My favourite Sunderland commentary...
Above I have compiled a video of some of my favourite pieces of commentary on Sunderland games.
1973 Cup Final v Leeds - Ian Porterfield goal
Ian Porterfield scored the only goal in one of the most famous FA Cup finals of all time. Second division Sunderland had beaten the very reputable Leeds United in the infamous tie.
1990 Play-off Semi Final 2nd Leg v Newcastle - Marco Gabbiadini goal
Marco Gabbiadini secured a 0-2 win over our nearest and not so dearest with a placed shot in the 85th minute to send us to the Play-off Final at Wembley.
2000 Newcastle 1-2 Sunderland - Niall Quinn goal
Local lad Micky Gray swung in a delightful cross from the left hand side which landed perfectly on to the head of the big man, who headed home past a flapping Shay Given.
2000 Newcastle 1-2 Sunderland - Your boys took one hell of a beating
Remember Bjorge Lillelien's rant after Norway beat England in 1981? Well Simon Crabtree cleverly bettered that with his own version upon the full time whistle at St. James' Park in 2000.
2003 Derby County 1-1 Sunderland - Mart Poom goal
Mart Poom dramatically equalised for Sunderland against his former club Derby County in the dying minutes of the game in 2003, he came up for a last minute corner and produced a bullet header which saw the ball fly into the back of the Pride Park net.
2006 Sunderland 3-2 Burnley - Carlos Edwards goal
Simon Crabtree again produces another piece of sheer commentary brilliance. He's going to get a reputation for exaggerating the situation!
