It’s the Tyne-Wear derby at the weekend, and we at Football FanCast are all very excited.

The Sunderland-Newcastle rivalry is one of the Premier League’s greatest, and it delivers upon its prestigious reputation and tradition every season with goals galore and drama aplenty. With both sides scrapping it out at the lower end of the table, tomorrow’s fixture at the Stadium of Light looks set to be yet another classic.

So in homage to the North East’s greatest clubs, the Mackems and the Geordies, the Black Cats and the Magpies, FFC have created a special select XI, composed of players from both Sunderland and Newcastle.
