Always poorly attended, similar to Boro. 

Awful train journey and unattractive place. 

Seem to remember taking a lot when we won 4-1 though?

Back when we had a spell of putting on free coaches. 

I’ve been twice and seen us win both times; first was the 2-0 win in a relegation battle (McCarthy’s first game) then the 4-1. 

I’m afraid of going again in case I ruin my 100% record. Won’t be there this weekend.

Went in the cup night match few seasons back we were in the top tier, is that still the case, can generate decent atmosphere up there. 

Once you get your breath back down to normal after those fucking steps!

Not sure why folk don't have a night in Newcastle, great city. Think you can get the Metro to SoL too.

Not a great time to play Sunderland given the form they’re in.

Need to bounce back however, snap your hand off for a draw.

Fixtures don’t get much easier for the rest of September and October with the exception of Shrewsbury and Gillingham. 

if we can get through our next 8 games with 12-15points that should set us up nicely for November and December where the 9 games we have are considerably “nicer” on paper. Would be looking to pick up 18+ points there, should have a fully fit squad by then too.

You just never know Mantra, this may be the point Sunderland slip a bit (clutches at straws!) from over confidence? I think we were lucky playing Ipswich when we did so let’s hope we can carry that on with some of the others? Like you I’d be more than happy with a point on Saturday.

I don't think we were lucky at all playing Ipswich when we did.  It was inevitable they were going to start winning after the squad they'd assembled and it was perfectly set up for us to be the fall guys.  Thankfully, we were too good and they won next time out instead at Lincoln.

It's better this Saturday.  Few neutrals will give us a chance.  We might surprise one or two.

Sunderland will get a backlash against us, big pitch can spread the play really wide. I fear for us being completely overran if Sheehan and Sarcevic play together. Has to be Lee MJ & Sarc for me

Sunderland threw away a 2 goal lead at Fleetwood last time out; far from unbeatable. Their fans are quick to turn on them if all is not going well. A point, at least.

Belgrade massive making trip? 

They are but I’m not. Was away last week, and our Maude is working so I have to parent occasionally to stop the social coming round
