Okay can I just put an end to all this Mackem bashing. Im a Mackem and proud of it, I was born in Peterlee and I love it up here. Yeah I admit we havent got the best football team in the world and there are the usual scum who live in the city but arent all cities the same? Name me one city in Britain which hasnt got a scum element. I bet you cant name one! The majority of Sunderland people are a friendly bunch, where as Newcastle people are a bunch of arrogant wankers who think they are better than everyone else. They hate everyone who lives outside of a mile radius of the Tyne!!
