Cracking Football Echo: Sunderland celebrate O’Neill appointment

Have your say

Don’t miss tonight’s Football Echo – as we cover all the bases on the day Sunderland appointed Martin O’Neill as manager on a three-year contract.

Chris Young looks at the job ahead for O’Neill, with the Black Cats struggling near the bottom of the table ahead of tomorrow’s trip to Wolves.

Jimmy Montgomery and fellow former Sunderland player Kieron Brady give their views on O’Neill’s arrival, with Dennis Tueart also backing the Irishman, a one-time team-mate at Manchester City, to succeed on Wearside.

Marco Gabbiadini, in his exclusive column, hopes Sunderland fans enjoy the ride under O’Neill.

We also have two pages of letters, plus Yesterdays, Tony Gillan’s unmissable View From The Bridge and Frank Malley’s Inside Football column.

As well as all that, we’ve got all the live action, including Newcastle’s 3-0 defeat to Chelsea, plus six pages of local football and our eight-page Junior Football Echo, featuring all the action from the Russell Foster Youth League.

Don’t miss tonight’s Football Echo – the best read of the week – a keepsake on the day Martin O’Neill finally joined his boyhood heroes.
