Re: Strikers.

I'd be ok with Baldock coming in tbh. Experienced striker, always been pretty good when I've seen him Agreed. Can't see us getting better without gambling on someone unproven.

Re: RUMOUR- John O’shea set to sign for Reading

If this is the level of ambition we are showing then it really won't be long before we're in League One You are aware the transfer window doesn't shut for two months, right?

Re: RUMOUR- John O’shea set to sign for Reading

Easily one of the worst performers in the league last year - a great deal of the goals Sunderland conceded last year were from set pieces where the whole back four were just static. O'Shea was marshaling that. He can't come here. If this is the level of ambition we are showing then it really won't b...

I know a few Derby fans and that doesn't describe them at all. They're just sick of big money being invested poorly. I know a few very nice Derby fans ... but I based it on my reading of their fans forum. And these guys are even more miserable than we are. They're all tossers. I'll never forget the...

Re: Alternative to STAR?

Having said that, there doesn't need to be a permanent or fixed association as there is nothing to stop a group of fans with an idea getting together and implementing it - I think the group who occupied the away end to cheer on the team did so off their own backs/contacted the club (apologies for o...

Just saying, people are quick to sneer and mock, just give the man a chance. St Mirren domin8ed the Scottish Championship last year.

Ye maybe.

I hope he is a catastrophic failure.
