. They are expensive, and it’s touch and go whether or not enough people decide to pay nearly £70 for us to technically sell-out the ground. I say technically because it won’t be possible to sell-out officially due a larger than normal empty space in the seats for segregation purposes. Coincidentally it also matches the larger than normal empty space between the ears of Sunderland fans!

I’m sure the atmosphere will be vociferous anyway, but we, collectively as fans, need to be at the top of our game and get right behind the team. If you have to be ‘entertained’ before you show your support for the lads then be prepared to be in the minority for this game.

I will be at the game on Sunday, and I will be singing my heart out for the lads regardless, but not in my usual East Stand seat. For this match I have decided to move to The Gallowgate (upper), somewhere where I haven’t sat for many many years – at least eight years off the top of my head, maybe more.

The match is getting closer, and as it moves closer I can feel my stomach starting to turn. I’ve been anticipating this match since we won promotion against Sheffield United nearly six months ago, and I intend to make the most of it.

Howay the lads!

  1. its great to see all the mackem jokes coming out. i work in bedford – and my mate looks forward to the derby asmuch as i do just for the crack!
    2-1 to us, like :)

  2. On newsnow Tribalfootball say Hughton will stck with Krul following his nightmare own goal
    a) He has no choice
    b) How the fcuk was it Krul’s fault

    terrible piece of journalism

    They are cnuts

  3. I wish I could feel that once in a life time.
    finger cross maybe in 10 years time ( minimum ) lol

  4. Not going to predict any score….never do for the derby games. Just hope and pray that we win. Shola usually turns up again the scum so hopefully he’ll do the same come Sunday. Come On The Lads!!!!!


  5. posts like the above start the run up,guts have started already,even struggle to eat,well thats soup till sunday neet then,we will win ime sure,even batty says we will hes not a bad judge like :)

  6. Nice one toonsy,

    the Gallowgate is a good little vantage point like, and is it just me or does the game seem differnt when you’re watching it head on; suddenly your wide men become more apparent and important. The down side is you won’t be able to see the unwashed silenced, not from the upper tier anyway.


  7. Dunno what’s been happening of late but I’ve been experiencing problems loggin in to the site. I know, nobody’s noticed…… sob, sob, sob.

    However to matters more germain to the topic, let’s all hope that the lads on the field and our magnificent supporters gain a morale boosting victory for the sake of Hughton who’s been given a torrid time by Oliver, Kinnear et al!

    A good victory in a cleanly played game without any stupidity from our fans to give the press nowt to hit us or Hughton with!

    He said we would get beat 3-1 at West Ham. So did I like. ;)

  9. Why the hell is the press want to f**k up with us everytime !!?? no matter good or bad we are , if we doing good they just come up with the s**t made up rumour or if we doing bad they just make it even worst.

    I’m really feel sorry for CH that have to go through with some s**t news and that came from nobody than the press themself.

    All the sack rumour thing is sh*ttt considering we doing OK at the moment and FFS we 9th in the league. Why don’t they go pick other team that lie below us , there are many team that not doing so well right now I mean with all the respect Liverpool , West Ham are lying in the bottom and all situation around them is not really good. Just leave us alone.

    The press are totally bunch of bastard who made the fan for their excuse of thing that they came up , everyteam have some fan that not satisfied with thing all the time but they choose to pick us. w***er

  10. Styart – Absolutely agree. And if anyone decides to have a pop at me for trying to sing I’ll set Rich on them. He is only just up the row from me anyway so….. be warned :lol:

  11. DJG – I’m at the front row of the upper tier so I can still get a view of them I think :)

  12. Aye mate thats what I thought but the gallowgate roof is actually angled downwards and if your right at the back, you can just about see the top of the leazes crossbar! Depends how far down you are.

  13. Steve Bruce, Lee Cattermole,Bramble.

    Andy Carroll,Shola Ameobi.

    It’s gonna be one hell of a fiery derby match. 8O 8O

    NUFC 3-2 Sunderland A.F.C

  14. Some people love the gallowgate though and it’s deffo the end where more goals are scored. Come to think of it, thats where all 4 goals were scored in the Wigan game and I was in the East Stand towards the North East corner. :(

  15. Ah right, you’ll see nee bover from there, I was about another tier up from that, still not at the back by quite a lot tho!

  16. good article Toonsy
    Im nervous as hell as always for derby day!!
    we have to stand as one all together and silence the unwashed!!
    Iv a feeling that there may be one or two red cards – there is a hell of alot of passion in both teams, but we have more of it !!
    the spine of Collo Tiote barton Carroll is enough to destroy the SMBs!!
    Lets see if cattermole can handle a tiote challenge!!
    Ameobi to be derby hero again!!
    Toonsy – how many seats are being left empty for segregation this time?? How many tickets did they get??

