comments from both managers:
"I’m hearing the right stuff on the radio and in the street about the
levels of antagonism between the two clubs dying down a little bit to what it’s
really about – a football match.
"I’m really pleased about that and
hope it carries through to Sunday.
"I said two years ago that this nasty
hate – those kinds of words – needed to go out. It’s a rivalry, a game
of football – may the best team win, and then we shake hands and go home.
"The incident with the flight this
year, and the way the Sunderland fans contributed and the effort they made,
has made great steps to help this fixture become what it should be, a
spectacle for the North East, not something where we have to order extra
"The last thing the North East should
be doing is fighting each other, but, at the same time, knowing it’s a
massive rivalry, the passion of the game shouldn’t be lost.
"We know that will be there and it’s
what it should be about. I’m sure Gus is of the same opinion as me."
"The derby is a special game so let us all enjoy it with dignity. Let the
winner celebrate and let whoever loses hold their head high and look forward
to the next time.
"Accept whatever it brings, enjoy it but without being disrespectful. I
would ask everyone to go to the game with pride, to respect the occasion, but
most of all to be safe.”

The 151st Tyne-wear derby match takes place at St. James' Park on Sunday at 1.30pm
as Alan Pardew tries to halt a losing run of three games in this fixture and
conjure up what would be a first victory in six attempts - since the "over
the wall" game of August 2011.
Despite suffering a shoulder injury in
Wednesday's defeat at Spurs, United have confirmed that Jak Alnwick is
set to retain his place for Sunday's derby match.
The 21 year-old goalkeeper required treatment during the second half at White
Hart Lane and Alan Pardew later told journalists that the club may be forced
to investigate the possibility of making an emergency loan signing.
However that now doesn't appear to be the case and Alnwick will be in goal at
SJP on Sunday, with the 17 year-old Freddie Woodman providing cover.
Daryl Janmaat is available for selection after completing his one match ban
against Spurs. One booking away from a ban of his own, Cheick Tiote didn't play
on Wednesday night but should return to the fray for the derby.
Papiss Cisse and Steven Taylor are also expected to feature after missing the
Spurs game, but Siem de Jong, Ryan Taylor, Davide Santon, Jonas Gutierrez,
Rolando Aarons and Gabriel Obertan all remain unavailble.

Unhappy at his treatment in England, Yanga-Mbiwa has publicly praised his new
surroundings and is happy to remain in Italy - no doubt boosted by an
international recall to the French national side recently.
Italian media sources claim that a transfer fee of €7m has been agreed

Update: Friday saw confirmation that
the new CEO of Rangers is none other than Derek Llambias, a month after he
became a non-executive director of the Ibrox club.
Rangers and Mike Ashley were both issued
with notices by the Compliance Officer of the Scottish FA on Monday,
concerning alleged breaches of three disciplinary rules related to the issues
of dual club ownership:
It's reported that Ashley faces a £10K fine if a rule breach is proven,
while the Govan club could be hit with both financial penalties and expulsion
from the Scottish Cup.

Progress for the Toffees in that tie would see them in Round of 16 action on

selected for live TV transmission.
(A similar situation would await us in April should Spurs make it
through to the Europa League Quarter Finals).
PS: Advance notice that our scheduled trip to Anfield on Saturday 11th
April coincides with the staging of the Grand National at nearby Aintree
Historically, Liverpool tend not to play home games when the race is
run and with it getting underway at 4.15pm then a 3pm kickoff would seem
unlikely that day - regardless of whether the TV companies select it.

