The Lars word: Sunderland’s a Yo-yo team

Lars Knutsen - Wearside through and through

A defender and a midfielder up for the fight – yes, and the Scousers I’ve spoken to rate Ejaria. So will we stay up? […]

Mark Sunderland’s Transfer Window out of 10 Opinions are like, well, anything we all have. Mine is no more valuable than the next Sunderland supporter’s.

Transfer news: there isn’t much, but should we really worry?

Jake the rebel
