VIDEO: Drunk Sunderland fan hilariously interrupts interview on local news

A drunk Sunderland supporter has gone viral after he hilariously interrupted an interview on the local news prior to his side’s match last night.

The Black Cats were set to take on Bristol Rovers at the Memorial Stadium, but before kick off, one fan who looked quite out of it tried to make himself known by making an interview between one match attendee and BBC Look North’s Jeff Brown rather difficult.

The interviewee was discussing about winning the Checkatrade Trophy and getting promotion from League One with the drunk fan – who on numerous occasions had mates trying to whisk him away – before then putting his arms on Jeff who was trying to end the chat and take it back to the presenter in the studio.

Watch the amusing moment for yourself in the video below…

The footage, which was posted on both Twitter and Facebook had in total nearly 30,000 views along with over a hundred comments, some of those can be seen on the next page.


To the match now and the game ended with Sunderland setting up a tie with Portsmouth in the Final at Wembley, beating Bristol Rovers 2-0.

The first goal wasn’t scoreline until the 42nd minute when Will Grigg fired home past keeper Jack Bonham inside the area.

Two minutes into the second half, the Black Cats found their second through Lewis Morgan – who got his first goal for the club – to producing jubilant scenes from the 1,800 travelling fans with some urged to break out of the stand beside the players celebrating.
