Sunderland and Newcastle United haven’t met in the Premier League since 2016, as per 11v11, but that doesn’t prevent fans of the Black Cats reminiscing about some of their team’s great goals in the fixture.
The latest strike they have been enjoying looking back on is Kieran Richardson’s effort in 2008, when he smashed the ball past Shay Given from a free-kick to help earn the club a win:
“A GOAL FROM THE HEAVENS!”

Goals can mean a lot for fans years after they are scored and looking at the replies, that is the case for many Sunderland fans as they look back on it.
A lot of the fans in the comments spoke of what a great day it was, as well as the quality of the strike, with some also claiming that days and moments such as this one will be back eventually, even if it may seem a long way away at times.
A selection of Twitter reaction to the goal, including posts from reminiscing Sunderland fans, can be seen below:
