In 1988, in the relative calm before the storm that was the Stone Roses, Ian Brown came out with the line ‘It’s not where you’re from, it’s where you’re at’.

Mundane announcements like the release of the new kit and fixture lists become intensely debated because there is nothing else to discuss.

Anything interesting happening, like transfers, are going on behind...

There was something typically Sunderland about the Play-Off Final. The initial ecstasy which gradually faded over an hour and a half, until it became to devastation at the death. It was reassuringly familiar, if not completely soul destroying. It still hurts, and I can’t say I’ve watched the highlights back, but I’m getting over it as we all are.

Tempers have calmed since that Sunday night...
