A bit from the local BBC featuring Carl Boyeson's cup final appointment tomorrow.  Clearly disappointing for his family to miss out on his big day.

I know we are in the middle of a pandemic but this is a one off for the officials and surely in a stadium the size of Wembley they could have made some exceptions. Families could have sat in their bubbles in splendid isolation from everyone else. The upset shown by Carl’s wife says it all.
I bet enough Wembley workers, back room staff, hangers on will find the chance to be there when their presence is not essential

Will Mike Dean be at Wembley to see his fellow card shark and beloved Tranmere in action I wonder? Depite the ban on fans attending, I wouldn't put it past him to be there in some capacity.

 Well strangely enough Mike Dean has a VAR appointment on Saturday afternoon and a Fourth Official on Monday.

 With Sunderland AFC raising £150,000 on" virtual" ticket sales for our game to be distributed to local charities it shows the appetite for this game by ourselves and to be honest there will be a lot of very annoyed people if Mr Dean turns up in an unofficial capacity and 45000 Sunderland supporters are denied the safe opportunity.

Probably closed his date, and made himself unavailable so he can watch it on TV

Perhaps he has landed the gig to sing the National Anthem.
