      A Sunderland away shirt would be good. Your mates can then collect you from A&E after you've had the bowling ball surgically removed from your bottom.

      If they tonk us tomorrow, you may well reconsider wearing it anyway

      Turning to the good folk of NSC for some wise advice, if I may.

      I have a business trip to Newcastle next Tuesday - 5 of us from Telford to meet up with business colleagues in Newcastle.
      We do this monthly and always go out somewhere for a few beers and some nosh in the evening.
      Last time there was a bit of banter about the top of the Championship - all light hearted / fun.
      Next Thursday we're going to "Lane 7" for some retro bowling / night out

      So, would I be silly / provocative if I wore my black [Brighton away] shirt?
      Newcastle are playing that night, away at Reading - so will most serious Magpies be out of town or glued to their radios?
      I'm not one to go looking for trouble - 55 y/o pot-bellied male - but wearing a Brighton shirt in the heart of Newcastle city centre on a Tuesday night - would that be asking for trouble?
      Or would it make for banter / conversation? Whey Aye!

      Thoughts .....
      Sounds like you would know Newcastle better than most on here. I would not even know where to get a nosh.

      Go for it. When you have left the place, hearty smiles and back slaps all round, why not consider getting hold of a Palace shirt (with Murray's name on the back) and popping along to a game at the Amex, late in the season, especially if we have choked and slipped into a playoff slot, and try a bit of banter in the North, by strutting around at half time, kissing the badge and provocatively wiggling your arse. Everybody loves a bit of bants.

      I have never had a problem wearing my Albion colours out and about up here but I guess it depends exactly where you will be drinking after your bowling. If we turn them over tomorrow some might think you're taking the Mick and take offence but I wouldn't worry to much. Go for it.

      Although you are going bowling, are you likely to end up somewhere watching the match? If so, it depends on you and your clients, can you keep a big grin on and will they back you up if there is trouble. Oh and will you lose any business?

      Some heavily p*ssed-up bloke might not take too kindly to it. Is it worth having a decent evening spoiled? Not just for you either but those around you

      No disrespect but I don't understand why anyone over the age of 18 would wear a football shirt full stop let alone on a night out?
      Is the right answer
      I surrender all control
      To the desire that consumes me whole
      Leads me by the hand to infinity
      Lies in wait at the heart of me - the Albion of course !

      Why make yourself a target?
      Was my question - will it make me a target? Your view is obviously yes - thanks.

      No disrespect taken, what would you suggest, bobble hat and scarf? I get that replica shirts can be seen as a bit of a yoof / kids thing, but the black away shirt makes for casual wear at whatever age IMHO.

      I'm a Brighton supporter, that doesn't automatically make me stupid .... why on earth would I wear a Sunderland shirt?

      Not that kind of client / business meeting - we all work for HMRC, but the team is split between Telford, Southend and Newcastle. So they're not clients in the traditional sense and no loss of business is at risk. "Back me up?" half of them are over-fifty females - I'll let you decide ...

      I'll defer my decision and await outcomes of Tuesday and next weekend. - I'll err on the side of caution and probably give it a miss - wouldn't want to jeopardise my recent 4k teeth implant work ...

      Thanks for sharing your thoughts with me ....
