Listen to the BBC Radio Newcastle podcast of match highlights
I'm not sure I can say we were totally without fault as we did allow Bent to score, but credit to the lads for a brilliant game where they played for pride not pounds. It could have gone the other way had the penalty been granted to Sunderland in the first half, but it wasn't. I'm a bit gutted Shola was taken off before he had the chance to score number three, but he proved his worth and maybe now we can see him more often in the starting line up. Nolan of course was brilliant and got perfect service from his room mate Andy Caroll. So why is the Southern press so keen to get Hughton sacked? Bored? Not content to see us happy? Who knows, but it's time he was left alone and he got a new contract and some high praise from the ownership.
By the way, did anybody else see that wee lad at the beginning of the match? Cute as a button taking a penalty. Much better than the sight of the fat topless bloke and his multitudinous rolls of fat. My worse moment was when the camera panned on Mike Ashley sat there like a toad on a pile of his own shit grinning. Credit to the supporters for not taking the focus off our lads and singing from start to finish.
