Borini Bundled In

We lost out on a few Plan A’s in the transfer window and Plan B seems to be a directionless flap scouring the loan market for the proverbial ‘stop-gap’ resolution. The old ‘the roof is leaking so stick a bucket under it’ approach. This seems to have been the defining solution for major squad shortfalls in our transfer tactics for a little while now, including this revolution…ish…summer. [More]

Away Day Diaries: Crystal Palace

There are not many days where waking up at 4 o’clock is a good thing, however this time I had Crystal Palace away to look forward too. You have to start with the standard away day breakfast - bacon sarnie and the first tin of the day! Is it slightly worrying that this was at 4:30am?

The excessive referencing to his stellar England under-21s scoring record must now be cast aside. It’s time to expect more. In this crucial, exciting yet unpredictable season for Sunderland AFC...

Preview: Crystal Palace Vs Sunderland

Three games, that’s all – three games and I am already scratching my head wondering what on earth is going on. Nothing makes any sense to me at the moment and quite frankly I am starting to get a little bit scared. Can you get more contrasting performances? What on earth was happening on Tuesday? My mind hurts. Anyway, here we come again London. [More]
