Stephen Goldsmith writes: Despite the well documented fact that Sunderland have only won once at home to Newcastle since the invention of the wheel, it goes without saying that not one of us predicted anything other than a home win on Sunday.
John McCormick admitted that he always predicts with the heart when it comes to the lads’ results, which gives me an automatic inferiority complex as it’s now clear that by him constantly predicting a Black Cats win, it means I should be in a better position than him due to the sheer numerical advantage – yet I’m nowhere near him in the table.
