Di Canio Sacked

By GMac88 Friday, 10 January 2014 08:19 PM

Paolo Di Canio is sacked. The preverbial roller coaster ride has abruptly halted as the Sunderland hierarchy feel there is something amiss with its direction. How much of this is down to results and how much of this is down to Di Canio’s relationship with the players will likely be revealed in the coming days – you can’t imagine him keeping schtum like Martin O’Neill.

Calumniation Of Cabral

By John_C Friday, 10 January 2014 08:18 PM

I have been told to stop questioning the appointment of Paolo Di Canio and that whatever he says should not be criticised. Instead I should back him and help him, but I am unsure what that means. Does it imply just have blind faith and act merely as his apologist? Then and only when the time comes that he may be sacked - am I allowed to be a sheep and mouth him off?

Gus is Fed Up - but is a Clear Out the Answer?

By RichardBurn Thursday, 09 January 2014 11:48 AM

Gus Poyet seems to have learnt something about the Sunderland team since arriving on Wearside. They aren't really that good. And, despite having come from a lower league club, the Uruguayan is seemingly losing patience with the squad. With the transfer window open and survival looking a formidable feat, in recent press conferences the Head Coach stated a desire to make some changes in a squad starting to wear him out. However, after the unfruitful fortunes of a destroy and rebuild strategy last summer, the extent of January's dealings must be monitored.

Player Ratings: Sunderland 2-1 Manchester United

By GMac88 Wednesday, 08 January 2014 01:30 PM

A complete team performance you could say, most were great, none were poor. Put it this way, if we play like we did for the rest of the season we will win most of our games no doubt. But, we’re Sunderland, that will never happen – let’s enjoy this while we can!

Prediction & Preview: Sunderland Vs Manchester United

By GMac88 Tuesday, 07 January 2014 11:16 AM

As the FA Cup sideshow reaches a pretty pleasant interlude - the main event (part 1) is finally here! Yes ladies and gents, today we have the opportunity to set a tentative foot into the final of the Capital One cup. It would be our first final since 1992. Surely we're all clamming for this!

Fancy Another Cup Run? Sunderland Vs Carlisle: Preview & Prediction

By GMac88 Sunday, 05 January 2014 11:13 AM

Going into our home FA Cup tie against Carlisle United, you could forgive everyone associated with Sunderland if they all had an eye on Tuesday's Capital One cup semi-final. However, the way this season's FA Cup has begun, there's a real possibility we could find ourselves on two cup runs this season.

Should Sunderland Sell Fletcher?

By GMac88 Saturday, 04 January 2014 10:56 AM

It always irks me when managers start flapping their gums about signing players from other teams. Neil Lennon doing just that about Steven Fletcher, even going to the extent of throwing out some valuations. Ironically, he goes on to say it is purely speculation and that there has been no contact between the clubs. Anyway, so here we are talking once more about strikers – but would cashing in on Fletcher be a wise decision?

Sunderland 0-1 Aston Villa: Player Ratings

By GMac88 Thursday, 02 January 2014 01:06 PM

What start to 2014. Really loved spending copious coin on a taxi in the torrid weather conditions to watch it, I don’t know about you. So who's fault was it? Not Jozy's or Ji's...

Sunderland 0-1 Aston Villa: Match Reaction & Analysis

By GMac88 Thursday, 02 January 2014 10:23 AM

It's just excruciating, isn't it? The stage couldn't have been set more perfectly for a Phoenix-like rise from the Premier League dungeon. Four league games unbeaten, facing an Aston Villa side in truly awful form, on New Year's Day, at home - it was destined to go wrong, wasn't it? We've done this whole Sunderland supporting thing too long to think any different.

Cardiff Point Means More than Everton Three

By OrdinaryJon Tuesday, 31 December 2013 02:23 PM

I was out celebrating my step-son’s birthday as the lads were (eventually) battling their way to a point on our very first visit to the Cardiff City Stadium. Checking my Twitter feed for updates I decided it was a lost cause at 2-0 down after around 75mins. A final check getting in the car home brought the surprising news that somehow we had managed to haul ourselves level for a vital point. Very un-Sunderland like this; first passing, now comebacks? What on earth is going on Gus?
