Newcastle United finished their Barclays Premier League season on a high by beating Tottenham Hotspur 5-1.

On the final home fixture of the campaign, the Magpies blew Spurs out of the water thanks to goals from Georginio Wijnaldum, Aleksandar Mitrovic, Rolando Aarons and Daryl Janmaat.

Sunderland fans chose to rub their top flight safety in the faces of their Tyneside rivals by flying a banner over St. James’ Park that read ‘Auf Wiedersehen Prem, Tyne to go’.

The stunt cost around £900 to pull off, money that many Mackams will probably feel is well spent as United will begin the 2016/2017 campaign in the British second tier.

Many United fans took to the airwaves of social media to criticise the fly past, although who’s to say nothing similar would have happened if roles were reversed.
