The Roker Roundup: May 3rd 2012 - Ola John Set To Snub Sunderland

Loving news, is easy 'cos you're beautiful...

Alright, we're nearly at the weekend you lucky peoples, and we've got another lovely little Roker Roundup for you. Bringing the best and most interesting SAFC news stories right into your faces.

Today is May 3rd, and on this day in 1997, you'll remember that the last league game at Roker Park took place, as we beat Everton 3-0 thanks to goals from Paul Stewart, Chris Waddle and Allan Johnston, although it was a particularly tainted season which ultimately ended in relegation.

No such worry this year, so forget about that and enjoy today's SAFC news...

Apparently we're chasing FC Twente winger, Ola John. Or at least we were at some point, but the chase is over now as he is set to snub us and Aston Villa and move to Benfica. First and last we may have heard of this one to my knowledge - CLICK HERE

Fraizer Campbell says he's happy to continue to play out wide if it keeps him in the team. Rumour is abound that he'll lose his place to Ahmed Elmohamdy this week, but Fraizer is determined to hold on to the shirt for the remainder of the season - CLICK HERE

Our Ghanaian bretherin, Asante Kotoko, have clinched their 22nd league title. Hey, at least someone connected to the club is winning something, and you never know, they might have some decent players - CLICK HERE

In the forthcoming game against Manchester United, you may be aware that Red fans aren't too happy with the fact their allocation has been cut due to persistent standing. Well, they're not the only ones as our mucker, Martyn McFadden, also thinks it's bad for the game. Call their fans anything you want, they do make a great noise whenever they come up - CLICK HERE

And lastly, remember Allan Johnston? Of course you do, don't be silly. Anyway, he's just been named the new manager of Queen Of The South where he's been playing for the last few years - CLICK HERE
