In the lead up to the semi final you are going to hear more than a few kopites say that we are favourites to beat them.
Don't believe them. Just get determined to make sure we DO beat them.
The only thing that will matter is the final score. In these games it can easily go either way. But we are just as likely to win 3-0. That's the way derby matches work and always have.
What's important is that we get up for it and shout and sing as loud as we can to support the Toffeemen from beginning to end. If we don't turn up, neither will the team.
The fans who went to Sunderland made all the difference. They were just brilliant and everyone at the club said so.
So give it everything you've got on the day!
