It is human nature to romanticise the past. And the romantic feelings I have towards May 26th 2018 and Slavisa Jokanovic are bordering on inappropriate. But I've glossed over that cold December night when that Fulham team gave Sunderland their first home win in 364 days. I've repressed the memories of losing 8-2 to Chelsea pre-season. 'It means nothing,' I told myself, very unconvincingly. No, that season is all Mitro on fire and Denis sitting on the crossbar at Wembley.
