The Big Preview - Winger unavailable as Sunderland look to take advantage of aerial frailties & Jimi's Prediction

by James_Hall Saturday, 20 March 2021 10:29 AM

Sunderland welcome Lincoln to the Stadium of Light this weekend for a top of the table clash. A win would see the Black Cats go 5 points clear of our promotion rivals in the league table. Will Lee Johnson’s men manage to keep the pressure on the top 2 and solidify our 3rd place standing? Let’s have a look…

"Best game so far" "Rolled his sleeves up" - Reaction to Accrington Player Ratings & Comments

by Connor Quigley Friday, 19 March 2021 09:01 AM

After Wembley disappointment in 2019, we went to Accrington to concentrate on promotion from the league and after Wembley glory in 2021, we went to Accrington to concentrate on promotion from the league. Let’s just hope I don’t have to repeat the same sentence in two years’ time (unless Accrington have somehow found their way to the Championship)

I woke up on Tuesday with an unfamiliar feeling of nervousness in my gut, a feeling that I hadn’t felt for a while but a feeling, nevertheless, I’d missed in a lot of ways. There was a sense of hope and expectation about this game that we had yet to feel since our relegation in to League One. Could we go to a promotion rival and put on a performance to show that we meant business, a broadcast if you will, in front of the Sky cameras to show that Sunderland AFC were on their way back?

Player Ratings & Comments: Unstoppable Sunderland win convincingly again

Just a couple of months ago the playoffs felt like the ceiling for Sunderland. An injection of consistency into our form has meant that is now the floor with the Lads just two points from automatic promotion. Yesterday's victory at Fratton Park, for the first time this millennium, was a continuation of that form.

"Unsung hero?" "Still not good enough" - Reaction to Rochdale Player Ratings & Comments

by Connor Quigley Sunday, 07 March 2021 05:52 PM

Rochdale came to the Stadium of Light without scoring a goal in their past 5 games, their management and fanbase talking about how unlucky they have been in recent results despite good performances and as well as that, they sat at the bottom of the table. In the recipe of all things typically Sunderland, that often means that this Rochdale team would rock up and take the 3 points yesterday.

Another win and, more astonishingly, another clean sheet. That's four wins in five games with a clean sheet featuring in all of those victories. Championship, anyone?
