Sunderland 4 Hull City 2: Campbell souped up

The first time I looked, Sunderland were winning 4-1 against Hull City in Portugal and Campbell, Fraizer not Sol, had scored all four of our goals in the first 34 minutes. The next time I looked it was 4-2 and not far from the final whistle. And my third glance showed that to be the […]

Those Man City, Hull and Wolves victories: coincidence or conspiracy?

Hull City v Sunderland: pain and pleasure Observed
