Sutton United have reached the 5th Round of the FA Cup for the first time. On Monday night they play Arsenal in the biggest game in the club’s history.
However for many fans the occasion has been tainted by controversy, most notably for the decision to change their shirt sponsor for the game to Sun Bets.
Dan from the Sutton United blog Gandermonium has written about the subject this week. He kindly joined us to talk about how fans have reacted to
the decision and his own personal turmoil as a proud fan and volunteer at the club.

That rag that continues to tarnish football.
I liked listening to that lad and it’s sad that their whole cup tie has a cloud over it. And for what??!! A few measly quid. Great shame.
Well done to the Sutton guy for fronting up. It would have been so easy to defend the club’s position but he’s an ordinary bloke giving a good account of his club doing the wrong thing on his club’s biggest game in 30 years.
The ‘Indecent Proposal’ analogy sums it up. For all of us the question as to be, at what cost?. I feel for the Dan from Sutton Utd, but we must all stand together. It was Liverpool and the people of that city, that got vilified by a corporation with political motives. It still goes on today and it could be you or me next time that are targeted and who will defend us then. Never Forget, Never Forgotten, Justice for the96.
