Sunderland v Portsmouth – Checkatrade Trophy Final

Setting off for the Checkatrade Trophy Final between Sunderland and Portsmouth

#shouldbehomefortea

Love a trip to London for football; the ‘new’ Wembley is also a decent experience. So… all good; given the ridiculous amount of games in the next 5 weeks – a day trip was deemed as the way forward. Wembley a ‘BIG’ day – but Accrington and Rochdale are ‘BIG’ games; taking into account cost and time – day trip seemed the way forward as don’t want to miss Dale or Stanley.

Regardless of any Tinpot Trophy thoughts, (and yes; when I heard the draw to play the mags whilst watching the rain out of the windows of the Grey Horse in Accrington- I was concerned).

Sunderland v Portsmouth Checkatrade Trophy Final

8 am from York

Breakfast beers

Red and white all over London upon arrival – the more Pompey fans we encountered; the more they seemed to be edgy fuckers looking for trouble? Way forward as always – just ignore the silly twats….. rather than bothering families at Baker Street; I’m sure if they’d headed to O’Neils / Millers it would have been a different story?

Onto Wembley – never one to pass up the opportunity for a selfie…. I had to decline the owners overtures

The new …. &….

….. the old

Checkatrade Trophy Final

1st half – Barca-esque

Thereafter Bradford-esque

Lose on penalties

Wembley decent though

Flyer from Wembley

Bumble around M&S at Kings Cross buying cans and crisps.

6.30pm out of KX

8.18pm in York

Bonkers really….

A lot can be done in a day;

-Go to capital of the country

-Watch a Cup Final

-#iwashomefortea

Huge week ahead. 3 games in 7 days from weds onwards. Lots of talk about tactics of manager etc….

Let’s just smash Accrington, Rochdale and Burton and it’ll be right!? ‘In Jack We Trust’

Wembley a bit of a strange one really – as people don’t need to read an irrelevant/shite account of it: as anyone interested was there?

2 trips to Lancashire this week.

Wham Stadium- Wembley of the North???

Appreciate webpage looks shite – but I’ll get that sorted soon.

Accrington match report to follow thursday
