    Dawn Clueless has been like this for years, can't believe anybody is still surprised by her lack of journalist talent.
    She claims to be a big Newcastle Falcons fan but her allegiance is defo black and white.

    Looking forward to this one. Meeting a mate I haven't seen for a few years, going to meet him in Newcastle but, after a swift pint, take him to Sunderland for a pub crawl then onto the match. I fancy the Saltgrass and the ISIS, probably go to the engine room and vesta tilleys, need to go to the museum, but also fancy port of call and the likes round there. Hopefully be so pissed that I don't feel the cold and don't notice if we're ****e, can't wait

    Dread to think the fans reaction if Tranmere take an early lead, just can't get excited about the lads at present but hope we hammer them, but say that with no conviction whatsoever.

    Manager was at the game last night and Kimpioka was taken of after 60 mins and is in the squad for tonight's game, maybe on the bench as cover for whoever gets the spot up front, either McN or Grigg, or both probably.
    I think De Bock is injured. so Hume will probably be at left back although I would prefer him in midfield.
    Is this a game in which to go 3 at the back, it might work watching Sheffield last night was an lesson in flexible defending built around the three CB's that I have ever seen. This video should be used as a training manual, shown to the players daily until they learn how to defend.

    Well at least it's a better guess than the Chronic. Apparently we are only playing with 10 men <laugh><laugh>

    I don't think it's a game to swap to three at the back tbh. That only caused confusion before and that's the last thing we want at this moment.

    Don't think that it's a formation that Parkinson has really employed but even if he has done so previously he's only had two training sessions since he arrived to work on things. It'd be a recipe for disaster imo.

    He'll be looking to keep things simple and not overcomplicate stuff at this stage.

    Go 442 for me. Basic straightforward formation and impose themselves on the opposition.

    Pretty much what I'd go for. Iirc NcNulty has said that he's generally better when paying in a slightly withdrawn role just off the central striker. That would be a good move imo as long as he kept himself in close proximity to Grigg.

    Big night for Sunderland ....Parkinson doesn't have the comfort of a long honeymoon period he really could do with a performance. I guess we will see if the players and the fans are behind him.
