Accrington Stanley vs Sunderland: just as we were enjoying a break from football …

Click on the image above, post your scoreline prediction and - whoever you support - you may win a prize

Yes, it’s back. Proper football, I mean, says Monsieur Salut. Along with plenty of others, if probably still a minority, I tend to regard international breaks as weekends without football.

Luke O’Nien […]

Perhaps it was all the whingeing on social media about Jack Ross and the shortcomings of Sunderland’s transfer dealings. Perhaps it was a return, despite all we had to spend to put things right, of the occasional redirection from our pages to a rogue Turkish escort site (if anyone knows of a legal way of […]

Click the banner to guess the score

An interesting dilemma faces Jack Ross ahead of Peterborough away. He made eight changes for the Carabao Cup visit to Burnley and watched in admiration as the team came from behind to secure a marvellous 3-1 win and a third round trip to another Premier League side, Sheffield United. There were excellent individual performances – […]

Sixer’s Sevens: Grigg’s off the mark and Burnley are turfed out of the cup

Jake

Pete Sixsmith gets to a lot of Sunderland games home and away – though he’s introduced a ban on matches south of Lincoln this season – and whizzed across the Pennines to show solidarity with Bury and Bolton and watch the Lads at Turf Moor. Only the Carabao Cup.

Burnley fans who recall straying here in the past may also remember we would preview each game between our clubs with comprehensive question-and-answer interviews with one of their fellow supporters. That has changed, not because we are now two divisions lower than the last time we met but because we have introduced a simplified version […]
