22nd January

Well that’s a turn up for the books! Sunderland beat Manchester United in the semi final of the Capitol One Cup. They’d been 2-1 up after the first leg at the Stadium of Light and during the second leg only conceded one goal during the 90 minutes leaving it 2-2 and forcing extra time.

With one minute to go and penalties looking likely Sunderland scored to put them in what looked like a winning position but it was short lived as Man U equalised two minutes later in injury time. Sunderland eventually came out on top after a woeful penalty shoot out where only three of the ten penalties went in.

We face Manchester City in the final……….
