    Think you meant to put this on the Portsmouth board.

    The Sunderland board isn't right for this.

    Edit: misread this like a twat. Thought it was about EFL League One. Turns out it's about the championship as well. Hoping we go up twice this season and my idiocy proves correct. Not holding my breath.

    God I hope we are back in the stadiums by then. Already been over a year since I saw us live. Never thought I'd miss it as much as this. Going to be very ****ing loud first match back. Would be brilliant if we were Friday night game in the championship with a full house under the lights. Show KLD what the matchday experience is all about

    I was hoping that it would be 14th. Daughter's wedding on 7th. Hope we're away that day. I would hate to miss the first game back, but it would be better than missing my bollocks!
