Click Jake's image to see all Who are You? instalments so far this season

One of the many joys of the various seasons’ editions of ‘Who are You?’ has been the way it has unearthed sparkling anecdotes, unexpected encounters between supporters, or supporters and players and/or officials and fascinating details of people’s lives.

Who are You?: when Byrne broke Chelsea hearts and Perez defied five Sutton one-on-ones

And now, the end really is near ...

Last game of the season means last of the 2016-2017 ‘Who are You?’ interviews.

Bournemouth Who are You?: ‘how have Sunderland lasted so long?’

NB: this appears slightly out of sequence ahead of Pete Sixsmith’s report from the Riverside, where the poor man witnessed yet another winless, goalless night for Sunderland.

The Middlesbrough ‘Who are You?’: on Juninho, Lauren Laverne and two doomed clubs

Catherine Wilson

So Sunderland are effectively two defeats from relegation, one if Hull were to win just one more game and goal differences remained much as now. Middlesbrough are not much better off.
