Not being ones to take pleasure in others misfortunes…usually.

We have to make an exception as we celebrate the news of our favourite mackem tango man, Mr.Sunbed himself, Phil Brown.

Sacked by Preston North End yesterday, he will always be remembered for his total lack of class when Hull fluked survival at our expense and he took to the field to sin in celebration. In reality he should have slunk away to count his blessings that there was a club as ridiculous as Newcastle United to postpone their relegation by one year, after the total collapse Brown presided over.

Joining that other mackem (Brucey) on the scrapheap we wondered if you had any suggestions for songs in tribute to Phil Brown, our starter for ten is…’Here Comes The Sun(bed)’. Over to you.
