Re: Next seasons kit choice?

There will be a new kit, a small number of supporters were at the club a week or so ago doing some stuff for the launch. It should be released in the days leading up to the Palace game.

Re: Club 1871

Not keen on it being called South Bank. Us oldies who stood on the South Bank moved to Y25/26 and that is where the spirit of the South Bank is. However, I love the idea and fancy a change so I'm open to moving my ST next season. When will the club make the decision if the 2000 home fans in the Sou...

Re: South Stand Singers For Sunderland (H)

Ok, outing myself here. I'm one of the protagonists of this group. Far from the main one, but one of the original half dozen or so who discussed the idea. And I'm in there on Saturday, hopefully with around 150 others. You won't see me in any of the PNE photos because I wasn't there despite wanting ...

Re: Opposition fans back from the game

I fancy Fulham to do them in the playoff final. And I'll enjoy it happening when it does. oxf*rd Villa Woooah!! Anyone but Fulham to be promoted please. I'm completely indifferent to Fulham. They play some good stuff though and have been there or there abouts for a few years now. Villa think they'r...

Re: Arriving to games late

Arrived late to a few games over the years but the one that really sticks out was Villa away in 2006. Stuck in horrendous traffic all the way to Birmingham, missed Doyle's opener early into the game and arrived just as Sonko got harshly sent off and Angel scored the penalty. Barry scored in the sec...

Re: Leaving Games Early...?

Have left games early on occasion before but only "regretted" it once - Oldham at home Sep 99. I missed John Polston's 95th minute equaliser.

Re: Arriving to games late

A few times arrived late but not all that often. Usually when I do arrive something considerable happens not long after I arrive. Recall getting to the Valley in around 3.05pm in Sep 96 just in time to see Carl Leaburn be slipped in to smash past Mihailov for the only goal of the game. A couple of y...

Re: Stam Gone

On a footballing level I'd be all for McDermott returning again Dickie, but sadly with half the support at best sceptical the last time around and the tarnishing his reputation took thanks to the inept half-hearted efforts of disinterested lightweights such as Piazon and Vydra I fear it'd be even wo...

Re: Would you...

I'd accept him as manager although I wouldn't be best pleased with the decision. It would basically mean we've just added another two years of wasted effort on trying to build something with foundations. Regardless of what you say about Stam, the one thing he has done is introduced foundations to pr...

This is why we will survive, the teams below us are terrible and cant see 4 of them going past us If onlycircumstances were so easy to dismiss.

Re: The fans alternative course of action.

What Stam says about the fans from now on is irrelevant as far as I'm concerned. He's entitled to his opinion of course, but no matter how well he means the things he says, he no longer has the support of the majority which is all but a position of dead man walking. But regardless of Stam and the w...

Re: VAR

The penalty took time because it was a hard call to make. What didn't help this at all was Pawson ambling off to the side while in debate with the Liverpool players, reviewing and then ambling back on in debate with the WBA players. It should be made unequivocal that if a referee is in discussion w...

Re: BFTG - Cardiff

While it is the Players who are ultimately responsible for last nights fiasco;Stam made a critical error last night in not making a substuition at least 15 minutes before their 1st goal. Instead of which he just sat on his hands. While I felt absolutely gutted walking back to the car-it was an exci...

In order to obtain the discounted fare, Network Railcard holders will need to buy minimum two sets of tickets from their starting point to Manningtree (easterly edge of the NWRC zone) and then from Manningtree to Ipswich. You'll save yourself about £20 on an off-peak day return that way. But then, i...
