Journey 
 
Not too bad on the way up but blindingly good on the trek home. I was dropping a mate off in Tunstall at 8pm! 
8/10 
 
Parking 
 
Once again we parked on the University which is about a 15 minute walk to the ground (via the pub.) ’1.50 to park and great for getting away. 9/10 
 
Atmosphere 
 
Given there was only about 1,000 of us I thought the vocal support was excellent with a special mention of the superb 'oh when the reds' during the second half. 8/10 
 
Pie and pints 
 
We went to our 'usual' in Sunderland which is The Lambton Worm. Good pub and as the lads who were drinking found, it was pretty cheap at ’1.85 for a 'King Goblin'!! As for food the approach to the ground is awash with burger vans, we plumped for an ok-ish hot dog but I suppose at ’1.50 you can't expect too much! 
7/10 
 
Performance and result 
 
We started really well but the first goal knocked us for six and the Mackems dominated the rest of the half. During the second period Stoke had a real go and put our hosts under some serious pressure. Obviously the game was ruined by yet another idiot of an official. Thanks very much Mr. Atkinson! 
 
6.5/10
