Calling All You Football Experts - We Need Your Help!

by GMac88 Monday, 08 September 2014 08:16 PM

Okay so we downloaded William Hill's 433 app to join their charity Blogger League and represent SAFC - the winner of which gets a whopping £4,333 for their charity of choice. One week in and being honest we are completely useless. Rock bottom of the fifteen entrants. So, rather than risking Howard-Wilkinson-embarrassment we're aiming for a Gus-Poyet-miracle, but this isn't going to happen on our own so we need your help...

I’ve had a canny time writing about SAFC – but this was the most enjoyable few hours of the lot! Here are my top ten Super Kevin Phillips goals. Obviously, I’ve had to miss out a fair few corkers given I could only include 10 of his 130 glorious goals in red and white. Complete with videos for 8 of them!


How Much do SAFC Fans Genuinely Know about the Club?

by GMac88 Wednesday, 09 April 2014 01:18 PM

As the typical Sunderland fan will probably know, we’ve gone through a fair few peaks and troughs. One of our dizziest highs was winning the FA Cup back in 1973, while we have spent some unwanted time in the third tier.

There has been a remarkable amount of agenda fuelled media attention relating to the Ji Dong-Won fiasco. Yet more embarrassment shovelled over a desperately depressing climax to the season. Whilst we’re clutching at proverbial straws to find specks of hope in situations that should make little difference – I can’t help but suggest this might work in our favour.
