The Week That Was: Big Bolton Buildup & More!

The Week That Was!

Alright there everyone, it's time that we once again brought you everything that's happened on our site this week, meaning you can get yourself ready for today's game with Bolton Wanderers in the best possible style. We've got all the best buildup, and covered the game from all angles, so let's let rip...

  • Preview: Our preview is here with all the team news you'll , some betting tips which are no doubt doomed to failure, some tunes to get you in the mood and our now famously wrong predictions. Get yourself ready for the game now by checking it out - CLICK HERE
  • Fan Focus: This is the ever-popular feature where we talk to a fan or a couple of fans of the opposition to get their take on the game, plus some views on their club in general. This week we spoke to top Bolton blog, Lion of Vienna Suite to see how they feel about today, and the rest of the season - CLICK HERE
  • Cult Heroes: Ah Cult Heroes, where its often someone awesome, but occasionally it's someone who simply played for both, as that's the nature of the article. This week, and running out of people who played for both we profiled Carsten Fredgaard. Why? It was him or Tal Ben-Haim - CLICK HERE
  • Podcast: And if reading is just too much for you, why not listen to us talk our brains on all things SAFC, on the club's only independent podcast, by fans for fans. Enjoy our words - CLICK HERE

And as if that wasn't enough, we have much more for you. So, let's get on to what else we've been spoiling you with on Roker Report this week...

As we like to do on a Monday, we reviewed the weekend's action. So here we are once again casting our tactical eye over the game with Aston Villa, in the feature we've called Talking Tactics...

Coming at it from a totally different angle, we also got all poetic about the Aston Villa game, somehow anyway, so here's what we like to call, and you love to call, Roker Rhymes...

We all got quite amazed when David Boyle managed to chip in with some opinion. He did bloody well too when it came to looking at what Martin O'Neill might be doing this summer. Bargains? Experienced players? It's all on the list and then some, so come take a look...

We also have another Top Ten for you all. After going through some of the brighter lights to come through the Academy Of Light last week, Karl Jones turned his attention to some of the worst to play for the club in recent years, and boy have there been some stinkers...

We also found time for more opinions in Captain's Blog. Sort of backing up what Dave wrote earlier, the Captain discussed how Ellis Short could approach the summer, where it's expected that in this age of Financial Fair Play, prudence will reign...

On Wednesday afternoon, I myself chipped in with some statistical analysis on our strikers. How do the likes of Stephane Sessegnon and Nicklas Bendtner compare? There's not a great deal between them if you look closely. Come have a read for yourself though for this, and more...

We also "Dropped The Gloves" once again, in the feature where we speak to people who don't support SAFC. Those who are editors of other, more independent sites, and get their honest take on our beloved club. Some times it amazes, some times it infuriates. Come see how Simon McPolin of Debatable Decisions got on...

And lastly we used our contacts to have a look inside the brand new issue of SAFC's No.1 Fanzine, A Love Supreme. Inside there you'll see just what you're getting for your money, and there's plenty more amazing stuff away from our column...

And that's it for the week. We've still got stuff over the weekend, including our match report from the Bolton game, to be published shortly after the final whistle, plus we've got our latest column for The Durham Times. If you want even more, there's our nightly news roundup every night, entitled "The Roker Roundup"... Holy moly, we really do spoil you don't we?

We'll be doing it all again next week too!
