West Ham Who are You?: Payet, Big Sam and Defoe as benchwarmer

Who Are You (featured image)

Only seven to go before ‘Who are You?’ researchers have to start turning their attentions to fans of Burton, Barnsley and Brentford. Pete May* is our West Ham guest, a highly respected author of books about the Hammers but also Sunday league football, the ‘joys of Essex’ and Dr Who. He senses Jermain may be […]

The Manchester United Who are You?: ‘keep Moyes, he’ll bring you back up’

Who Are You (featured image)

Colin Randall writes: I’ve seen us beat Manchester United at home, at least – but probably only – once, unless I’ve forgotten another one, at Roker Park and once (League Cup) at the Stadium of Light. Others will have seen more, plus those crucial away wins and the League semi-finals home and away. I cannot […]

Leicester Who are You? defending Sri, acclaiming Defoe, missing Kante a little

Who Are You (featured image)

  Monsieur Salut writes: it goes from bad to worse to boorish. Not content with his share of the blame for leading Sunderland’s downward charge to the Championship, our boss is caught – thinking he is off-air – snapping at a BBC reporter, Vicki Sparks, and threatening to give her ‘a slap even though you’re […]

Watford Who are You?: fondly remembering SuperKev, Rostron and Colin West’s hairdo

Who Are You (featured image)

Colin Randall writes: not everyone will share this thought but I needed cheering up on Wednesday. Getting back to sunshine in Marseille helped (as did the cost of the trip, return flight from Stansted at four euros each, the outward journey having been only 14). Then I saw our Watford interviewee Del Day‘s Facebook update: […]

SAFC vs Burnley ‘Who are You?’: Dyche, Barton, Bob Lord and us

Who Are You (featured image)

Colin Randall wites: What a fabulous set of answers, from a proper supporter of a proper football club, brought to us by Pete Sixsmith, who met him on holiday in Italy and tried to lead him astray (ie by persuading him along to some some Under 23s reserve game Sixer had spotted in the local […]

Manchester City ‘Who are You?’: Roker Park veteran says our time’s up

Who Are You (featured image)

Where would Sunderland fit into a spoof list of films that have won or been nominated for Oscars? Some fun has been had on this very subject by the people at enhancedbets.com: Leicester’s Gone With the Wins (sadly for us, a sequence than came to a halt earlier this week) and poor Bob Bradley remembered […]

Everton Who are You?: ‘SAFC have all our injury-prone old players!’

Who Are You (featured image)

Graeme Holmes* is an Everton season ticket holder whose globetrotting, groundhopping activities make our own Pete Sixsmith seem like an armchair supporter. He’s at a match as a neutral most nights to add to those huge number of Everton games he’s seen over the past 38 years. He has obviously come across Sixer on his […]

Southampton Who are you? “No team in the land can boast such a conveyor belt of talent”

Who Are You (featured image)

Are we meeting Southampton at the right part of the season? Are they  far enough up the league to be relaxed and not inclined to fight as hard as some more desperate clubs might? Will they be distracted by Wembley and not focused on their immediate game? Somehow, I don’t think so. They’re a well-run, professional […]

Crystal Palace who are you? “Big Sam was the man to take over”

Who Are You (featured image)

John McCormick writes: I don’t often visit other fans’ websites. But in setting up this edition of “Who are you?”, which Colin organised before his departure, I visited The EaglesBeak and I have to say I was impressed. It’s everything a fan site should be, so it’s no surprise that we have another good set of […]

Tottenham Hotspur Who are You?: how Sunderland loan made Danny Rose great

Jake updates his brilliant image for last season's game: are Charlie Fleming and Danny Blanchflower eligible for Tuesday night?

Colin Randall writes: No strategy, no continuity. That’s the damning verdict of our Spurs ‘Who are You?’ interviewee Chris Miller*, blogger, podcaster and tweeter on all things THFC. He thinks we’re doomed but also believes David Moyes could achieve something at Sunderland. And he recalls Teemu Tainio as a ‘cult hero’ at Spurs. Best of […]