On This Day in History
Born Or Died:
George Lowrie born, Tonypandy, Wales. (1948-49)
Inside forward who began his career with Swansea
Town in 1937, moving
to Preston North End later that same year although his time at Deepdale was
blighted by injury.
Switching to Coventry City in 1939, George appeared for them
before the outbreak of WW2, representing City and Northampton Town in the War
Leagues, in addition to earning nine unofficial Welsh caps.
Hitting form upon the resumption of league football, Lowrie was Coventry's top
scorer two seasons running and won four senior caps for his native land.
Seeking a replacement for the departed Len Shackleton United paid a record fee
of £18,500 in March 1948 and he almost had a sensational start to his debut,
netting in the opening seconds only to see it ruled out.
That came against Southampton and Georgie faced the Saints twice in a week; his
last City outing and his Magpies debut, although the latter ended in a 2-4
reverse at the Dell.
Scoring against Doncaster Rovers on his home debut the following week, Lowrie
made five appearances that season as United gained promotion back to the top
Having started the season with three goals in two First Division appearances,
injury sidelined George until the following March when he managed a further two
After just one goal in a trio of starts at the beginning of the 1949/50 though
- and with United having lost all three of those games - Lowrie was sold to
Bristol City for £10,000.
The goals started to flow again for George at Ashton Gate, albeit in the Third
Division, before a broken leg derailed his career.
A comeback with Coventry City in 1952 saw Lowrie play on for a further season
and he later appeared for the Lovells Athletic side in Newport. George died in 1989.
1963 Derek Bell born, Fenham. (1981-83)
Midfielder who came through the junior ranks at SJP making his senior bow in a
1-4 loss at Blackburn Rovers in May 1982.
Sadly though he proved unable to recover from a cruciate knee injury sustained
in a tackle with Remi Moses the following year in a Central League fixture at
Forced to quit as a professional aged just 19, Derek continued to play at
non-league level with Newcastle Blue Star.
1985 saw him begin an association with Gateshead that saw him play over 300
games in nine seasons for the Tynesiders (although he did defect to North
Shields for the 1987-88 season before returning).
Former Newcastle team mate Kevin Keegan brought a Magpies XI to the
International Stadium for a testimonial match in August 1993, ending club
captain Bell's time at the 'Heed.
Working as a housing office for Newcastle City Council, Derek played on for
Bridlington Town, Bishop Auckland, Berwick Rangers and Whitley Bay, first
moving into management at Hillheads in 1995.
Spells at Blyth Spartans, Lemington Labour Club and Durham City followed - Bell
also managing the latter for a spell.
Aged 38, Derek was appearing for Benfield (managed at the time by his brother
Alan) in October 2002, when persuaded to rejoin Gateshead as first team
He went on to serve Gateshead
as their Director of Football and Chairman before finally leaving in 2008 to
work for locally- based player's agent Peter Harrison.
Bell later made a low-key return to the International Stadium, coaching
on a part-time basis.
1991 Jeff Henderson born, Ashington.
A former pupil at Coquet High School, centre half Jeff played for Northumberland Boys and
after coming through our Academy, made his
Magpies reserve debut against
Sheffield United in September 2008.
Featuring for the first team in the closing stages of a pre-season friendly at Carlisle in
July 2010, Hendo got more pitch time a year later in the kickabout at
And a first competitive selection for the Newcastle first team saw Jeff among
the unused substitutes for our Carling Cup tie against Nottingham Forest that
The following month saw Jeff loaned out to Conference side Gateshead, marking
his debut for the Tynesiders with the goal in their 1-0 win at Ebbsfleet.
Returning to United in December 2010 after making six starts and two more as
sub, the terms of Hendo's loan had allowed him to continue playing for our
reserves, but a combination of fixture clashes and fitness issues precluded
that from happening.
Having filled in at right back near the end of his spell at Gateshead, Jeff
then occupied that slot on his United reserve comeback against Bolton days
before turning 20.
Released by Newcastle in 2012, Jeff played for
Bradford City as a trialist before joining Sligo Rovers in July on a contract
until the end of their 2013 season.
Named mostly as a substitute during the remainder of the 2012 campaign (which
ran from March to October), Hendo did manage some pitch time as The Bit o' Red
clinched their First League of Ireland title for 35 years.
