Jake: ‘the League Cup – an opportunity or a nuisance?’

Salut! Sunderland maintains its idle hands new approach to the traditional Who are You? exercise ahead of Tuesday night’s visit to Accrington Stanley in the Carabao Cup (League Cup still sounds better).

Accordingly, rather than go out a search for a winning interviewee, a task that proved desperately hard last season, a shortened version of the questions we have previously asked appears below and we invite Stanley fans to respond to any or all of them in the Comments below.

This method worked excellently for yesterday’s league game at Ipswich, as acknowledged by our deputy editor Malcolm Dawson, but less well for the opener against Oxford United. Stanley’s small fan base makes a bumper response to this post unlikely but we’d love to be proved wrong. It’s your chance to have your say about your club; it means as much to you as ours does to us …

Question 1: Lincoln are fancied by some to do well in League One after their superb promotion season and they beat you 2-0 in the opening game. Did they play well or was it just a bad day for you?

2: You finished 14th last season and gave us a fright at the Stadium of Light. Is mid-table safety enough or can you defy the odds and climb to a higher level?

3: John Coleman has enjoyed, by current standards, two amazingly long tenures as manager. Is he still the right man for the job, and why?

4: The club that wouldn’t die and all that. Is there something special about being a Stanley supporter, with elite clubs not far away?

5: Promotion in 2017-18 must have been great. Any other major highs as a fan? And what about the lows?

6: Your thoughts on Sunderland – the club, the fans, the city and region, Jack Ross …

7: League Cup: a good opportunity or a nuisance?

8: Hand on heart, where will our two clubs finish in League One this season?

9: Will you be at the match? What is your score prediction?