    It was written over 3 weeks ago. 07/10/10

    Obviously still missing my point. Not your fault I suppose.

  19. Prediction, Jonas to run rings around Bardsley, Carroll to dominate Tightarse and score twice, Twatermole to target Barton ( hope he keeps his head), Toon to win two one.

  20. Toonsy (18) By your carefully drawn arrow, I think you must be seated about six or seven seats from me. I wanna hear you on Sunday!!!!!

    Lee Zezender

  21. BBB – i agree!! except Tiote will get to to cattermole first! Tiote will be a legend!!
    Howay the lads!!!!!

  22. Whatever happened to our press/media relations officer? The mackem press are having a field day with the Hughton for the sack shite with Bruce now jumping on the bandwagon, all in all its another feeding frenzy due to no response from the club.
    Its all well and good refusing to respond to speculation but when its getting out of hand, and it is big style, its time for Lambias to get out of his ivory castle and tell the fans the truth via the media.

  23. Lee Zezender – It could be a couple of seats out, but it’s about right. Seat 96 to be precise :)

  24. BBB – The club did that the other night by releasing that brief statement, or at least I think that is what they think they have done.

  25. I was born in 73.

    If you really were born in 73, that makes you a ………………….
    its not a scorpio or a pisces,,,, its erm. Oh yeah. TWAT.

    Lets all laugh at Sunderland AGAIN.

  26. Its time to break out the old classics again on Sunday.

    My old man, said be a Sun(censored)nd fan… I said ‘F**k off fatha your a cnut’……….

    Have you ever seen a Mackem in Milan (well have you?)

    One nil down, three one up, then Albert Luque Wraps it up……

    Lets all laugh ta sunderland SUNDAY!!.

  27. Toonsys in attendance as well i see, I was on the upper tier earlier in the season but back to the milburn for moi, Oh well i bet i can still spot you i used to love the goonies… ;)

  28. When you go on the home page of the site it says breaking news – Carrol signs new five year deal and Hughton won’t add to the squad.

    Why is that breaking news, considering it was two weeks ago?

  29. Stuart – Becasue the new website is crap to be honest. I have found a few times that things aren’t in the right places etc…..

    “Stuart – Becasue the new website is crap to be honest.”

    I thought that the old one was shite too, but the new one is worse, if anything. Compared with the websites of similar teams, it is embarrassing.

  32. stu – cos the websites shite , it’s old news – toon need to sack thier web designer

    loving the mackem jokes, it’s time to put rivalries and personal feeling aside and come together to show the scum of the earth the power of the Geordie voice on Sunday, any man who can raise a voice must stand as one and send the sad mackems home defeated and with the Geordie passion ringing in thier ears
    come let’s do it, let’s fvcking shout the roof off

  34. “This weekend, life stops for the majority of Newcastle fans, and Sunderland fans for that matter.”

    Does life ever really start for Sunderland supporters, Toonsy?

  35. Worky – Aye, of course it does.

    It starts with a bowl of cheesy chips and a bottle of trampy blue pop :)

  36. ya sister is ya mother, ya father is ya brother , you all f–k each other the mackem family, da da dada

  37. A mackem pulled over his car by the side of the road and showed his mate where he’d first had sex.

    “It was right down there by that tree. I remember the day like it was yesterday. It was a warm summer day, She and I were so much in love. We walked down to the tree and made love for hours” He recalled.

    “That sounds wonderful” said his mate.

    “Yes. It was okay until I looked up and noticed her mother was standing right there watching us.”

    “Oh my God! What did her mother say when she saw you making love to her daughter?”

    You get what you pay for.

    The entire club from top to bottom is in the midst of monetary cuts that make the governments spending cuts look like their throwing money around left, right and centre!

  39. What does a mackem lass do with her ar*ehole before she has sex?

    Drops him off at the club…………..

  40. Mackem couple appear on Jeremy Kyle as they can’t have kids. jeremy says ” we’ve got the results of your tests Cleetus, and everything is fine as far as you are concerned, It appears that its you sister is the one who is infertile….”

  41. stu – you ain’t wrong there man, anyway am done with work for the week so here’s to the run up to Sunday – really looking forward to it – ended up lashing out 134 quid plus booking fee plus flights – if any fooker tells me to stop singing and sit doon I’ll fvck him
