    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.

  2. Nice gesture but is he someone your dad will be that bothered about meeting?
  3. I’ve been critical of the PR, but I’ll hold my hands up. I was wrong. That’s top class

    Fantastic but he knows how famous you and your Dad are so I’m not surprised he wants to pop in :)

    Aye. Saw the exchange on twitter, absolutely fantastic gesture. Particularly liked the bit where you said you weren't often lost for words. Hope everything goes aswell as you can hope for.

    Absolutely brilliant that . I named my oldest middle name Niall . I got in contact with quinny via email and he said he’d sign a few things. A few months later quinny contacted me and said he’d meet in a pub one afternoon. I took the bairn who was nearly 2 at the time and me dad. Walked in to this pub and it was dickie odds stag do. They all had tshirt on. Quinn came over , took us to a table signed all our stuff. Pics taken with the bairn, offered to buy us drinks and then have Daniel ( my lad ) £20. Absolute legend and a brilliant bloke.

    I hope your dads feeling better Janey
