Sunderland in Wonderland as Big Dick sticks one up the Arsenal
19th May 2020…… Still no footie, BIG meeting yesterday concluded to have a another BIG meeting soon. Just have to wait a bit longer to see if they decide it’s safer for 19 men to challenge for a header from a corner, before it’s safe to have a haircut?
19th May 2015…… Much happier times, a trip to London to watch the lads. A 3pm in London is great fun, sadly due to being in the FA Cup Semis, (them not us), this was rescheduled for midweek. This is a pain as it becomes a drive rather than the train and invariably means a 3.30am arrival home. Thankfully it’s live on SKY, so SAFCBlog did the sensible thing and headed South.
Arsenal is a strange trip as it’s like there’s no game on, (we always walk from Stoke Newington), then you turn the corner and there’s a 60’000 seater stadium.
We needed a draw, we got a draw.
Turned out to be a memorable night, here’s the SAFCBlog account of the game….
Arsenal Away 20/05/15
The previous Saturday, Leicester City had secured survival with a 0~0 draw at SOL. Fair dos Leicester… survival a great achievement? Season 2015/16 will be tough for them though? Hopefully they can limp to 4th bottom? (Failing that they could win the league? Fucking bonkers!!!!)
We need 1 point from 2 games. Arsenal and Chelsea Away! Having secured a free day, an early morning game of golf, (sports game played once your legs are fucked), is followed by an 11am departure for North London.
As per all trips to Highbury Emirates, parking is secured courtesy of Pete Brandon, (York City supporting media type), who lives near the ground. Always go to same pub ~ can’t remember what’s it’s called though.
Match panned out as follows……
Bit pissed to properly analyse the game/we miss 2 best chances/they have loads of pressure, but overplay it & fuck about / finishes 0~0/ tremendous result
Next time Decent games revisited 8/8…… Norwich 0 Sunderland 3
IN JACK WE TRUST
And it’s something so good, Just can’t function no more?
