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...
There is a brilliant treat available for any SAFC fan with the stomach to relive the last few decades later this year…
Newcastle fans killed onboard flight MH17 unites the Northeast in the most humbling way possible.
If you haven’t heard, Alfie is a hero!
SAFC have received two massive boosts with the season’s end just a few days old as three confirm their intentions to remain on Wearside next season
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!
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. Relegation this season would rank as a big disappointment, however our run to the League Cup final, although ultimately unsuccessful, was memorable in so many ways.
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.
Here are a couple of other guides for SAFC fans heading to Wembley depending on how you get there. This time we cover driving down, getting the coach and the train from Wearside. If you’re going down on Saturday you should be reading Part 1.
The campaign is flying high and currently ‘Things Can Only Get Better’ sits in the top 40 on iTunes and top 20 on Amazon (correct at the time of publishing). D:Ream, the band behind the former UK number one, have caught wind of this and DJ/Producer/Vocalist Alan Mackenzie kindly took the time to answer a few questions for We Are Wearside.
