    I could fancy that Augsburg match – nice warm August Saturday afternoon. Couple of beers, see the new signings (!) in action. What’s not to like?

    Just read a thread from a Sunderland fan who has asked for the hatred to be less or dropped between us Geordies and the makems at derby matches. Well first you’re gonna have to wait a few years before that could ever happen again !
    How come every time they make it look like it’s our doing and or fault ?
    Remember not so long ago they were complaining about us Geordies wanting to help with their economy when relegated to the THIRD division, Just cos we wanted to celebrate in style at their ground wasn’t such a bad thing was it ?
    They celebrated when we were thrust into the championship, I couldn’t even listen to a radio show without one of them numpties coming on a shouting the odds and taking the p==s out of us !
    Then there was the banners that were flown across SJP on match days ( TWICE ) taking the p==s again !
    Then because they are relegated down to the THIRD tier of football and possibly soon to be FOURTH division now they want to be our friends !
