Benwell Lad Posted June 24, 2009 Share Posted June 24, 2009 Once again the bumpkins have proved that their world revolves around Newcastle as they wallow in the glory of their greatest ever season having achieved two points more than a dreadful Newcastle side and their first home derby win for 30+ years. That, my friends, is the pinnacle of their ambitions. So while we face tirade of "humour" aimed at us by their jubilant fans, which some say is justified by the region's small club's "success" and the scorn we heaped on them over several seasons, when they sober up they'll realise that once again the joke will soon be on them. They got 36 points - roughly twice their normal Premiership total. They beat us at home for the first time in many fan's living memory. When we were ripping it out of them it was because we were challenging for Europe while they managed 15 points - not because we got 2 more points than them.

And that's before they start rebelling against Geordie boy Bruce. No, despite the laughable way our club has been ran this season, once the present fiasco is sorted and we have a Geordie legend running the show the gratuitous mocking will quickly cease and the hicks down the road will resume gazing at their navels and looking for a scapegoat. I wouldn't have Bruce's job for one of the biggest salaries in football. But there again I might .................................. Link to post Share on other sites More sharing options...
