Yes he's a boyhood Newcastle fan Graham, and he was given a hostile reception by a minority of supporters just two days before joining Sunderland, but all the lad wants is the chance to show what he can do.
But the boos didn’t prevent the 27-year-old completing a £5m deadline day switch to Wearside and - if anything - I'm sure it will spur him on even harder on Saturday.
Danny Graham: “The reception was great at Reading.
“Obviously the one on Tuesday night was expected for myself.
“That’s part and parcel of football, I just got on with it.
“But it never once put me off in terms of wanting to move here.
“The contrast with the reception I got at the Madejski Stadium was brilliant.
“I’d signed and everything was done and to get that reception was really pleasing.
“I’m just looking forward to having a successful end of the season.”
