sunderland in a nutshell Sunderland Football Club began its life in October 1879 at a meeting of schoolteachers called by James Allan, graduate of Glasgow University, who had started teaching at Hendon Board School. At first the club was called Sunderland and District Teachers’ Association Football Club. After the first year, non-teachers were allowed to join and the name was changed to Sunderland AFC. Their first ground was Blue House Field at Hendon. After two years there, two at a ground at Ashbrooke and a brief spell playing near The Cedars in Sunderland, the club moved north of the river, to fields in Roker and Fulwell, and then in 1886 to Newcastle Road - with stands which could hold 15,000 spectators. In 1882 they played in blue shirts, blue knickerbockers and a white stripe, using the playing formation of 1.2.2.6. In 1884 the club won its first trophy. There were now so many football clubs around the country that the FA set up county competitions. Sunderland were the first winners of the Durham ...

ALS NEWS ROUNDUP FINAL DAY HAVING FLASHBACKS Recently released Sunderland defender Carlos Cuellar is a target for Crystal Palace, whilst it is also rumoured that Leicester City have a made a bid for recently relegated and Former Sunderland treatment table dweller Fraizer Campbell (is that unfair?). Meanwhile David Luiz is making a £44million move to PSG from Chelsea, I'm nervously awaiting the inevitable £60million bid for Lee Cattermole. What has been confirmed however is that both Keiren Westwood and Oscar Ustari will be released, or at least are set to be pending contract renewals, which seems a lot more likely with Ustari than Westwood. Colback and Larsson are still anybody's guess however, with Colback being linked to West Ham and Larsson apparently being measured up by clubs abroad. Connor Wickham has admitted that he did not retaliate to Paolo Di Canio's potshots at him in press conferences, as he new the crackpot manager just wanted a reaction out of him. He said: “He's his own man and he can ...

Stoke confirm Bardsley deal Stoke have confirmed the signing of defender Phil Bardsley from Sunderland on a three-year deal. Last Updated: 22/05/14 at 18:56 Post Comment Premier League Top Half Finish 14/15 Top Half Finish: Stoke 7/4 Phil Bardsley: Had been one of Sunderland's longest-serving players Bardsley decided not to extend his lengthy Black Cats stay and will officially join the Potters on July 1 after his deal expires at the Stadium of Light. The full-back has been at Sunderland since 2008, moving to Wearside from Manchester United, and finishes with 200 appearances and 11 goals. He ended a difficult final season at the club on a high after playing his part in a dramatic escape from relegation. Paolo Di Canio had frozen out the defender during his spell in charge, but he was recalled by the Italian's successor Gus Poyet and repaid his faith in the closing months. The 28-year-old was a regular in the side as Sunderland mounted a late survival push, eventually finishing in 14th place, four points c ...

Would love to see Paolo Di Canio come in as attacking coach.
Entertainment will be hard to achieve with only £20 million: This afternoon I was asked by Daily Mail Sports to give my thoughts about Sam Allardyce creating entertainment next season on a budget of £20m. Sam Allardyce has been ordered to entertain the Hammers faithful next season, and has reportedly been given a £20million budget, together with a new attacking coach, to achieve this feat. I have great respect for Allardyce, simply because of what he has done for West Ham; getting us promoted at the first time of asking and avoiding relegation in our first two seasons back in the Premier League. But demanding entertaining football from him might just be a step too far. Sam is an excellent survivalist who buys experienced survivalist players based on statistics. The problem is the board and the fans now want more than this. We want to be entertained and push for a top eight league position. Some people outside of West Ham will say we want our cake and to eat it too, but the chairmen have invested huge p ...
Weird that the Charlton manager has left his job already. I could see them getting Paolo Di Canio, but maybe they should get Curbishley back
Paolo di Canio will never, ever be employed by West Ham in any capacity as manager, coach, tea boy or even gardener by the current owners. Get over it and move on!

Arsenal V Sunderland: Team News, Possible Line-Ups, Tactics, And Prediction Arsenal FC V Sunderland FC Emirates Stadium, London February 21, 2014; 15:00 GMT *** Arsenal FC and Sunderland FC will play each other this Saturday. Arsenal won the first encounter between these two, a 3-1 win at the Stadium of Light. In that match, Arsenal and their fans were riding of beating Tottenham and signing Mesut Ozil. In that game, Mesut Ozil showcased his quality both on the counterattack and when Arsenal played a possession game and Aaron Ramsey continued his fantastic goal-scoring record to start the season with a brace. Recently, Arsenal have done their title chances no favors by dropping points at Southampton, by getting destroyed at Anfield, and by giving a listless performance against Manchester United. After this match and the one away to Stoke City, Arsenal play Everton in the FA Cup, Bayern Munich away, Tottenham away, Chelsea away, Manchester City, and Everton away, before an easier set of fixtures to end th ...

