Put a man in a cage and he will act like an animal. The Irish have the best idea. Everyone regardless of their affiliations enjoys the day together and guess what... No trouble.

But this is Sunderland! I've never witnessed such ar*ehole football fans as them (agressive and horrible). Appear to have a chip on their shoulder about something....

I really do feel sorry for anyone else wanting to go in one of those pubs on that day, along with the poor people having to share East Coast/Grand Central trains back home to the North-East with them.

Sunderland had played away against Chelsea in 2007 when I was on the last train from London back to the north-east, and it was full of drunks hurling abuse at staff and other passengers. We ended up waiting at York for 40 minutes while Police 'de-trained' an entire coach full of yobs.

Nice to see a couple of comments slating Sunderland fans. I thought it was the team up the road that had the troublesome fans, wrecking their own town when the results don't go their way. Why don't people accept that one team from the north east has a chance of some success. It's about time a team from our football mad area won a major trophy. After all, not all football fans are the same.

As a Tottenham fan I've had trouble twice at the SoL but never felt even threatened at Boro or Newcastle. Newcastle is a great place to go as an away fan - the Geordie supporters realise they're a big club and have nothing to prove. I've even had chew with Sunderland at York train station when they were on the back from somewhere! I was with my bird but they still got abusive and thought they were clever cos there was loads of them, amazing people...
