John McCormick writes: Malcolm said over the weekend that “with no game between now and the Checkatrade Trophy final, the Salut! Sunderland team will no doubt be racking their collective brains trying to think up articles that will keep the readership ticking over.” Of course we will, and ideas are already being drafted out.

Ten Years After: please let it be like this at Birmingham tonight

Jake: 'no mind-expanding drugs were taken in the making of this design'
