Yeah, yeah, yeah-eh-eh, it's a party in the news today.

It's Friday, Friday, Gotta Get... You know the rest. It is indeed Friday though, and it's about time we brought you the final Roker Roundup of the week. Your source for all the SAFC news that's happened today.

Today is of course April 20th, and on this day in Sunderland history in 1906, Robert Carmichael made his debut against Bury. Carmichael played inside right for the club in the 1906/07 season, before deciding he'd had enough and left. Oh well.

Back to today's SAFC news though, here it is...

The Mirror suggests (again) that we're looking to make a move for Gabby Agbonlahor of Aston Villa. After being linked with several Wolves players after playing them last weekend, what's the odds on us being linked with Kevin Davies again after next week's game with Bolton? Yawn - CLICK HERE

The FA have handed out a £30k fine to the club for failing to control our players in the wake of Edin Dzeko's dive in the 3-3 draw at Eastlands the other week. I'm at a loss for words to be honest - CLICK HERE

Michael Turner has gone against what Martin O'Neill has said recently about tiredness, stating that we aren't tired at all, just not playing particularly well. He wants us to do better in the last few games. Can't argue with that at all, but actions speak louder than words - CLICK HERE

Craig Gardner comes up against younger brother Gary at Villa park on Saturday for the first time. They've ambitions of playing for England together (contain yourself, please) and more importantly, using this game to settle up who buys the takeaways - CLICK HERE
