Idle Thoughts on the FA Cup

I have, on a previous occasion, mentioned the story my Uncle Tommy used to tell, of the day, way back in the early 1930s, when, having finished his shift down the mine, he walked into Sunderland for the big match, paid his tanner to get in and, once inside, would have paid a shilling to get out again, such was the crush inside the ground as Sunderland recorded their biggest-ever attendance. The record books show…