"'Poyet Effect' Benefitting Sunderland. Analytics types will tell you that on a macro level total wage bill and total net spending are the main predictors of a team success and that firing managers, particularly during the season, has a scant overall effect. That may be accurate in absolute terms, but there are obviously outliers. And that is why managers keep getting the bullet. When Sunderland's Gus Poyet took charge of his first game after taking over from interim boss Kevin Ball, who had himself replaced Paolo Di Canio, his club was dead last in the Premier League, with one point from seven games. Sunderland is still technically in the relegation zone—18th in the table—but it is level on points with West Bromwich Albion in 17th and has played one fewer game. More telling is the "Poyet effect." If the season had begun on October 19, with Poyet's debut at the Sunderland helm, the club would be 10th in the table, despite having played one fewer game than most of its opponents. Include cup competition ...

It has also been questioned why the Anfield club were targeting attackers, such as Mohamed Salah - who went to Chelsea from Basel - and Dnipro Dnipropetrovsk's Yevhen Konoplyanka - who could yet move in the summer - instead of looking at defenders. With the likes of fellow £7million men Iago Aspas and Luis Alberto already going relatively unused as backup to the abundance of attack-minded players in Brendan Rodgers' starting line-ups, the transfer window policy did seem unusual. Not only that but Liverpool also have three attackers out on loan this season who are enjoying excellent campaigns and could return to Merseyside in the next campaign as significantly better players. That makes the pursuit o . ...

Paolo Di Canio has launched a withering tirade at Sunderland duo Phil Bardsley and Lee Cat
United slump, Sunderland out of relegation 01 February 2014, 20:35 Charlie Adam scored twice as Stoke City beat Manchester United 2-1 on Saturday to show the flailing Premier League champions it will take more than one big- money signing to improve their fortunes. The optimism created by Juan Mata's transfer from Chelsea drained away as United were beaten for the third time in their last five league games, losing ground on rivals Everton, who beat Aston Villa 2-1, and Tottenham Hotspur who drew 1-1 at Hull City. United, who fielded Robin van Persie, Wayne Rooney and Mata in a mouth- watering forward line, were again undone at the back. Adam rifled home a spectacular winner in the second half, after Van Persie cancelled out his deflected opener, to leave United seventh on 40 points, five adrift of Everton in fifth and four behind Spurs. Elsewhere, an Adam Johnson-inspired Sunderland recorded a thumping 3-0 win at derby rivals Newcastle United while West Ham United striker Andy Carroll set up both goals but ...

Poor Paolo Di Canio. The one thing he had to cling to was the 3-0 win at St James' Park last season. Now everyone's doing it.
Under Paolo Di Canio, Sunderland averaged 272 passes per game. With Gus Poyet in charge that has risen sharply to 420.
Pardew's golden chance Newcastle manager Alan Pardew feared he would not get to the end of January with Yohan Cabaye still among his ranks, and so it proved, with the 19 million pound deal that took the France midfielder to Paris Saint-Germain representing good business for a 28-year-old midfielder who made it clear he wanted to leave Tyneside. Replacing Cabaye is a task that now falls to Pardew, with his belief that the players he has in his ranks can plug the void left by the star of his midfield set to be put to the test in the most fevered atmosphere imaginable. Sunderland come to St James’ Park on Saturday, and you need to spend a few days in the sporting goldfish bowl that is the North East to appreciate just what this fixture means to a region that will come to a standstill for the biannual domestic dustup. Don’t tell the Tyne-Wear natives that the rest of the world will merely be looking in as casual observers, as when you are involved emotionally in the story, this is the fixture that defines ...

The smile was tattooed on Ellis Short’s face as he shook the hands of journalists, supporters and a legion of well-wishers who hung over the box at Old Trafford to congratulate him on Sunderland’s incredible achievement.

Overheard a West Ham fan today saying he'd like Paolo Di Canio to be their manager.
SEPTEMBER 2013 The summer transfer window slammed shut in September, but only after a number of high-profile signings among Barclays Premier League clubs. Arsenal made the biggest signing of all with hours to spare and ended the month top of the table, helped by a win over Tottenham Hospur, while Manchester City ran out winners in a thrilling Manchester derby and Paolo Di Canio left his post as Sunderland head coach. September started well for Arsenal, as a single Olivier Giroud goal helped them beat North London rivals Spurs at the Emirates Stadium. Arsene Wenger followed the result up by signing Germany and Real Madrid midfielder Mesut Ozil the next day, the final day of the summer transfer window, for a club-record fee. Liverpool made their best start to a Barclays Premier League season since 1994/95 when they beat Manchester United at Anfield on the first day of the month for their third straight 1-0 victory, with each of the goals scored by striker Daniel Sturridge. The Reds then completed a triple s ...

Paolo Di Canio is currently on Italian TV as a pundit and will be revealing all about experience. I'll pass on anything of interest. Hmm. Good old Paolo. Interesting remarks about Steven Fletcher.. "He is not a professional player. He is Mr Relegation. When I arrived at Sunderland, he went to Dubai. No desire to improve as player"... now for his opinion on everybody's best pal, Marty... "He spend £40million and his team is in relegation zone. He did disasters. His program was 4 days free of 7"... "I saw unbelievable things. Player enter pitch with mobile phone in shorts pocket. Players with cramp from driving car".. "To save Sunderland from O'Neill reign was equivalent of winning the champions league. It was a miracle"... now said he hopes Sunderland stay in the Premier League for the fans. It's what we, the fans, deserve. Canio on Fletcher: "every critic of Fletcher is like a graduation for me..." Very angry about Fletcher's attitude.
