Tyneside Derby

It was Sunderland Vs Newcastle today and it was really great, according to Sky...

Newcastle took the lead through Cabaye after about three minutes. Newcastle were absolutely cruising at the start of the game but then Tiote was given a straight red. It depends who you support, either the referee wanted to make the game fair by sending an innocent man off, or a studs up tackle on the shin is a sending off. Most likely the latter. I'd be terrified to sent off Tiote, he looks like he would wait for me in the car-park, rip my kidneys out with his bare hands and turn them into a delicious pate.

Despite having a one man advantage for the majority of the game, Sunderland did fuck all. I don't support either team but watching Sunderland's tactic of cross, cross, cross, cross was enough to make me support any team they ever play against. Eventually they scored from a cross so I guess it kind of worked, even though it went in via Demba Ba's really confused face. Perhaps in training Martin O'Neill can teach through-balls and get someone in to help McLean turn right.
