I have to say I’m a bit surprised by the poll results to date. ‘Boro being top is reasonable. They have proved they are capable of handling the Championship, have money coming and have a decent manager. Sunderland in the top six is understandable. It’s a Sunderland site, and no matter how jaundiced the fans […]

Hutch’s one-word ratings: Ndong stands out in win at QPR

Rob Hutchison enjoys a winning Sunderland game and a hugely encouraging star role for Didier (or Ibrahim – take your pick) Ndong. ‘Songs I never thought I’d hear,’ says Rob. ‘Paddy McNair, he scores when he wants.’ Up and running. Made to work for it mind. Moyes does have a plan after all… (more…)

QPR v Sunderland: Guess the score

Jake says: 'have a go':

John McCormick writes: Rodney Marsh had moved from QPR by the time I went to live in London but they were still a club to admire. Panache, perhaps, would be the word that best fitted them as they came close, oh, so close, to winning the League, and how we neutrals wanted them to. (more…)
