MGA1975: The irony of #nufc fans being goaded by #safc fans with 'Enjoy Burton' when we were relegated only for 2 years later Burton to send the mackems in to league 1 where Accrington Stanley will play #karma

@sdoddsy 3: Given how #Newcastle fans were taunted by #Sunderland fans about having to play #Burton when #NUFC were relegated from the Premiership; there’s a beautiful symmetry about today’s #SAFC result.

@willso93: As an #NUFC fan, gloating aside, it's a real tragedy to see #SAFC get relegated. I love a good derby day. Funny that it had to be Burton though.

@Kev_Reay: Next season #NUFC under 23 reserves could #safc in the checkatrade trophy at Darsley Park. Let that sink in.

@johndefatkin: What have Newcastle Utd and Sunderland got in common? They both made it out of the Championship after only one season #nufc #safc #karma

@basherbate 17: A DIY shop in @SunderlandAFC is selling SAFC wallpaper for 10p a roll with a notice saying "not guaranteed to stay up" #safc #NUFC

@fitz942: I seem to remember thousands of mackens saying enjoy Burton!!! I’m a great believer in what goes around comes around. Hope they enjoy Accrington!! #NUFC @SunderlandAFC #SAFC #Sunderland

@ianmmccabe: Torn on #SAFC getting relegated. You want NE teams to do well, & we have our own troubles to worry about at #NUFC. But the comic timing and poetry of this unreal. Karma hates the Mackems right now, eh? Unbelievable.
