‘Goosebumps’, ‘Brings a tear to my eye’ – Some Sunderland fans respond to nostalgic performance against Newcastle United

To Sunderland supporters, football is everything.

Wearsiders love nothing more than heading to the Stadium Of Light on a Saturday afternoon to watch their team pick up three points.

While the ongoing global pandemic has stopped that happening of late, there’s no way that supporters will forget that feeling – particularly against one of their rivals.

The battle between Sunderland and Newcastle United has been fierce for many years, and will continue to be for eternity.

It might have been four-and-a-half years since the last contest between the clubs, but that doesn’t make the feeling of victory any less sweet.

In fact, it’s been 20 years since one memorable outing which saw Sunderland record a 2-1 victory over Newcastle at St James’ Park.

Don Hutchinson and Niall Quinn got the goals that secure the win, while a penalty save from Thomas Sorensen also played a big role in the win.

Some supporters have loved reliving the afternoon after a post shared by Sunderland fan site Roker Report.

Here’s what some supporters had to say about the highlights clip.
