Jake wants answers …

It would be an exaggeration to say Salut! Sunderland expects dozens of Stanley fans to turn up here and answer the questions below. Our Who are You? feature is in its dying days.

 

The death of Who are You? is a great shame – well, maybe only a small shame. It’s been fun to do, but simply too time-consuming given the modest resources of this site.

In all honesty, posting questions here in open letter format was never really likely to bring in lots of opposing fans even though they see the invitation via newsnow.co.uk. It just seemed worth a try; had the supporters of other clubs responded as well as did Ipswich fans, the series would be continuing.

But it hasnt happened. That has nothing to do with, for example, Accrington Stanley’s small fan base. We can tell from our internal systems data that lots of opposing fans, including some driven here by links at newsnow.co.uk, visited Salut! Sunderland, have seen the open invitation to have their say. They simply chose not to respond.

So be it. But on the off chance that some Stanley devotee out there sees this and wishes to offer his or gee thoughts, here are the questions again (updated since they originally applied to the league cup game) …

 


Salut! Sunderland Question 1: Just one league win and hovering above the relegation zone: how confident are you of getting out of trouble?

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 if so, 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?

Guess the Score – but just for fun. Click the banner ..

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: What were we like at your place in the league cup?

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?
