Newcastle fans heap more misery on Sunderland

Newcastle fans are mercilessly mocking Sunderland after yet another late goal put the Black Cats on the brink of relegation to League One.

While most of the footballing world was enjoying an incredible night of Champions League football, Newcastle fans were reveling in the misery of their arch-rivals, as Norwich equalised late against Sunderland.

Chris Coleman’s side looked to be heading towards a huge win that would have left them just four points adrift of safety, but Ivo Pinto’s late goal levelled the scores, leaving the Black Cats’ survival hopes dangling by the thinnest of threads.

Sunderland took the lead through George Honeyman, and will be ruing the missed opportunity after Aiden McGeady missed a first half penalty.

Newcastle fans were of course tortured plenty by their Wearside foes last season, but bounced straight back up from the Championship at their first attempt.

Sunderland haven’t had quite the same luck, and now look almost certain to record back to back relegations.

It’s fair to say Newcastle fans are enjoying their rival’s downfall, and some of the best Twitter reactions can be found below…
