Newcastle supporter coach to Wembley overtakes Sunderland fans on motorway
Newcastle fans travelling to Wembley bumped into rival Sunderland fans on the motorway – and the outcome was inevitable.
The Toon Army were en route to London to soak up the atmosphere ahead of the Magpies League Cup final clash with Manchester United on Sunday. And their clash with the Black Cat supporter's on the motorway was the perfect way to fire them up ahead of the match.
As they encroached on the capital, the coach filled with Toon supporters spotted the Sunderland bus stocked up with their rivals, setting the stage for a hostile few minutes between the bitter foes. With the coach edging closer, the amped-up Toon fans started spewing 'f*** off' barbs towards the Sunderland coach amid a slew of other inaudible slurs in the clip.

It was the most action the Black Cat fans saw on Saturday following their team's 2-1 loss to Coventry. Meanwhile, Newcastle have the chance to gain bragging rights over their rivals if they manage to see off United in the final tomorrow.
