Wise Men Say Podcast live at The Southwark Brewery! 02/09/17

Join us at The Southwark Brewery for another WMS live show on Saturday September 2nd!

 

We’ll be joined by former Sunderland goalkeeper and journalist David Preece. Doors are at 7pm and tickets are available HERE for £10 (plus £1 booking fee). Plus a FREE PINT with every ticket!

 

It will be six or so games into the new season. Will we have any players by then? Will we have a new owner? Will we have a manager? Will we have won a game or two?

 

There’ll be plenty to discuss and it should be another great night. It was incredibly popular last time we did a show at the Brewery and it sold out in a couple of weeks, so I’d suggest you move fast!

 

We look forward to seeing you there!

No Stephen again this week, so Gareth is joined by WMS contributor Richard Easterbrook and The Evening Chronicle’s James Hunter.

Wise Men Say – The Preview Show with Sun FM – Derby County (H)

A new season, but maybe not the optimism that should not all come with it.

 

Sunderland begin their first Championship season in a decade at home to Derby County on the back of that awful game against Celtic. We get the lowdown on Simon Grayson from Simon Crabtree and hear from Derby County podcaster Chris Parsons. We also hear from the gaffer himself.

 

No Stephen this week, so Gareth is joined by WMS contributor Craig Clark and The Sunderland Echo’s Phil Smith.

The SAFC Best Foreign XI Of The Last Ten Years

Kicking off some random best line ups for Sunderland over the last ten years is Rory Fallow…

We’re now at the point in the funeral where the tears have well and truly dried. You’re now at the wake, having a pint and reminiscing about the good times. It’s still a sombre affair but at least you can smile now, share a joke about when things weren’t so bad, when there was still hope.

 

Hope on Wearside is probably best exemplified by our recent foreign legion. In previous Premier League stints, our squads were built on so much Britishness that David Moyes would have been beside himself, had he had the chance to manage them. Peter Reid did have his fare share of overseas lads but the foundations of the squad were still built on the likes of Kevin Phillips, Kevin Ball, Michael Gray, Gavin McCann and Niall Quinn. As British Isles as you can get.

 

Under Mick McCarthy, Sunderland almost exclusively shopped in the domestic market. This made the return to the Premier League under Roy Keane, backed by a far thicker wallet than his predecessors, all the more exciting. So with no further adieu, I give you the best Sunderland foreign side of the past ten years. Lined up in a slightly less exotic 4-4-2.
