VIDEO: Excited for Sunderland? Here’s why you should be

It’s been a few weeks since I could do a dog walk video, but I felt I ought to this morning.

At 7.20 am I was on Radio Lincolnshire discussing today’s game and I think Carla Greene was a little surprised I wasn’t more excited. Maybe it was because I hadn’t drunk my morning tea, or maybe it was for other reasons.

I recall not being excited when we went to Everton in the FA Cup Third Round a few years ago, and regretting it once I finally got there. This is very much the same, and I needed to convince myself that just because we can’t actually go to Wembley if we win tonight, it shouldn’t devalue the occasion at all.

See if you agree.
