Could be worth a few quid in Ladbrokes, though after the last 2 days, both our odds will have dropped, still fancy West Brom, think the mid week cup game (and that going to penalties) really didn't help them.

What a difference Keano has made to this side. Hopefully he carries that with them in the EPL.

Seems to be a really good manager, comes across as a completely diferent person than he did when he was playing, so cool, calm and collective, never gets excited about anything, and just seems to take everything in his side.

I'm sure I said when he was appointed it would either be a stroke of genius by Sunderland or a disaster, looks like it was a stroke of genius...

Sunderland have sold out there allocation of 7,746 tickets for there match at Oakwell next week!!! There's probably gonna be more away fans than home ones for that game.

I never knew there were clubs that give that many tickets to away fans? Blimey.

How have they got that many, the away end at Oakwell holds 6000, they must be fitting them in somewhere else as well, we're down there soon, will probably be more away fans than home that day as well

Well, they had 11.000 in their last home game against Norwich, but the whole of Oakwell holds around 24.000 I think.

They'll probably extend the away section by giving them parts of the home section too.

They're made for it up there in the north-east, I tell ya. Bloody helll.

well it's the Barnsley game tomorrow, Barnsley can score goals, that new Hungarian striker looks the business, I'm hopeful of an upset in this one

Any team who's promotion hopes (according to Kris Camara) are on Stern John scoring goals, doesn't deserve to be in the Premiership

Why is he playing and Stokes on the bench????

Put a quid on Sunderland winning 3-0. There's good money on that.

If Carlsberg did forum signatures......

2-0 Sunderland, Barnsley gave them a tough game, but eventually Sunderland came through.
