One of the most encouraging things about the live podcast last week was seeing many journo and editor types in the audience, writes Stephen Goldsmith. This was particularly pleasing as it meant I could remind them face to face about their assurances of featuring on the podcast.
James Hunter from the Evening Chronicle was one the recipients of this direct method and popped in to the studios to discuss all things SAFC. Being the Sunderland correspondent in a Newcastle paper, it was a change in environment for James, here he could witness Sunderland fans moaning instead of Newcastle fans goading over airports or housing estates that aren’t even in the same county. Gareth Barker and I were also joined by Craig Clark from over at Roker Report who sparked off a massive Phil Bardsley debate at the live pod last week. If he hadn’t have asked somebody else would have in all fairness.
Collectively, we discussed:
- What’s gone wrong with Ji Dong Won?
- Has something gone right with Connor Wickham?
- Will the man “with the keys” ever arrive?
- All things Crystal Palace with Jim Daly from the Five Year Plan podcast and fanzine.
- Whether or not the final 15 minutes on Tuesday was the start of something new or simply down to superior fitness levels.
