I read that if they do go down that could be the end of the road as won't survive financially.

It#s certainly been a rapid fall.

 

I started to support the team back in the early 70's during the Don Revie golden era. Always the bridesmaid; you got used to coming second though. I bought shares in the old holding company (Caspian) and that investment all went pear shaped and I lost the lot.

 

In memory of the glory days:

 

Gary Sprake

Paul Reaney

Terry Cooper

Billy Bremner

Jack Charlton

Paul Hunter

Peter Lorimer

Alan Clarke

Mick Jones

Johnny Giles

Eddie Gray

 

Also in the squad you had Paul Madeley & Terry Yorath

CLASSIC CUP FINALS: Sunderland pulled off one of the great shocks when they beat Leeds United 1-0 in 1973.

The FA Cup Final

05 May 1973

Wembley

 

Leeds, superlatively efficient matured in the conflicts of the First Division and of European competition, a team with ten international players, came to Wembley as Cup holders, for their third Final in four years.

 

Suderland came from the Second Division, and when their new manager, Bob Stokoe, took over in the season, they were third from bottom.

 

No Second Division side had won the Cup for more than 40 years. None of the 'expert' observers, and few even of the romantics - outside Sunderland - gave them anything but the faintest hope of winning. Yet, at Wembley, feeling triumphed over reason and Sunderland won by a single goal.

 

The turf was wet, and the game started in heavy rain. Surprisingly, early on, it was the Leeds passes that went astray. Sunderland, with Horswill and Porterfield already prominent in midfield, were quick in tackling and interception. Bremner, the Leeds captain, was hurried out of his stride, uncharacteristically beaten in the tackle.

 

Yet, as the game developed, Leeds were better organised in attack, prompted by the accurate passes of Giles. Little was made of the opportunities he offered.

 

The formidable striking power of Jones, Clarke and Lorimer was frustrated by the quickness and determination of a Sunderland defence dominated by the authoritative Watson.

 

It was believed in advance that the skilful Gray would cut Sunderland's right flank to pieces. The forecasts were wrong. Kerr, the Sunderland skipper, dropped back and Gray was eclipsed tro such an extent that late in the game he was replaced by Yorath.

 

For all that, Leeds had their chances, and might have been ahead before Sunderland scored. Clarke, most dangerous of opportunists, was 10 yards out with a clear sight of goal.

 

In the second it took him to shift the ball to his right foot, Watson was in with his tackle and the danger was past.

 

Sunderland's attacks were sharp and sudden. Hughes and Halom chased everything and found each other with instinctive understanding. Behind them, Horswill drove himself relentlessly, shooting at every opportunity.

 

The Leeds defence dealt with these assaults capably. Madeley was in superb form and Hunter showed his characteristic mixture of hardness and constructive thinking. Suderland, however, did not behave like under-dogs, and on the half hour they scored.

 

Harvey, in the Leeds goal, pushed a long shot from Kerr over the bar. Hughes went over to take the corner and with Halom and Watson in the box in order to worry the defenders, the ball flew out to Porterfield.

 

With admirable composure he killed the ball on his left thigh and swung to hit it powerfully home with his right foot.

 

Leeds, as is their nature, fought back with a determined assault just before half-time and with increasingly desperate power through the second half.

 

The turning point of the match was in the 70th minute, when it seemed Leeds would at last be rewarded.

 

A Reaney centre from the right was met by Cherry with a diving header across goal. Montgomery, the Sunderland goalkeeper, an instinctive player of phenomenal reflexes, flew to reach it with his left hand, and palmed it away - straight into the path of Peter Lorimer, who possessed one of the most powerful and accurate shots in the game.

 

Lorimer hit it with full force into what appeared to be the empty goalmouth - but, miracuolously, Montgomery twisted, changed direction and diverted the ball on to the underside of the bar. It bounced clear.

 

The save has been talked of ever since, as has - in Leeds at least - the incident when Bremner, rounding Watson, fell dramatically in the penalty area. The referee, Mr Burns, ignored him.

 

There were anxious moments for Sunderland as Montgomery made further saves from Bremner, Yorath and Cherry. Then Clarke was again robbed when he might have scored.

 

Sunderland held out. More than that, their counter-attacking spirit remained alive. In the last minute only a supreme effort from Harvey in the Leeds goal deflected a Halom shot bound for the angle of bar and post.

    • For those that don't know, I did Friday meetings before many years ago,  I feel like we are missing a regular meeting for members,  I am aware guys meet at PA affiliated bars. But I want to start meeting people again, I'm inviting the guys following my YouTube also.

      The meetings is a chance to get to meet each other,  I plan to be at every meeting, I also have Dean from Dive bar that has offered to help out with a crawl after.
      The meetings will be  Monday  6 pm - 8 pm each week.  (The improvised bar crawl will commence at 8 p.m.  Dean will make his own plans for that.)

      Due to low numbers of people in town, I will start the meetings in our bars to help our girls and managers, please check back often incase things are changed.  I will be sharing the love around town later, but Soi 6 is first on my list (including bars that are friendly competition)   
      If bar owners want us to have a meeting at their bar,  they need to have a minimum of 10 girls.  I'm not dragging people to empty bars for favours.
      Please help us invite other members, it takes a while to get momentum.
      Monday 6 pm - 8pm  (then bar crawl after)
      21st March - Playpen Soi 6
      28th March - Night wish bar Soi 6
