That was one hell of a long day, isn't it possible to fly to Sunderland ,it's like 300 miles by road ? At least a draw made the journey home more enjoyable I am sure.
It's a shame the replay is going to be played midweek , so few people can travel three hundred miles on a Tuesday, but I think we should still get a good crowd of Gills fans for the replay.

Seem to remember that they virtually sold out the away end for our Tuesday night league game last season - although their fans are more focused on the league than cup , so wouldn't expect as many this time .

i always said unemployment benefits and Social Security paid out way ,way too much, lol. I am just joking , it would be nice to get a crowd of say 8,000 to watch us win and get to play who in the second round, when is that draw ?

Talking about distances, until recently, Perth Glory had the longest distance in the world for a league fixture. That's away to Wellington Phoenix which if Gillsfan doesn't know, is in Wellington, New Zealand. It's known over here as the long distance derby. I think it's now been beaten by a Russian team.

Yes, they brought nearly 2,000 if I recall for a Tuesday night league game albeit during the summer holidays. Given that they only had 8,000 there for a Saturday afternoon game, they won't bring that much. Although there is a house that backs on to the Rainham End who has Sunderland stickers in his living room window so they are likely to have at least 1!
