The Roker Roundup: May 8th 2012 - SAFC Make Junior Hoilett No.1 Target

It's the final newsdown!

Hello you, welcome back to the Roker Roundup. Your nightly news source for all the SAFC business that's been happening today.

Today is May the 8th, it really is, we would not bullsh*t you, and on this day in history you'll find that Chris Makin celebrates his birthday. One of the best fullbacks we've had in the modern era, I'm sure you'll wish a happy birthday to Chris, and who knows, what with it being his birthday, tonight he might finally score.

Back to the current Sunderland squad, here's today's news...

Graeme Anderson reports that now Blackburn's relegation has been confirmed, we're set to step up a move for their out of contract star, Junior Hoilett. This would be a magnificent signing for us, and hopefully one we can pull off sooner rather than later, making a big statement at the start of the summer - CLICK HERE

Giovanni Trappattoni rightfully selected James McClean in his Irish squad for Euro 2012 yesterday, and spoke up the chances of our man getting some action over in Poland and Ukraine, notably on the right hand side of midfield, which would be quite an interesting change - CLICK HERE

Meanwhile some cretins have continued to disgrace themselves by having nothing better to do to fill their time than abuse young McClean on Twitter - CLICK HERE

Young loanee Billy Knott has certainly impressed during his stint at AFC Wimbledon this season, and we've seen their fans raving about him on numerous occasions. It seems to be universal praise too, as he's just picked up their player of the season award, not bad for a loanee, I'm sure you'll agree? - CLICK HERE

Meanwhile over in the UAE, Asamoah Gyan has spoken of how happy he is there, and has heard nothing from Sunderland. Probably because we're not that fussed about you Asa and are trying to sell you - CLICK HERE

And after eight games without a win, the rota lands on Matt Kilgallon to don the cape of Captain Obvious and tell us all that it would be really good to win this week. It would wouldn't it? - CLICK HERE
