What time is it? FIVE past Sunderland
As derbies go, this one will be right up there with the best of them.
The same pages of Geordie folklore that contain chapters for stars like Liam O'Brien, Emre, Scott Sellars, David Kelly, Andy O'Brien, Alan Shearer and Peter Beardsley to name but a few, Shola Ameobi updated his own section and was joined by super Kevin Nolan in a 5-1 win that well and truly put Sunderland in their place.
Chris Hughton's position had been put under the spotlight this week as questions and stick have not been in short supply.
Well Hughton answered those critics.
And so did his team.
And if TalkSport pundit Jason Cundy had have ventured north of Watford Gap to come up and experience it, he'd have known just why the Toon Army are the best at what they do as the Geordie public raised the roof at St James' Park.
Newcastle's fans in Cundy's opinion, are not that "special" but even Londoner Hughton, a veteran of Arsenal-Spurs derbies aplenty, admitted he'd never experienced anything quite like it with United in full control and crusing at 5-0.
By the time Bent had scored at the death, nobody cared and many of the Sunderland fans had long since departed their seats.
As days in the office go, they don't come any better than this.
