Correct in a way but we have always had our differences.

Bob Stokoe wouldn't have been bothered about the stuff bothers us nowadays like Mackems and Geordies or top dog rivalry. He was a professional that just done his best and that was perfect for us.

Great memories.

Don't forget that there is the documentary that shows Bob Stokoe and the lads' 1973 cup run here viewtopic.php?f=34&t=493

Then there's the other documentary "Meanwhile Back In Sunderland" here

You can't help but look at the Bob Stokoe statue outside the Stadium of Light when you pass. It is something you just can't ignore. We will never forget Bob Stokoe.
