Re: Sunderland FC
I am with you Davy on not wanting to see Sunderland where they are! Happy always for NUFC to beat them, of course, but not have them languishing in the lower leagues.
I must say that I dont know where the sobriquet "The Toon" came from or when.
I first saw NUFC at St J's on 1951 and even in the sixties and seventies I never heard it.
"The Toon" was a rougher form of Geordie that, in my time, wasn't spoken in Jarrow or Hebburn.
