PADCAST: Back the Toon Army to win a fiery Tyne-Wear Derby

by Josh Powell | October 18, 2012

THE BIG ENEMY: Pardew and O’Neill are no strangers to the passion of the Tyne-Wear Derby

Listen here |

Crunching tackles, miss-timed lunges and off-the-ball handbags. This sounds like just an average Padcast but this week it’s a whole lot more with two monster derbies coming up this weekend.

Newcastle legend Mick Martin joins the lads to talk about Newcastle’s chances as the Toon Army head up to Sunderland in what Mick describes as ‘The country’s best derby game’.

The former Magpies captain doesn’t believe any other derby comes close to the passion and rivalry in the North-East and says that Martin O’Neill’s side should fear the Mackem Slayer Shola Ameobi.

Not only is he a hero on Tyneside but Mick Martin works as an Ireland scout and has had plenty of dealings with the man at the eye of the storm Giovanni Trapattoni. He tells us why Trap should be in charge of the Irish team and what the future holds for the nation.

We take some time to look ahead to Chelsea’s visit to Spurs where AVB will be hoping to get one over on his former employers and Barry Lenihan hits us with some mega stats from the Capital.

Best of all, last week we tipped up a phenomenal six-fold! We’re back with some more blinding tips this week as thankfully, we have the Premier League back in our lives.
