Very poor show by the sounds of it…….I stuck around and can't recall a more half-arsed walkabout (very fitting, given our second half) and presentation.
The ever-alert PA played 'Can't Help Falling In Love...' as the players came back out - to the delight of the Sunderland fans who drowned out the few Nobbers left in the rain.
The trophies were presented from a shitty cardboard box (I kid you not), the announcer looked scruffy as hell, Ben Rhodes stood around with his hands in his pockets and the whole thing had a Sunday League air about it.
As tinpot as tinpot gets, but nobody pitchside seemed to either notice or give a shit.
I couldn’t hang around because I didn’t want to miss the shuttle bus back to Leyland but it sounds like a very amateur affair..
Those players receiving awards deserved better than that..
