If Sunderland AFC is telling the truth, Maja told Jack Ross yesterday he wanted to stay and would today sign a generous new contract (did someone say at seven times his current salary, precisely as demanded by […]

Keith Charlton RIP: ‘in heaven getting Stokoe and Porterfield’s autographs’

Charlie Wyke courtesy of www.safc.com

This absolutely must be posted. Salut! Sunderland’s gut reaction to Max Power’s sending off at Walsall was along the lines of “what an idiot”.

Ha’way this Lad: Eric Keeler runs from sea to shining sea for Spinal Research
