After managing to avoid the drop right at the end of the season following a 0-0 draw with Arsenal, Sunderland fans only wanted one man to manage them next season. Dick Advocaat, who saved their skin after Gus Poyet got the sack.

Sadly for the Black Cats, Advocaat initially turned the chance down, but has since done a U-turn and agreed a one year deal with the club, despite joking that it would cause a divorce between himself and his wife, so now the kind-hearted and seriously relieved fans have set up a GoFundMe page to buy her flowers.


The page has raised £2,300 despite there being an initial target of £150, and while Mrs Advocaat might be dreaming of a house filled with flowers, the fans will spend £150 on the flowers and then the rest of the cash raised will be donated to charity, with one charity of her choice and SAFC’s Foundation Of Light being the lucky recipients.

Amazing stuff.
