The 3 home games from 1989-2000. Sadly missed the away game at Arsenal in 2006, unable to get a ticket in the ballot. Gutted at the time. 2 up then held out for a draw, almost the first team to win there.

The 'famous' day back in 1972 when Middlesbrough came to town and only 4,688 came to watch. The smallest ever crowd for a league game and what was possibly the worst ever game - yes I was one of them as was the VP who uses the date as his tag.

Add Reading to Sunderland to the list too.
