Poyet - Mags Hate Me Even More!
Sunderland's win further enhanced Gus Poyet's reputation as the scourge of Newcastle and extended his 100 per cent managerial record against the Magpies to three games.
Gus Poyet: "You know what, they asked me before the game and I thought 'it's not going to change now when I need three points'.
"I don't know why, but I am sure they are going to hate me even more. I don't know why or how it happens. Sometimes there is no explanation."
Opposite number Alan Pardew: "When we got the equaliser, the more the game went on the more control we got.
"We had two or three good chances, I thought, at 1-1 and if we got the second goal, the game was over because they would have been dead.
"Unfortunately for us, we didn't get that second goal. Unfortunately, the referee played a part in this defeat as well because that was definitely not a free-kick in my opinion.
"The linesman gave us a throw, the ref gave a foul and I think one or two of ours switched off.
"They certainly didn't think there was a foul, the boys, and then they just slipped through us and the one chance they had second half, he smashed it in, so it's a really tough one for us to take."
