On Monday April 17 at 3pm it's all go at the Stadium of Light for Sunderland and Newcastle fans.
The Tyne-Wear Derby has been played a total of 136 times since 1898, with Newcastle winning six times over Sunderland.
Last year Newcastle won by 3-2 - is 2006 Sunderland's year to win?
As a Sunderland fan, is this the highlight of the season, getting up close and chummy with your footballing neighbours or is it like having your enemies in your backyard?
