Sunderland Echo Column: Sunderland’s special derby success to savour

Today’s piece comes from Gareth Barker.


THAT was special.


Speaking to Gus afterwards, he said it’d be tough to choose between a 3-0 and a win like yesterday’s.


It was an “I was there” moment that will send every Sunderland supporter into the Christmas period thinking Santa Claus came four days early; an unforgettable moment.


The derby is made for players like Adam Johnson.


He’s enjoyed himself at St James’s twice before, but his goal yesterday was the moment we all dream of as kids – score a last-minute winner in front of the Gallowgate to spark magnificent scenes up in the heavens.
