Sessegnon Finds His Shooting Boots

Stephane Sessegnon scored his third pre-season goal for Sunderland at Rugby Park as Sunderland beat Kilmarnock 2-1. Reminders of Campbell's in form pre season last year spring to mind, and as Bruce and the boys are acutely aware injuries are not PERMITTED! Connor Whickam scored his first goal for the club in a bright display by the highly rated youngster. Sunderland fielded a strong side, with Gyan featuring, with the striker being unlucky not to get on the score sheet himself. Westwood was ....

Sunderland Ridicule Gyan Rumours

Sunderland have ridiculed rumours suggesting  Asamoah Gyan is for sale. The Black Cats have a large transfer budget as Ellis Short continues to prove his worth to the club. The sale of Darren Bent and Jordan Henderson have added to those funds. Any suggestion that extra funds are needed is laughable, unless Messi is the player that the budget is going to be blown on (As the club in question isn't Newcastle, these kinds of bluffs don't occur) The summer signing is happy at ....

Henderson Is Sunderlands Loss.

Price seems a little low at £13 mill plus Ngog. I don't value Ngog at £7 million. Henderson is undoubtedly one for the future and Liverpool have done a smart bit of business. At the moment he is best utilised as a winger. His pace, ball control and inch perfect passing has been a joy to watch. YOU NEVER SEE HENDERSON HIDE. He could be used in the middle later, unfortunately at the moment he hasnt "filled out" but that will come, and with it the possibility to dominate a little ....

Newcastle's Ben Afra Wants Controls On Barton

In an amazing outburst unlikely to endear Ben Afra with his Newcastle United colleagues, the French Midfielder has called for tighter controls on footballs violent players. Afra has been out with a double leg break and insists that violent players should be held to account. A point that ex jail-bird Joey Barton would rather not be pressed. After numerous violent on field incidents, not to mention the plethora of off field incidents, Barton is no stranger to pointing fingers. The fact that Ben ....

Sunderlands Pivotal Moment

Everything depends on the England Ghana friendly. More than any other game this season, tonight's is a make or break. Bruce himself will be watching with bated breath. With so many Sunderland players in action (other clubs players have withdrawn) a few injuries could ruin what is left of the season. A friendly for England could turn into a nightmare for Sunderland. A defeat by arch enemies Newcastle is irrelevance  this season as Sunderland coast above them with a superior squad and set ....

Danny Welbeck Is In

Danny Welbeck has been drafted into the England squad. The first call up for the Sunderland striker is just desserts for the young man who has done very well whilst partnering Ghana's Gyan. Welbeck has had a fine season on loan at Sunderland, and Steve Bruce will be loath to see him return to Manchester United at the end of the season. The game is fast becoming a Sunderland affair as the club is represented on both sides of the pitch, But the emphasis is on Ghana where they have Gyan, Mensah ....

Sbragia Quits

Ricky Sbragia has quit as Chief Scout for Sunderland. Ricky famously took over the reigns as manager after Roy Keanes temper tantrum at the club. Ricky is widely regarded as one of the best coaches in the game, something that Sunderland can ill afford to lose at the moment. Undoubtedly he could coach the players to take a throw in that contains more imagination than throwing it up the line regardless of whether a Sunderland player is there. Or plan B a throw that is waist height to a team mate ....

Sunderland V Arsenal

Who would have thought that Sunderland would have so comprehensively outplayed Arsenal in the first half that the Gooners would not have had a meaningful shot on target.   So as it was, Sunderland went into the break after hammering Asrenal 0-1.   The freak goal after Richardson played the ball back to Ferdinand who's attempted clearance up field let Cesc Fabregas score. Although no doubt he knew as much about his goal as he does Quantum Physics, looping high over the keeper and ....

Wenger....enough Is It Now Enough?

His constant petulant outbursts have become tiresome and tedious in the extreme. Is he the new Jose Mourinho of English football? The boy who refuses to grow up. His 5 year old spoilt brat antics at the Stadium Of Light yet again show an urgent need for the F.A. to if not physically gag and thrash the man with a birch, then surely metaphorically do so. Wenger seems to have noticed that Sir ....

N'zogbia Off Target List. Sunderland Crisis?

Sunderland Crisis. what crisis? Looks like any chance of Charles N’Zogbia signing have now gone. Is that bad? although a good winger is he better than what Sunderland have? An attitude that seems a problem, not to mention the "off field" antics. Birmingham have upped their offer and Sunderland have allegedly refused to be drawn into either an auction or paying over their valuation. ....

Boro Looking At Killa

Boro are in talks with Sunderland on a possible season long loan for Kilgallon. The move seems to have dragged on for months but Boro now want to take the defender on loan until the end of the season.   Bruce may want to cash in on the player, but as time drags on it looks increasingly likely that a loan move is in everyone's intrest. A proven player at Championship level, it would give Matt a chance to re-ignite his career with the Championships favourites for promotion.....

Sunderland 2 - 2 Birmingham City So Nearly.

Sunderland bossed Birmingham with a new look team. Bent scoring a penalty after Campbell was brought down, was it a penalty? who knows in the ground it looked it. A sickening memory of the home game last season v Spurs flashed through the mind just before Darren Bent duly banished all thoughts by hitting the back of the net. Sunderland's second came courtesy of Carr, who tried to head back to ....

