Sunderland to release DVD of ‘Bristanbul’ comeback

By Liam Thompson

Sunderland AFC came back from 3-0 to draw 3-3 away at Bristol City on Saturday, despite only scoring one goal themselves.

The match which will no doubt be relived numerous times as the tale is passed from father to son through generations, with the help of a celebratory DVD!

Fans are already celebrating this as the greatest comeback since Jesus Christ himself rose from the grave, with a similar miracle required to save Sunderland’s season.

The performance was reminiscent of the famous Liverpool comeback of 2005, leading Sunderland fans to christen it ‘Bristanbul’.

The DVD will presumably be a remake of Liverpool’s celebratory film, with Paulo Maldini recast as Aden Flint and Steven Gerrard being replaced by Aiden McGeady.

Each DVD will be 20 minutes long in order to show the entire comeback and will double up as Sunderland’s ‘Best Bits of 2017/18’ DVD to be released this summer. A free season ticket will be included with each copy.
