STARTING XI: Is this the team that Chris Coleman will pick when Sunderland face Brentford?

It looks like Sunderland could shift to a more traditional formation on Saturday against Brentford. Are these the eleven players that will take to the field in red and white? Goalkeeper: Lee Camp Continuing between the sticks this weekend will undoubtedly be Cardiff City loanee Lee Camp who, unless he’s injured, is certain to start each and every game from now until the end of the season. The former Rotherham stopper hasn’t enjoyed the best of starts since arriving here, conceding five goals across the two games that he’s played in so far, but can’t really accused of being at fault...

Racism in the stands: Sunderland fans must do their utmost to extinguish the vile minority

Racism in the stands: Sunderland fans must do their utmost to extinguish the vile minority

We - firstly humans and secondly supporters - must be accountable in at least trying to stamp this vile racism out of our stadiums and the game. It was at around the 2-0 mark during the first-half at Ashton Gate when the bloke behind me openly and confidently hurled racist abuse at Ashley Fletcher for failing to hold up one of Lee Camp’s goal kicks - the type of jeer that pierces the silence and disappointment with flecks of spit and a brazen level of discrimination. I think most of us have heard this sort of racism at some point or another when we’ve been to watch Sunderland, and...

STARTING XI: Is this the team that Chris Coleman will pick when Sunderland face Bristol City?

Is this the starting eleven that Chris Coleman will select for tomorrow’s MASSIVE game down at Ashton Gate when Sunderland take on playoff hopefuls Bristol City? Goalkeeper: Lee Camp News this week emerged that Dutch stopper Robbin Ruiter has been ruled out for between eight and twelve weeks having badly dislocated his finger, meaning that the competition for the Sunderland number one spot has become a two-horse race. Despite a move to Derby County breaking down late on deadline day, summer acquisition Jason Steele has returned back to Wearside in order to provide cover for loanee Lee...

Discussing Coleman’s starting XI; Does the Sunderland gaffer stick with a five man defence?

Discussing Coleman’s starting XI; Does the Sunderland gaffer stick with a five man defence?

The window has shut and Chris Coleman now knows what he has at his disposal. How does he make the best use of what he has? Today we analyse our defence. Goalkeeper RR Selection: Lee Camp has been brought in on loan from Cardiff City to provide competition, primarily, for Robbin Ruiter. Having seen first-hand the calamities that both inherited keepers are prone to, it’s no wonder Coleman gave Camp his debut against Ipswich. Did he instill a new sense of confidence or is he ‘more of the same’? I suspect his Championship experience will see him afforded a few more opportunities for us...

Sunderland 0-2 Ipswich: PATHETIC defeat once more for Coleman’s men; Player ratings & report

Sunderland 0-2 Ipswich: PATHETIC defeat once more for Coleman’s men; Player ratings & report

Despite a decent start, Sunderland ballsed up and conceded two poor goals in the first half, losing 2-0 to Mick McCarthy’s Ipswich Town. Here’s how the lads rated, and how the game went. Sunderland were easily beaten this afternoon at the Stadium of Light, losing 2-0. Despite an influx of new players the same defensive and goal-scoring problems remain, but poor results for our relegation rivals keep us in the race to stay in the Championship. Lineups Sunderland: Lee Camp, Adam Matthews, Billy Jones, John O’Shea, Tyias Browning, Bryan Oviedo, Lee Cattermole, Ethan Robson, Ovie...

Sunderland’s January transfer business - a cause for cautious optimism or genuine concern?

Sunderland’s January transfer business - a cause for cautious optimism or genuine concern?

This past month has cemented the notion that the club have fallen from grace; however, could recent signings be cause for cautious optimism? One permanent addition, four loan signings and several departures was the story of Sunderland’s January transfer window. Jake Clarke-Salter, Kazenga LuaLua, Ovie Ejaria, Ashley Fletcher, and Lee Camp all made their way to the north east, brought to the club by Chris Coleman as he looks to quickly assemble a side capable of avoiding the drop. Out went a host of players including Lewis Grabban and James Vaughan - our only two senior striking options -...

DEADLINE DAY: Sunderland sign experienced Cardiff keeper at the last minute; but is he any good?

DEADLINE DAY: Sunderland sign experienced Cardiff keeper at the last minute; but is he any good?

Lee Camp has finalized a move to Wearside as the former Cardiff shot stopper leaves Wales in search of first-team football - but is he any good? Sunderland have confirmed the signing of Cardiff’s Lee Camp on a season long loan deal from Cardiff City. Thirty-three-year-old Camp brings a wealth of experience to the side with almost 500 career appearances to his name. Starting out with Derby County, Camp went onto make a number of appearances for the likes of QPR, Nottingham Forest, Bournemouth and Rotherham United before signing for the Bluebirds in the summer where he has yet to make a...
