I tweeted earlier about how I was going to bite the bullet and go myself, I tagged him and sunderland in (first time, just as a way of showing support). I’m not easily gobsmacked but I got this tweet in reply “Fantastic. I am sure we could organise a visit to him if he can’t make it to us - if you think it is possible. Just send me a DM and if there is anything u would like us to do we will try. Thank him from me for his support. I can try and pop and see him before the game Sunday ?” There will always be debate about intentions, money, motives. But this is something he just didn’t have to do. This is a personal side to football I thought had gone.
