Cheers Piston.... I often sport the red & white tie but the T shirt is food for thought! Bit gutted that you thought my accent pointed to the Mags (surely not)... Especially as it was first forged in deepest Dawdon Colliery in Seaham although it was polluted for a few years when the folks moved to Low Fell when I was in my teens. To my ears, it's far more Wear than Tyne!!
i'm was so sick of hearing about the mr hall's "geordie nation", sky's "toon army" and the magedia i didn't think it would be possible for a sunderland fan to get a job in the national press so assumed you were a mag. i apologise sincerely. i'll put you in the list of famous sunderland fans, in between kate adie and steve cram.
keep up the good work.
