    Pretty wild today...first time the team that lost the first leg at home ended up winning...Leeds had the automatic spot in hand with 4 games to go and collapsed...

    The rivalry between the 2 clubs goes back a bit...

    Sunderland won a tense and tetchy tie with Portsmouth 1-0 on aggregate. They will face either Charlton or Doncaster at Wembley for a chance to return straight back to the Championship.

    Sunderland haven't won at Wembley since their 1973 FA Cup Final triumph against the then mighty Leeds United. This was their seventh unsuccessful visit in a row.

    If the same business practices in place during their last Premier stay are still in place today, they'll probably get sent back down again, as quickly as Cardiff and Fulham.

    They are under different ownership now so perhaps things are run better now. Apparently it is an Egyptian firm run by an Egyptian and an American.

    I've done some digging and the three seasons they have just spent in the Championship was their second longest time outside of the top division since they finished 2nd in the very first season of The Football league in 1889. Their worst period was 8 seasons in the late 60s and early 70s when they actually dropped to the third tier.

    Apparently, Villa celebrity fan the Duke of Cambridge (AKA Prince William) was seen celebrating the win.
