The Football Echo is out now with the best buy of the week – with the biggest and best coverage of Sunderland AFC.
On-loan Nicklas Bendtner reveals how his move to Sunderland is a life-changing event, Jack Colback hails the growth of the club’s youngsters and David Meyler pays tribute to Fraizer Campbell as he battles back from serious injury.
Ahmed Elmohamady looks at the importance of Bob Bradley’s arrival as the new manager of Egypt, while Graeme Anderson discusses the big changes at the Stadium of Light this week, as Niall Quinn changes role and Ellis Short takes over as chairman.
Graeme also delves into the planned move of away fans at the Stadium of Light, and believes it’s an idea which can only help Sunderland.
We’ve got two pages of letters, plus your usual favourites – Marco Gabbiadini’s exclusive column, Tony Gillan’s View From The Bridge and Brian Patterson’s away guide to Arsenal.
As well as that, there’s an SAFC quiz and Yesterdays, looking back on an incident-packed 2-2 draw with European champions Nottingham Forest in 1980.
Plus we’ve got five pages of local football, including team pictures of Murton, Easington Colliery, Victoria Gardens, South Hylton WMC and the Guide Post.
Followers of the Russell Foster Youth League can catch up with all the action in our eight-page Junior Football Echo.
