Leicester City vs Sunderland Preview | Team News, Stats & Key Men

The Foxes have only picked up 1 point since their historic 5-3 win at home to Manchester United and only scored 2 goals in games succeeding the afternoon of the 21st of September.

Sunderland v Arsenal Preview | Team News, Key Men and Stats

Gus Poyet called it "my most embarrassing moment both as a player or manager." Were Southampton really eight goals better than their opponents last time out? No, they were not. Better yes, but what will disappoint Poyet is the manner of the collapse. Players going missing, not trying, and making errors so bad that even a schoolboy would be embarrassed. Only two narrow losses before the Southampton debacle doesn't speak of a side that should be humbled so comprehensively, and …
2014/15 Season Preview: Sunderland

2014/15 Season Preview: Sunderland

Sunderland have big hopes this season under Gus Poyet, as they have done previously under the plethora of talented managers that have led the Black Cats into a new season. The likes of Steve Bruce, Martin O'Neill and Paulo Di Canio have all failed to push on from encouraging starts, but Poyet looks like he could lead Sunderland to better things. Last season, they escaped from a near impossible position after impressive wins against Chelsea and Manchester United. The Uruguayan …
What Has Gone Wrong At Sunderland?

What Has Gone Wrong At Sunderland?

Sunderland entered the season with so much promise after surviving the drop last campaign. The club had brought in several highly rated players to join their squad and in Paulo di Canio, they had a manager who they thought could lead the club forwards. They soon found out the latter wasn't true and quickly replaced the Italian before too much damage was done, but they have continued to underwhelm in the league. The North East side are now sitting at …

Tottenham Hotspur 5 Sunderland 1 | Match Stats & Tactical Analysis

Sunderland and Tottenahm came into this Monday night match with just two wins between them across both teams' last five league fixtures. The poor run of form left Sunderland bottom of the Premier League and Spurs sitting just outside a Europa League spot in seventh position, one point behind Manchester United. Tottenham still had an ever so slight chance of catching both Everton and Arsenal to grab a Champions League spot this season but needed this home match to go …

Mackems Maintain Momentum As They Dominate Tyne-Wear Derby... Again

Sunderland leapt out of the relegation zone last Saturday lunchtime thanks to a stunning victory on Tyneside. The Mackems humiliated the Geordie's on their own turf for the second year running, handing them their third victory over Newcastle in under 12 months. Gus Poyet has overseen a dramatic improvement in his side's recent performances and most crucially, the results have also been positive. They have scraped themselves from off the foot of the table in recent weeks, showing tremendous form in …
Adam Johnson: A World Cup Option?

Adam Johnson: A World Cup Option?

After a week that saw Theo Walcott ruled out of the World Cup in the summer, Adam Johnson’s hat-trick – the first non-Suarez hat-trick since May 2013 – has unsurprisingly seen his name mooted as a replacement. The Sunderland winger, who hasn’t featured for England since August 2012, also added an assist to his 3 goals against Fulham on Saturday and Johnson still holds hopes for breaking into the England squad before this summer’s tournament. The talent is clearly evident …
