Looked to be a tremendous goal for Sunderland... but the Wycombe goalie Stockdale made a dreadful mistake.

Stockdale? What is he, about 63? Must be on his 30th club.

Just turned in on and caught the last 5 minutes of the first half. Couldn't see Simms. Did he start? Is he playing?

Edit: just listened to the half time review. Apparently should have scored?

Yes, Danny, he looked an awful lot like Calvert-Lewin, coming in a little late and overstretching to collide with ball and post.

Maybe if our cross-dresser does leave us, Frank can promote Ellis to be a starter?

Seems more of Rangers pressing now... that lad Lundstram looks familiar.

Meanwhile, at Wembley, I don't think we'll see Nathan Broadhead unless Wycombe get a goal.

And how on earth did Wycombe not score then? Golden chance for Volkes.

Broadhead on with 3 minutes left, replacing the second goal-scorer, Stewart.

Good article in the Athletic on Lundstram, Michael, titled "John Lundstram: The Scouse Viking who has gone from outcast to ‘best on earth' at Rangers"

A good example of a player who doesn't give up and opted to drop down a few divisions to make the journey back.

Nice touch about him hearing about his former youth team having their container in Garston set on fire. He wasn't on Premier League wages but personally gave the coach £1,000 to help.

Alex Neil was at Goodison the other night.

Simms played well considering he was more or less up front by himself marked by the two Rangers centre-halves. Held the ball up well. Could have scored after 10 minutes, sliding in at the back post. Led with his right foot and ball hit the post, had he gone in with his left may well have gone in.

Lundstram played really well as he did in the Europa League Final.

MotM was Calvin Bassey, by far, as was against Frankfurt on Wednesday.

Peter Reid was at the Sunderland game. He must be happy after seeing those 2 wins.
