Mackem misfortune continues

While Saturday was notable chiefly for our 2-0 win over Chelsea (Paul's match report to come), there was also plenty of cheer in the fact that absolutely nothing went right for the Mackems: an injury to their goalkeeper, two red cards (one to Lee Clattermole, of course) and a 1-0 defeat to Hull secured by an own goal and celebrated by two Geordies in the Tigers' ranks, 'keeper Steve Harper and former Mackem manager Ol' Cauliflower Face. It was a result that leaves them in 19th, with only the hapless Crystal Palace beneath.

And yet our amusement was tempered by disappointment and regret - after all, it makes it all the more embarrassing that we gifted them three points last weekend.
