The good vibes couldn’t last forever could they?
Sunderland's three game winning streak came to an end at Alexandra Stadium after a dreadful first half.
Ex-Sunderland boss Dick Advocaat is set to star in a Till I Die-style documentary to air on Disney+. The veteran coach has been manager of Feyenoord since the autumn of 2019.
That right there is the type of performance we want to see from Sunderland in League One; Composed, professional and without much to really write and complain about. Another win and another bogey team struck off of the list as Simon Grayson’s Fleetwood succumbed to defeat at the Stadium of Light.
I think you can call last night as comprehensive 2-0 win as they come. Our Player Ratings & Comments feature is back, have your say by getting involved!
After a fantastic performance against Doncaster, a ticket to Wembley booked midweek and a takeover announced, well, you wouldn’t be a Sunderland fan if you didn’t think it’d culminate with a loss to Burton Albion because a good week doesn’t exist around these parts, does it?
Three points again as Sunderland solidify their play-off position, surely with one eye on the top two who sit just eight and nine points ahead.
Yeah, we're a day late. Things got of hand. I'm not normally a Kronenburg fan, but we had many cans of it. It is an expression of who we are. It's Saturday night after the Stadium of Light. It is being lost in drink, a soft hiss of depressurisation. It is relief and jubilation. It's toasting our friends, family, heroes, club. It is the end of something - a party 2 years in the making.
Tonight's win may be for a minor trophy, but it is yet another example of the transformation happening at the Stadium of Light and it's brilliant.
You ever start eating a bar of chocolate, eat one piece and give the rest away? Very likely not and for once Sunderland decided not to go one goal up and gift their opponents the rest of the fun (and it was bloody brilliant).
