Random boring anomalies from Sunderland games..


Hit the wall at work so my mate sends me some train spotter random facts involving SAFC games.
1. 73 Cup final yellow ball.. why?
2. QPR home game 1979 when they ran out in our blue away strip
3.Leeds at home 1980 4-1 when all the printed numbers were peeling off the players shirts like a pub team kit!
Sad as fuck I know but anyone got anymore?....
Was it not because they played in all white and confusion with a white ball blending with their socks?

People thinking Big Sam "saved us from relegation" when he was actually in charge for 8 months of a 10 month season and we finished lower than where we were when he took the job.

That derby match against the mags at the SoL when an actual
Magpie flew around the pitch and perched on the cross bar.

That was pretty weird

Not won a game a home game all season.

8th April:
Sunderland 0-1 Fulham.

Game gets abandoned due to heavy snow in April.

The replay is our final home game of the season. We're already relegated. We're still yet to win at home.

4th May:
Sunderland 2-1 Fulham.

Keegans return from Hamburg. Sunderland game had to be delayed because 2 of the Southampton players took to the field with the same number. Ivan Golac I think left and changed his shirt.
