On This Day In History

Recommended Posts

and of course -

 

mackem Chairman Bob Murray chose to be on a Caribbean cruise as his pathetic football club were sunk without a trace at the Stadium of Plight on Easter Monday.

 

Murray was in Mustique while Geordies Alan Shearer and Michael Chopra scored twice in a minute to turn around a half-time deficit. Charles N'Zogbia and Albert Luque finished off the job as we recorded our biggest derby win for nearly 50 years.

 

But for an hour there was nothing to suggest that we would equalise a first half Justin Hoyte goal, let alone put four past the hapless hicks.

 

The introduction of local lad Chopra for the struggling Lee Clark proved to be the turning point and within seconds Chops had got us back on terms with his first Premiership strike.

 

A minute later Shearer signed off his derby career with a penalty to wipe out the memory of the one he missed at St. James' and the game was turned on its head.

 

Charles N'Zogbia who had been a little out of sorts then waltzed through to get our third and as the travelling fans pointed out "we only played for seven minutes".

 

Shearer then limped off after suffering a serious knee injury - his career coming to a glorious end - to be replaced by Albert Luque and the Spaniard finally got the goal that has been eluding him as we firmly nailed down the mackem coffin lid.

 

Glenn Roeder punched the air in front of a jubilant away end and the smiles on the ecstatic Chopra and Shearer when they scored were worth any piece of silverware.

 

Equally joyous was the sight of mackems deserting the sinking ship, including one who tried to get to the celebrating Shearer before being removed by four members of the local constabulary.

Fook me, they had a double disc cover (25p) Printed cover insert (5p) disc x2 (50p) Jiffy envelope (18p) and stamp (49p)

 

About £1.50ish to produce - but a masterpiece of mackem destruction made it a worthwhile purchase.
