YOUR 'I Was There' Sunderland Moments...

We asked you for your fondest Sunderland memories, regardless of whether they were glorious or daft.

Laurence Griffiths

With such a HUGE game looming this Sunday, we asked you for your 'I was there' Sunderland moments for a chance to win a pair of tickets for the game.

It's fair to say that the response was immense, and we wish we could have published every one but we simply don't have enough time sadly. But please see below for a selection of the responses from the weird to the wonderful. This club, man...

The lucky winner of the tickets has been selected at random and we'll be in contact soon.

Thanks to all who entered! Let's hope for another famous 'I was there' Sunderland moment this weekend, and if you didn't win the tickets them I'd implore you to get some via the ticket office, which you can do by CLICKING HERE.

HA'WAY THE LADS!!
