The only team in the NE that Bears should entertain. Forget present staff, the history of the region says HA’WAY THE LADS. Down on Friday to hopefully see the ship righted. Still in our hands to go up but by god our CHs are rank rotten
Flanagan was especially shite yesterday, even my kids were laughing at him. But there weren't many pass marks at all.

Sunderland are the north east equivalent of Celtic. Founded on the basis of mass catholic immigration who moved over to work in the shipyards. Fck em.
Celtic never became big because of the shipyards, we did however with the mass movement of Belfast shipyard workers to the Clyde.

Sunderland is no different from other towns /cities around the uk, lots of bears ( like me ), lots who support the local team but side with us...also lots of taigs, theres a taig supporters club in Sunderland, though i think they merged with the Tyneside branch.

I don't know why every thread about an English team turns into half the posters calling them tims and the other half saying they prefer us.

I would imagine the vast majority of Sunderland fans don't give a shit about us or them.
The ones I was with at Wembley the other week were all pro Rangers, absolutely hate Celtc ,and asked what’s the crack with them and Palestine ? I don’t really know but whereabouts in Glasgow is Palestine got a few laughs

Aye but it's all about the 'second teams'

Quite enjoy watching these threads descend.

Ironically I just finished watching The Netflix documentary.to be honest always had a soft spot for Sunderland since they won the fa cup in 73 and seeing a Sunderland loyalists banner at Ibrox in the early to mid 80’s.was at the game down there in 93 and all the Sunderland fans I came across that day were a good bunch.
Watching the documentary Bain and jimmy sinclair talking about signing policies sent shivers down my spine

Element of truth there and goes for most clubs in England

They've had games in hand for the last few months, which, if they'd won, would always see them second, which I suppose would offer some level of confidence that they'd be set for promotion.

That should still be the case if they win their one remaining game in hand they have over Barnsley, However, Pompey have turned up the heat over the last few weeks after falling away badly (they're only separated by goal difference at the moment though Pompey also have a game in hand over Barnsley).

It's Sunderland v Pompey on 27 April, massive game. I think Sunderland will just edge into second place in the end.

I wouldn't rule out Charlton, best team ive seen in that division and best player in Lyle Taylor imo. Hitting form at the right time.

You just made that up - can only assume you're a grade A twat or have leanings towards N******E Utd. Most of the "mass catholic immigration" you strangely speak of settled in the North West and Lancashire. SAFC were founded by a school teacher!!! Got load of mates down Sunderland way and most have a preference towards us (and a lot like Hearts too) Celtic fucking hated down there.

Glad they lost!
Hoping we can win our remaining games and the Sunderland v Pompey game is a draw, then we're up automatic. Knowing Barnsley we can mess it up tho!

Trust me mate there’s no love between Sunderland and the Spoon Burners as the pleasantries exchanged prior and after the pre-season friendly at Easter Road 2/3 years back showed :cool:.

I wish them all the best, and the same to the other teams going for promotion.
They are a big club with so much potential, I know there is major differences between our game and the game in England,but I still can't believe a club of that size is in the third tier.
:oops:
