Sunderland’s last-gasp defeat to Arsenal is the feature of this weekend’s Football Echo – out now, priced 70p – the best buy of the weekend.
Relive the action from the Stadium of Light with Graeme Anderson’s in-depth match report.
We also speak to James McClean, on target again today, about his goal rush for the Wearsiders, and Jack Colback reveals his ambitions from midfield – after the delight of scoring in the midweek FA Cup win at Middlesbrough.
Kieran Richardson discussed Sunderland’s strong defensive showings, and we’ve got all your usual favourite – Marco Gabbiadini’s exclusive column, Tony Gillan’s unmissable View From The Bridge, Yesterdays, a page of your letters and an SAFC quiz.
On top of all that, there’s all today’s live action, eight pages of the Junior Football Echo – looking at the Russell Foster Youth League – and four pages of local football, including team pictures of West End Potters, Aquatic Sports and Seaham Harkers Bar. We delve into the archives to look back at the local scene 10, 20, 30 and 40 years ago, with a team picture of Seaham Red Star’s 1991/92 side.
