Just got back from Sunderland v Carlisle at the Stadium of Light. It wasn’t a bad game, and Sunderland won 3-1 to progress into the next round of the cup. I’ve missed watching live football so it was good to be back there, and I think Vanna enjoyed the experience too. She wasn’t too impressed by the quality on offer, but I reckon she’d go again if we had the opportunity. Maybe if Chelsea did another US tour I could persuade her to make the trip to one of the games….hmm. We’ll see.
As promised, I brought my camera with. I was too uncomfortable to take photos during the game (I don’t like playing the tourist!), but I got plenty beforehand. Enjoy.
