Chances are they will start with the...but! but! but! we won the Carling Cup and got twonked in the UEFA Cup Final...
...CJ was even harping on about the 8-1 victory against Man City.
It was an impressive scoreline, I'll give them that, but it wasn't going to do anything to help get them above the Toon in the Premiership.
Now then Davey lad.....Ahem...if i remember rightly the phrase was "Newcastle will finish higher than Boro by a country mile".....ok I owe you a pint or whatever the bet was ...but Jees...the countryside is getting a lot smaller these days.

Well said CJ, and it was honours even on both matches home and away. However Newcastle Utd did beat us on managers in a year 3-1.
As to certain contributors dismissing the 8-1 slaughter of Man City, they would have been crowing from the highest if Newcastle Utd had managed it and Owen had scored a hatrick. You can only play the team that is put out against you and Man City did beat Man Utd (Premier League Champions) both home and away.
