Soapbox: Villa(ins) of the piece

It’s perhaps too early to panic, but there is no mistaking the gloom that has descended on the Stadium of Light. If losing 2-0 to a buoyant Aston Villa side was not in itself disastrous, the defeat followed all too many dismal Sunderland performances.

Wolves fans deserve a refund, but what’s gone wrong for us?

The dreadful run continues.

History lesson: the game that left Toon feeling doon

During Sunderland’s recent spell of post-Arsenal under-achievement, Newcastle have been recording wins against mighty opposition to stay top of the division that isn’t the Premier.
