We will wait until tomorrow to write about anything that has happened on the deadline day transfer front.
Who knows whether there can be yet further twists before the witching hour is reached?
But that pause for reflection should not get in the way of bidding farewell to Andy Reid who, but for injury, would surely have made a much bigger impact at Sunderland.
I remain a fan, remember clearly how his long layoff began at a time when he was arguably our best player and feel deeply unhappy that it didn’t work out a great deal better for him and for us.
Andy carries the best wishes of Salut! Sunderland as he climbs aboard the charabanc bound for Blackpool, where we hope he enjoys the Lights, keeps his guitars under lock and key, avoids the fast food, candy floss and rock (given his tendency to pile on weight) and plays out a great second of the season with the Tangerines.
