Rejoice, for football is back. Not that fancy World Cup thingy, either. I'm talking about proper football. Sunderland football. Relevant football. Football that includes Alfred N'Diaye. That.
Through the wonders of Youtube and Darlington FC, you can treat yourself to 13 minutes worth of highlights of Sunderland's first preseason friendly of the summer. It was a low-key low-tempo affair, but with a comfortable 5-1 win, strikers scoring, no injuries, and Cabral proving that he wasn't a figment of our collective imaginations after all, it pretty much ticked all the boxes.
Anyway, enough waffling. Just watch it.
