The club have announced that any fan in possession of a valid match ticket can take up the offer, with complimentary buses departing from the Stadium of Light on the afternoon of the game.

Sunderland, who hold a 2-1 lead after the first leg of the semi-final, will also cover the cost of official supporters' branch buses, along with those from the SAFC Supporters' Association and fans organisations ALS and 73.

Black Cats chief executive Margaret Byrne said: "With such a good cup run and the congested festive fixture list, there has been a large number of games in a short space of time and we appreciate how expensive it has been for our supporters.

"We hope this gesture will help as many fans as possible to get behind Gus and the team at Old Trafford."

Sunderland anticipate they will take 150 buses to Old Trafford and they will leave the Stadium of Light at 2pm and return directly after the game.

e have the personnel. The trick is keeping them fit. Carrick and Blind have missed large chunks of the season, while the defence has been one muddled mess of intermittent stooges, all coming and going at various intervals thus far. We may be just short of title winning quality, but we're half way through. An injury crisis to either of the top two could change things. Optimistic, yes, but not unrealistic.

arish is the man to blame for this shambles. Pulis must be chuckling into his left over turkey sandwich. I pray this doesn't mean the Neil Warnock media machine will kick in now and he'll be back on the telly box.

e almost found a new way to lose, just when I thought it was getting boring Giroud does that. Although Arsenal are deservedly called 'soft' the entire midfield is out injured. Still must admit MU are managing to win despite a similar raft of absentees. Think the Gunners have good players but poorly coached.
