Still no 6-a-side

We still haven’t managed to play 6-a-side but we have finally managed to get booked up for next thursday so will be making my debut then and can’t wait!

Hopefully we’ll be having a kickabout on Saturday to help with my touch and fitness, I swear I’m better with my knees than with my feet, and then I’ll be at the the Wear-Tyne derby on Sunday – looking forward to it.

This will be the first derby match I’ll have been to – the nerves haven’t kicked in yet, but I’ll be struggling to sleep come saturday night!

Ha’way the lads!

It’ll have to wait and SAFC

We didn’t manage to play 6-a-side last night so I’m still in one piece and just about fully functional.

We couldn’t get enough people at such short notice as well as all the illnesses going around so thought it’d be better to postpone the 6-a-side for a week plus the time slot we want was unavailable.

Must say I’m a bit disappointed we didn’t play but at least it gives me another week to work on my fitness so hopefully I’ll not run out of steam too quickly.

It was a good result on Wednesday night for Sunderland, Villa Park is never an easy place to go to so getting the win and all 3 points seems like a bonus. Unfortunately we picked up a coule of injuries.

Our form man and go to guy of the moment, Danny Welbeck, picked up a hamstring injury which will see him out of action for at least a month and David Meyler, in only his 4th game back after a career threatening knee ligament injury, has injured the same knee although initial reports suggest that the injury isn’t as bad as first feared.

Hopefully we’ll be able to rest a few key players this weekend when we play Notts County in the Cup and come back fighting fit to take on Newcastle in the Wear-Tyne derby on the 16th.

We all live in a Gary Rowell World

The video below pretty much sums up why I love football; It’s the passion of my fellow Sunderland supporters and the feeling of belonging to something and being among like minded people.

I guarantee any Sunderland supporter who watches the video will have the hairs on the back of their neck stand up and feel a surge of pride.

It’s great to be a part of something like this.

I can’t wait to take up my new seat in the North Stand, having moved from the NW corner, let’s get it rocking this season and bring back the Roker Roar!
