We're on Ha'way to Wembley

Simon Grundy in the morning

Here’s what you missed........

“Que Sera Sera, whatever will be will be, we’re going to Wembley, Que Sera Sera”

Did something amazing happen last night for the North East that I might have missed???? Aw yeah, Ant and Dec won another award at the NTA’s (yawn). It seems that was the only thing the Geordies would have been celebrating......(cue evil laugh, “mwaaaaaahhhhhh”.)

Total football overload on the show this morning, like the rest of Sunderland, Simon and I stayed up to watch the entire match so as you can guess we’re shattered. It wasn’t a dream........we’re going to WEMBLEY. All I can say is, “Well Done Sunderland”!!! We definitely deserved to win. I’m not going to lie, that penalty shoot out was appalling but it still has to be the most exhilarating game of football I’ve ever seen. I watched it in the comfort of my local where grown men were crying when Mannone saved Rafael’s penalty. Chairs were knocked over, drinks were spilt and I lost my folks somewhere amongst the crowd of strangers hugging strangers; overall, a fantastic, nail biting game of football. Not only did the players do us proud last night, but the 9000 fans that travelled down definitely kept up the tempo. All you could hear throughout the match were Sunderland chants! I can’t imagine what the trip back home was like on those coaches, there’ll definitely be some sore throats and heads this morning, and I don’t think anyone will be complaining about it.

On Facebook and Twitter this morning we had to ask how you were planning on celebrating today after the amazing result last night. Unsurprisingly the majority of you are hoping to catch up on some sleep. A couple of you are actually trying to book trains and hotels for Wembley and the tickets haven’t even gone on sale yet!

In non related football news, Faye Tozer joined us in the studio this morning for a quick chat about Singin’ in the Rain. She is absolutely lovely and is over the moon to be performing in what is now her home town. Don’t panic if you missed it, you can catch it on our Listen Again page!

Enjoy your day of celebrations!
