Adnan Januzaj and Sunderland - A Good Match?

Sunderland have got to play catch up this summer after unexpectedly losing Sam Allardyce to England. David Moyes has come into the club and returned to the Premier League after his disappointing spell at Manchester United. It is a good fit for the Scotsman and he has a good foundation left by Allardyce to build on.

David Moyes - A good fit for Sunderland?

Sam Allardyce is set to take the England job, which leaves Sunderland in a difficult position. They wouldn't have expected to lose Allardyce this summer when the season finished and they may not have a contingency plan. They can't afford to leave the vacancy open too long, as the new manager needs to come in and get his ideas across to the squad before the season begins. The transfer window is open, and Sunderland have yet to make any moves, …
What Do Sunderland Need to do This Summer?

What Do Sunderland Need to do This Summer?

Sunderland did very well to survive the threat of relegation once again and they are quickly becoming a specialist in surviving the drop from seemingly perilous positions. In Sam Allardyce, they have a manager who is proven in the top flight and won't settle for another relegation scare in his first full season in charge.

Survival Hope for the North East

Survival Hope for the North East

I can personally testify to the passion the North East of England has for football and whilst in recent decades its three main clubs do not have the trophies to match the depth of meaning football holds in the region, it can still point to a number of legendary names that emanate from the area. Bobby Robson, Brian Clough, Bobby Charlton, Jack Charlton, Paul Gascoigne, Peter Beardsley and Alan Shearer are all names synonymous with success, and all hail from …

The Relegation Battle: Five Weeks Left | Infographics

With only weeks of football left, for the bottom five clubs in the Premier League it has all come down to this. Some have their hopes of survival hanging by a thread - and some slimmer than that - whilst others are looking up the table rather than down.
