Don’t miss your fabulous Football Echo – the best read of the week.
Read Graeme Anderson’s blow by blow account of where it went wrong for Sunderland in this evening’s game at newly-promoted Crystal Palace, and see if you agree with Chris Young in his post-match verdict.
Today’s Premier League action is supported by the biggest and best coverage of Sunderland. Craig Gardner gives an insight into new boy Ondrej Celustka, we reveal why the summer chase for Lucas Orban fell through and we look ahead to Monday’s transfer deadline day – with Ki signed and Alexander Buttner next in Paolo Di Canio’s wanted list.
We also discover Jordan Laidler enjoying life at Chester, on loan from Sunderland, and report on the young Black Cats’ 1-1 Under-18 draw with Arsenal.
Plus, there’s Tony Gillan’s brilliant View From The Bridge, giving everyone a chuckle after a trying weekend of football, and Yesterdays goes back to 1975 for a Tony Towers-inspired win over Blackpool, and your letters.
With seven pages of local football, and reports from the cricketing successes of Durham and England, it’s an unmissable package.
