  1. Smelly supporters

    Despite local police denying that the incident even occurred, large numbers of Sunderland fans have still reported witnessing a huge pile of $h!t at the Stadium of Light this weekend, and claim that it is not an isolated incident, stating that it has been a regular occurrence inside the ground for at least the past 2 seasons........................... 🤣🤣
  2. Smelly supporters

    I sit in SK1, I’ve had a new seat for this season, and I go on my own, I want to know if this is me!! It’s not going to make me wash more, but I will try and start more Mexican waves if it is me!!!
  3. Stoke away - 12.30pm, Sat 4 Nov

    First time driving to the bet365, any recommendations of places to park near the ground?
  4. New chants and songs

    Claude Puel, Woah, Claude Puel, Woah, The man was born in France, He’s got no ****ing chance!! 😂 👍
  5. Next City Manager?

    Here’s my oddball list of managers that could end up being in the frame, make of it what you will........ Aitor Karanka Steve Bruce Gary Rowett Guus Hiddink Carlos Carvalhal Garry Monk I think a couple of these are the ones that are more likely to come to the fore in the next few days, when Dyche rules himself out.
  6. Next City Manager?

    Although I was starting to lose patience it’s CS, every time we sack a manager I always think to myself “realistically, what’s next?” and it’s always the same old story..... Big names get mentioned that we honestly have no hope of attracting (Mancini, Klopp, this time Ancelotti....) Then the ones that people are divided on, but who could actually do a job, rule themselves out (MON’s return, Tuchel, Big Sam...... Dyche????) Then reality dawns on people that the people that are actually interested are dross (Hodgson, Coleman, Pardew.......) So panic sets in with us fans, followed by a twist being appointed that no-one expects (Sven, Pearsons return, Ranieiri). I’m expecting an appointment that has hardly been mentioned at all so far (no clue who!), but I honestly think it could be someone totally out of left field. Hold onto your hats guys!!!
  7. Most Punchable Current Footballer

    There’s a few, but Jordan Henderson has to be target No 1. I’ve never known such an unsportsmanlike, whiney, moaning M*ther****er in all my life. If he could get 4 opposition players sent off in every game, to win every game by default, he would. Utter scum. Not fit to wear ANY clubs football shirt.
  8. 1st half was beyond dire. Shinji lit the fires second half, and has to start on Saturday alongside Vardy (assuming he's fit). He just brings so much extra energy to the side. I though Dragovic did well tonight, did everything simple and no-nonsense, and could work well with Maguire in the future. Slimani's finish was excellent, and his workrate seems much better this season, but his first touch can be awful at times. Did my eyes deceive me? Did Gray put in a cross near the end of the game??!!! and here I was thinking he didn't know how to! Makes a change from the "cut in on right and shoot" that seems to be his only thought when getting on the ball. He needs to do more crossing and variations if he wants more game time. I like the lad, but he has to be less predictable. Iborra seems to be strong and combative, would like to see more of him asap. Disappointments tonight? I still think Chilwell makes too many errors, and gets caught out of position too much. Ndidi wins the ball back well, only to give it away again straight away at the minute. It seems like he has lost a bit of composure? Albrighton is our best crosser of a ball, but isn't getting into effective forward positions recently to provide them. Maybe not his fault, but his main attribute is wasted currently. Did we have a right back first half? Amartey was non existent, leaving Robertson to put in cross after cross for them. Ulloa, enough said. Overall some really positive things, but only really from the second half.
  9. Adrien Silva

    Everyone needs to calm down a bit. European transfers aren't quite as simple as English club to club transfers, there are extra parties involved, like the Portuguese FA for one, so it can take longer to confirm a transfer. Drinkwater to Chelsea, although conducted at the same time, only involved the English FA, with a notification email going to UEFA, it was a lot simpler process. Following on from that, we wouldn't be able to officially announce a signing until everyone involved has confirmed their acceptance of the deal. This sort of delay isn't at all out of the ordinary. Everyone chill!
  10. Slimani

    I think some of our fans are going to be disappointed in the near future. It seems that the fans that are saying "sell Slimani" are also the ones considering replacements for him........... There isn't going to be a replacement for him. It was a choice between Ulloa and Slimani, the difference being Ulloa is (slightly) happier to rotate in the squad (as long as he sees that it does rotate), and Slimani being worth more in the transfer market. We're not going to go through the season with 5 first team strikers, so don't expect anyone to come in when Slimani goes. (And with Ulloa signing a new contract, Slimani will go assuming there is a suitable offer). Personally, I would have preferred to keep Slimani over Ulloa, but Slim wouldn't have been happy. It's been an awkward situation.
  11. Andros Townsend...

    Statistically, Townsend is in the top 10 crossers in the PL, and has been for a couple of years, same as albrighton. He doesn't have Mahrez's flair, but to say he isn't creative would be unfair. i'd take him for the right price.
  12. Tom Lawrence

    Shakespeare didn't want to sell, we originally turned the offer down. Lawrence has been waiting to see how the transfer window is panning out, knowing that Musa was the one we were looking to offload, and Mahrez possibly going too. With no movement on either front, and Derby leaving their offer on the table, he's now told us he wants the move. That's changed the situation somewhat, as it's made it perfectly clear there is absolutely no chance of him signing a new contract, so he would definitely be gone for nothing next year. We've reluctantly decided to cash in, and let him have his move. On the plus side, we're now pushing forward in our pursuit of adding another winger, hence why we're the rumour mill is starting to churn again!
  13. One more signing

    My frustration isn't with people who wanted sigurdsson rather than iheanacho, it's with people still going on about getting a CAM now that we have Iheanacho! I (kind of) understand people being worried about creativity, but it has to come from the current positions, i.e. The wingers and Central Midfield. I wonder where we can get more creative though? Mahrez on the right (until he leaves) Albrighton/Gray on the left, James/DD in the middle (alongside Ndidi who sits). In all fairness, the creativity should already be there........ they just have to perform as we know they can!
  14. One more signing

    This^^^^ for the sake of Jesus Christ THIS^^^ I can't believe how many people are going on about a CAM, when we'd have to change style & formation to fit one in, not to mention who we would have to leave out?? if you have a CAM, you either play 4-4-1-1 , i.e. No iheanacho in the side, or you play 3-5-2, where you need 3 centre backs and 2 wing backs, which currently we don't have, not genuine tried and tested ones anyway.......... once we signed iheanacho, getting a CAM went out the window, how is this so hard for people to get??? It was always going to be either Sigurdsson (a CAM in a 4-4-1-1) OR iheanacho!
  15. Other teams signings so far

    I worry for teams like Watford, Crystal Palace, the 3 that came up, and even Southampton. Burnley & Swansea aren't exactly bringing in anyone worthwhile either, but to me they look more stable than the others.
