Sunderland fans reminisce about Kevin Ball on his birthday

Sunderland have been reminiscing on Twitter about former player Kevin Ball on his birthday, and it has caused some fans to do likewise.

The midfield enforcer was a big favourite back in his day and it is not surprising to see people look back on his playing days with fond memories, given he made 388 appearances for the club, scoring 25 goals.

Most are remembering his header against Chelsea as a video of the goal has been posted online by the club, but one fan has used the opportunity to have a dig at the current team, who fall short of his standards.

Despite that, most are pleased to see what was a memorable goal replayed, and the chance to think of better times is probably a useful distraction.

Ball twice won the Sunderland Player of the Year in his nine-year stint in the north-east, and the current team could do with a tough-tackling player like him.
