Sunderland are looking good again, but is it all too late?

Sunderland’s new signings have impressed since being introduced to the first team and the side are slowly looking more and more like a Sam Allardyce outfit. But, has it all come too late? The defence, bar Billy Jones, is looking tighter and that is mainly due to the arrivals of Lamine Kone and Jan Kirchhoff. At the other end of the field, Wahbi Khazri has impressed the fans as he is willing to run all day long and has a wicked set...

Who are Sunderland’s new signings?

As the transfer window nears its close, just who are the players that Big Sam has brought in to strengthen Sunderland’s squad. I use the word strengthen optimistically, as it is very rare that the club actually sign anyone capable of strengthening a Premier League squad. It was abundantly clear that Sunderland were not cut out for the Premier League this season during their performance in a 1-1 draw with Bournemouth at the Stadium of...

New Year, New Sunderland?

If the Premier League started on January 1, 2016, Sunderland would be top of the league with two wins from two, scoring seven goals and possessing the top goalscorer in the division, Jermain Defoe. A pretty pointless stat I know, but us Sunderland fans have to make the most of positive results as they happen so very rarely. After not being able to gain a single point throughout the whole of December, Big Sam has managed to turn around...

Sunderland need more than a miracle if they are to stay up

Sunderland have endured one of the worst calendar years imaginable in 2015. As if the 2014/15 season wasn’t bad enough, the Black Cats have duly continued that form into the 2015/16 season. According to the latest stats on Sky Sports, Sunderland rank joint 89th (with Newcastle) on points per game through the calendar year out of the 92 teams that make up the top four divisions. It really put in perspective how bad things are at the...

Lack of quality proving to be Sunderland’s downfall

It’s amazing how quickly things change in the space of two weeks. At my last time of writing I wrote about how we’d turned a corner, but once again we haven’t pushed on from that. We possibly deserved more than a defeat against Arsenal but the Watford game, in my opinion, we deserved nothing. It is very apparent at Sunderland, and has been for a long time, that we don’t tend to perform for the full 90 minutes. Now I know you can’t...

How Big Sam has changed Sunderland’s fortunes around

Sunderland have won back-to-back games in the Premier League after beating Crystal Palace and Stoke City. This has seen them jump out of the relegation zone and above rivals Newcastle. But what has changed since Big Sam took over? Well, it has taken time but Allardyce is slowly finding his best team. It looked a distant dream that we’d even win another game this season after the 6-2 defeat away to Everton, but Big Sam has managed to...
