Not bad. But somewhat dwarfed by the numbers following his Sunderland side to Wembley tomorrow. Nearly 40,000 will help make up a sell-out crowd of more than 80,000 for the clash with Portsmouth, a record for the competition. It is guaranteed to exceed the attendance at Celtic Park for the Old Firm fixture and the one at Anfield, where Liverpool host Spurs.
As an experience, it is also sure to beat the grisly spectacle in Paisley this afternoon, where Jack’s old side host Dundee in a nerve-ridden relegation six-pointer.
