Yeah, we're a day late. Things got of hand. I'm not normally a Kronenburg fan, but we had many cans of it. It is an expression of who we are. It's Saturday night after the Stadium of Light. It is being lost in drink, a soft hiss of depressurisation. It is relief and jubilation. It's toasting our friends, family, heroes, club. It is the end of something - a party 2 years in the making.
Tonight's win may be for a minor trophy, but it is yet another example of the transformation happening at the Stadium of Light and it's brilliant.
You ever start eating a bar of chocolate, eat one piece and give the rest away? Very likely not and for once Sunderland decided not to go one goal up and gift their opponents the rest of the fun (and it was bloody brilliant).
What a game, what a result and what a couple of performances. It's Player Ratings & Comments time!
You've got me to review the ratings and comments left on the back of Tuesday's nonsense. We were left a total of 427 comments on player performances, a season high so thanks to those who took part - we really appreciate that and the support that gives to our content.
Kyril Louis-Dreyfus did the normal thing that rich folk do and visited Shrewsbury on a freezing cold Tuesday evening to watch Sunderland surrender more points in pathetic fashion.
A couple of days ago, Sunderland ran out 3-0 winners against MK Dons in the quarter-final of the EFL Trophy. Yesterday in the league, in this unbearable, darned league that we have spent more years than we ever dreamed of trying to escape; We ended up drawing 2-2, bloody hell.
After a comfortable pizza trophy win against MK Dons, the Lads couldn't replicate the result when it mattered most.
Do I need a tin hat for this one?
After watching Sunderland Till I Die, it reminded me that once upon a time I thought it was a good idea to reword the theme tune for the Fresh Prince of Bel Air
