Rochdale v Sunderland review

After a tremendous Wednesday at Accrington; we’re headed in the same direction- this time to Rochdale. Late change of plan – ordered some hospitality as I’m having to combine football with childcare. Having sported trainers in Club Wembley on Sunday – Rochdale advise “strictly no trainers!”.

Groomed and ready for Rochdale v Sunderland!!

Queue for fucking ages to collect tickets – Rochdale don’t post them out; which is really handy when you live 80 miles from the SOL. Still at least they’ve prepared for the situation….. have they hell – 2 girls handing out tickets, (I’ve never worked in a ticket office – but if I did I’d implement a system of putting the tickets in alphabetical order!)

Tickets collected – let the fun begin
