Idiot. Followers of a shite football team. Tell me: Have you ever seen a mackem in milan? or even on a plane? or even out of prison?
Those poor souls who turn out at the stadium of shite every other saturday (and wednesday seeing as tho theyre in the championship)

A Sunderland supporter.
It is derived from something or other to do with the ship building industry with 'we mackem and ye brackem'.
I'm afraid I'm not sure what this means however.
Come on the mackems!

When God sends people to the human beings to the North East of England, he sorts them into two groups, Geordies and Mackems, or sane and insane, or straight and gay, good-football-supporters and shite-football-supporters, etc.
What do you call one mackem on the moon?
A problem.

What do you call two mackems on the moon?
A bigger problem.

What do you call all the mackems in the world on the moon?
Problem solved.

1)sadly obsessive seat counter who believes football matches are decided on historical attendence figures

2) citizen of medium sized industrial wasteland left cultutally stunted by living in the shadows of TWO vibrant areas with distinct identities.
1) "I see Sunderland got stuffed again"
"Yes but the MACKEMS will be happy with their bumper gate"

2) "I wouldn't fancy living in Baghdad". "Could be worse, you could be a MACKEM"
