A Season To Remember
« on: Feb 25, 2009, 10:04 »
ESPN Classic this week are showing games from the 1999/2000 Premiership season in their series "A Season To Remember". Overnight (or early this morning if you like) they showed a thirty mins highlight program with the Tyne/Wear derby from August of that season. I dunno if the channel is broadly available in the UK but just in case it is they'll show the program again later today.

It was the game played in the biggest downpour I can remember seeing on the telly where especially in the second half the ball stopped in puddles all over the pitch. The game where Gullit decided to leave both Shearer and Ferguson on the bench. And the game where my beloved Mickey looked like the sweetheart he really is, completely soaked from the bad weather... aww.

When I watched the program early this morning I had tears of joy in my eyes and though it's a half hour show only I hope some of you guys get a chance to watch it as well taking a walk down Memory Lane with me, too.

NUFC v SAFC from the 1999/2000 season on ESPN Classic today at 1.10pm and again at 5.25pm. Repeated Saturday as well at 11.30pm

Incidentially next week their series "A Season To Remember" will also feature the Lads. This time away at Man City in the 2000/2001 season. It must've been a good game to be chosen with just four other games from the season but I'm ashamed to admit I can't remember the game myself :oops:

Sunderland finished 7th that season, Man City were relegated.

The match was played on Wednesday August 23rd 2000. Man City won it 4-2. I think Kinkladze tore us apart that night.

It was the second game of the season. We'd beaten Arsenal 1-0 on the opening day with a goal from Quinn. City were thrashed 4-0 at Charlton.

I was wrong. Kinkladze didn't play. It was a Paolo Wanchope hat-trick that did the damage. We were 2-0 down at half time, got it back to 2-2 thanks to Quinn and Phillips, then Wanchope scored twice in the last 12 minutes.

The last game of the last Championship season was 5-0 against Luton. They must have been really poor because Daryl Murphy scored twice.  :wink:

The Chelsea game - half way line is a bit of an exaggeration, but he was a good way out (25-30 yards?). The goalkeeper that day was actually Ed de Goeij, not Cudiccini. That was the best half of football I've ever seen Sunderland play. Quinn took the p**s out of Desailly all game. He and Phillips got a couple each, de Goeij only stopping Phillips notching a hat trick goal with an amazing save late on. The win took us to 4th in the table. We were also 2-0 up against Man Utd (the same season?) after about 10 minutes, but they got a 2-2 draw from a jammy Scholes fluke. A certain Roy Keane got the first, just before half time.

Quinn's goalkeeping exploits were at Bradford City IIRC, for about 20 mins in the 2nd half. We held on to win 1-0 in the mud. He did it for Man City as well when he was with them.

Newcastle had plenty of memories in the early 90s. They'll always claim European appearances that we can still only dream about at the moment, but they've never reached those heights since and are going backwards at the moment.

No offence taken. You asked if I remembered, I just remembered differently to you. There were several things that you didn't quite recall, I just didn't want you going through the rest of your life with those misconceptions, only to maybe lose your shirt on them later.  8)  I was fortunate enough to be at the Chelsea game you mention and it was like a dream to be 4-0 up at half time to a team that were one of the top teams in the Premier League, stuffed with stars. Particularly satisfying when they'd crushed us 4-0 at their place in the opener of the season. Poyet, who'd scored against us in the game at Stamford Bridge, got the consolation in the second half, but we were cruising by then.

PS. Eduard "Ed" Franciscus de Goeij is the correct Dutch spelling of his name, but he is usually referred to as "Ed" de Goey in the English media. This led to him being referred to as "Ed the Goalie".
