Podcast! That was all right. In the end.

So that’s that. The end of a stupid season came to a disappointing close on Sunday, but I can’t say I was too devastated. I was worried about losing before because it meant something. Against Swansea I think there was a collective adrenaline hang over from the past four weeks or so. Not only on [...]

Wise Men Say Podcast: Super Sunderland, West Brom & Swansea discussed

It feels a bit surreal talking about being safe with a game still to spare, writes Stephen Goldsmith. You always assume these things will be decided on a last gap win somewhere, or someone else being more rubbish than you, basically. So what on earth has happened here then? We asked Tom Lynn, editor of [...]

Podcast! Momentum key to survival, and we’ve got it…

With three games remaining, we’re out of the relegation zone with a superior goal difference and a game in hand. On top of that, two of those three games are at home. Even more worryingly, Sunderland are coming dangerously close to making me enjoy watching football again. They often toy with us, but now they’ve [...]

Podcast! Anything but hope…

You just don’t know whether to laugh or cry when it comes to Sunderland. At the final whistle on Saturday a full dose of the dreaded hope returned. If we had our game in hand today and won it, then we’d be out of the bottom three. I can’t even fathom how this is possible. [...]

Salut! Sunderland Podcast: We Talk Man City And Chelsea.

Well despite only picking up a point from our last two games, the performances were encouraging, writes Stephen Goldsmith. I doubt any of us are quite believing that the great escape is on just yet, but it does give us a little scope to be positive on this week’s podcast. Hooray! It was a bit [...]

Podcast! Just more moaning on, really…

It’s getting difficult to know what to talk about now. Sometimes the podcast can be a bit more sprightly when we’ve lost. There’s less to moan about when we win. There’s a reason the football phone ins are always busier when teams are losing. Nobody wants to ring up and say how good things are, [...]

Podcast! Never give up hope…

Dear oh dear. We’re back again with another soul destroying, depressing edition of the only independent Sunderland podcast and it doesn’t make for pleasant listening. Another must win game arrives on Monday, unfortunately it’s against a team who are far superior to the West Ham United side that beat us on Monday gone. Sunderland need [...]

Salut Podcast: Epsiode 31 – Put Vergini In A Bottle

Who’s feeling confident then? The game at Anfield was one I actually feared beforehand. It’s been a while since I’ve actually feared that the opposition were so far ahead of us that the scoreline was destined to be ridiculously high one, writes Stephen Goldsmith. Then, around mid afternoon, rumours filtered through that Gus was planning [...]

Podcast! Must Win?

As I’ve stated repeatedly, I’m not really one for the must win game theory. Sure, they do exist. If you need to win on the last game of the season to stay up, a scenario all too familiar to us, then that certainly falls into the category. This Norwich game really is important though. We’ll [...]

Podcast! Back to the league, gulp…

Well, we’re getting into severe cliché territory. Every game is a cup final and all that. With the fixtures we have remaining, you look at half of them as winnable and half of them as, well, not. But we’re all too familiar with Sunderland doing that thing where they turn winnable games into dour disasters. [...]
