Title: Round 12 - Sunderland (A) 21.10.12
Post by: trophy4toon on October 19, 2012, 07:54:54 pm
Feeling optimistic about this one, mainly because Sunderland can't score and we can and I'd hate to see Mackem2 having any fun on the day at all:

Sunderland 0 Newcastle 1

Having just written the match preview:
http://www.trophy4toon.co.uk/forum/index.php?topic=3080.0 

I've changed my mind on this game. The grimness of Sunderland under Martin O'Neill has seen them draw 9 of their last 14 matches and only Steven Fletcher has scored for them. We are little better as only Ba and Ben Arfa have scored for us, so only 3 players on the pitch have scored this season  :o  :o  :o

So I'm going for a draw, will it be 0-0, 1-1 or 5-5, thats the choice :
Sunderland 1 Newcastle 1

Well Slam Dunc is in great need of some points so this has got to be an away win.

Mackem 2 has got to go for a home win ha ha ha ha.

By the laws of averages Sunderland are going to win a derby eventually ... however hopefully not this one! ;-)

Sunderland 1 Toon 1 ... it is at the Stadium of Plight after all. Save the 5-1 thrashings for SJP  :D

So here it is, the big one....................

The Mags don't travel that well, prefering the JJB Sports Direct Arena to any proper footballing venue whereas under O'Neil its fortress SOL (well for securing a point a game anyway).

I'm going for a 2 - 1 home win - thats

Sunderland 2 - 1 Newcastle.

Last time I went to the big derby it was at the Mike Ashley Arena, we got stuffed 2 - 0 and some of the fighting I saw at Central Station was pretty embarasing - it turns out my cousin was part of it - this did not impress.

O'Neill will have done his homework and worked out that if you stop Demba Ba and Ben Arfa we've got no one else to score.

So he'll kick them to bits and hope for a bit of luck for Fletcher to bang another one in in our end

Sunderland 1 Newcastle 0

Well what would have been my 1st 5 pointer of the season, changed to my usual single point per match with 5 to go :(

Well, well, well, it appears Sunderland have a new second-top scorer!

Didn't watch the game but will catch-up on the highlights later tonight.

Disappointed we didn't stuff the Mags but in a way giving your lot some hope of pulling-off an improbable victory only for one of your own to net for us makes it sweeter for us as it'll all the more annoying for you.

Low points scorer for me but I take some solace in getting points for predicting your lot would net once.

Ha ha, O'Shea's header was going miles wide until it hit Ba in the face and bounced into the net.

I was proud of Newcastle's performance today and just shows how much better we are than Sunderland.

If Tiote had not been unjustly sent off we would have won by a mile !!

Can I just point out to Mackem 2 that we netted twice ... albeit once at the wrong end!  :'(
It was the only way they were going to score even with 12 men against 10 (you have to include the ref!)
Was Fletcher playing? ... didn't notice him!  :D

Tooncelona didn't notice Fletcher - neither did Tiote as he tried to separate the lower part of his leg from the rest of his body!

Being totally fair I think your boys put up a decent performance, personally I'd prefer the premier league if players were actually allowed to mis-time a tackle without being immediately red-carded (god knows it would have saved Cattermole about 50 suspended games). Is it me or was football more fun when players were allowed to make hard challenges??????
