See another terrific Who are You? by clicking this image

Tom Jolliffe* cannot see beyond an away win at the Stadium of Light tomorrow. At least he applies a neat sense of humour, and traces of sympathy, to his asnwers about our plight and his club Aston Villa’s buoyant current state and longer-term prospects (which should not, in his view, include much room for Lewis […]

Sunderland Out West: Muppet Show where fans were the real stars

sacramento vs safc

Malcolm Dawson writes….we’ve already had some belting stuff from our friends in SAFC NASA. What follows is no exception. Jesse Burch may not have seen our boys as often as the rest of us but he shares our passion, shares our pain and has, through some long distance form of osmosis, absorbed the DNA of […]

Chance encounter with Wayne Entwistle as SuperKev destroyed Bury, sealing promotion

Jake: 'why not, with so many players with SAFC connections in Russia?'

James Bentley is the author of an imminent book about one of the best seasons in the history of Bury, albeit one overshadowed, as he now explains, by grim events in British football.

Birflatt Boy: end the Mignolet love-in. He’s Liverpool’s now, our history
