Sunderland come into this game against Tottenham on the back of a disappointing 1-0 defeat at home to Liverpool. Opponents Spurs beat Burnley midweek in the FA Cup, coming from 2-0 down to win 4-2. Spurs are currently a great run of form having lost just once in their last 10 domestic games – a 2-1 defeat against Pardew’s Palace which is their most recent league game.

Sunderland Stats: How Does Poyet's 50 Compare With Other SAFC Managers?

by GMac88 Monday, 05 January 2015 06:25 PM

Gus Poyet recently reached 50 league games in charge of Sunderland. He took over in October 2013 with the club on just 1 point from the first 8 games of the season. Poyet then steadied the ship and pulled of the Great Escape to keep SAFC in the Premier League. His second season at the club has started solid but unspectacular. How does Poyet’s first 50 league games in charge compare to Sunderland’s previous managers in the Premier League?

Red & Blue - Three Former SAFC & Everton Players

by MFBriggs Saturday, 12 April 2014 11:57 AM

Well here we are again, seems like it’s been a while since we played on a weekend and who better than to face one of our former bogey teams, Everton.

This weekend it’s only three for you, only three really stood out to me if I’m perfectly honest with you, so, without further or do, here’s your former three players!
