Don’t miss tonight’s value-for-money Football Echo – the best read of the week.
Steve Bruce tells us of his hopes for the current Sunderland squad, feeling they could be in for “special” times.
We also speak to David Vaughan, who is relishing providing the ammunition for fellow new boy Nicklas Bendtner, while Seb Larsson looks to maintain last week’s fine form in Monday’s trip to Norwich.
Connor Wickham reveals just how he ended up at Sunderland in the summer, and we also have interviews with Ahmed Elmohamady, Simon Mignolet and James McClean.
There are all the usual favourites – Marco Gabbiadini’s exclusive column, Tony Gillan’s unputdownable View From The Bridge, a busy letters page, an SAFC quiz and Yesterdays, going back to 1984 for a Roker Park draw with Coventry.
There’s also a cracking colour poster of the 1977/78 Sunderland squad.
There are four pages packed with all the latest from the local football scene, plus eight pages of the Junior Football Echo, focusing on the Russell Foster Youth League.
With tomorrow and Monday’s race cards, and all today’s live action, it makes for an unmissable package, the bargain of the week at just 70p.
