An extra game

1 Leave a comment on verse 1 0 These magical days of the F A cup when only ten thousand bothered to turn up,
We suppose that’s all the fixture deserves when Sam turned out a team of reserves,
But we earned the chance of another bite and off we go to the stadium of light,
A replay neither club could afford and another hard game to take on board,
Survival is our main concern despite the money the cup can earn,
But it all costs money to see these games and fans don’t turn up if there aint big names,
With Sunderland not being much of attraction which proves by attendance the fans reaction,
But with Blackburn now the prize in await will this increase the Sunderland gate,



Only 10,123 turned up to watch Bolton V Sunderland in the 3rd round of the F A cup,not surprising as the league fixture between the two clubs was a boring encounter plus the fact that Bolton played nine reserves for the clash and there was no price reductions.