3 Left In The Lurch And On The Way Out.

Ferdinand looks like he is set for a loan to Italian side Palermo if rumours are to be believed. Its no secret that Kilgallon looks like he is off to 'Boro. This move seems to have been dragging on for months. And McCartney off to Birmingham, which is a bit of an eye-opener. None of the three have been given squad numbers and are surplus to Bruce's requirements. The season starts today and the line up is anyones guess. ....

Welbeck Secured And Hungry

Danny Welbeck is now officially on loan at Sunderland for the Season. At 19 he is one of Manchester United's rising young starlets and his capture has been quite a coup for Steve Bruce and Sunderland. Sunderland were just one of a long line of clubs hoping to secure his services. With bitter rivals Newcastle cursing their fall from grace that they were never realistically in contention ....

Kenwyne Jones, Switching Stripes

Kenwyne Jones looks like he is off to Stoke. The target man has enthralled and frustrated the Sunderland faithful in almost equal measure and seems to be heading out of the door as patience seems to have run out at the club.   A £9million offer seems good business for a player who can be a world beater on his day, but as the fans know those days are becoming ever more infrequent. ....

Bent To Miss The Season Opener

It's alledged that Darren Bent is a big doubt for the opener against Birmingham City with a back problem. Now could this be a bluff to keep him out of the England game? Lets hope so, he wasnt good enough for England when it mattered so why should Sunderland risk him now it doesn't. Fabio, you made your bed! Good luck to Darrens recovery, and hopefully he will be ready for the team that pays ....

Sunderland Raising The Stakes In The N.e.

The summer acquisitions have certainly raised the stakes for Sunderland. No longer content with making up the numbers and avoiding the relegation dogfights, Sunderland's squad certainly look capable of making a real fist of a top half finish this season. Although the "E" word may not be being mentioned with a Wearside accent, it is certainly a distinct possibility. Some areas still need to be ....

Fraizer Campbell

Could this be the season that Fraizer Campbell makes his breakthrough into a Premiership force. At 22 the forward has been in blistering form this pre season and looks surely to be Darren Bents strike partner ahead of Jones. Played on the wing for most of his appearances last season by Steve Bruce, it would appear that he is staking a claim that can't be ignored with some genuinely exciting ....

Cristian Riveros Arriving At Last

Cristian Riveros is expected to have his paperwork sorted and finaised within the next 24 hours. The Paraguay World Cup star has been snapped up by Sunderland on a Bosman free transfer before the big kick off in South Africa. The hold up being his visa, which never seems to go through smoothly when Sunderland are involved.   Riveros has the potential to set the Sunderland team alight if ....

Fulup On His Way

It looks like Marton Fulop will finally sign for Ipswich today. Fulup's stay on Wearside have been uneventful for him. Whenever he was asked to step into the breach, he usually did so as a steady pair of hands but just couldn't make the No.1 spot his own. Fulup made his intention to leave plain to Steve Bruce at the end of last season, being unhappy in the permanent role of understudy. A loan ....

Bruce Winning Fans Over?

Although much that is written about Sunderland is still merely speculation, the heart stopping shudder that greets every Mackem at the thought of Titus Bramble IS cause for concern. Many Mackems never forgave Bruce for selling Danny Collins, we  may not mention it but make no bones about it, it was a huge mistake by Bruce that cost us dear. A season watching McCartney or some make shift ....

Ezequiel Lavazzi In Our Sights?

Ezequiel Lavazzi the highly rated 25 year old Argentinian international plying his trade for Italian outfit Napoli has been linked with Sunderland. Never a prolific forward, but managing around 1 goal in 3 games, he is loved by the Napoili fans. And cost £5million when he signed a 5 year contract holding him until 2015. Meanwhile Marcos Angeleri transfer seems to be causing some concern on Wearside as both the club and manager scratch their heads over the length of time his "Itallian" ....

The Wait Is Over, We're Back.

Pre-Season kicks off tomorrow with the fundraising game against Munster XI. What seems like an almost traditional jaunt over the Irish Sea see’s the lads having an rather gentle opener. A team made up of invitational players will make up the Munster team although out to impress our squad is immeasurably better than the days when Keane saw potential in the local talent. Gordon will not be travelling after his hernia op, and Da Silva, Riveros and Angeleri will not be with the ....

Wigan Vs. Sunderland. An Early Preview And Thoughts.

As i thought early this week, it seems the injury to Bent is not as bad as feared as he is in line to play in tomorrow game at the JJB (DW or whatever). I am not certain that this was a case of simple mind games as I accused Brucey of, but I am not surprised to hear he seems alive fit and well, despite his running out of petrol the other night! Ouch! As also mentioned a couple of days ago we ....

Surely Sunderland And Newcastle Will Get A World Cup Calling?

Looking through the list of potential venues today I have to say I was a little worried by the thinking of our FA. I mean clearly both North East clubs have the stadia size and class to host World cup games, but with that the FA also want to spread it all over the country of course. But MK Dons, Plymouth? I thought you had to have at least 40,000 seating ability which would count out those two ....
