It's a great day to be a Mag as Sunderland's day goes from bad to worse.

First, it was revealed that the bar which will accommodate the Newcastle fans at the Stadium of Light on Saturday was being decked out in Black and White signs and now the club could be facing a fine after a printing error on their tickets that has Geordies howling.

The backlash over the redesign at the bar has apparently worked and is being pulled down already, but photos exist on the internet so the damage is already done there.

They don't even know what league they're in

But the printing error remains and that's the one that could see the club in hot water.

The above tweet gives a bit more back story to the redecoration but then goes on to point out the amazing blunder on the matchday ticket.

Not only have they printed league information on them rather than FA Cup, but they even got their own league wrong printing League One on the ticket. You honestly couldn't make it up.

Thanks for the entertainment

Well, you could make it up, and there is always a chance some cheeky Newcastle fan has made it up and photoshopped it, but it's still a laugh isn't it?

If nothing else, that lot down the road are keeping us entertained.

We just have to hope that their players are equally useless on the pitch on Saturday.
