Well done Sunderland
Very pleased for Sunderland yesterday. Jealous they have made their way finally out of this graveyard of a division, but in Alex Neil they finally found the right man after a merry-go-round of duds. I hope they are able to stay up and progress back to where they belong and that their new owners can rid the club of the last lot.
An historic club with proper fans, both humble and knowledgeable. Congratulations to the Black Cats.
Wycombe were pretty dire though, and remembering that last time they beat Oxford in an empty stadium, yesterday they were well beaten on the big stage heavily owned by masses of Sunderland fans.
Gareth Ainsworth has been mentioned in Charlton quarters, but I can’t imagine his teams play in any style that Thomas Sandgaard desires.
Selfishly losing Sunderland from L1 is better for any chances we may have next season. I expect Wycombe to be weaker than this season.
In L2 Swindon were knocked out by Port Vale on penalties with Josh Davison missing his penalty kick, which was the 10th, which if he’d scored would’ve sent Swindon through. As it was Port Vale persevered to win 6-5. Vale will meet Mansfield Town at Wembley, the only ground of the four in the L2 play-off’s I haven’t been to.
Swindon manager Ben Garner has also been mentioned in Addicks’ dispatches.
