Sunderland take on Newcastle on Sunday 25th October, 2015, with kickoff at 12:00. This match is currently being shown LIVE on Sky Sports 1.

Today is a day for football, local rivalry and full-on hatred, and that is somewhat refreshing. In an era where we’re constantly bombarded with adverts for the positive aspects of sport, while people like Oscar Pistorius and Ryan Giggs continue to excel anyway, it’s nice to spend a day watching potentially-drunk northerners battle each other vocally while overpaid manchildren run about in shorts.

Still, this is a relegation six-pointer before the cretins at the Mirror have even begun to think those words, and a game well-worth watching in between the rugby matches, with the addition of Sam Allardyce only making it fruitier.
