Shit tournament now the u23 teams are involved but I was there tonight and will go if we get to Wembley.
is it 1 knockout round then quatersIs a bit of a tin pot tournament when the club cant be bothered to print or programme or at the very list dish team sheets outs, even a basic 10 page publication sold for a quid or £1.50 would have done. I may sound like a dinosaur but I like to have a programme for each senior match I attended
wont happen as the final will be the winner of the Northern section v the winner of the Southern section, my money on a Sunderland v Portsmouth final. With us pumping Newcastle U21's in the Northern section final, which is effectively the semi final from what I can gather
Bobby Gurney would just play for Sunderland regardless. What is your problem?Ironic that bobby gurneys ghost comes out with that crack. The great man would be turning in his grave that we are reduced to playing in this mickey mouse tournament. Title winner, fa cup winner...bet he wish he had the opportunity to add the checkatrade to his honours.
I think it was Methven who said that we cant act the billy big bollocks and need to accept where we are, respect our opponents and earn our way out of it. Being in this competition is very much part of where we are and if you find it 'cringey' then you clearly have not accepted where we are.Serious question. If we won it would you really feel any sense of pride? Being in a position where we are even playing in it is a stain on the clubs history. To celebrate winning it for a club of our stature is cringey as f*ck. We should be keeping our heads down and mouths shut and be looking at putting things right. Its a sad indictment of where standards have slipped to. WE ARE F*CKING SUNDERLAND MAN!! Not some tin pot all club. 6 times english champions!
You taking your wallet to the other side? I don't think they accept Sterling where your'e going.Maybe. It's a shit competition anyway so I'll save my money for next time.
Bar the Fairs cup and the Intertoto certificate.It's the tin pottiest of all of the tin pot trophirs
You sound like a mag tbh.Some arrogance is good mate. Acceptance of sh*te got us here. I dont mean to disrespect the clubs that have competed in or won the competition but they arent comparable to us. Thats just a fact.
It's an absolute embarrassment to be involved in this cup and no I most certainly would not waste my money.I mean 2019....With 35,000 plus others? HAAAAWWWWAAAYYYYYY we're on our way!
Incorrect. It's a joke of a cup.People are saying it's a tinpot trophy etc. but I bet you every penny I have that IF we got to the final they'd be just as excited as everyone else. To say you wouldn't is just being a dick for being a dick's sake.
Exactly. Need to get knocked out of this nonsense cup as soon as possible.Serious question. If we won it would you really feel any sense of pride? Being in a position where we are even playing in it is a stain on the clubs history. To celebrate winning it for a club of our stature is cringey as f*ck. We should be keeping our heads down and mouths shut and be looking at putting things right. Its a sad indictment of where standards have slipped to. WE ARE F*CKING SUNDERLAND MAN!! Not some tin pot all club. 6 times english champions!
The fans have no reason to hang their heads in shameWe should hang our heads in embarassment that we are in the competition. I couldn't give a shite how we do in it, and should use it only as a series of useful fixtures to give injured/fringe players a run out. I will not be going to the final, all giddy to watch a Sunderland fringe team take on Bristol City U23s for the prize of 2 points to the winner.
I know we are in League 1, but we'll end up fucking staying there if we, as some desire, fielding full strength teams and take niggles and fatigue into the league games, all because we wanted to win some rinky dink pub trophy? Would you take finishing 3rd in the league rather than top 2, but got you got your day out in London? I'd rather we rotated so that our best players were available for as many league games as possible.
